Set in the beating-heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, this spectacular property will undoubtedly be the most talked-about listing to come to market this year.
Sprawling over 25 elevated acres, the property features a luxurious homestead with pool and tennis court, cellar door, restaurant, winery, additional cottage and a boutique vineyard. It is surrounded by other vineyards, restaurants, golf-courses and concert venues and offers breathtaking views of the Brokenback Range.
As you arrive at the property you are greeted by hundreds of iceberg roses which line the circular driveway and lead you to the formal entrance of the grand country home. Obviously inspired by traditional early Victorian architecture, the property features external stonework walls and verandas which wrap the entire property. Stepping inside, high ceilings, custom joinery and ornate plasterwork set a level of expectation which, surprisingly, is only exceeded as you move through the home. Offering six bedrooms, three marble bathrooms with underfloor heating, two open fireplaces and multiple large dining and lounge areas, the indoor and outdoor spaces are connected beautifully by French doors and large timber windows. The timber kitchen is a feature of the home, with double Paul Bacus stove with gas cook top and electric ovens, central marble island and loads of bench space.
Adjoining the homestead is a cellar door and restaurant with dining for up to 60 guests. This space was previously a second residence and could easily be returned to its previous use or incorporated as additional living space in the main residence. The nearby winery is fully-equipped and can process up to 40 tonnes of fruit. A vegetable garden and orchard, plentiful water and a stunning setting complete the picture.
Inspection by private appointment.
