Sold on 23rd October 2020

Modern country retreat

With 100 acres to enjoy, a tri-level residence that makes the most of the views and a bonus granny flat for added accommodation, this Duns Creek property offers endless opportunities.

Surrounded by pristine natural bushland in the quiet rural community of Duns Creek, the property enjoys a private, secluded ambience, with the conveniences of a major regional centre just 20 minutes away.

Perfect for horse owners, agriculturalists and nature lovers, the expansive rural acreage has a mix of terrain, with around 40 per cent of the property cleared to pasture and shade trees while the rest retains its natural bush landscape.

The property features a range of agricultural improvements, with a mix of shedding, stabling and other structures.

A 20m x 60m dressage arena and large stable complex with five undercover steel yards that all open onto day yards provide plenty of options for equine activities, while a variety of paddocks with a combination of solid and electric fencing, and three paddocks suitably fenced for sheep, open up the opportunities for various farming operations.

A large Colorbond shed provides storage space for machinery, a horse float and boat, while a separate hay shed, timber cattle yards and six stock dams with irrigation lines complete the agricultural improvements.

An additional brick structure includes space for a carport, workshop and storage, while four rainwater tanks and a solar system that feeds back into the grid provide a reliable source of water and power.

Chicken coops and a vegetable garden are ideal for those looking to build a self-sufficient lifestyle, while established house gardens and mature feature trees provide pleasant landscaped surrounds for the house.

The split-level brick home was built in 1980 and has been well maintained. Designed over three levels, it makes the most of its elevation to provide private balconies off most of the rooms.

The home features modern country styling, with traditional elements including exposed bricks and beams as well as plenty of timber accents, mixed with plenty of contemporary touches.

A country homestead wouldn't be complete without a cosy fireplace and this property certainly doesn't disappoint with a slow combustion wood-fired heater in the dining room, while a huge open fireplace with exposed brick surround and timber mantle provides a stunning rustic centerpiece in the lounge room.

Custom timber shelving next to the fireplace, dado rails and a high raked ceiling with exposed beams painted white add to the features of the lounge room, which feels light and bright thanks to an abundance of large windows and a glass sliding door leading out to the rear covered deck.

While plush carpet adds to the cosiness of the lounge space and all four bedrooms, beautiful slate flooring provides a more rustic touch in the dining room, kitchen and entry.

The kitchen is a chef's delight, with ample underbench and overhead timber cabinetry, return laminate benchtops and breakfast seating, as well as quality Smeg stainless steel appliances including a wall oven, rangehood and dishwasher.

Large families will love the addition of an expansive rumpus room on the lower level of this home, with the versatile space featuring a massive central room, an adjoining bar area and kitchenette, as well as its own slow combustion wood-fired heater, while sliding glass doors connect it to the rear entertaining areas.

The home's four king-sized bedrooms are all located on the upper level, along with an updated family bathroom that includes a charming clawfoot bath, luxurious floor-to-ceiling tiling and a frameless glass shower recess.

The light and bright bedrooms include a feature wall of timber panelling, as well as huge built-in wardrobes, ceiling fans and glass sliding doors out to their own private verandahs.

The master suite has a vast walk-in wardrobe, with plenty of space to install a luxury ensuite, while there is also a separate study with a built-in desk for those working from home.

Buyers looking for added accommodation for extended families, friends or a potential income source (subject to council approval) will love the property's stunning granny flat, which was built by Hunter Valley Homes three years ago and has never been lived in.

Featuring a spacious bedroom, well-appointed bathroom, and light-filled living area, as well as a modern kitchen and open plan dining room, the modern self-contained granny flat has been beautifully styled and meticulously finished.

Conveniently located around five minutes from the scenic riverside village of Paterson and 10 minutes from the heritage tourist town of Morpeth, this picturesque rural property has easy access to major urban centres, with the amenities, shops and restaurants of both Maitland and Stockland Green Hills around 20 minutes away.
