The house featured in the Kath & Kim TV show will be demolished


The iconic house used in the Kath & Kim TV series will be demolished this week.

Known affectionately in the series as “Chateau Kath”, the four-bedroom property is said to reside in the fictional suburb of Fountain Lakes.

Located in the Melbourne suburb of Patterson Lakes, the home last sold in 2016 for $1.485 million.

The ABC rented the house during the series from 2002 to 2007.

The house was newly renovated in 2019, after the owner of the house hosted an open house to raise money for Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer.

Pete Rowsthorn, who played Brett on the TV show, said the house was both memorable and eerie.

“It was a weird house, if I bought it I would probably tear it down too,” Rowsthorn told ABC Melbourne radio.

“There were very small parts…the rear door creaking, it was all natural sound. There was no noisemaker to put that on.”

Rowsthorn said the house hosted a large number of stars over the course of the series.

“I played cricket in the garden with Shane Warne, I danced in the garage with Kylie Minogue, I sat and dined with Barry Humphries dressed as a monk,” he said.

But he played down any rumors of a reunion for the programme’s 20th anniversary.

“Not that I’ve heard of it, but I’m always the last to know,” he said.

“I always contact Glenn [Robbins] and everyone else, nothing has been said so far.”
