Sitting high above the Hunter River on the fringe of Maitland and Hunter Valley Wine Country, this brand-new architect-designed masterpiece offers north facing panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and is less than two hours from Sydney and one hour from Newcastle.
Designed by EJE Architecture and completed in 2014, this modern-country Hamptons style home is centred around a large open living space with spectacular timber lined cathedral ceilings and a warm sandstone fireplace. The open living space flows seamlessly to a large covered outdoor living area and is flanked by a stunning country-kitchen with Carrara marble accents, stone tops, European appliances and a centre island with a hardwood benchtop.
The balance of the home is separated into two wings; at one end is an oversized main-bedroom with large walk-in-robe and beautifully appointed ensuite as well as an additional guest bedroom with built-in robe and both of these rooms open to the decking which extends the length of the house and offers stunning views over the river and beyond. This wing also houses a staircase to an underground wine cellar, large laundry and utility room and triple underground garage with exceptional storage and electronic doors.
At the other end of the home are another two bedrooms with built-in robes and a main three-way bathroom with freestanding tub. There is also a second living space/theatre room/library/teenage retreat which again flows to the outdoor living space and offers uninterrupted views of the rolling countryside.
The entire house is kept comfortable year-round by a wood-burning fireplace, ducted air-conditioning and has performance-glazed windows throughout. Adjacent to the main home is an additional four bay machinery shed and the property is well-watered by earth dams and excellent frontage to the Hunter River.
A perfect weekend retreat, tree-change or potential horse-stud or cattle property, it is immaculately presented and priced to sell.
Inspection is by private appointment.
