CLASSIC COUNTRY LIFESTYLE ON OFFER
Looking every bit the stately farmhouse, with traditional bullnose verandahs wrapping around three sides, this well maintained home offers a classic slice of country life surrounded by tranquil rural landscapes. Located in the quiet village of Nelsons Plains alongside other good-sized acreages, this appealing rural lifestyle property is suited to a versatile range of uses. Consisting of 18.7 acres (approx. 7.6 hectares) including the house paddock, the property also features three fenced paddocks that provide plenty of space for hobby farmers to run a few head of livestock or horse owners to set up their own stables. Tall stands of trees provide shade for the livestock and firewood for the house, while also providing a large natural habitat for abundant birdlife and native animals that also call this property home. A stock dam will ensure the animals are well watered throughout the year, while two large concrete rainwater storage tanks provide water resources for the house. A bird aviary and chicken coop add to the existing agricultural infrastructure, while established garden beds offer the chance to grow your own vegetables for a self-sufficient lifestyle. There will be plenty of room to prepare and cook your bountiful harvest in the traditional country kitchen, which sits at the heart of the spacious brick and Colorbond roof homestead. With gleaming timber cabinetry and an expansive acrylic-coated benchtop, the kitchen is a large functional space, with a walk-in pantry and overhead cupboards providing plenty of storage. Richly textured slate flooring adds to the classic country look, while an exposed brick feature wall in the adjoining dining room is in keeping with the overall ambience. A traditional country homestead wouldn’t be complete without a wood burning fireplace, which creates a warm and welcoming focal point in the adjacent lounge room. Soaring cathedral ceilings and exposed timber beams add to the impressive nature of this space, while large picture windows and a glass sliding door provide panoramic views of the picturesque natural landscape that surrounds the house. A second even more magnificent family room is easily accessible through a pair of timber and glass French doors, which provide a seamless connection between the two spaces that is ideal when entertaining large numbers of guests. Timber-look vinyl parquetry flooring and an exposed brick feature wall inject texture and warmth into the cavernous space, which is flooded with natural light thanks to its cathedral ceiling and large picture windows, including a grand bay window at one end. The home’s fifth bedroom features a matching bay window, giving that end of the house a lovely symmetrical appearance when viewed from outside. It would be ideally suited for use as a home office if the additional sleeping accommodation was not required. The remaining four bedrooms are located at the opposite end of the house along a central hallway, ideally separated from the living areas. All five bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes, with the large master suite offering a his and hers walk-through wardrobe that provides access to the ensuite. The well-designed family bathroom is also located off this central hallway, alongside the separate toilet, compact laundry and two linen cupboards for ample storage. Additional storage options are located externally in the oversized double garage. Measuring 8.7m x 7.6m, the brick and Colorbond roof garage has plenty of room to house two cars while still leaving space to create a workshop and store all those outdoor tools and toys. Perfectly positioned to embrace a tranquil life amongst the rural landscape, this property is perfect for anyone looking to escape to a country retreat while still staying in touch with large urban centres. Raymond Terrace is just eight minutes to the south over the Williams River, providing an ample selection of supermarkets, retail and commercial businesses, recreation facilities, schools and medical services. The larger regional centres of Newcastle and Maitland are accessible in under half an hour, Newcastle Airport is only 20 minutes while easy access to the Pacific Highway via Raymond Terrace is perfect for those heading north or to Nelson Bay.
