Steeped in history and located on the fringe of Maitland in the picturesque Hunter Valley, this abundantly fertile property is convenient to the vineyards, restaurants and concert venues of Hunter Valley Wine Country and the beautiful historic villages of Lorn and Morpeth. It comes complete with a fruit orchard to die for and a dining table underneath a Willow Tree on the bank of the river.
Magnificent 100 year old Moreton Bay and Port Jackson Fig Trees are framed by established hedgerows and provide the perfect setting for one of the area’s finest homes. The fully renovated Victorian homestead is set high on an elevated plateau overlooking more than 100 acres of rich river-flats and elevated countryside and has deep water frontage to the Paterson River, horse stables, a converted office/guest building and recently re-surfaced tennis court.
As you arrive you are guided by a beautifully lit tree-lined driveway to the main homestead. Wrapped by wide open verandas, the home has four spacious bedrooms with many of the original features like the Italian Marble entry retaining the charm and beauty of the Victorian Era. During the current ownership the homestead has been re-roofed, re-wired and re-plumbed. It has received a new kitchen, two new bathrooms and new flooring inside and out and is kept comfortable year-round by multiple wood-burning fireplaces and new reverse cycle air-conditioners. An African Rain Tree dominates the entertainment terrace which provides a shady green canopy in Summer and loses its leaves in Winter to admit the Winter sun.
Ideally set-up as a horse or cattle stud, there are two stables with day yards and tack room, cattle yards, loading race, large hay shed, additional machinery shed with three phase power and abundant water with creek and river frontage, three dams and massive irrigation licence.
The property is around 45 minutes to Newcastle and two hours to Sydney making it a perfect Country Home, Part Time Home or Weekender.
A must see, inspection is strictly by private appointment.
