Wide, covered wrap-around verandahs embrace this traditional ranch-style residence on 6.6 picturesque acres minutes from quaint Vacy Village in the heart of the Hunter Valley. Situated on a gentle rise, the home enjoys glorious views to distant hills. Feature windows and sliding doors throughout merge the home with its surroundings and fill the warm and inviting interior with natural light.

Outside the acreage is fully cleared to grazing with shade trees. Currently fenced into one paddock the property is ideal for horses, donkeys, cattle, alpacas and a variety of hobby-farming pursuits. Proximity to the Hunter's equestrian and agri-business hubs of Maitland (30mins), Singleton (50mins) and Newcastle (1hr) enhance the property's appeal.
With an idyllic rural lifestyle that will appeal to a variety of buyers, this delightful property ticks all the boxes.
