The property

Sitting in the heart of Vacy, right on the tranquil Allyn River, this sprawling equestrian property manages to feel worlds away while still offering access to residential conveniences, including town water.

Horse enthusiasts will find endless utility in the block's professional-grade facilities, including multiple paddocks, a large multi-purpose shed with 3 phase power, a horse stable and two day yards, a separate horse shelter and a 60m x 20m dressage arena with river sand topped with flexifibre and quality timber fencing.

Four rainwater tanks keep the gardens irrigated, town water and power (plus solar) supply the main residence, and Allyn River access keeps the stock or crops hydrated. A cattle yard with race abuts the main driveway.

While this impressive set of equestrian amenities might make it seem as though the property was designed purely for horses, the thoughtfully updated country residence to the west of the block has other ideas.

A large, fully fenced lawn surrounds the home to keep the children and pets out of mischief, while a bullnose verandah wraps around the entire residence, providing 360-degree views to your morning coffee, midday meal or afternoon drink in the picturesque spa.

Step inside through the welcoming shady courtyard, and you'll find careful updates that effortlessly manage the fine line between bringing the home into the modern day while preserving its traditional country aesthetic.

Large tiles sweep through the home, meeting plush carpets in the living spaces and bedrooms, while decorative plasterwork and high ceilings stretch overhead. There's an abundance of hardy cedar throughout to complement the recently updated palette, and plenty of wide windows to provide gorgeous views of the surrounding property.

There are multiple living spaces throughout the floorplan - perfect for entertainers and large families - each of which is situated around the heart of any country residence: the open plan kitchen.

Modern updates to this kitchen combine with the scale of traditional country design to create an engine room for meal and refreshment preparation, while the overhang to the central stone benchtop and pleasant aesthetic both ensure that entertaining and hosting can also happen in this space.

Each of the six bedrooms offers plush carpets, downlights, and quality timber framing, with built-in wardrobes to two, three, four and five, and an expansive walk-in to the spacious master.

The master also includes a renovated ensuite to add a touch of privacy and elegance to the morning and evening routines, and cedar French doors providing direct access wraparound verandah and covered entertainment area.

This entertainment area, which is also accessible through the main living room, provides the best seats in the house for entertaining and relaxing in the shade with visitors, with its stunning views and surrounding greenery. And when the sky overhead is clear, you can kick back in the near-new outdoor spa during the day and cosy up by the firepit of an evening.

A large office with independent access provides a convenient location for any home business opportunities or requirements.

The township of Vacy enjoys a primary school, the newly renovated Farmer's Hotel, a general store and café, as well as an unbeatable community with a wealth of annual events to get involved in, including the Vacy Village Country Carnival and the Vacy Charity Cutting Day.

Adding to this, the quiet village of Paterson, 8km to the south, provides nearby residents with a suite of local amenities and facilities, including more cafés, a tavern, hotel and bottle shop, supermarket, preschool, public school, and medical practice, with the popular John Tucker Park nestled beside the Paterson River.
