After pouring her energy into creating a space that could heal others, Nu Leaf Retreat owner Sarah Polson is now taking a step back to replenish. The impressive 14-acre rural property that she transformed into a health retreat over the past six years, is now in need of a new custodian.
Boasting a ten-bedroom guesthouse, gym, indoor hydrotherapy pool, day spa, commercial kitchen, conferencing facilities, landscaped in-ground outdoor pool, boutique vineyard, machinery, shedding and sprawling country homestead sitting on 5.67 hectares, this address is a blank canvas, or a walk-in ready profitable business.
It seems its up to the buyer as to how much they want to make of what is already on-site.
Sarah saw a wellness retreat in her vision for the property. During her tenure she managed to secure regular bookings for Pilates and yoga retreats, day spa, boutique accommodation and conferences.
It was even featured as a preferred accommodation option with Qantas Holidays.
But the address could also be the ideal wedding venue, reputable restaurant, or events venue.
The on-site boutique vineyard could be used to make small quantities of wine with the help of a local
“I achieved what I came here to do,” Sarah says. “But there is still so much potential in the place.”
Located on one of the Hunter Valley’s most popular tourist drives, this rural address is easy to find, but once you set foot on the site You find yourself in a different mindset, Ms Polson says.
Welcomed by a line of olive trees that lead directly to a guesthouse-slash-retreat, visitors are immediately embraced by a rural feel.
With eight of the ten suites equipped with its own full bathroom, including bath, lounge, table and chairs, and private deck overlooking the vineyard, there is little left of the city traffic stress once harboured.
“The first thing people notice once they step out of their car is how peaceful it is here. Then when they leave, they comment on what an amazing place I have created.”
Reluctant to offer a price guide, this property is expected to fetch close to $5 million.
