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.
