From the moment you pull up at the front of this home, youll be impressed by its size, style and sense of grandeur.

Set on a generously proportioned 920sqm block in the prestigious Rathluba estate in East Maitland, this stunning two-storey home has oodles of street appeal, with a commanding facade that seems to rise up from the immaculately landscaped front yard to tower over the street.

A grand entry staircase leads up to the double-width timber front door, flanked by formal rendered columns and a pair of front balconies that make the most of the homes elevated position.

A video intercom system provides added security for the home owner, with the ability to be answered remotely via an app on your mobile phone. The system has a dual function, with seven audio visual panels spread throughout the house allowing communication between family members on different levels of the home.

The front door opens onto a grand entry foyer, with geometric patterned floor tiles drawing your eye down the hall towards the main living areas of the house.

To the left is the private parents retreat, with an enormous master bedroom spacious enough to accommodate a king-size setting. There is also plenty of room for a desk or sitting area.

Double doors lead out onto a private balcony, where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun go down over the distant farmlands.

A large walk-in wardrobe and well-appointed ensuite complete with oversized shower recess, corner spa bath and twin basin vanity completes the package, creating a secluded oasis where parents can enjoy a little downtime on their own.

The remaining three bedrooms and study (or fifth bedroom) are all located upstairs, along with a large rumpus room and generously proportioned family bathroom complete with a corner bath, large shower, twin basin vanity, and a separate toilet.

The bedrooms have been well finished with built-in wardrobes, ceiling fans and air conditioner vents. The expansive rumpus room includes architecturally striking windows with magnificent views over the distant farmlands.

The home has three additional living spaces downstairs, including a sunken lounge room to the right of the entrance hall.

Carpeted for added comfort, the vast space can easily be broken up into a number of separate areas for versatile family living, with a study nook to one side and the ability to create a cosy home theatre zone next to the recessed box shelving, where LED downlights ensure your most precious treasures can be displayed to effect.

Make the most of the homes west-facing aspect and create a separate sitting area, which allows you to open up the timber shutters and double doors to the second front balcony to enjoy cool summer breezes or the warm winter sun.

The rear of the home opens up into an immense multi-zoned space with room for another lounge setting, dining table and casual meals area.

A stunning gourmet kitchen is located on one side of this open plan area, with striking 20mm granite benchtops that wrap around and partially enclose the kitchen space to provide extensive breakfast bar seating.

Soft closing cabinetry in a beech finish and a large walk-in pantry provide plenty of storage space. Quality stainless steel appliances and twin undermounted circular sinks with a contemporary hand-held mixer tap give the kitchen touch of modern luxe.

The kitchen and dining room overlook the rear tiled verandah, which can be integrated into the internal living space via two sets of glass stacking doors. Fold them back to make the most of the cool afternoon breezes and create an indoor-outdoor flow perfect for entertaining extended family or friends. The generously sized alfresco area features the ultimate barbecue station and includes plumbed water and gas connections.

The verandah also provides the perfect spot to sit and watch the kids play in the stunning resort-style pool. Surrounded by rectangular textured tiles, the huge in-ground saltwater pool is sure to be the most popular spot in summer, with the added bonus of a separate heated spa at the back of the pool covered by shade sails.

Slatted screens and high Colorbond fences provide added privacy in this area, while neatly trimmed hedges, towering palm trees, an established herb garden and manicured lawn provide a lush, almost tropical feel in the backyard.

A set of steps around one side of the house lead up to the internal laundry, while additional steps lead down to a large concreted area, which includes a clothesline, external access to a third bathroom and a single roller door to the rear of the garage - a perfect spot for those who want to wash down their boat after a day on the water.

The homes extensive garaging is one of its key features, with enough room to accommodate seven cars accessible via two, double panel garage doors at the front. Perfect for families with multiple cars, boats or motorbikes and equipment-heavy hobbies such as cycling, surfing or kayaking, the vast under-house garaging makes the most of the elevated block and features a large workshop and storage space that is separated from the rest of the garage via a roller door.

Side access, concrete pathways around the home and external lighting add to the long list of outdoor features. Internally timber plantation shutters, ducted air conditioning, a ducted vacuuming system and higher ceilings add to the sense of liveable opulence that has been created throughout the home.

The property is ideally located within the lovely Rathluba estate, which has extensive green corridors, open spaces and recreation areas surrounding the picturesque Rathluba lagoon.

Ideally positioned within a few minutes drive of quality schools including Hunter Valley Grammar, a range of sporting and recreational facilities, and the shopping and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills, this property would be ideal for large families looking for luxury inclusions and plenty of space.

Easy access to the Hunter Expressway and John Renshaw Drive puts Newcastle, the Hunter Valley vineyards and Upper Hunter within a 40-minute radius, while the University of Newcastle, John Hunter Hospital and the Newcastle Airport are around 30 minutes away.
