This exceptional lifestyle estate is only 50 minutes from Sydney, within easy access of Gosford and the beaches of the Central Coast and the Hawkesbury River and Hunter Valley. Located amongst some of Australia's top equestrian properties. 28ha of undulating meadows flow through the boutique avocado plantation to the lake-sized spring-fed dam and on to the natural woodlands, alive with Australian native flora and fauna. Sit by the fully stocked dam and enjoy a quiet afternoon of fishing or wait patiently to spot the family of platypus that has made the bank of the dam their home.
The main residence is superb - a modern design classic, conceived and built by award winning architects, JR Blair & Sons. Natural materials, many harvested from the grounds of the estate, have been blended with traditional Australian 'bush' building materials, including corrugated iron and Australian cedar, to complete and enhance the feel of a traditional Australian 'country house' designed for the 21st century.
Landscaped, fully irrigated gardens created by renowned designer Michael Cook blend ecology and especially selected native plants to enhance the modern design of the main residence and guest residence, creating a dramatic visual impact.
The main residence is both sumptuous in size and quality. Imported Turkish marble, 100 year-old timbers, Australian cedar and especially slumped glass doors have been used throughout to create unique living, dining, entertaining and work spaces crafted to an exceptional standard. In addition to the 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms with heated floors, 6 powder rooms, library, games room, gym, stunning living and dining areas and modern open plan kitchen (complete with Cold Room), the home provides a 20-meter long indoor heated pool built in a fully engineered glassed high-roofed and humidified area.
The adjacent guest house/ manager's residence overlooks the 600 Avocado tree plantation and large level pastures that offer beautiful grazing country, its design reflecting the modern aspects of the main residence providing two-bedroom accommodation with combined living and dining areas. There is a large drive through shed that would provide excellent stables, feed and tack rooms and garaging for further vehicles.
