The Kilnhouses

Location: Cavedons lane, Porepunkah VIC 3740

Accommodation – Modern, architect-designed houses

Staying at the Kilnhouses is a unique experience where contemporary luxury and design is combined with the stunning beauty of the Ovens Valley high country landscape in Porepunkah near Bright in north east Victoria. Three houses – Cavedon’s Kilnhouse, Chinaman’s Kilnhouse and The Sorting Shed – are each in a separate part of a working angus cattle stud. All of the houses fit naturally within the local rural environment and have spectacular views of Mount Buffalo, Feathertop and Bogong, with grape vines and sleek black angus cattle in the foreground.

Staying at the kilnhouses is a unique experience where contemporary luxury and design is combined with the stunning beauty of the ovens valley landscape. Situated near Porepunkah, at the base of Mount Buffalo, close to the river, amidst a working angus cattle stud – Alpine Angus. The three houses – each in a separate part of the farm – all have spectacular views of Mount Buffalo, Feathertop and Bogong, with grape vines and sleek black angus cattle in the foreground.

Each of the houses fits naturally within the local rural environment. The tobacco kiln shapes of Cavedon’s and Chinaman’s are seen dotted throughout the Ovens Valley. Concrete sheds, and more recently iron sheds, were used for sorting the tobacco and the imposing ‘Sorting Shed’ kilnhouse draws from the original kiln and sorting shed on the farm.

Each house was developed and designed by Sally Draper (architect), and Russell Grainger (interior designer). Local builder Craig Martin built all 3 houses.

So… the experience is a unique and contemporary one – combining the beauty of the north east valley and its vistas of mountains, grapes, trees and glorious weather with uniquely modern accommodation.

Within each of the kilnhouses, huge glass windows frame views of trees, mountains, nearby cattle and a deep blue sky. You live within stunning architectural structures and spaces complemented by elegant and comfortable interior furniture and outside a Tuscan like environment – except for the kookaburras.

The outdoor beauty combined with the elegant and simple houses …calms …restores …and inspires.
