Known as Troopers Paddock, 1013 Alpine Way is part country-cottage, part snow-retreat.
Built in 1989, and occupying only two owners since, the house is just as stunning as the property on which it resides and is made up of two wings.
The west wing includes three bedrooms, one bathroom, a lounge room, and laundry room. The east wing contains the master bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe, and living area with vaulted ceilings and a slow-combustion wood fireplace.
There is also an entertainer’s kitchen with a concrete benchtop and a Smeg commercial oven and gas cooktop, which the current owners say could lend the home to possible operation as a bed and breakfast.
Opposite the main home is a separate and incredibly charming one-bedroom apartment, with full bathroom and kitchenette that can be rented or used as guest accommodation.
The property has absolute Alpine Way frontage and is just five minutes from the Perisher Ski Tube and 15 minutes to Thredbo Resort.
