20 Premium Acres with Equestrian Assets
Located in the heart of wine country, this 20 acre property offers a well-rounded lifestyle surrounded by some of the Hunter’s finest destinations.
The solid brick home has been tastefully refurbished after being occupied for 29 years by the vendor. Presenting an open plan, contemporary way of living, this is a wonderful environment to bring up a family.
Light filled, large living spaces are well connected and there is emphasis on in-door out-door entertaining with the addition of a sizable covered alfresco area across the north facing rear of the home.
Enjoy private, casual barbecues while overlooking the in-ground pool and spa that have been thoughtfully covered by a large sail for shade in summer.
Alternatively, a formal lounge and adjacent dining room provide spaces for more formal occasions. A cast-iron combustion wood heater maintains a warm and cosy atmosphere through the winter months or switch over to ducted air conditioning in both winter and summer.
The central kitchen is practical and has plenty of bench space overlooking a meals area opposite. A large walk-in pantry is neatly tucked in providing an abundance of storage space.
All the bedrooms have built-in cupboards and ceiling fans, plus the queen sized master bedroom has direct access to the modern bathroom for convenience.
There is plenty of parking arrangements around the home including a single garage, a carport and triple bay machinery shed. Two open parking bays plus another secure bay are large enough for over size vehicles such as a horse-float or caravan.
The flat and fertile property has many quality improvements that will particularly appeal to the equine community.
The secure property is enclosed by solid timber post and steel rail fencing and is partially bordered by the ‘Black Creek”. There are two paddocks both with permanent dams and the property is within the ‘Private Irrigation District’ (PID), that can be accessed upon request. An underground irrigation system is in-place, linking to the paddocks.
The eastern paddocks are divided with horse friendly ‘Super sleeve’ fencing into 3 x 1 acre paddocks each with a loose horse box. There is an additional foaling sized stable next to the shed shaded by mature native trees and within direct eye-shot of the home.
The fencing design has been well planned with lanes between the paddocks and consideration for future development on site. A separate point of access is fenced in along the eastern boundary connecting to the rear 5 acre paddock.
Potential uses for this site (depending on council consent) range from dual occupancies, cellar door premises, pubs, restaurants, cafes and more (see Cessnock LEP 2011).
The lifestyle scope for this property is vastly increased when the close proximity to surrounding attractions is considered. Enjoy attending the numerous concerts in the vines, visiting some of the surrounding world class restaurants, golf courses and wineries this region is celebrated for. The property is also within a comfortable walking distance to Saint Philips Christian College providing tuition from kinder to year 12.
Host your friends and family here, in one of Australia’s most visited places or keep it all to yourself and enjoy living in one of the most scenic and romantic regions around.
