With all the space and infrastructure you need to run an equine facility or establish a farming operation, this Bishops Bridge property situated in the heart of the Hunter Valley is ideally set up and ready to use.

The property features 11.7 hectares (29 acres) of gently undulating countryside cleared to shade trees, divided into seven good-sized paddocks with a laneway system, while the house yard has been securely fenced with mesh to keep smaller family pets safe.

The property is currently being utilised as an equine facility and would be perfect for horse lovers looking for plenty of space and established infrastructure, however the elevated, flood-free land presents plenty of options to explore other agricultural pursuits.

The property features a spacious stable complex, which is currently divided into two oversized stables but could be easily converted into three standard sized stalls. The stables are rubber lined with a natural base base and gates on both sides for easy horse movement and ventilation.

A large tack room and feed storage area feature a concrete base, while a drive-through breezeway and a huge undercover awning adjacent to the wash bay and tie-up rails at the front, add to the versatility of the fully powered complex.

Additional equine infrastructure includes a 700m exercise track, purpose-built swimming hole for the horses, a rubber-lined timber round yard and the perfect area for a dressage arena, while four of the safely fenced paddocks include open stables, two of which have their own tank water supply.

The property has access to an ample water supply for household use, irrigation, livestock and horses, with eight water tanks and three stock dams in total. The property also backs on to a permanent creek.

Two of the larger water tanks are connected to the propertys charming homestead providing plenty of water for your household needs, with a smaller tank allocated to the pool.

The house combines country charm with modern updates and has been repainted throughout, with new plush carpet and a selection of recently laid timber laminate and vinyl flooring giving the home a fresh, updated feel.

A wide covered verandah running along the front of the home adds to its traditional country appeal, while the soft, sandy tone of the external rendered finish contrasts nicely against the dark colour of the Colorbond roof.

Inside, the home has been well laid out for family living, with three of the bedrooms grouped in a separate wing alongside the spacious and updated main family bathroom.

The master bedroom features its own ensuite, as well as walk-through and built-in wardrobes, while the other three bedrooms also feature built-in wardrobes for ample storage space.

The fourth bedroom is located away from the rest of the sleeping areas next to the second living room, and would make an ideal home office or guest accommodation.

Several living areas ensure this home has plenty of space for large families, with a lounge room, a second living room and an open plan dining room adjacent to the country kitchen, which features gleaming Tasmanian oak cabinetry and a granite-look laminate benchtop with convenient breakfast bar return.

A slow combustion wood fire in the lounge room gives the home a cosy heart with plenty of room for the family to relax together, while split system air conditioning units and ceiling fans throughout the home ensure the perfect temperature all year round.

Additional living and entertaining space has been added at the rear with a fully enclosed entertainment room running along almost the entire length of the home. A versatile area that can be used all-year-round, it features a row of large picture windows that flood this room with natural light while providing panoramic views over the house yard, inground saltwater swimming pool area and surrounding paddocks.

Centrally located in the tranquil suburb of Bishops Bridge, this property is only 10 minutes from the amenities of Maitlands bustling city centre, while the fine dining restaurants and world-renowned vineyards of the Lovedale and Pokolbin wine regions are also within a 10-20 minute drive.

A short 4 minute drive to the Hunter Expressway provides this property with convenient regional connectivity to the bars and beaches of Newcastle, and the employment centres of the Upper Hunters mining region.
