Duneira Winter House Tours with Morning Tea - SOLD OUT
WINTER HOUSE TOURS WITH MORNING TEA
If you're looking for something to do on a cold winter's day then look no further!
Duneira is running guided Winter House tours showcasing Stuart Stoneman's extensive Art Collection.
Stoneman was Duneira's last owner who, upon his death in 2002, bequeathed his estate and his collections to the care of the S.R.Stoneman Foundation.
Duneira estate is an historically significant original hill station on the southern slopes of Mount Macedon.
The main residence was built between 1874-1875 as a summer residence for pastoralist Suetonius Officer.
It was designed by architect Levi Powell and has an Italianate villa style exterior while the internal layout is similar to that of a neo-classical English country house.
Duneira is considered to be the 'jewel in the crown' of the few remaining grand hill stations left intact on Mt Macedon after the devasting bushfires of 1983.
Along with the Stoneman Art Collection, the house features an extensive library, Persian rugs, grand pianos and interesting period furniture.
During this tour our knowledgeable guide will provide fascinating insights into the story of Duneira and it's six owners.
This tour includes morning tea in the newly restored Stables.
We hope to see you there!
