A raft of secluded cabins have hit the market across Victoria, offering the perfect hideaway for those wanting to bunker down this winter.
Whether buyers are looking for a coastal, regional or even snowy retreat, there’s plenty to choose from in a range of different prices.
Keen skiers or snowboarders have the chance to snap up two glamorous apartments at the Koki Alpine Resort in the heart of Falls Creek village.
Both suites were stylishly designed by renowned Melbourne, Sydney and Hong Kong-based firm, Kerry Phelan Design Office.
Living rooms and bedrooms look directly out onto the snowy mountains and both pads come fully furnished with pieces that wouldn’t look out place in a magazine.
An open fire place makes the living room the perfect place to get cosy after a day on the snow fields, while stylish, marble-clad kitchens and bathrooms offer the height of luxury.
Both apartments are listed with Zirky Real Estate Alpine agents Christina Smit and Sam Perry.
Meanwhile, in the seaside town of Inverloch, a renovated four-bedroom cabin has been listed for $1.295m.
The cedar cottage at 182 Surf Pde was built in 1970, but the current vendors bought it in 2020 for $845,000, according to CoreLogic.
Since then, they’ve restored the home to feature a stylish and modern interior without compromising the original charm.
Stained glass windows remain throughout, while the original hardwood floorboards were polished and white washed.
Although the vendors renovated the now stylish, contemporary bathrooms, the blue claw foot tub from the original bathroom is placed in the garden alongside a rainfall showerhead for a luxurious outdoor bathing experience.
“They’ve used as much of the original pieces as possible,” Alex Scott & Staff Inverloch agent Marni Lee Redmond said.
Ms Redmond said more than twelve groups came through the home at the first open for inspection, who loved the location and direct access to the surf beach across the road.
“It feels very relaxed, you can imagine walking through with sand on your feet from the beach,” she said.
“It’s the perfect blend between old and modern.”
Near Ballarat in Canadian, a three-beedroom stone cabin has an $850,000-$895,000 price tag.
Set on a vast 2198sq m block, the 1-3 Stanbury Ave home offers the perfect space for country living.
Inside, timber walls and exposed beams complete the rustic, cabin feel, while a wraparound outdoor deck provides views across Mt Warrenheip and Mt Buninyong.
Plus, an established vegetable garden, fruit trees and a self-contained cottage also lie on the property, the latter featuring a small kitchen, bathroom and laundry.
Ray White Ballarat agent Mark Williams said this space had been used as an Air BnB and accommodation for those wanting to visit nearby Ballarat and Sovereign Hill.
“People could ramp that up and have a genuine, regular income,” he said.
Mr Williams added that as the property is on two titles, there’s also potential for buyers to subdivide.
The home last sold in 2017 for $432,000.
Just outside of Bendigo in Axe Creek, a two-bedroom cabin, dubbed Barroworn Cottage – the indigenous word for magpie – is for sale for $685,000-$750,000.
On a sprawling 8.09ha property, the 67 Curtis Rd pad is appealing for those wanting to live a sustainable lifestyle — with two dams, solar power, a vegetable garden, orchard and chook yard with hens all included in the sale.
The mud brick home features cedar, colonial-style windows, exposed beams and a pine-lined ceiling, in addition to a self-contained, fully insulated bungalow.
Elders Real Estate Bendigo auctioneer Wayne Heard has the listing.
And in the Mansfield region, a three-bedroom timber cabin is on the market at 125 Tolmie-Mahaikah Rd, Tolmie.
Featuring an open fireplace and surrounded by natural bushland, it’s the perfect place to escape this winter.
The 3.1ha property has a $675,000 asking price and is listed with Clark & Co Real Estate Mansfield agent Catherine Pigdon and principal Andrew Clark.
