Inside Mount Buller’s most exclusive chalet
A "generational opportunity" to buy one of Mount Buller's most significant chalets has hit the slopes - just in time for winter.
The grand Winterbrook Chalet takes luxury alpine living to new heights, featuring nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Adams Estate Agents' Zach Adams - whose agency shares the listing with Castran Real Estate - said no other private chalet on the mountain offered 450sq m of "indulgent living space".
The pad at 30 The Avenue is on the market with a $3.5m price tag.
"You can sleep up to 32 people, so it's an enormous place and it really does impress everyone who comes in," Mr Adams said.
"It's definitely a generational opportunity because private chalets don't come around all too often. To be able to have full control of a place this size, it's unheard of."
He said chalets on the mountain were tightly held, with buyers often passing the property down to their children.
Alpine-inspired living spaces "oozed natural light" throughout the property, and a floor-to-ceiling glass atrium was the perfect place to watch the snow fall.
The pad also offered spectacular vistas of Mount Stirling, The Bluff and beyond.
"You're a second from Bourke Street and you're moments from Buller's main ski run," Mr Adams said. "The multiple living zones and two commercially appointed kitchens are a huge benefit so you can entertain large groups in complete luxury."
Double-glazed windows, hydronic heating, cathedral ceilings and a stone fireplace added to the cosy atmosphere, and equipped the home for the icy weather.
Mr Adams noted the property also had potential to be run as a "commercial business".
"It's currently operating as a superior boutique chalet, offering premium rooms on casual basis for 10 weeks a year," he said.
"But you could even do it all year round, with mountain biking increasing on the mountain in the warmer months."
The agent said Mount Buller's real estate market was "as strong as it's ever been", with record results recorded across the region and his team recording more than 100 sales in the mountain's village over the past 24 months.
"Usually we have 20-30 properties on the market, but from the end of last winter, we sold most of our stock - and there are still so many buyers."
He said buyers had favoured Mount Buller's family-oriented village and closeness to Melbourne over other alpine regions.
