Nestled in a protected hill, with a beautiful panorama of the Main Alpine Range, Mt. Perisher and Grosses Plain, snow-capped in winter, Alcheringa represents a truly special opportunity to both live in warm comfort while admiring the ever changing seasonal outlook. All that surrounds you is only supplemented by the North facing, beautifully designed single level brick home which has five bedrooms (all with built ins, master with ensuite) and two bathrooms. There is an entrance sunroom, open plan living/dining room, open plan kitchen/family room, all with stunning views. There is undercroft parking behind the house for direct weatherproof entry. Warm in winter, and cool in summer, Alcheringa is fully double glazed with two slow combustion wood heaters, (one with its own oven). The sliding doors lead to a wide pebble-crete patio and pergola and then to a level lawn, beyond which the land slopes to a lively frog pond, itself the subject of many beautiful photographs in the magical Alpine lights. Both living on the property and visiting daily are the main players of our unique fauna; it is a delightful and open sanctuary for birds and wildlife. At 1270 metres, snow falls from time to time, turning the property into a winter wonderland with tobogganing, snowman building, and the occasional schuss, all on your own property. Alcheringa has friendly neighbours on two sides only, who are nevertheless totally unseen, such is the property’s privacy, peace and solitude.
There is dual access from Old Grosses Road, 1 km from the paved section of the Barry Way on a good gravel private road maintained by all property owners.
It is often said that “this is a one-off property”; in Alcheringa’s case it is holistically true. Don’t miss your opportunity to secure this once-in-a-lifetime property in a truly special part of Australia, and experience a wonderful lifestyle that few other Australians are able to.

Vendor comment: “Alcheringa is a magical place of peace, harmony and dreaming” (2017).
