Privately set on 21 natural acres in the heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country, this gorgeous country farmhouse oozes charm and character. It is surrounded by vineyards, restaurants and concert venues and is moments to the new town of Huntlee and the Hunter Expressway making it an easy 45 minute drive to Newcastle and just 2 hours to Sydney.
A unique fusion of Federation homestead and elevated Queenslander, the home is hugged by wide covered verandas with French doors and stained-glass windows. Inside, a large light-filled lounge and dining is centred around a wood-burning fireplace and the adjoining farmhouse kitchen is complete with a 900mm Stainless cooker. The kitchen lounge and dining flow thorough French doors to the verandah and large covered entertaining pavilion where long-lunches, candlelit dinners and afternoons in the hammock are daily life. Beautiful original timber floorboards and very high ceilings feature throughout the home and three good sized bedrooms offer plenty of accommodation. Both guest rooms have French doors which also open to the verandahs and the main has a spacious new ensuite and walk-in robe. The ensuite has been recently refreshed with beautiful Italian tiles and the main features a claw foot bath and deep butler sink. The home is kept comfortable year-round by reverse-cycle air conditioning and a wood-burning fireplace.
Outside, a nearby tiny-house provides additional accommodation for friends or family and a large covered carport with enclosed storage keep the cars out of the weather. Cute accents like a timber-box, vegie patch and cute flower gardens make the postcard perfect and a home in every sense of the word. The land itself is a mix of cleared open grassland and natural bush and the block has subdivision potential into two lots subject to Cessnock Council Approval.
