TRANQUIL RURAL RETREAT
Surrounded by nature but less than 10 minutes from a bustling regional centre, this outstanding rural property offers something for everyone.
Located in the tranquil rural suburb of Nelsons Plains, around 6km north west of Raymond Terrace in the Port Stephens Council area, the property features 14 acres of gently undulating land.
Fully fenced around the perimeter and cleared to shade trees, the property is ideal for anyone looking for a manageable sized acreage that could be set up as a hobby farm or used to keep horses.
Reassuringly in these times of drought, two large dams and a fresh water bore with pump and irrigation lines provide unlimited water supply to the property, supplemented by over 100,000 litres of rainwater storage tanks.
The property presents a range of potential uses, with existing infrastructure including a 30m x 12m powered machinery shed suitable for storing trucks and heavy machinery, and a separate 12m x 7m powered shed with a high roller door providing options for home-based businesses (STCA) and storage space.
Families seeking plenty of room for their kids to explore will also love the wide-open spaces and cleared, grazing land, perfect for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as horse riding, before cooling off in the glistening above-ground saltwater swimming pool.
Set back from the front boundary, the home offers complete privacy from its nearest neighbours and Ralstons Road, with nothing but the sound of local birdlife to disrupt the tranquility.
A pleasant brick and tile construction with an attached triple garage giving it a traditional homestead feel, the home is ideal for large families, with five bedrooms, multiple living areas and plenty of storage space.
An expansive living room and master bedroom are located at the front of the home, with their large bay windows creating light and bright spaces that benefit from views over the large, picturesque dam.
A built-in bar in the lounge room creates the ideal place to relax or entertain guests, while a second oversized activity room located off two of the bedrooms towards the rear of the home provides a separate space for the younger members of the family to chill out.
A centrally located open plan dining room and kitchen offer direct access to the extensive covered outdoor space, along with views over the adjoining pool area, while a wood-burning fireplace adds to the warm and cosy ambience of this space.
The practical kitchen feels fresh and bright, with modern white cabinetry and a large u-shaped laminate benchtop providing plenty of storage and preparation space. A built-in double recess allows ample room for a fridge designed to feed the largest of families, while stainless-steel appliances add to the kitchen’s contemporary feel.
Ample storage space is also available in four of the home’s five bedrooms, which include built-in wardrobes, while linen cupboards in proximity to the family bathroom and ensuite add to the home’s practical design.
Multiple split-system air conditioning units help create a comfortable temperature all year round, while a 20-panel 5kw solar power system on the home makes it economical to run.
Ideally positioned to embrace a slice of country life, the property is perfect for those who don’t want to forego the conveniences of city life, with the shopping centres and essential services of Raymond Terrace less than 10 minutes away.
The larger urban centres of Newcastle and Maitland are accessible in under half an hour, while easy access to the Pacific Highway via Raymond Terrace is perfect for those heading north or to Nelson Bay.
