GRAND HOME ON FIVE ACRES
One look is all it will take to fall in love with the grand homestead and tranquil country lifestyle offered by this magnificent Brandy Hill property.
Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac and set back from the road behind impressive sandstone and timber entry gates and a thick stand of trees, the home is a private oasis set on five glorious acres.
Constructed with a pleasant honey-coloured brick and light Colorbond roof, the home sits harmoniously in the surrounding landscape, with wide wraparound verandahs that provide endless opportunities to sit back and soak up the serenity of the natural setting.
The home has been meticulously finished down to the smallest detail, from the ornate period-style cornices, wall niches and dado rails, to the extensive use of timber throughout to create that traditional country style.
Nine foot ceilings and a lovely neutral colour scheme enhance the bright and airy feeling of the home, while timber French doors and large bay windows allow plenty of natural light in while also drawing the eye outwards to the view.
The large main residence offers plenty of space for the whole family and has been divided into three distinct zones.
The sumptuous master suite is situated to the right of the foyer, providing a private and peaceful parents’ retreat away from the main living and sleeping areas.
Entry is via timber French doors into a large, versatile room, which could be used to create a quiet sitting area or home office. The space flows through into the king-sized bedroom, which is spacious enough to accommodate the largest bedroom setting with room to spare for an additional sitting area. A dual aspect ensures the room is light and bright with stunning views of the surrounding landscape, while a sliding glass door in the sitting room provides direct access to the rear verandah.
Timber and glass doors conceal a walk-in dressing room and wardrobe, while the vast period-inspired ensuite is a combination of luxury and class, with a large corner shower, deep oval spa bath and twin timber vanities.
The central portion of the house has been designed for family living, with a series of separate zones that give everyone their own private space, as well as a larger open plan area next to the kitchen where the whole family can gather together in comfort.
Richly-toned terracotta floor tiles help to create a natural flow between the living spaces, while also reflecting the warm cream accents of the country-profile cabinetry in the kitchen.
The kitchen is luxuriously large, with an oversized benchtop set underneath the architecturally stunning five-panel bay window feature, while a central island bench provides additional space for cooking with a four-burner gas cooktop.
A breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances and elegant pendant lights add to the appeal of the kitchen, making it a hub for entertaining.
A country home wouldn’t be complete without a slow combustion wood fire heater to provide a cosy warmth in the adjoining family room, while several reverse cycle air conditioning units throughout the home kept it comfortable all year round.
Timber and glass French sliding doors separate these living areas from the home’s remaining three bedrooms, which are grouped around a central hallway with access to the family bathroom, laundry and walk-in storage room.
Like the rest of the home, the bedrooms are all generously-proportioned, with large built-in wardrobes and space for a queen bed setting and study nook.
All three bedrooms and the laundry have sliding door access to either the front or rear verandahs, with stunning views over the property.
A fifth bedroom is located in a stand-alone granny flat, connected to the main home by a breezeway at the rear.
The self-sufficient space includes a full bathroom with toilet, vanity and shower, with a good-sized kitchenette, featuring laminate benchtops and timber cabinetry, a stainless steel sink and an oven, located in the attached double garage.
Additional car accommodation is provided in a five-bay shed set further back on the property, accessible via its own tar-sealed drive and turning circle.
The shed also has space for additional storage or a workshop, as well as a full bathroom. A covered verandah runs across the front of the shed, while a 300sqm machinery bay with Geogrid reinforced gravel floor located to one side of the building is the ideal space for storing your caravan, boat, trailer or horse float.
With its stunning bush outlook and peaceful ambience, the property is ideally suited for those who love spending time outdoors, with countless opportunities for bird watching, gardening or just relaxing amongst the natural landscape.
The home features multiple alfresco areas paved with stunning travertine tiles, surrounded by sandstone retained formal gardens, a dedicated area for a future swimming pool, a tranquil water feature, built-in seating and a fire pit.
There’s also plenty to keep the youngest members of the family entertained, with acres of bushland to explore, a separate shady horse paddock, and a playground wonderland featuring a flying fox, in-ground trampoline, basketball hoop, balance poles and sandpit.
An ideal property for those looking to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country without straying too far from city conveniences, Brandy Hill is a picturesque, semi-rural community centrally positioned between Newcastle and Maitland, with the amenities and facilities of the regional centre of Raymond Terrace just 10 minutes away.
Raymond Terrace also provides easy access to the Pacific Highway for those heading north or to Nelson Bay, while the Newcastle Airport at nearby Williamtown has direct flights to a range of domestic destinations.
