Perched on a gentle slope, gaze out over semi-rural countryside unfolding as far as the eye can see. Enjoying such a wide open setting, its hard to believe that the centre of Maitland is only five minutes away.

The elevated hardwood deck next to the lower in-ground pool is the perfect place to relax and contemplate the panoramic view. This attractive combination is especially hard to resist as the temperature starts the climb into summer.

The wraparound verandah roof line partially covers some of the 8m x 8m deck, enclosed on the western side for protection. Watch the sun set over the distinctive shape of the Brokeback mountain range, a reminder that Hunter Valley Wine Country is just down the road.

The deck and pool arrangement is ideally positioned on the northern side of home, extending from the internal open plan kitchen and casual meals area to increase the overall size of the entertaining and shared living spaces.

Banks of glass windows dominate this side of the home, framing wide rolling countryside scenes with twinkling blue water to the fore. Natural daylight pours inside during winter and is blocked by the verandah in summer. A combustion wood fire efficiently heats the entire open plan space in winter. Come summer, a split system air conditioner creates a cool retreat.

Alternatively, use the propertys slight elevation and position to capture the north-easterlies and afternoon southerly breezes.

Glazed french doors to the adjacent family room maintain an openness as well as preserving the scale and abundant light. Consisting of a huge bay window, the space is awash with bright natural daylight.

The many versatile spaces within this home easily accommodate a contemporary fluid family lifestyle. Currently set up as a generously proportioned fifth bedroom, this flexible area could easily be transformed.

The adjoining Activities Room / Music Room is equally flexible and with loads of storage, large north and east facing windows, direct external access via the deck, these spaces offer a variety of future uses.

The separate studio and office add even more scope. For crafty creators, this light, bright open space makes for an ideal workspace, plus there is loads more built-in storage across one end to keep supplies. Alternatively, as premises for a home operated business, salon or suite, there is vast amounts of potential here just waiting to be tapped into.

This is a drought proof working property, it has eight gated paddocks, four dams, several tank fed troughs and 100,000 litres in total of rain water storage. Next to the hay shed, a huge machinery shed can store the boat, float, caravan, and farm equipment. Dog proof wire mesh fencing protects the property, keeping the pests out and pets in. All the components to operate a basic farm are already here and waiting for the right buyer with a vision.

Back inside the home, the hard work has already been taken care of. The bathroom has been completely refurbished adopting a crisp, clean style that is highlighted by a cleverly placed vertical garden.

Further upgrades in the laundry and mud room add both functionality and visual appeal.

Embracing nature is at the core of this property and is best translated in the preserved natural bush rock feature perfectly framed by the master bedrooms main window. A solar powered pump turns this into a beautiful water feature over rock pools down to a fish pond at the base. The sound of water moving over this rock face drifts inside creating a magical ambience complemented by local owls and resident frogs. Nature lovers will fall head over heels for this delightful experience.
