The main house directly overlooks the vineyard of Degen Wines and is set amongst manicured lawns, an established fruit orchard and native trees.  Perfect for entertaining, enjoy the wide paved verandahs, BBQ area and travertine pool terrace which leads to the stunning swimming pool.  On the western side, the inviting Summer House with its deep lounges and its’ own private deck is perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets. The living room features comfortable leather lounges and is perfect for relaxing with a book or watching your favourite film on the widescreen TV.  The fully equipped contemporary galley-style kitchen has European appliances, stone benchtops and everything you would need to cater for your large group.  The huge custom-made 4.5m long dining table dominates the room and brings everyone together making every meal a special occasion.

The accompanying self-contained cottages each have two bedrooms and feature luxury bedding, a modern bathroom, kitchen and open living space spilling out to an open verandah with BBQ and private views of the vineyards.

You will only be moments to surrounding vineyards and concert venues such as Bimbadgen Estate and Hope Estate, The Vintage Golf Resort and within five minutes of the Hunter Expressway.

Your first wine tasting of course is just a short walk away at the charming cellar door of Degen Wines.


Hillcrest House is a wonderful gem in the Hunter.  Set in an elevated location in the heart of Pokolbin's Wine Country, Hillcrest House is only moments to the major concert venues, many exquisite world class restaurants, wineries, spas and golf courses.  This picturesque property sits on 14 charming acres and enjoys delightful views of the Brokenback and Watagan ranges.  Featuring 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and accommodation for up to 7 guests, relax and enjoy this property in all seasons.  

Tastefully decorated with wooden parquetry flooring throughout, a roaring combustion fire, elegant dining room and modern kitchen, you'll feel right at home when you stretch out on the generous lounge with a magazine or laze the afternoon away with a delicious cheese platter over a good catch up with friends.  

For the warmer months, Hillcrest House has a sparkling in-ground pool with views of the rolling hills beyond, a generous covered outdoor entertaining area.  Pick some fresh herbs from the garden and cook up a bbq for you and your friends or simply enjoy sipping glass of fine Hunter wine whilst watching the Hunter sunsets. To ensure your comfort the property features three rooms (Lounge, Bed 1 and Bed 2) that are fully air-conditioned, and fans are installed throughout.
