Relax, Cardiff Heights home brimming with retreat character


When the first owners designed the outdoor spaces at their Cardiff Heights home, they clearly had a vision of the future. 

Having connections with botanic gardens in the region, it was with great care and attention to detail that they lovingly selected trees and plants for the address that would impress for many years to come. 

Most importantly, for a block that is more than 5,600 sq/m in size, is the deliberate planting of low maintenance greenery, clearly with future generations in mind.

Attracting birds with pretty songs while providing the ultimate in privacy and ambiance, visitors, or indeed the next homeowners, could be fooled into thinking they had escaped to their own private retreat. 

The large pool, its neighbouring built-in pizza oven, covered outdoor entertaining area overlooking rainforest, rotunda, separate wine cellar and impressive water feature make it easy to see why its agent describes it as a ‘breathtaking oasis’. 

Together with a double-brick garage, self-watering garden beds, and rear courtyard mean there is never a shortage of outdoor living spaces.

“It’s very private and very secluded, you can’t see anyone from anywhere on the block,” says Love Realty director Bill Kington. 

“There’s so much to love about this property, it oozes elegance as soon as you step onto the grounds. 

“It’s a home and lifestyle opportunity.” 

Located minutes from John Hunter Hospital and New Lambton Heights, this secluded property is positioned in a rural setting, in a central location. Sprawling over 1.4 acres, surrounded by other acreage lots, a property like this does not often present itself to the market. 

“I know if I lived here, I’d spend most of my time on the covered deck, and I think I’d be there all year round,” Mr Kington added.

Tucked in a corner of the expansive block, accessed by its own private laneway, is the shed the agent says is ideal for housing a number of “toys”. 

“It’d be perfect for a vintage car, a motorhome, or even a homebrew.” 

And, that’s all before you’ve set foot inside the home. 

Purchased in 2001, from its original owners, the parcel of land at 85A Main Road Cardiff Heights has been “planted with purpose” according to its current owner.

Its diverse array of tree species and north-south facing layout has made it ideal for entertaining. 

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with gas fireplace in the formal dining rooms and wood fireplace in the living room, make it comfortable year-round.

“We raised our three daughters here and it’s seen lots of friends around the pool,” the home owner says.

“But, it’s also a lovely winter home with the fireplace and wood touches, and it keeps its cool in summer.  

“It is a great home all year round.” 

It could easily feature in a wedding or vacation setting too. 

Inside, the architecturally designed, well-built home is best described as ‘chalet style’, a robust quality structure with an array of western red cedar and Tasmanian oak accents throughout. 

And, when it comes to neighbours, the former tomato orchard is ripe for the picking. 

“It sits on a community road shared with likeminded people,” the owner explained. 

“We’re not in a hurry to leave but we’re in our 70s and we’ve found something we like. 

“I will say, it will be hard to replace this home.”
