Sit back, relax and breathe in the fresh air at this appealing rural lifestyle property on the outskirts of Clarence Town.

With a manageable 3.7 acres surrounded by picturesque countryside, this quality three-bedroom home offers the ultimate tree-change experience less than 45 minutes from Newcastle.

Designed for comfortable family living, this solidly-built brick veneer and Colorbond roof home features large living areas, plenty of outdoor entertaining space and a versatile layout that could easily convert into additional bedroom accommodation.

A covered verandah that wraps right around the house to the back of the double garage helps to create a classic country facade that fits in perfectly with the wide open spaces surrounding it.

Entry is via a solid timber paneled door with elegant leadlight inserts, which opens onto a small tiled foyer connecting the large formal dining and living rooms at the front of the house.

Carpeted with a plush grey flooring and featuring vintage-style feature pendant lights, the rooms have a homely atmosphere that adds a sense of coziness to the spacious area.

A large bay window covering one side of the dining room floods the space with natural light while also encouraging you to look outwards to the stunning rural landscape.

The dining room connects through to a large, traditionally-styled kitchen featuring timber cabinetry and soft grey laminate benchtops.

A return benchtop and breakfast bar provide ample preparation space and an area for casual dining, while the elongated picture window over the stainless steel sink offers stunning views and a sense of connection to the outside spaces.

Timber finishes have been used extensively throughout the house to complement its countryside location, while also adding a sense of warmth to the interior.

Timber-look vinyl flooring in the hallway draws the eye from the front living rooms down the centre of the home to the main bedroom at the rear, while rich, coffee-coloured timber doors, architraves and skirting boards continue the classic country theming throughout the house.

The gorgeous timber benchtop of the ensuite vanity complements the textured patterns of the above-counter stone basin, while a chrome-plated mixer adds a touch of contemporary styling to the space.

White plantation shutters add another contemporary element to the ensuite, main bathroom and sleeping quarters, with the bedrooms also featuring brushed aluminium combination ceiling fans and lights.

All three bedrooms are generously proportioned, with the massive master suite roomy enough to easily create a parents retreat or study area. A built-in window seat in the wide bay window provides an additional area to sit and relax while taking in the peaceful views.

Families looking for added sleeping accommodation could also convert the nearby family room into a fourth bedroom, or leave it as a third living space.

The house has been designed to provide ample outdoor living areas as well, with a covered alfresco area accessible via a sliding door in the family room and an external door near the kitchen.

On the opposite side of the house is an expansive 7.4m x 8.6m outdoor entertaining area, which has been fully enclosed with vertical sliding windows and screens plus external sliding doors.

This provides views of and access to a small fenced yard attached to the house, which would be ideal as a childrens playground.

There is also a separate, secure dog yard, while further afield a chicken coop, fenced horse paddocks and vegetable gardens allow you to make the most of country life.

Externally, the property has plenty of appealing features, with an 18m x 16m Colorbond shed featuring a toilet, shower and mezzanine storage, with enough space to accommodate 12 cars, or the caravan, boat and float.

The oversized double garage attached to the main house has plenty of room for a workshop or storage space.

Located a few minutes drive from the Williams River, where a new jetty and boat ramp provide easy access for those keen to enjoy fishing or water sports, the property is just 25 minutes from Maitland and just over two hours from Sydney, making it close enough to keep in touch with city conveniences while enjoying the country lifestyle.
