795 ACRES IN HUNTER VALLEY WINE COUNTRYLocated in the beating heart of the beautiful Hunter Valley, this massive 795 acre parcel of land is, to our knowledge, the largest remaining private holding in Wine Country. It is steeped in history having never traded outside of the family since the original land grant and is home to some of the most spectacular views in the district. An enviable trophy that can be passed-down through many generations, an ideal resort site or a commercial development opportunity with development approval for an 8 lot rural subdivision already in place, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Rockview has excellent frontage to Deasys Road and is mostly well grassed, gently undulating grazing land with select stands of shade trees. Overflowing with charm, an original weatherboard homestead sits among majestic old fig trees in the middle of the property and provides weekend accommodation for the owners as well as a window into the property’s rich heritage.
The zoning of the property allows integrated tourism such as accommodation, a resort, restaurants, a hotel, vineyards or a winery in addition to grazing and other agricultural activities. While a property of this size is suitable for mixed grazing and agricultural use, including establishment of the largest vineyard in the lower Hunter, it also provides a perfect setting for development of the Hunter Valley’s most prestigious residence.
The iconic property has been owned by 5 generations of the Deasy Family and descendants since the 1860’s. At a time when they had the opportunity to choose the finest land available, the Deasy family chose Rockview and have continued to farm it with cattle, sheep and crops over 140 years. Rockview has functioning cattle yards, is well fenced, watered by numerous dams and could gain access to the Wine Country Private Irrigation Scheme.
The views and ambience from Rockview are superb, park like and enchanting and complete an opportunity that may not be available again for another 140 years. In fact there may never again be an opportunity to acquire a property of its calibre and size in this tightly held location.
Inspection by private appointment.
