Combining a striking Queenslander style of architecture with large park-like grounds reminiscent of an English county garden, Spring Ridge offers a luxurious country lifestyle in a picture perfect setting.

Rustic post and rail fencing and solar-powered wrought iron front gates provide access to the undulating 10 acre property, which is located on a private access road in the close-knit community of Hillsborough.

The entry is highlighted by a formal hedged garden and large established trees, providing a lush green contrast to the white weathertex home, which cuts a charming figure perched neatly on the hillside with its wide timber verandahs, high-pitched Colorbond roof and masses of rose bushes scattered around the grounds.

The rose motif is continued on the stained glass panel contained within the ornately detailed front door, which opens into the entry hall.

Off to the right is the homes guest wing, featuring a large bedroom with built-in wardrobes, a three-way bathroom with spa bath and a large, practical laundry area, which contains a separate access door to the front verandah.

To the left of the entry hall is the main living and formal dining area of the home, a cathedral-like space with high raked ceilings, plush cream carpet, LED downlights and a striking wooden feature pendant light.

Cosy up in the cooler months in front of the Coonara slow combustion wood heater, or beat the heat during the summer with the Fujitsu split system air conditioner and twin ceiling fans.

An abundance of light floods into the vast room, with large glass windows providing views of the front garden while three glass sliding doors provide access to the verandah at the side and rear of the house.

Double glass and wooden sliding doors can be used to section off this room, or be opened wide to create a connection with the adjoining country-style kitchen.

An ideal place to cook and entertain, the kitchen combines contemporary finishes such as 30mm stone benchtops and white timber-look soft close cabinetry, with rustic touches of detail including decorative wrought iron handles and Jarrah timber floorboards.

A Belling 1100mm dual oven Country Range cooker with seven burner gas cooktop will cater for all your cooking needs, while a large walk-in pantry, island bench and window seat with undermount drawers provide ample storage space.

While the original house was built in 1999, the current owners completed a seamless two-storey extension in 2011 that created an additional living and casual dining area off the kitchen and a new luxury master suite on the first floor of the home.

Large windows and a sliding glass door to a private balcony allow plenty of light into this area while also making the most of the stunning views of the landscaped gardens and inground pool below.

The first floor of the home contains the three remaining bedrooms, family bathroom and the more recently added master suite.

The upstairs bedrooms all contain built-in wardrobes with double doors, split-system air conditioners and plush cream carpet, while the family bathroom, which can be accessed via the hallway and bedroom four includes a toilet, shower and double vanity.

A hallway connects the three bedrooms, with a built-in desk large enough to accommodate two people representing a clever use of space just outside the entrance to the master suite.

The use of custom-built furniture to make the most of every area continues in the main bedroom, with a bank of drawers built along the left wall, opposite a large mirrored built-in wardrobe.

This opens up into an expansive bedroom area, made to seem even larger by the inclusion of a raked ceiling and the large glass sliding door, which leads onto a small, private balcony.

Plantation shutter doors separate the bedroom from the sumptuous ensuite, which features floor to ceiling marble tiles, a deep freestanding bath and dual vanity with stone benchtops, as well as a toilet and shower.

Quality fixtures and fittings including plantation shutters have been used throughout the home to enhance its sense of luxury, while glass has been extensively incorporated into its overall design to capitalise on the scenic location, with large windows and doors in every room and glass railings around the verandah.

Glass fence panels also surround the 9.8m Compass self-cleaning saltwater pool and adjoining cabana, while travertine paving and tropical gardens complete the resort-style look of the area.

Entertaining is easy at Spring Ridge, with the current owners extending the timber deck and roofline at the rear of the house to create an expansive alfresco area overlooking the pool.

For those looking for a more active lifestyle, the property is ideally set up for both equine enthusiasts and hobby farmers.

An arena, shedding and two horse yards are located a short distance from the rear of the house, while a number of fenced paddocks are suitable for various types of livestock.

The undulating property runs right down to the banks of the Hunter River, with the 100m water frontage allowing for the construction of a pump and automated irrigation system to make the most of a two megalitre stock and domestic user rights from the river.

The property is also serviced by three small dams, 60,000 litre rain water storage located under the house and 42,000 litre garden water storage.

Green thumbs will fall in love with the propertys extensive plantings, from the mature stands of mixed white gums and Duns white gums to the collection of fruit trees, which include lemon, lime, orange, apple, pear,
peach, avocado, pomegranate, macadamia nut and mulberry.

A fully fenced vegetable garden featuring three separate irrigated beds, a large chicken coop and 7.2Kw solar system will cater for those looking to become more self-sufficient, while a 12m x 9m shed and carport, which features a workshop, mezzanine storage area and large concrete apron, will provide plenty of space to store all your tools and outdoor toys.

There are also an additional two car parking spaces available underneath the house.
