Positioned within close proximity to the Hunter Wine country tourism area, an hour's drive from Newcastle and an easy 2.5 hours from Sydney, Hambledon Hill represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a beautiful piece of the Hunter Valley's rich and fascinating history.

The house is surrounded by approximately 10 acres of gardens, set on 17.67 hectares being 43.29 acres.

An area of the garden is a wonder with a collection of now established, rare, endangered and valuable trees from Africa. Water for the garden is provided from a well with an electric submersible pump near the River. Surrounding the gardens the land is dotted with groves of mature Eucalypts, Jacarandas and Peppercorn Trees, over 50 Hoop pines, and contains a large dam. Over 2,000 trees have been planted to form a triple 'hedge' around 3 sides of the property boundary.
