BENTWOOD ESTATE at Pokolbin is actually a pretty good place to buy a block. If you think of holiday destinations having a holiday home in Hunter Valley Wine Country is certainly appealing. With a tremendous array of restaurants, wineries, golf courses and tourist attractions (concerts, Hunter Valley Zoo, hot air ballooning, horse riding, cycling and Hunter Valley Gardens there is plenty to see and do. If peace and quiet is preferred ... there is loads of that too.

It is a pretty locale with a majestic backdrop of the rugged Brokenback Range and native bushland blending with rows and rows of grapevines across the countryside.

Picture perfect moments are a constant. From sunrise to sunset. Kangaroos, wombats and birds are everywhere.

Bentwood Estate has a great selection of blocks around the 1 to 2 acres (4000 to 7300 sqm) or so in size meaning you ahve plenty of space. The estate is serviced by tar sealed roads and a security gate. Tennis courts and swimming pool are adjacent to the community centre and parkland area. There is an on site manager too.

The estate is designed for holiday or short term accommodation (not permanent residency per se). Some owners have built B & B accommodation which do generate good returns and are a popular rental in the vineyard region. Much more appealing than

The best part about Bentwood Estate is the relatively cheap buy in cost. Compared to buying in other tourist resorts like The Vintage or Cypress Lakes, the purchase price for most land is much more affordable and the ongoing strata or community estate costs are significiantly cheaper.

You could buy an onsite van in a caravan park for much the same sort of money but if having a proper house ... plenty of space around you ... and an asset that will deliver quality returns (when you are not using it) then Bentwood Estate is an extremely palatable choice.

If you can swing it and live / work at Bentwood Estate for half the week and home for the other half, you will have it made.

Bentwood Estate is in Pokolbin about 20 minutes out of Cessnock along Broke Road (2 kilometres from Hermitage Rd).

Keith Tulloch Wines, De iuliis Wines, James Estate, Leaogate Estate, Hunter Distillery, Thomas Allen Wines are all nearby as are Ironbark Hill Brewhouse and Piggs Peake winery.

If quality dining is preferred then it's worth making a permanent reservation at EXP or Botanica or Muse or Baume or Blaxlands or Esca or Il Cacciatore ..... anywhere and everywhere is simply scrumptious. You wil be very much spoilt for choice.

Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Singleton are nearby centres, all within an hour's drive. From Sydney your travels should take little more than 2-2.5 hours.

Cons: There are transmission lines running alongside the estate and a sizeable portion of defence department owned land adjacent to the Estate.

Sternbeck's Real Estate in Cessnock have been selling a properties at Bentwood Estate and would be worth a call for more information on what is currently available.

Hope that helps.
