Chinaman’s kilnhouse is modern, light, sophisticated and luxurious. It takes its name from the close association between early Chinese settlement and the Ovens & Buckland Valleys.

Chinamans features a single kiln with 2 bedrooms and is easily recognized by the distinctive ‘Chinese hat’ perched on top of the kiln. The interior has been thoughtfully designed by interior designer Russell Grainger, with stunning architectural and Scandinavian inspired design features.

Elegant living

Chinamans has a generous living space with a soaring ceiling, elegantly lined with pale washed timber. The sun filled window seat offers panoramic views of Mt Buffalo and the Ovens Valley beyond.

The kitchen is comprehensively equipped for gourmet cooking and opens out to an internal, hutong style courtyard with secluded views across the farm.

All season comfort

For wintery days, Chinamans kilnhouse features a wood fire as well as heated polished concrete floors to keep you cozy and warm.

On warmer days the adjustable louvres perfectly catch the breeze, and when full summer hits there is air conditioning to keep the house cool.

Two outdoor eating and relaxing areas are formed by the courtyard and the wrap around verandah.

Wake up to king sized views

The main bedroom has a king sized bed, and floor to ceiling windows provide views of Mt Buffalo.

The second bedroom has 2 single beds that can also be combined to form a king size bed.

Chinamans kilnhouse features a separate spacious bathroom and shower room.
