Crackenback Stables

by Casey Brown Architecture

Rob Brown is a fantastic architect. He's brought many an old timber house back to life and recently turned his hand to the best shed he could possibly design, for highly esteemed builder John Fielding, founder and MD of Bellevarde Constructions (the company that built Deepwater, by Tobias Partners).

You could search the entire country and probably never find such a meticulously detailed stable and apartment (a country home for horses and people) as this one at the foot of the Snowy Mountains in southern NSW. It conjures up visions of the Man from Snowy River, only with modern conveniences. It's enough to make me want to take up horse riding.
