Architect Designed Eco Friendly Boutique Vineyard

This stunning home was designed by award winning Sydney based South African architect, Ian Poole. He and his wife planted the vines and olives on this prime 42 acres around 30 years ago.

The grapes are Chambourcin which are often sought by Hunter Valley vineyards. Around 6 acres of fully irrigated vines are currently grown on the property. Either start your own private wine collection, share with friends, or try out at the local markets.

The olives are Koreiki and Leccino. The vendor estimates this year's crop will yield tonnes. A sizeable fully fenced olive plantation of about 280 trees awaits your influence and inspiration. Also fully fenced, fruiting and ready for consumption is a small orchard of apricots, pears, quince, apples, mulberries, lemons and sweet lemons.

The warm, earthy home is a spectacular example of Australian architecture and blends beautifully with its environment with an arched roof line. Efficiency is a key inspiration in the design and all 4 bedrooms feature either large glass windows or sliding doors bringing the outdoors in. The master bedroom with ensuite features electric blinds and a private deck. The open plan living is fantastic for entertaining with a private native bush outlook and the centrepiece is a toasty double sided fireplace. The house is an amazing concept of steel frames and glass which needs to be seen to be believed.

There are still many arable acres here to be used how you wish with a fantastic outlook from the highest point. Explore some of the property's bushland and native animals on the way to the far boundary which adjoins Howes Valley Creek.

The eco friendly property runs predominantly off solar power but has mains power connected at the front. An abundance of water is available with a 15 megalitre licensed bore, 100,000 litre water tank, 3 other tanks, a dam, and creek frontage. A cathedral style shed and another 4 bay shed make for an ideal storage and workshop area.

The vendor says the best feature of the place is being bordered by the vast Yengo National Park. Hundreds of varieties of birds include lyrebirds, whipbirds, bellbirds, gang-gang cockatoos, wedge tailed eagles, wild ducks, honeyeaters, treecreepers, and finches. Also share the property with wallabies, kangaroos, wombats and echidnas.

Visitors love the blanket of stars at night. There's no light pollution, so the milky way looks like a river and shooting stars galore can be spotted. The current owners have made additional income from $528 per night via Airbnb with the potential to earn more. One stay and they don't want to leave.

Offerings of this calibre are rare. Call Nathan to arrange your private inspection today.
