Located in the beating heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, this spectacular 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom homestead is complete with in-ground pool, triple garage and three bedroom guest cottage and is set privately in the middle of an established olive grove.
The double-storey main homestead is Hamptons inspired and flanked on most sides by open patios, vine-covered decks and second-storey balconies. Plantings of iceberg roses and clipped hedges lead you to the front door and inside mirror finish floorboards, high ceilings and light-filled living spaces give you a beautiful first impression. A grand open lounge complete with wood-burning fireplace is the heart of the home and it opens on one side to an outdoor living area and on the other to a combined dining and brand-new shaker-style kitchen with iconic Smeg appliances and lambs-tongue 40mm stone tops. A guest powder room, laundry and huge ensuited bedroom with it’s own wood fire complete the ground floor. Upstairs are another three huge bedrooms all with ensuites, wood fires and French doors opening to private balconies overlooking the gardens and surrounding olive grove. The entire house is heated and cooled by multiple wood burning stoves and multiple reverse-cycle air-conditioners.
Outside, a brand-new in-ground pool is wrapped in travertine paving and beautifully landscaped with a water feature. A hot-tub sits out under the stars for the cooler months and a brand-new triple bay garage and underground concrete water tanks are hidden on the private side of the house away from sight. An additional brand-new machinery shed is set at the rear of the property with two open bays and an enclosed bay (power connected) and new fencing makes it suitable for horses or cattle. Water is plentiful with two amazing dams and irrigation from the Hunter Wine Country Private Irrigation District Scheme and reticulation throughout the property makes it accessible everywhere you need it.
Finally, a three bedroom, two bathroom guest cottage is set a good distance from the main homestead among an established fruit orchard and offers private peaceful views over the surrounding countryside. This cottage has an established tourist-accommodation income and could also be used for extended family or friends.
Less than two hours to Sydney and 35 minutes to Newcastle owing to the very convenient access to the Hunter Expressway, this property is walking distance to a number of cellar doors and ten minutes from the nearest supermarket.
