Located at Oakhampton Heights overlooking five glorious, undulating acres (2.02 hectares) this is lavish, country living at its finest. Leading down to a natural lagoon and close to the peaceful Walka Recreation and Wildlife Reserve, this sensational fairy tale property is a must-see for the most discerning buyer.
People are, quite simply, drawn to this home again and again. It not only offers a yearned-for sense of space and serenity, but also exudes an inspiring atmosphere of warmth and welcome.
Built for sophisticated living, this elevated, expansive residence has sweeping rural vistas and inviting gardens, and has been thoughtfully designed with multiple, generously proportioned living and sleeping zones for relaxation and pleasure, all with luxury fixtures and fittings. All this, and most importantly located in one of Maitland's premier suburbs, so it offers the best of everything.
When you step inside the grand entryway of this inviting, light-filled haven of harmony, be impressed with the striking proportions, natural light and fresh, inviting feel. Stylish throughout and with so much thought given to every little detail, this is a special sanctuary.
Facing north with high ceilings, the delightful tiled, free-flowing kitchen and informal living, dining and bar areas spill out to resort-style outdoor living and entertaining spaces, in-ground saltwater swimming pool and stylish gazebo. This multifunctional hub is all about entertaining on any scale.
Additional living areas include a media room and second lounge area with its own separate study nook/utility room.
The gourmet kitchen is a pleasure for everyone, including the chef. It boasts sleek lines, glass splashbacks, expansive bench space, Bosch and ASKO appliances (including a gas cooktop and electric oven) and a large, walk-in pantry for all your essentials.
All five king-size bedrooms are cleverly designed private retreats, so everyone has room to move and space to breathe when you have guests staying. They boast quality carpeting, built-ins, block-out blinds, huge windows and lovely garden views, with the spa-like master suite featuring a walk-in robe and separate ensuite with vanity, shower, bath and toilet. Three other opulent bathrooms, one with bath, have vanities, showers and toilets.
Encapsulating a living area, bathroom and kitchenette, bedroom five is its own separate haven. It would function well as a teenager's retreat or granny flat - or you could convert it into an art studio.
Further appealing features such as downlights, reverse-cycle ducted air, gas points throughout and ceiling fans all add to the wonderful lifestyle on offer. There's also a two-and-half car garage, separate large rural shed, a water tank, low-maintenance, self-watering systems for the gardens and bird life galore.
This very private residence is fully fenced and has manicured lawns dotted with gorgeous gums. With secure paddock fencing, your horses will enjoy a happy home. And there's room to move for motorbikes and quad bikes.
Even better, this charming retreat is only 10 minutes' drive to the major regional centre of Maitland, 40 minutes to Newcastle, two hours to Sydney, and 30 minutes to the Hunter Valley's world-renowned wineries and restaurants.
Ideal as a family home, for a relaxed retirement or as a gracious weekender away from it all, for the ultimate country lifestyle and upmarket living, you won't want to miss this stunner - and have a fairy tale ending!
