Set in a boutique vineyard in the beating-heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, this diversified tourism opportunity offers a massive five bedroom family home, four guest cottages, a cellar door, art gallery, café and winery and is also a part of the famous Lovedale Long Lunch.
Abundant in opportunity, the property is located on one of the most scenic tourist drives in the region and is set in leafy park-like grounds. The property is centred around a main pavilion which houses the cellar door, gallery, café and winery and the surrounding gardens and lawns have recently been licensed providing even more opportunity. Polished concrete floors and pale grey walls give the cellar door and gallery a warm and inviting feel and the adjoining café which seats 40 with additional seating available on the terrace, is fully equipped and can be owner-operated or easily let out to another operator. Similarly, an adjoining 20 tonne winery can be used to make the estate wines or can be let for yet another income stream.
The four cottages are set privately overlooking the grounds and the vineyards. There are two, two bedroom cottages, a three bedroom cottage and a four bedroom cottage – all are fully furnished and capable of sleeping a total of 22 guests.
A huge double-storey main residence sits very privately at the rear of the property and offers another five bedrooms, three bathrooms and multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces. Modern in design, the home is spacious, offers breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside and can be used as owner accommodation or as further guest accommodation providing yet another income stream.
The property also holds a stake in the exclusive and very lucrative Lovedale Long Lunch which caters for the 18,000 guests who participate in the event. For the last 25 years for one weekend in May this property and the six other estates in Lovedale host this progressive style wine and food lunch.
The property can be owner-operated as it is now or easily set up with a series of tenancies and contracts to suit the lifestyle of the purchaser while still proving a good income.
The property is complete with good water infrastructure including a PID irrigation allocation, excellent water storage and multiple machinery and storage sheds.
Inspection strictly by appointment.
