This includes a gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry, his and hers walk-in robes, triple garage, additional workshop, very generous living and private spaces, and so much more.

If you’re keen on building a luxurious country retreat with all the acreage property must-haves mentioned above, you might then be asking, why is the Hunter Valley such a standout option for building in regional Australia? Well, the Hunter Valley is continuing to show strong developmental potential through the extensive planning and vision of developers and the Local Council. Current developments are supporting existing industries thriving in the area, such as mining, agriculture, hospitality, and tourism, as well as working to create solid infrastructure, providing employment opportunities through the building of new schools, shopping districts and recreational facilities.

comforting to know the Hunter Valley is a solid financial investment. Projects like The Levee in Maitland nearing completion, Huntlee the brand new town just outside of Branxton selling early stages, and the recent sale of the expansive Anvil Creek site which is tipped to include a golf course, amphitheatre and further residential opportunities, is creating a lot of interest in the property market.

The recent spike in interest is also partially thanks to the recent upgrade of major arterial roads, in particular the Hunter Expressway. Getting in and out of the area is quicker and easier than ever with Newcastle less than an hour away. Plus, as more attention has been drawn into the growing population, so too is the focus on ensuring public transport also keeps up – which is usually a good sign for future proofing an investment.
