Unique country retreat that offers a natural resort lifestyle, this close to town
A beautiful home, full of character and charm, is passive solar designed and built.
Handmade bricks and Canadian Cedar, cathedral ceilings, leadlight windows, African slate floors. This home has been a joy to live in, and will be sad to leave.
But its here ready for you to write your chapter in.
The property is on 5.674 acres, amongst other rural acreages, 10 minutes to shops and restaurants, 25 minutes to Newcastle, 20 minutes to Maitland, 25 minutes to Newcastle airport, which is becoming international. School buses pick up and drop off the children at the gate.
It has five bedrooms, two bathrooms one recently renovated, a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room and an office. The main bedroom has a walk in robe, and an en suite with spa bath.
All rooms have new ceiling fans and there are three split air conditioners.
A spacious outside screened room with kitchen facilities and a wood fired oven which is ideal for the family and when relatives get together.
The pool has recently been re furbished, i.e. (refibreglassed) which also has a child friendly step around it.
The property also has a full size tennis court, a self-contained granny flat with a loft, and a new 10.5x10.5m American barn shed workshop.
An onsite caravan and annex (air-conditioned) which is ideal for the teenagers or visitors to stay in.
There is a three car carport attached to the house, and lock up garaging for up seven cars.
A fully lined cabin with veranda, town water and power overlooks the jetty and natural dam.
There are sheds ideal for mowers, tools etc.
There is a large area for chooks with an orchard, lime tree, mulberry, oranges, mandarin, apple trees etc. gardens and chook house.
The land is mainly treed and is natural bush with a few extra varieties planted years ago by the previous owner, with grass around the house and buildings which is easily maintained with the ride on mower.
This property has a certain kind of magic which I fell in love with eight years ago, but now life is changing, the children are growing up and its time to move on.
NBN is installed.
