Overview

About the property

Turn left off Allyn River road just two minutes out of East Gresford into another world. Wind down the windows and take in the country air as you drive past neighbouring cows and horses towards Millpond Vue; a luxury homestead hidden 1.5 kilometres from the road, high on the banks of the Allyn River.

Millpond Vue is 30 minutes from Maitland and 45 minutes from Newcastle airport, a 45 min drive to Pokolbin’s vineyards or 1 hour to Newcastle for a day at the beach.

Millpond Vue was designed by a family of master craftsmen and provides around 800m2 of luxury living over three levels. Timber and glass is the feature throughout with a large wooden spiral staircase in the centre of the house that leads up to the master bedroom. The high ceilings and glass filter the country light into the homestead.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, an ensuite, lots of cupboard space and a light-filled spot to set up a computer or read a book. The second bedroom has a king bed and shares a bathroom with bedroom three that has a queen bed. Bedroom four has its own bathroom and incorporates a double bed, a single bunk bed and another single bed.

There are two large living areas where glass doors open to an expansive wrap-around verandah that looks over the countryside, through to the mountains and the base of the Barrington Tops.

The house is family friendly with lots of space. Play billiards in the games room or enjoy a beverage on the verandah. Relax in front of the fireplace or in one of the two luxurious claw foot bath tubs.

A well-equipped kitchen has all you need for entertaining. Choose to eat at one of the three locations: dine alfresco at the Tuscan Terrace with a 10 seater table, the verandah (with 6 seats) or the indoor Dining Room with an 8 seater dining table.

In the morning put the bread-maker on and take a walk around the back of the house and down to the river. On the way, help yourself to our orange, grapefruit and mandarin trees. If you’re lucky you might see a platypus or a school of fish. You can go for a swim, a fish or a row in the river.

In the evening, after a round of tennis or a country drive, treat your guests to a home-cooked pizza from the pizza oven on the Tuscan-style terrace. This is the time of day when you’ll see kangaroos and rabbits.

Millpond Vue has all the privacy and peace that country life offers, with the all the luxury of a five star retreat.

Millpond Vue house is spacious and beautiful. The owner was attentive and kind. All the quality inclusions in the house gave us the sense that we were appreciated and that the owner wanted us to enjoy ourselves. We had a wonderful weekend.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This place is breathtakingly beautiful. We were awed by the architecture inside and out, as well as the country views and spacious grounds. The house has so many different places to relax and unwind, or be entertained with activity - they have a great selection of books to read too. We enjoyed the morning nespresso coffees and strolling down to the private river. Hope to stay again soon!
