Kenobi St Moritz Cabin is a charming cottage which truly embodies the traditional log-house feel and experience!

Set within the quiet area of St Moritz with family holiday homes, villas and chalets, this quaint cottage benefits from its close proximity to Hirafu. Yet retains a peaceful feel and atmosphere compared to the madness mere minutes away with all the hustle and bustle which it is so famous and loved for.

Kenobi is all of 3mins drive to the centre of Hirafu, and therefore only an approximate 5mins drive to all of the ski lifts within the area.

Niseko Village and Annupuri & Moiwa are also a short 10-15mins drive west, with Hanazono and Kutchan the same distance going east.

A free shuttle bus runs from Hirafu to St Moritz and stops outside the Always Hotel 100m walk from Kenobi.

With 3 decent sized bedrooms, plus a potential 4th, currently used as an office, this house can easily and happily home a large family, a group of friends or even 2 families holidaying together.

The lower floor comprises the living-dining-kitchen space with a beautiful vaulted, double height ceiling, as well as the master bedroom, bathroom and toilet. The living room benefits from a genuine wood burning fireplace and stove-top which not only heats the house beautifully, but also creates that idillic winter experience.

The upper floor comprises 2 further bedrooms and the study/office which is also utilised as a kids/tv room and can be used to also act as a 4th, small, bedroom.

The current owner wisely added a beautifully crafted deck area which flows off the living-room. Making the inside space feel even more spacious, and provides a perfect area for entertaining, BBQs, parties, evening sunset drinks as well as a place for a Christmas tree and snowmen building during winter.

Properties with this much character and charm are increasingly hard to come by!

With similar styled, and often smaller, properties in the Lower Village of Hirafu now asking over double this listed price, this property is expected to sell before the end of winter.

Strong bookings this winter, and already requests for next winter, make Kenobi not only a perfect family holiday home - but also a wise and strategic investment play for the next 5+ years.
