'Our Place' Rustic Cottage on 23 Magical Acres

Nestled on a grassy plateau in an elevated position, this gorgeous timber-constructed cottage reflects the romance of an Australiana bush-house to a tee! Surrounded by stunning bushland with many natural species of trees, including grey gums, iron and stringy barks, native orchids and beautiful wildflowers. Amazing rock features are a focal point of the property, drawing your eye to the lush landscape surrounds. Rock escarpments, abundant local fauna and flora, intriguing bushwalks and most of all, absolute peace and quiet! The 9.43-hectare (approx. 23 acre) property offers a unique lifestyle in an area that is easily accessible from Sydney, the Central Coast and Newcastle. Situated in the historic Wollombi Valley, the area is rich in history dating back to the early 1800’s.

The cottage comprises open plan living spaces, a quaint country-style kitchen, early settlers’ inspired bathroom, a spacious downstairs main bedroom with doors opening to the verandah, two upstairs loft rooms and an open mezzanine area, all available as potential sleeping quarters, with lovely views to the hills. Full of character throughout, the features of the home are endless. A stunning, sandstone fireplace is centrally located within the open plan living area, ideal for the winter months, creating a place of warmth to gather with family and friends. Lovely stained-glass windows and hardwood, timber floors compliment the extraordinary timber-slab construction of the house. The high, gabled, roof line provides an open airy feel and extends the sense of space in the living areas.  

A large, outdoor, undercover verandah takes advantage of the property’s aspect, looking down into the valley and across to the luscious dam, alive with flowering water lilies. Pretty as a picture, the scenery is a photographer and nature-lover’s dream location. The house also hosts an easily accessible storeroom underneath, ideal for your equipment and storage needs.

The house is an approved dwelling with an Occupation Certificate; has mains power connected, Foxtel satellite dish for TV, gas hot water system and is accessed via a 2WD track, conveniently located off Blaxlands Arm Road, Laguna. Just a short drive to the Great Northern Trading Post and Laguna Wine Bar, and the magical, historic Wollombi Village a few more kilometers down the road. The property has easy access to Sydney and would make an ideal, weekend retreat for city folks, or those wishing to relocate permanently and enjoy the Hunter Valley lifestyle.
