About our home

Our home was renovated and extended in 2013. Our home is open, with large windows looking towards the mountains and the ovens river at our back fence. Our open fire is the heart of our home, we also have a fire in the kitchen featuring an oven for true country cooking (miele oven for those not so enthusiastic).
Our home has one very large bedroom with new bathroom and all the features as seen in photos. Featuring a queen bed, with the possibility of adding a single bed and/or cot. We have four bedrooms, 3 with queen beds and the 4th has a single bed.
We live right on the ovens river, which is the reason we purchased the land, 15 meters and your at our very private swimming hole, kayaks and lovely reading swing, and an outdoor shower, all with amazing views. Our home is actually 5km from Bright just off the great Alpine road, in a town called POREPUNKAH! However it is such a well kept secret most people only know about BRIGHT!
Hydronic heating in winter and all miele appliances our home has a wonderful kitchen, great sound system and television room all connected to Wifi.
We live 30 meters from our local cafe, great coffee, specialising in Mexican food, a real gem in such a small community. We are also on the rail trail bike trail, a beautiful 5km ride into Bright. Bright is one of Victoria's premier holiday towns, amazing restaurants, cycling and gateway to ski slopes.
Our home is truly unique and the photos are best able to describe our home.
our home is 4 bedroom 2 bathroom however we are still adding finishing touches to one of the Bathrooms.
