TRANQUIL RETREAT ON FIVE ACRES
Embrace the glorious countryside location and live a life free from the hustle and bustle of suburbia with a lovely family home nestled on five picturesque acres (just over two hectares).
Located in the quiet rural village of Duns Creek, around 10 minutes from the cafes and boutiques of Morpeth, this stunning property is ideal for large families looking to reap the benefits of a country lifestyle.
The tri-level double brick cavity and Colorbond roof home was built around 30 years ago with the two storey extension only 10 years old has been beautifully updated in areas such as the gorgeous central kitchen with a style that successfully melds both contemporary finishes and rustic charm.
Natural materials have been used throughout the home to give the interior a traditional country feel, with slate flooring, timber beams and exposed brickwork adding warmth and texture to the rooms, while soaring raked ceilings and large picture windows enhance the sense of light and space.
The house is built over two levels, with three bedrooms including the master suite on the upper floor and an additional two bedrooms on the lower level. The bedrooms are all well-sized, with built-in wardrobes in the minor bedrooms and a large walk-in wardrobe in the master.
A spacious ensuite offers touches of luxury in the main bedroom, with Italian double glass vanities and floor/wall tiles, an oversized frameless mirror and a double glass enclosed shower with striking star-shaped rain showerhead.
A private balcony off the master suite offers a secluded parents’ retreat that is perfect for an early morning coffee listening to the sounds of the birdlife.
A lovely family bathroom and separate toilet are located on the lower level close to the bedrooms, while the nearby laundry offers external access to the rear verandah.
A third bathroom, large walk-in storage space and home office can be closed off from the rest of the house at the end of the hallway, with access to the massive light-filled studio that is currently being run as a home fitness business but offers a range of potential uses.
The home’s living areas are all grouped together at one end of the lower level, with an elongated L-shaped lounge room providing a spacious, comfortable area for the family to gather together, with room to create multiple sitting areas.
The renovated kitchen is the light and bright heart of the home, with clean lines and luxurious inclusions creating a sleek, contemporary space. Crisp white Caesarstone benchtops and soft-closing cabinetry contrast nicely against the warmth of the timber-panelled ceiling, while a sleek glass splashback and the Oliveri Santorini gooseneck tap and undermounted sink add a touch of style and elegance.
A servery and breakfast bar create a nice connection between the kitchen and the enclosed area, which can be accessed via the rear verandah or through a sliding door in the lounge room.
With light coloured walls, a polished concrete floor, large sliding doors and multiple windows offering picturesque views, the outdoor room is a bright and inviting space that extends the home’s indoor outdoor living opportunities.
Front and rear covered verandahs offer additional places to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting, while a host of external features make the property ideal for those who want to set up a hobby farm or house their horses at home.
The property’s five tree-studded acres are already set up for equestrian pursuits, with a 40m x 20m riding arena, as well as a stable, tie-up yards and a feed shed, while six paddocks, a large dam, and a chicken coop provide plenty of opportunities for those who want to pursue other agricultural opportunities.
The property includes an attached double carport to the house, with extra height to accommodate a horse float or caravan. There is also a separate double garage with its own workshop and toilet, with an additional 3.5m x 9m carport to one side.
Conveniently located around five minutes from the scenic riverside village of Paterson and 10 minutes from the heritage tourist town of Morpeth, the property has easy access to major urban centres, with the amenities, shops and restaurants of both Maitland and Stockland Green Hills around 20 minutes away.
