A very rare, golden opportunity has arisen to acquire one of the Hunter Valleys most historic and productive properties. “Heatherdene” is a gorgeous circa 1881 late Victorian homestead set on 40 productive acres and having a wonderful 300 metre direct frontage to the mighty Hunter River. Located just one minute from East Maitland shops and minutes from Greenhills shopping centre, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
The stunning homestead has 4 bedrooms and features 14 foot ceilings and marble fireplaces. The living areas have been lovingly renovated and are just a delight to walk through and inspect. Each of the rooms are very spacious and true to the classic Victorian style. The homestead has split system air conditioning along with gas heating and is connected to town water. NBN connected as well.
All of the block is first class alluvial soil and ideally suited for many intensive farming pursuits. The property is currently growing potatoes and the Lucerne crops are being used for hay production. The jewel in the crown is the 132 meg irrigation licence that provides the water for the property if needed. The pump by the river irrigates each of the blocks via underground pipes effectively ‘drought-proofing” the property. The block also has some lovely grazing land near the river.
Centrally located on the property there is a 14 x 17 metre hay and silage shed and there is a 3 bay shed and workshop at the rear of the homestead.
The zoning is RU1 which allows dual occupancy and a large number of options for the use of the property.
Nearby and within minutes are a number of East Maitland schools including Hunter Valley Grammar. Shopping is also just minutes away with the new Greenhills shopping centre and the historic township of Morpeth on your door step. Access is easy to Newcastle, Maitland and Port Stephens, a mere 30 minutes drive to The Hunter Valley Vineyards and just 2 hours drive from Sydney. This is the perfect property to live, create an income or just enjoy a special quality of life!
