LOCHINVAR HOUSE

 

Set amongst the gently rolling hills of the Lochinvar district, Lochinvar House on Kaludah Estate invites you to relive the splendour enjoyed by Australia's colonial gentry.

In 1822, this gracious country estate was granted to Scottish immigrant Leslie Duguid, a founding director of the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney and socialite amongst Sydney's brilliant high society.

Lochinvar House (1841) features all the trappings you would expect from a grand country house of that era including 15ft ornate plaster ceilings, grand entrance and dining room, sitting rooms, spacious luxuriously appointed bedrooms, and an elaborate marble main bathroom with the largest bath you have ever seen.

Lochinvar House boasts a collection of traditional Australian and Oriental art, a tribute to the original owner's love of fine art.

Commercial wine growing commenced on this property in 1840. Wines were sold under the "Kaludah" label and the property was a renowned vineyard with considerable quantities of wine being produced. The ruins of the old cellar, complete with convict carved sandstone and kilned bricks lie just beside the main house.
