Dream Home On 45 Acres

If you've ever dreamed of owning a private and tranquil property just 5km to town with an amazing house and an amazing garden all set on a 40+ acres then you're in luck ... we have it!

Situated at the base of a bush covered mountain with a truly beautiful rural outlook, this traditional four bedroom home has been seamlessly melded with an edgy on-trend extension incorporating two living zones, dining, kitchen and covered north facing alfresco area - all with the most jaw-dropping rural views.

Finished in a confident colour palette of strong dark hues in green, greys and blues with the use of black a striking feature: Smart windows with thick black framing, solid stone benchtops and speckled black exposed brickwork, made from locally sourced repurposed bricks, are just some of the many adventurous but brilliantly executed design aspects of this build.

Kitchen includes soft close drawers, AEG appliances including double underbench ovens, 900mm gas cooktop and dishwasher, with the retractable hideaway exhaust fan a superb design choice for practicality.

At the southern end is the original 1930's home. The traditional wide hallway leads to four good-sized bedrooms with well-appointed main bathroom featuring an ornate timber vanity, mirror and claw foot bath. Master with walk-thru robes with excellent storage capacity and en suite. An additional living zone makes this the perfect kids retreat. The traditional wrap-around verandas offer a different aspect and view from every side with access to the Eastern side through double French doors.

The garden design is nothing short of stunning. A gorgeous central stone-courtyard ties all components of the property together: the home, shedding, entertainment area and the grassy house yard, finished with the awe-inspiring bush-land backdrop. Well established with an extensive and beautiful plant selection it is easily maintained with water pumped from the large dam. A dramatic feature retaining wall set into the sloping hill is made from huge repurposed concrete blocks, locally sourced. Ample water supply for the home with a 100,000 litre tank readily filled from extensive roof catchment area.
Solar passive design aspects: including large verandas and awnings, north facing living with smart windows, extensive solar - back to grid and insulation. Gas hot water & wood heating.
House block plus two additional paddocks with a good mix of cleared and treed land and quality fencing and gates.

Located 5km to the Armidale CBD and only 4.5km from The Armidale School with the school bus, garbage collection and mail delivery at gate - this simply stunning property really offers all you could want in acreage family living. For your private viewing contact the HH team today on 6772 5333.

Peter stuck with us!
Peter’s support and expertise were excellent and very appreciated. He went above and beyond time and time again to help our purchase go as smoothly as possible. Peter was extremely patient with both us and the vendor and there is no way the sale would have occurred without his professionalism, continual chasing and local knowledge. Thanks Peter!!

My experience selling with Peter and his team
Peter and the HH team were extremely professional and enthusiastic. They were warm, friendly, and gave helpful advice. Peter was clear in his communication, gave me plenty of time when I had questions, and handled all negotiations with ease. It was an incredibly easy process for me and I am thrilled with the result.
They were particularly impressive given the COVID-19 crisis and the difficulties they faced listing and showing my property. They handled this tricky time with calm, grace, reassurance, and confidence.
Thank you!
