Air Chalet # 12

The site was leased to Clonport Pty Ltd as trustee for the Finlen Family TRust No 2.The air chalet was build by Bill Finlen and Jenny Shead in 2000. One of the more charming chalets in the precinct, it has set a standard of architecture that so far (2010) hasn't been exceeded. The design and builder was a company called "Paradise Homes"
