With an expansive river frontage, 12 fertile acres and a hand-crafted country homestead large enough for the extended family, this unique Paterson property is sure to impress.

Located in picturesque countryside around 1.5km from the centre of this peaceful rural village and less than 20 minutes from Maitland, the property offers the chance to enjoy a traditional rural lifestyle close to all the amenities.

The lovely Paterson River runs along its rear boundary, offering 600m of direct river frontage that is ideal for those who enjoy spending their spare time fishing, boating or kayaking.

The river also provides a dependable source of water, with underground irrigation lines and all the required electrical infrastructure in place, while the house itself is connected to the town water supply.

The property is well suited to a range of agricultural pursuits, with three cleared and fenced paddocks for livestock or horses, while a rear shed with three-phase underground power provides plenty of storage for your farm machinery and equipment.

An oversized double brick garage detached from the house provides additional storage space for your family vehicles, while the upper storey features a self-contained studio complete with an open plan bedroom/living and kitchenette area, as well as a full bathroom with toilet, shower and vanity.

This studio, which was built in 1988, provides the property with a sixth potential bedroom, however it could also make a fantastic home office with wonderful views over the property.

The nearby Georgian-style homestead was built by the owner 14 years earlier and was designed with functionality and practicality in mind.

The sturdy double brick construction and high cathedral ceilings provide natural insulation and increased air flow, ensuring the home stays warm in winter and cool in summer without the need for air conditioning.

A rustic exposed brick double-fronted fireplace provides all the heating the home needs during the cooler months, while also giving the adjoining living and formal dining rooms stunning central focal points.

Handmade exposed Oregon timber trusses and western red cedar ceiling paneling in the living areas add to the home's traditional styling, while the country-style kitchen features richly-toned timber cabinetry, a Royal wood-burning oven and stove and substantial Oregon beams that are truly impressive.

The expansive eat-in kitchen has a warm and homely feel, with three large timber-framed bay windows that provide a picturesque outlook over the farmlands to the distant mountain ranges.

The home has a spacious, well-designed interior, with the central living spaces flanked at one end by the vast master suite, while two other bedrooms and the family bathroom are located at the other end of the house.

All three downstairs bedrooms feature timber-framed French doors, which provide plenty of natural light as well as direct access to the wraparound verandah.

The master suite is a true parents' retreat, with a good-sized ensuite that can be accessed via a versatile connecting room, which would make an indulgent dressing room, conveniently-located nursery for new parents or a private home office.

An additional two bedrooms are located on mezzanine levels built at either end of the house, leaving a magnificent double-height void over the downstairs living areas.

Both bedrooms have their own walk-in wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms, one of which includes a bath, and feature internal balconies overlooking either the dining room or living room, as well as access to the roof cavity storage areas.

The home features an abundance of storage, including two triple-door cupboards at either end of the living areas and an additional linen cupboard in the laundry.

Offering a fantastic home for buyers looking to embrace traditional rural pursuits without moving too far from urban conveniences, the property also includes a range of other lifestyle features that, with a little extra work, would provide hours of enjoyment for all the family, including a 12.5m x 5m inground swimming pool, a full-size tennis court with lighting and an adjoining alfresco area.
