House of the week: 163A Paterson Road, Bolwarra Heights

Feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of suburban life with a private farmland oasis in the middle of one of Maitland’s dress circle suburbs.

Situated on 27 acres at Bolwarra, ‘Austerley’ combines the romance of a 100-year-old homestead with luxurious comforts to create an enviable family lifestyle.

A stunning kitchen is the centrepiece of this fully renovated four bedroom home, which makes the most of the panoramic views over the surrounding farmlands with connected indoor and outdoor living.

Extensive agricultural assets and quality internal fixtures and fittings make working and living on this land a joy, while extensive alfresco areas and complete privacy from your neighbours ensure it is the ideal place to entertain friends and family.

Cleverly redesigned to accommodate the practicalities of family living while still giving a stylistic nod to its historic roots, this four-bedroom weatherboard and iron home seamlessly combines rustic country charm with luxury fittings and fixtures.

The entry opens directly onto the expansive kitchen/dining and living space, located around an over-sized island bench and breakfast bar. Measuring 2.0m x 1.6m and with a 90mm thick benchtop finished with a gorgeous Brazilian granite, the island bench works as both a stunning centrepiece for the room and a practical addition to the kitchen.

4 generous bedrooms are located at the western end of the house, with each featuring built-in wardrobes, ceiling fans and large windows revealing views of the surrounding rural landscape.
