The Athabascan

Villa 5

The Athabascan is suitable for up to eight (8) guests on two levels.

The villa’s with private views provide for unique accommodation, all surrounding by huge spotted gums around your very private site. The open plan living layout of the villa is provided with a beautiful vista overlooking the Shiraz and Semillon vines, the rolling field looking out across the dams to the cattle ranch overlooked by the soaring Brockenback mountain range.

Unwind in the lounge area, relaxing by your crackling slow combustion log fire or sit back in your reverse cycle air conditioning. Awaken with hot air balloons drifting by that quite often land in the overlooking field directly nearby. Enjoy a quiet moment on your own covered veranda or a BBQ on your private lawn, picnic table or lounge chairs taking in the view of the vines in the foreground and the soaring Brokenback mountain range peaking up from the back. Or alternatively, stroll with the abundant birdlife surrounding you, meander through the vineyards or picnic by the one of the three dams enjoying views of kangaroos nibbling the grass at dusk, grazing horses and overlooking the expanse of the cattle ranch that surrounds  on all sides.

You are surrounded by natures offerings in a sweeping country property, and yet you are immediately amongst the Pokolbin, Rothbury and Lovedale vineyards, cellar doors, restaurants and entertainment offerings of the Hunter.

 The upstairs loft bedroom is fitted with a queen bed and also the private downstairs bedroom furnished with two (2) single beds. The high cathedral ceilings of the loft bedroom and living areas allow for the feeling of space to overlook the vineyards, with the loft bedroom being accessed via a spiral staircase.

 A fully fitted kitchen with espresso machine allows for casual dining either at the four person dining table inside or alternatively overlooking the Shiraz vineyards of the estate, dining outside at the four person table on the walkout covered veranda. Alternatively, feel the grass between your toes and enjoy your own picnic table with umbrella.
