Elegant country retreat

Looking for the ultimate lifestyle retreat just minutes from urban conveniences?

This magnificent Windella property is in a class of its own, featuring an expansive country homestead that exudes sophistication and style, which is set amongst more than 1.5 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

The immaculately maintained home was built in 2006 and has benefitted from the passage of time, which has allowed the parklike gardens to grow up around it in an elegant, green embrace.

The manicured setting offers the added benefit of concealing the home from the front of the property, creating a private and peaceful ambience that makes you feel a world away from everything.

Neatly clipped hedges and solid timber fence posts give the home a country-style kerb appeal, with a freshly sealed concrete driveway sweeping down to the commanding triple garage.

A lovely, mottled brick façade contrasts against the clean lines of the Colorbond roof, while decorative timber fretwork and posts provide a traditional finish for the front verandah.

A white timber entry door with leadlight glass panels and a decorative metal and fly screen complement the country ambience, complemented by heritage-style coach lights.

Glossy porcelain tiles and high ceilings in the wide entry hall set the scene for the rest of the home, while combines a strong sense of elegance and grace with quality fixtures and finishes including detailed cornices, ducted air conditioning, LED downlights and a security intercom system with camera function.

The home has been designed in three distinct sections, with the bedroom wing at one end incorporating the private family spaces, while the expansive central living zone offers both casual and formal settings. An additional set of two bedrooms, which share a joint ensuite, offers a third zone perfect for extended families, teenagers or private guest rooms.

In total, the home has six dedicated bedrooms and a large home office that could provide a seventh bedroom if necessary or offer the ideal work from home set-up complete with a data connection point.

The bedrooms are the epitome of tranquility and comfort, with plush wool carpet underfoot, built-in wardrobes and lovely scalloped valances that provide a glamorous finishing touch for the practical window furnishings, which are a mixture of plantation shutters, sheer and blockout curtains as well as venetian blinds.

The master suite is a true parents' oasis, with a generously-proportioned room that offers enough space for a king-sized bedroom setting and quiet sitting area. Double built-in wardrobes provide more than enough room for all your personal items, while a luxuriously-finished ensuite offers an opulent space for relaxation with floor-to-ceiling tiles, a calming cream colour scheme and a built-in spa bath with tiled surrounds where you can soak away the stresses of the day.

The main family bathroom has been similarly styled, with a double basin vanity, built-in bath and large shower recess with a sleek new frameless glass screen, while a third bathroom provides the ultimate in convenience between the two guest bedrooms at the opposite end of the house.

Built to accommodate the largest of family units or those who love to entertain, the home truly comes into its own in the central living spaces, which flow seamlessly from one to the other while still being able to be sectioned off for added peace or privacy.

An open plan space with grand proportions at the heart of the floorplan provides the ideal area for connected family living, with a stunning gourmet kitchen overlooking an adjoining dining area and living room set off by glossy porcelain tiles that reflect the abundance of natural light streaming through the stunning bay window and elegant plantation shutters.

With its classic black and white colour scheme, the kitchen is a picture of elegance, with heritage-style panelling on the laminate cabinetry, stunning dark 20mm stone benchtops, designer matte black sink and gooseneck mixer tap as well as contemporary stainless steel appliances.

French doors connect this space to the formal carpeted lounge room at the front of the home, while at the other end of the dining room another tiled living room provides an ideal entertaining space with two glass doors that can open it up to the adjoining covered alfresco area for seamless indoor/outdoor living.

Another set of French doors separate this living room from the dedicated home theatre, while outside a charming pergola inside the pool yard offers the ideal place to sit back and relax while the kids take a dip in the resort-style inground concrete saltwater swimming pool.

A long list of external features ensure this is the ultimate lifestyle property for those who enjoy the peaceful ambience of a rural setting, with the 6375sqm block featuring a mix of formal manicured gardens, raised garden beds for bountiful vegetable harvests and a large stand of towering trees towards the rear boundary where animal lovers and bird watchers are bound to find plenty of native wildlife.

Additional shedding, upgraded drainage, an inground water tank for the gardens and watering outlets add to this property's overwhelming appeal.

Located in the sought-after community of Windella, this property enjoys the serenity of quiet rural surrounds just five minutes down the New England Highway from the range of supermarket and retail options in the large suburban shopping complexes in Rutherford.

The revitalised central business district of Maitland with its thriving selection of boutiques, cafes and retail shopping is just 15 minutes away while a further five-minute drive will deliver you to the major regional shopping and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre, with the vineyards of Pokolbin and the beaches of Newcastle also within easy reach.
