Set in stands of Casuarinas and over-looking the peaceful billabongs, this profitable lifestyle property sprawls over some twenty park-like acres among the vineyards and wineries of beautiful Hunter Valley Wine Country. Finished to a very high standard, the main homestead and five cottages have an authentic Australian feel and are complimented by a salt water in-ground pool, private hot-tub, golf putting and chipping green and spectacular views. The property is cleverly targeted at the top-end of the market and has consistently shown solid commercial returns.
Separated into multiple pavilions, the main homestead has a centralised living space, a main bedroom pavilion and a guest wing all of which are connected by covered verandas and light-filled glass corridors. The resort-style main bedroom pavilion has a massive walk-in robe, plenty of space and a cleverly designed indoor/outdoor bathroom. The central living space is open plan with ducted air conditioning and a slow combustion fire and the entire property is completed by French doors and double hung windows which open to the wide open verandas.
Each of the five cottages have their own distinct point of difference but are in-keeping with the full brick construction and wrap-around verandas. Billabong Cottage is a two bedroom two bathroom cottage set over a beautiful billabong with two large decks and a screened summerhouse off the upper deck. Casuarina Cottage is also two bedroom and two bathroom and is set in its very own Casuarina forest with a gazebo at the back of the cottage and its own private hot-tub in the forest under the stars.
There are also three one bedroom cottages. Sunset ridge is set on the highest point of the property with spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards to the Brokenback Range. Treetops cottage is different again and is built more than three metres off the ground to be in the canopy of the surrounding trees and has its very own outdoor bath among the trees. Finally, the Studio completes the picture in keeping with the rest of the cottages.
The property itself is cleverly landscaped to keep all of the cottages very private with minimal maintenance. It has an in-ground salt water pool and cabana, plenty of machinery shedding, a brick double garage, car-ports and a large storage shed. There is excellent road infrastructure internally and in addition to the earth dam on the property, the property has the benefit of seven megs of PID water from the Hunter River.
