LUXURY RURAL LIFESTYLE WITH RIVER FRONTAGEWith a commanding presence overlooking the Hunter River, “Brisbane Fields” offers a rural lifestyle of grand proportions.
Featuring an architecturally designed four bedroom home set on a fertile 38-acre allotment, this Berry Park property is ideal for buyers looking for a life on the land without foregoing the luxuries of modern living.
Owner built in 2011, the two-storey sandstock brick home was constructed to make the most of its picturesque surrounds and north-east facing position overlooking the Hunter River.
Rising up from the river flats to provide elevated views of the surrounding countryside, the house is an impressive sight, with twin double garages flanking the tiled porch and entry door creating a pleasing and aesthetically balanced frontage.
The property features space for 12 cars in total, including the large Colorbond machinery shed located diagonally opposite the house on the river frontage section of the allotment.
Both of the attached garages are large enough to cater for four cars each, with a dedicated space for a gym in the left garage and a workshop in the right.
Double Meranti timber entry doors open up into a vast foyer area, which features a striking chequerboard tiled floor and a solid 1500mm wide timber staircase leading up to the first floor.
The rich hues of the Meranti timber flow throughout the house, from the six inch skirting boards and decorative door frames to the four-panel solid internal doors.
The foyer provides access to both garages as well as a large multi-function room, which could be used as a downstairs rumpus / games room or even a home office. This area flows through to the tiled mud room and out into the downstairs alfresco area.
The mud room acts as an interconnecting space between both garages as well as the laundry, which has plenty of storage space with built-in cabinetry running the length of both walls.
A small adjoining bathroom completes the downstairs accommodation, with a vanity, shower and toilet enabling you to wash away all traces of a day’s labour on the farm or in the workshop before ascending to the main living areas of the house.
The first floor is separated into distinct living and sleeping zones, which are separated by an expansive open plan kitchen, casual sitting room and dining area.
With a large L-shaped island bench and breakfast bar, and access to both the front and rear verandahs, the kitchen is the
natural heart of the home, with plenty of space for family and friends to gather.
An extensive use of timber surfaces including the satin-finish laminate flooring and classic timber veneer “Farmers” kitchen cabinetry add a homely sense of warmth to the space, while the exquisite black and silver brocade wallpaper used for adjoining feature walls adds a touch of luxury to the country chic interior.
Bold splashes of black and silver have been used to effect throughout the kitchen, from the dark Caesarstone benchtops and black appliances to the stunning “Schock” matt black double basin sink and chrome “Bastow” gooseneck mixer.
This theme has been continued throughout both in the family bathroom and ensuite, which incorporate the same style of “Farmers” cabinetry, “Bastow” tapware and Caesarstone benchtops, as well as the black and white tiling used in the downstairs foyer and a heritage-look freestanding claw foot bath.
The sleeping quarters are located off a central hallway at the south-east end of the first floor, with two bedrooms and the bathroom offering views of the river through large picture windows and the remaining bedrooms, including the spacious master suite, taking in the surrounding farmland vista.
The generously-sized bedrooms all feature ceiling fans and four-door built-in wardrobes while the master has a walk-in wardrobe the size of a standard bedroom, with built-in hanging space and shelving.
The generous proportions continue in the ensuite, with an extra-wide shower recess, semi-frameless shower screens and twin showerheads completing the luxury feel of the master suite.
The living areas are located at the opposite end of the first floor, including a dedicated media room featuring the main Foxtel connection and surround sound speaker wiring.
A large carpeted formal dining and lounge room provides a comfortable space in which to relax or entertain, with an ornate black and crystal-look chandelier adding a touch of elegance to the area.
Both rooms are kept cosy throughout winter by the wood-burning fire located in the adjacent open plan kitchen / sitting room, with the home’s year-round heating and cooling complemented by the Actron Air seven zone ducted reverse cycle air conditioning.
Tinting on the west-facing windows also helps to keep out the heat of the summer sun, while café blinds on either end of the rear upstairs verandah shield the space from the westerly winds.
With room for an outdoor lounge and dining setting, and a gas connection point for the barbecue, this is the ideal space for alfresco dining or entertaining while taking in the spectacular sunsets over the farmlands.
When the sun goes down, retreat across the road to the property’s river frontage, where a fire pit and built-in seating create a peaceful spot to relax with family or friends.
Aside from providing a picturesque view, the Hunter River frontage also allows plenty of recreational opportunities for water sport enthusiasts, with the ability to launch a number of watercraft including a small boat from the jetty.
With an unregulated water access licence, the river is also a useful irrigation source for the property’s seven paddocks, although they all contain troughs that are connected to the town water supply as well.
Featuring post and wire fencing and a laneway system for easy stock movements, the paddocks can be used for a variety
of livestock including horses and cattle, although the property is also suitable for cropping.
A row of fruit trees along one side and the rear of the house paddock provide a generous harvest of oranges, Tahitian limes, lemons, mangoes, apples and mandarins each season, while flourishing lavender and rose bushes framing the front porch give off a delicate fragrance year round.
