Located in the beating-heart of the Hunter Valley Wine Country with spectacular views of the Brokenback Range, this stunning home is significant in size and is set on 67 rolling acres with additional guest accommodation.
Arriving at the main homestead you are greeted by large iron gates and a European-style motor court. A walled entry complete with large antique coach-lamps leads to the front-door which is flanked by glass panes allowing you to see through to the plunge pool and central loggia/courtyard. Constructed in two distinct wings, the home is connected by a lofty entrance hall that leads to an open living space on each side. On the lower-side, the open living space houses a modern kitchen and large combined living space which opens on one side to a large entertaining deck and on the other to the plunge-pool and Italian style courtyard. Natural light is plentiful, views are breathtaking from every angle and the open wood-burning fireplace gives it a warm homely feel all year round. In the same pavilion is an exceptionally large main bedroom with oversized ensuite and dressing room and robes, downstairs billiard room, additional guest-room and bathroom as well as a wine-cellar and triple under-ground garage.
The top-side also offers an open but clearly more formal living space which also opens on to an established olive-trees and French Provincial alfresco dining and BBQ area. A study or fifth bedroom as well as two guest suites with their own ensuites and opulent storage complete the internal space. In addition to the huge garage in the lower-wing, the top-wing offers more underground garaging and machinery storage. The family and master bedroom are fully air-conditioned and beautifully presented.
In addition to the main homestead is a two bedroom guest cottage with additional annexe offering another three rooms and a shared bathroom. The property is gently undulating, mostly cleared and abundantly fertile.
The property is located within 2 hours of Sydney, 1 hour of Newcastle and is literally surrounded by private country estates, commercial vineyards and restaurants and is within ear-shot of all three major concert venues.
