One look is all it takes to fall in love with this magnificent one-of-a-kind rural property and architecturally-designed homestead, ideally located in the heart of the Upper Hunter Valley.

With all the luxury inclusions you'd expect from an executive level home and the lifestyle benefits that come with an expansive acreage located just 15 minutes from the conveniences of town, this property is the ultimate treechange escape.

Located in a tightly-held rural area on the eastern outskirts of Muswellbrook, the property is named 'Bunderra' after the mob of black rock wallabies that live near the stacked stone and decorative iron front entry gates.

Concealed within its natural bushland setting, the home sits at the end of a long gravel driveway flanked by towering gum trees.

Thoughtfully designed to fit comfortably within the landscape, it is a sophisticated reimagining of a traditional country homestead, with an architecturally refined style and a sympathetic earthly colour palette inspired by the trees that surround it.

Rows of blooming rose bushes and cobbled sandstone pathways add colour and texture to the home's external landscaping, while wide merbau verandahs wrap right around the exterior for that traditional homestead fa├žade.

Meticulously planned by its owners as their ultimate dream home, the custom-designed residence was built in 2010 and features premium inclusions, eye-catching focal points and a family-friendly layout.

Oriented to capture the best features of the surrounding landscape from its expansive glass doors and windows, the home also has a passive solar design and glass louvres for cross ventilation that ensure it stays naturally cool in summer and warm in winter.

The home's versatile layout offers the ideal separation between living and sleeping zones, with the split-level design allowing peace and privacy in the bedrooms while encouraging families to come together and connect in the vast open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room.

The entry level includes two generously-proportioned bedrooms with all the inclusions, from plush chocolate-coloured carpet and three-step cornices to lavish walk-behind wardrobes with sensor lights and a full fit-out of hanging and shelving space.

An additional bedroom or study is located off the same central hallway, providing the perfect home office set-up, while the beautifully styled family bathroom and well-appointed laundry with the ultimate built-in storage and bench space complete the entry level accommodation.

Step down into the rear section of the home and you'll understand exactly what the owners were hoping for when they designed their vast central living space.

Two sets of double glass stacker doors perfectly frame the picturesque outlook over the landscape to the distant mountain ranges, and can be opened up to link this internal space with the wide covered verandah for seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining.

At one end of the open plan living zone is a huge gourmet kitchen with an ideal layout that places the 900mm Glem freestanding dual function gas stove and oven in the return benchtop overlooking the living space to keep you connected to the rest of the family while you cook.

Glossy underbench and overhead cabinetry, gleaming 40mm speckled stone benchtops and glass splashbacks give the kitchen a sleek, contemporary look while a spacious walk-in pantry adds to the ample storage options.

The glowing golden tones of the polished blue gum hardwood flooring provides a seamless connection between the kitchen, dining and living space, while also mirroring the natural textures of the bush landscape.

A wood-burning fireplace with tiled hearth located at the other end of the open plan area provides a cosy heat throughout the home while adding a touch of traditional country ambience to the lounge area.

Stainless steel ceiling fans and an eight-zoned ducted air conditioning system provide the practical solutions for year-round climate control, although the home's passive solar design ensures you'll barely need to switch them on.

A romantic timber and iron spiral staircase provides an architecturally striking focal point in the living space, twisting up to the topmost level of the home where you'll find the ultimate parents' oasis.

Featuring a private deck with a bird's eye view over the picturesque rural landscape and two identical master suites that allow you to choose your preferred outlook while setting the other aside for family or guests, this level oozes luxury, privacy and comfort, with a lavish ensuite that services both bedrooms, charming dormer window nooks and extensive concealed walk-in wardrobes and storage spaces.

While the home is nothing short of magnificent, the property itself is also stacked with features that make it the ideal place to raise a family while living a traditional rural lifestyle.

Ideally set up for agricultural pursuits and those who want to be self-sufficient, the property features more than 44 hectares (over 110 acres) of cleared pastures and natural countryside separated into eight fenced paddocks including the house yard.
