Escape to the countryside this winter at a chalet-inspired lifestyle retreat in Kinglake West.

This unique home in a natural bush setting looks like something straight out of a fairytale.

Selling agent Tom Egan said he had never seen a house like the one at 91 Peregrine Drive in Kinglake.

The kitchen has been updated.

“It is very unique and has individual style. It stands out for all the right reasons,” Mr Egan said.

The rustic home, which is on the market for $830,000-$870,000, is spread over two levels and could suit dual family accommodation.

A renovated country-style kitchen has timber benchtops and white cabinetry, as well as a picturesque view out to the established gardens surrounding the home.

The impressive outdoor entertainment space with bar.

The adjoining lounge and dining area is heated via a cosy wood fireplace and flows outside to a covered entertainment area with built-in bar.

Upstairs is a second living area and three bedrooms.

Here, exposed timber beams in the cathedral ceiling add to the chalet style of the home.

The bathroom has a rustic timber finish.

The property also has equine facilities.

As well as the picturesque home and established gardens, the 2.02ha property also has established equine facilities.

There is a barn with two stables and high clearance storage for a horse float, plus holding yards and three paddocks.

Mr Egan said the property would suit someone looking for a “change of pace”.

“It could suit dual families as there are bathrooms and living areas on both levels, or upstairs could be a teenager’s retreat,” he said.
