Tree-Change Paradise Ripe For The Picking

Escape to the country and create the perfect tree-change lifestyle with this picturesque rural property on the edge of a popular Hunter vineyard region.

Located in the tightly-held suburb of Sawyers Gully and owned by the same family for the past 60 years, this 60-acre property represents a rare chance to secure land on the outskirts of the boutique Lovedale wine region, boasting glorious views across rolling farmland to the distant Brokenback Mountain Ranges and night time views of the Maitland city lights.

Originally run as a vineyard until 1935, the property features gently undulating countryside predominantly cleared to shade trees, with the potential to be used for a wide variety of agricultural purposes.

Make the most of the existing fenced paddock to raise horses or livestock, or take advantage of the current owners' preference for chicken-manure based fertilisers to set up the property as an organic farm or olive grove, with ample irrigation potential from the propertys six dams and two underground water wells.

You could even tap into the propertys heritage and its location so close to the Lovedale wine trail by re-establishing a boutique vineyard on the site, opening up future opportunities to develop a cellar door operation or build a bed and breakfast venue (subject to council approval).

The current accommodation on the property includes a charming country homestead, built in approximately 1989.

The spacious Bush Havens log-cabin style home, features three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and two spacious living areas.

Built in a classic country style with timber paneling on the walls and ceilings and rich, slate flooring underfoot the home is warm and welcoming, filled with an abundance of natural light flooding through the large awning windows.

Soaring raked ceilings enhance the spacious feeling throughout, while a row of skylights adds to the light and airy feeling of the lounge room. One of the nicest rooms in the house, with a wall of glass windows and doors providing spectacular views of the surrounding bush landscape, this vast space is ideal for entertaining family or friends.

Direct access to the wraparound verandah at the front and rear from the lounge room creates a natural flow to the outdoors, while a Daikin Inverter split system air conditioner and Jotul slow combustion wood fire ensure it remains comfortable all year round.

A second large living area opens through to the traditional u-shaped kitchen, which features custom blackwood timber cabinetry for a classic country look as well as modern stainless steel appliances.

Traditional country styling has been continued in the homes two bathrooms, with slate feature walls, a stunning clawfoot bath and vintage pedestal hand basin, while a corner spa bath adds a touch of luxury to the ensuite.
