This architect-designed beauty sits on the fertile banks of the Hunter River and offers a main homestead and guest quarters, significant shedding, horse stables, airplane-hanger, beach-like frontage to the river and several paddocks of excellent grazing country.
Set among meticulously landscaped gardens, the modern homestead is striking against the lush green surrounds. The main home offers open and spacious living areas which flow seamlessly to outdoor living spaces and the home is filled with natural light. The main living space offers a bar, dining and lounge area flanked on both sides by covered and open living spaces. The living area flows through to an open galley-style kitchen with stainless appliances and stone tops. A second adjoining living space offers spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and leads to the three bedrooms all of which have built-in robes except the main which has a walk-in robe and ensuite which opens to a private courtyard and garden. The laundry is well-proportioned, and plenty of storage as well as a main bathroom with its own private courtyard and garden complete the home. It is kept comfortable all year round by reverse-cycle air conditioning and a wood burning combustion fire.
Adjoining the main home by covered walkway is a fully self-contained guest cottage which also overlooks the surrounding gardens and countryside. It offers a generous living space, fully-equipped kitchen and ensuited bedroom – perfect for guests, older children or parents. An additional triple garage with its own bathroom is also connected by the central covered walkway. An additional workshop with large mezzanine loft provides excellent work-space and yet another airplane hangar mean you can’t have too many toys. Two horse stables, multiple paddocks with good fencing and excellent pasture mean there’s also space for the four-legged family. Water storage is exceptional.
Located within 15 minutes of the concerts, golf-courses and restaurants of Hunter Valley Wine Country, Rowantide is on the fringe of Maitland and less than one hour to Newcastle and 2 hours to Sydney.
