Location and lifestyle

Whether you love the uninterrupted view over the surrounding farmlands or the opportunities offered by having seven acres a stone's throw from the city centre, this fantastic Bolwarra property is something special.

Nestled on the edge of the fertile river flats, and sitting below the residential portion of Bolwarra thanks to a dip in the landscape, this neatly concealed property feels a world away from the suburban streets, yet remains within walking distance of the main amenities.

From the top of the long sweeping drive you're less than 500m from the highly regarded Bolwarra Public School and a nearby childcare centre, as well as the playground, sporting facilities and open spaces of the Bolwarra Sporting Complex and nearby nature reserve.

With no other neighbours in sight and densely packed established trees separating it from the nearest house, the property enjoys a tranquil rural ambience that is almost impossible to find in such a central and convenient location.

Originally part of a far larger landholding used as a dairy farm, the fertile seven-acre property is a rare offering so close to town, featuring unrivalled views and plenty of potential for those looking for a large property to build their dream home on.

With so much land to choose from you'll be able to pick the perfect site and custom design your new home to suit the aspect and landscape, making the most of its privacy from surrounding homes and the picturesque outlook over the river flats towards East Maitland and Morpeth.

The existing cottage could also be redeveloped for use as your main residence, as a second home or guest house, opening up the potential to create an income stream from bed and breakfast-style accommodation (subject to council approval), or pool your resources with another family to purchase a property large enough to give everyone plenty of their own space to enjoy.

Investors keen to maximise the potential of this property's central location and bucolic beauty could explore the possibility of creating a sought-after boutique rural redevelopment, subject to rezoning and council approval.

Buyers looking to hang on to the land's rural character will appreciate the existing large paddock with electric fencing, which wraps around the house yard at the rear and eastern side and offers plenty of room for horses or a few head of cattle.

Hobby farmers have plenty of room to keep chickens or establish a market garden or extensive orchard, with fruit trees having previously been grown successfully by the owners for an abundant harvest.

Two single carports and a powered, single lock-up garage with workshop provide plenty of storage space for family vehicles, farm machinery and other tools.

Towering jacarandas line the driveway, providing a magnificent display of purple blossoms each spring, while trimmed hedges draw the eye towards the lovely early 1900s cottage.

With a beautifully maintained exterior that was repainted last year, and a stunning semi-wraparound timber deck that has been recently re-oiled, the weatherboard and Colorbond roof home simply oozes character and charm.

Step inside the timber and glass panel door and you'll be swept away by the beauty of the original period features, from the ornately detailed cornices and high decorative ceilings to the timber hallway fretwork, cedar dado boards and picture rails.

The rich tones of the original tallowwood floorboards add warmth and texture to the living spaces, complementing the elegance of the cast iron fireplaces with their turned timber mantels and jewel-coloured tiled hearths in the adjoining formal lounge and dining rooms.

Renovations completed by the owners many years ago added two additional living spaces as well as a fourth bedroom, ensuring the home caters for large families, while a dedicated study and a spacious kitchen ripe for renovation add to the home's internal accommodation.

A much-loved home for almost 50 years, the tightly-held property offers a haven for families seeking plenty of space for children to enjoy a traditional country lifestyle, with its ideal location in the blue ribbon suburb of Bolwarra providing an expansive private oasis close to town with plenty of potential.

The bustling city centre of Maitland is just five minutes to the south west across the other side of the Hunter River, offering up a wide range of shopping, cultural, sporting and entertainment options, as well as a well-regarded dining precinct.

The Harry Boyle bridge five minutes to the south east provides easy access to the attractions of East Maitland and the regional retail and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre, while also making short work of the trip to the historic riverside village of Morpeth with its charming collection of cafes, art galleries and interesting boutiques.

For those looking to travel further afield, the stunning coastline of Newcastle and the tranquil waters of Lake Macquarie can be reached in around 40 minutes, while Newcastle Airport at Williamtown will have you jetting to a range of regional and metropolitan destinations in no time.
