Located in the picturesque Hunter Valley between Australia’s leading studs and Wine Country, this spectacularly integrated horse, cattle and wine estate sits at the foot of the Brokenback Range and among manicured park-like grounds.
Sprawling over some 60 hectares of productive river flats and multiple titles, the integrated horse stud, grazing property with boutique sized vineyard and golf course feature a massive homestead and weatherboard guest cottage with in-ground pool among many other outbuildings.
Completed in 2007, the ultra-modern home sits among manicured gardens overlooking a 20m infinity-edge lap pool and surrounding parkland. As you enter the home the massive open plan living space is flooded with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows and a large Jetmaster fireplace. A chic modern galley kitchen with walk-in-pantry and cool room and adjoining wine cellar opens to a lofty combined lounge and dining room all with magnificent views. The American Oak floorboards lead you through the library/reading room which also has its own fireplace to three large guest or family bedrooms with bespoke cabinetry (one has its own ensuite). At the other end of the house is a master suite with spectacular views, two walk-in robes, a massive open-plan ensuite and two separate offices. The home has reverse cycle ducted air conditioning to keep the property comfortable all year round and is complete with flood-lit tennis court.
The stud infrastructure is first-rate with an open air six box stable barn with breezeway, wash bay, feed room and double vet crush kept separately to the stallion box and run. A ‘racing office’ and 4km turf track among many post-and-rail day yards which are sown to rye, lucern and clover complete the picture but are also complimented by cattleyards, multiple machinery sheds, feed sheds and hay sheds. The vineyard comprises a total of 20 hectares of eight different varietals which are produced and marketed under the award winning Bilgavia Estate label.
The property also has plentiful water with four large earth dams and an irrigation allocation from the Hunter River via the Broke Fordwich PID.
