Lifestyle Block

  • This lovingly restored and extended historic villa sits on just under 5 acres. approx. 3km North of Warkworth township on State Highway One, immediately opposite Sheep World.  Access to this circular shaped lifestyle block is via a long metal driveway from the gated entrance; past attractive and protected wetland pond and planting (belonging to neighbouring property) around grassed turntable to villa entrance gates.  Resurfaced parking and turnaround provides plenty of off-street parking; ample room for guests staying at your bed and breakfast, should you choose.
  • Stock yards provide for animal herding. There is a historic red barn/woolshed (home of Warkworth Dog trailing club in past years).  Grazing is fenced into three paddocks.
  • The land is flat to sloping in contour, steeper behind the vlla, providing shelter from the prevailing South Westerly winds of winter.  Established mature trees, English country garden and orchard complete the ‘to the manor born’ feel of this splendid sheltered lifestyle location, encircled as it is by the remaining farmland from which it was originally subdivided. There is a hen house, a dog run, detached double car garaging and two outdoor chalets/work rooms/sleep outs
  • Water supply for the house is from roof collection into two concrete tanks.
