Located high above the surrounding vineyards with 360 degree views from Brokenback Range to Bimbadgen Estate, this twenty-seven acre country estate is very privately set in the beating heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country and features a sprawling country homestead and two self-contained cottages set on park-like grounds.
As you arrive at the property you are greeted by the impressive remote-controlled gates which set your expectations of what is to come. Driving past the two cottages up to the main homestead you are surrounded by easy-care manicured lawns with an established fruit orchard, select stands of native timber and freshly-planted hedges. Stepping inside the sprawling rendered home you are greeted by an open and airy living space with roaring wood-burning fire, dining room and kitchen which flow to outside living spaces on each side of the house. The galley-style kitchen features stainless European appliances, stone tops and luxury fittings and has a massive walk-in pantry (which is almost as big as the walk-in linen press). At one end of the home are two large and well-appointed guest suites complete with bathroom, external access and basic amenities – idea and in fact approved to be used as tourist accommodation. At the other is a powder room, linen press, huge master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite and laundry complete with wine storage.
Outside of the home are wide paved verandas that hug the entire property with sweeping views, paved outdoor spaces and a summer house (or games room/teenage retreat) with undercover access. A wander through the lightly timbered grounds reveals two self-contained cottages each with two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and open living space spilling out to an open veranda with private views of the neighbouring vineyards and the resident kangaroos. Currently used only as a private estate, these cottages are approved for tourist accommodation and would rate as some of the most luxurious accommodation in the Hunter Valley.
Beyond the cottages is an abundance of cleared open land with two large earth dams stocked with various breeds of fish and yabbies, a massive machinery shed with bathroom facilities and panoramic views that are difficult to match. This property is everything the market has been looking for and so rarely offered. It is in immaculate condition having only ever been used by the owners as a private country estate on the weekends. It is moments to surrounding vineyards, concert venues like Bimbadgen Estate and Hope Estate, within walking distance to The Vintage Golf Resort and within five minutes of the Hunter Expressway taking you to Hornsby in less than ninety minutes.
A perfect tree change or an opulent weekender that would show a very healthy return if offered as accommodation when it is not being used (complete management of the accommodation can very easily be organised). This is country living at its best.
