This is no ordinary table as it demands gatherings, abundance of fine food and celebrations.
The living room provides an armchair for every mood and time of day so you can relax in your chosen spot by the open fireplace to catch up with friends, or curl up with a good story in a secluded corner of the property's entertainment and library room.

Colonial, Danish and Victorian influences dance together effortlessly and create an interior of thoughtful surprise and delight for guests. Styled with classic white and romantic linens that interplay between jet black enamel features, up-cycled walnut treasures all set against the crisp white walls that usher you to enjoy the individuality of every room.
In summer, the light filled and spacious rooms of the guest quarters provides air flow and room to move, with each space opening effortlessly to verandahs where you can seek out your sunlit corner to inhabit with a glass of wine and let the hours slip away. In winter, the custom kitchen will have you roasting and toasting with a fine bottle of Hunter wine to your heart’s content whilst your guests lounge next to the open fire. With both bathrooms featuring a deep, shapely claw foot tubs, you’ll find every reason to soak and, linger longer.
