Are you after something really special and not just the run of the mill? Then look no further because Cobby’s is that rare and amazing property, the one that everyone is envious of. The 2.5ac property is clearly the stand out as a stunning entrance to a semi-rural village just minutes from the Hunter Valley Vineyards.
Cobby’s has to be seen to be believed and is constructed with a wide range of materials most of which were locally sourced and full of history. Materials obtained for the construction of this home are priceless and to replicate them would be near impossible.
Reconstituted sandstone, solid hardwood facia boards, convict sparrow peck block work, external and internal Oregon boards are just the beginning. 100 year old oak wine casks have been used for the kitchen cupboards, quality appliances and fittings are featured throughout, recycled Oregon timbers from the Newcastle Grace Bros. building were used to create exposed roof beams which compliment ceiling lining boards salvaged from the demolition of The Cessnock Sports Ground.
Timber Stable walls constructed in a traditional style with 100 year old hand hewn slabs salvaged from an old shop building in Morpeth. A 9 metre tall Adobe rendered fire place makes a stately impression and radiates heat from the masonry chimney heating the whole home. Around the hearth is a natural tree form seat made of hoop pine, the perfect place to sit with a glass of Hunter Red wine on those chilly winter days.
Double front Barn doors were handmade and constructed from Australian hardwood. There are 8 sets of Cedar French doors, upstairs that open onto balcony’s at both ends of the house from the bedrooms. Beautiful polyurethane red floors set an intimate party scene in the spacious downstairs living area’s with an Oregon staircase leading the way to the upstairs bedrooms featuring lovely hardwood timber floors. The imported Italian tiles in the bathrooms add a quirky touch along with hand glazed tree frog feature tiles.
The icing on the cake to this impressive property is the equally impressive building comprising a double garage with an upstairs loft, studio, sleep out and bathroom is joined by an undercover breezeway which makes the perfect outdoor entertainment area.
This property could also make a very attractive income earner as well as a private weekend retreat to a possible investor. Cobbys is located in peaceful surrounds and only 30 mins from the M1 Freeway, 15 minutes from Cessnock and the vineyards and 1hr to Newcastle.
