Modern rural oasis

Featuring a striking design, tranquil rural views and generously sized lifestyle block, this stunning Seaham property offers a contemporary country retreat close to city conveniences.

Positioned on an approx. 1,195sqm block with elevated views over surrounding farmland to the Williams River, the architecturally-designed home offers a peaceful, private oasis with low maintenance landscaped gardens and manicured lawns, while a stand of towering gum trees separate it from its rear neighbours.

No expense has been spared with the quality of the home's building materials and inclusions, with Colorbond and hardwood cladding giving it a contemporary external aesthetic while premium fittings provide a luxury internal finish.

Given the property's rural setting, even though the surrounds are quite clear and open, the home has been built to the highest fire rating standards for added peace of mind, with steel flyscreens and glazed glass to all doors and windows, fully insulated walls, ceiling and floors, and fire proofing material installed behind the timber cladding.

The home's design also caters for potential future additions, with the window in one of the children's bedrooms designed to be converted to a doorway if the home was to be extended.

The home's current layout is ideal for modern families or empty-nesters who love to accommodate guests, with the central open plan living, dining and kitchen area separating the master suite from the two remaining bedrooms for added privacy.

The two bedrooms that face the front of the property, including the master suite, have been designed to make the most of the panoramic views on offer, with walls of windows bringing nature to you while you lie back in bed.

A wall behind the bedhead in the master suite conceals a spacious walk-behind wardrobe with fixed shelving, as well as access to the beautifully-appointed ensuite, where you can relax in the opulent freestanding bath and enjoy the tranquility of nature through the large glass window.

The list of luxuries continues with a large semi-framed glass shower recess with two rain shower heads, while a sleek wall-hung vanity oozes contemporary country style with its mixture of glossy white handless cabinetry, modern square countertop basin and beautiful benchtop.

The main bathroom, which is easily accessible from the two remaining bedrooms, features the same lovely modern styling, as well as a cavity sliding door to the adjoining laundry for added practicality.

The central open plan living space is the heart of this home, providing a warm and inviting connection between the separate bedroom wings.

A huge glass sliding door ensure nature is front and centre in this room, perfectly framing the surrounding landscape while also offering a seamless indoor/outdoor connection between the living areas and rear timber deck.
Timber-look laminate floorboards and a timber ceiling fan add warmth and texture to the space, while also providing another link to the natural environment, while the slow combustion wood fire heater is a must for any rural home, offering that touch of cosy country style and substance.

Neutral walls and white kitchen cabinetry allow the landscape to remain the focal point of this space while also helping to bounce the natural light around the room for a bright and airy ambience.

The kitchen is a sleek and contemporary area with luxurious touches including Caesarstone benchtops, a large central island bench with waterfall ends and breakfast bar, as well as industrial-style twin pendant lights.

The stunning Andy Warhol glass insert feature tiles on the splashback add personality to the kitchen, while quality fittings including a Hafele electric oven with gas cooktop and pull-out rangehood provide the finishing touches.

The expansive partially-covered alfresco deck is the perfect place to entertain or sit back and enjoy the views, while the detached single Colorbond garage and covered double carport also feature a good-sized studio with sliding glass sliding doors leading out to its own covered verandah.

With a tranquil setting that makes it feel a world away from suburbia, the property is ideal for those wanting to enjoy a semi-rural lifestyle, while its location less than 15 minutes from Raymond Terrace, less than 20 minutes from Maitland and 35 minutes from Newcastle, ensures it is in easy reach of a variety of retail and commercial precincts, as well as a range of sporting, educational, healthcare and recreational facilities.

Seaham itself offers a well-stocked general store and quality primary school, while those who enjoy outdoor activities can spend time at the local sporting facilities and park, with easy access to the meandering Williams River for boating and water sports.
