Rarely does a property of this calibre enter the market and The White House is a rare offering that will captivate the discerning buyer. Situated midway between Dungog and Clarence Town and nestled on 12 beautiful acres with breathtaking views across the valley, this award-winning home – HIA Best Design 2000 and Best Metal Construction HIA 2000 – is inspired by the architectural legend Glenn Murcutt, renowned for his innate ability to effortlessly integrate a home with its surrounds. The eco-friendly design and Colorbond cladding maximise the northerly aspect. High ceilings, the all-white palette and floor to ceiling windows and glass sliding doors delivering a wonderful sense of space throughout multiple dining and living rooms. Opening to the alfresco zones, the chef’s kitchen boasts 2 Ilve cooktops, Euro ‘one and a half’ oven, Bosch dishwasher and expansive bench and storage space. A stunning ‘Queensland’ alfresco room merges the home with its lovely surrounds. It is instantly clear that relaxation and entertainment are the focus of his home.
The restful sleeping arrangements include 4 generous bedrooms all with beautiful views. There are two Masters each with ensuite and extensive BIR. The third bedroom has direct access to a modern family bathroom while the fourth bedroom, currently utilised as a study links to a music room and artist studio. A 5mx4m storeroom and workshop lends itself to conversion to a self-contained apartment ideal for guest use or possible B&B STCA. Additional features include polished concrete floors, eco-ratified blinds, an abundance of built-in storage, well-proportioned laundry, ducted and room-specific air-conditioning, Jetmaster wood-fire heating, powder room, free-to-air tv, landline, mobile reception, 3 car garage, 90,000lt rainwater tanks and enviro-cycle waste system.
Beyond the home and its almost 2 acres of gorgeous gardens and manicured lawns, the remainder of the fully fenced property is well curated natural bush boasting an abundance of native flora, fauna and birdlife. Surrounded by larger farms, there is a wonderful sense of privacy and tranquillity.
An idyllic location with all-weather road access to the region’s commercial and tourist hubs of Dungog (15mins), Clarence Town (20 mins), Raymond Terrace (40mins), Newcastle and mid-north coast beaches (1hr) and Sydney (Wahroonga 2.5hrs) confirm The White House’s credentials as delivering a superior lifestyle for permanent or weekend living.
