Located high above the surrounding vineyards with 360 degree views from Brokenback Range to Bimbadgen Estate, this 54 acre country estate is very privately set in the beating heart of Hunter Valley Wine Country and features a sprawling 5 bedroom luxurious country home and 2 x two bedroom self-contained cottages set on park-like grounds offering accommodation for up to 20 guests.

Degen Estate offers up to 9 bedrooms consisting of the main 5 bedroom house and both two bedroom cottages.

Arriving at the property, you are greeted by impressive gates which sets your expectations of what is to come. The main house is surrounded by manicured lawns with an established fruit orchard, select stands of native timber, manicured hedges, a stunning pool and a magnificent vineyard. Your first cellar door tasting is only a few steps away at the charming Degen Cellar Door.

Outside of the main house, wide paved verandas hug the entire property with sweeping views. Stepping inside the main house you are greeted by designer interiors and luxury features all designed to create a memorable stay. An open plan summer house with views to the mountain range is the first room you will encounter followed by an entertainment den with widescreen TV and leather lounges. The contemporary galley-style gourmet kitchen features European appliances, stone bench tops and everything you would need to cater for your group. A roaring gas fire is featured in the generous dining room which flows to the outside entertainment space with BBQ and sweeping views across the Hunter Valley. At one end of the house are two well-appointed guest suites complete with en-suites. In the centre of the property you have two spacious bedrooms leading off the main living areas. At the other end of the house is a bathroom and powder room. The huge master bedroom features an en-suite including a spa bath, shower and double basins.

The accompanying cottages have two bedrooms, both with luxury bedding, a modern bathroom, kitchen and open living space spilling out to an open veranda with BBQ and private views of the vineyards.

You will only be moments to surrounding vineyards, concert venues like Bimbadgen Estate and Hope Estate, The Vintage Golf Resort and within five minutes of the Hunter Expressway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST wedding weekend we could have asked for!!! From the moment we set eyes on Degen estate, escorted by our friends at Hunter Concierge, we knew we had found the perfect venue and location for our wedding weekend getaway. The House and surrounding grounds were absolutely perfect for our special day and featured prominently in our gorgeous wedding photos!! The Degens are a lovely family and truly worked to make our weekend extra special by rushing to ensure the installation of the amazing pool, which added that extra touch of class to our occasion. We met the whole family over the lead up and had wonderful experiences with each of them. The house provided very classy and comfortable accommodated our wedding party as was perfect for side events and get togethers around the massive 22 seat dining table! Our guests raved about how amazing the place was and the breathtaking views they took in over the east to west of stunning Rothbury. The sophisticated styling features in all the bridal photos and the backdrop of the stunning and spectacular grounds and SUNSET really make our photos captured throughout the weekend super special and will forever remain in our hearts (and albums). Degen wines were also a very special treat for the bridal party, each receiving rave reviews (ask for the Special Release Shiraz, to die for)!! I would recommend this place (complete with self contained cottages) to anyone planing a weekend away with friends, or a lovely couple planning their big day (Make sure you get in touch with Luke and Dave at HC). We'll definitely be back to reminisce and enjoy and appreciate the beautiful place that will forever remain a part of our lives. Thank you once again Sasha, Jean and Tom for our amazing experience and cherished memories. Love The Grooms

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Birthday weekend away Great property, fridge was well stocked with food and wine, I had my birthday here with 13 people and stayed in the main house and cottage. Only disappointment was the fire could not be used. This was one of the main reasons I chose this place. Pool will be great in Summer
