If you can tear yourself away from this beautiful property, your choices are endless starting with Jimmy Jones across the road, closely followed by Saltire Estate, Adina, Mockingbird Café, Gartleman wines, Allandale and Capercaillie Wines, Lillinos Italian, Stomp Wines, Leaves & Fishes and The Deck Café. Guests will enjoy only a short drive to Hunter Valley Gardens and moments from concert venues such as Bimbadgen, Hope and Roche Estates, as well as wedding venues such as Wandin Valley, Petersons, Moravia Park, Dark Horse, and the Lovedale Chapel. 
We must admit, you will find it hard to leave Wilderness Grove as this property everything you need for a joyous stay with family and friends. Everything has been catered for to make you feel right at home. The Hamptons inspired main residence is flanked on most sides by open vine-covered decks and second-storey balconies. Plantings of iceberg roses and clipped hedges lead you to the front door and inside mirror finish floorboards, high ceilings and light-filled living spaces. A grand open lounge complete with wood-burning fireplace is the heart of the home and it opens on one side to an outdoor living area and on the other to a combined dining and brand-new shaker-style kitchen.  A guest powder room, laundry and huge en-suited bedroom complete the ground floor.

Upstairs are another three huge bedrooms all with ensuites and French doors opening to private balconies with views overlooking the gardens and surrounding olive grove and mountains beyond. Please note the combustion fireplaces in the bedrooms are not operational, however the entire main house is heated and cooled by multiple multiple reverse-cycle air-conditioners, with an air conditioner in each bedroom and one provided in the main living area. Outside, an inviting swimming pool is wrapped in travertine paving and beautifully landscaped with a water feature. Near the main house is also a separate games room with a pool table, fridge for guest refreshments, and a large TV with Kayo sport and streaming apps available for guest login, as well as a firepit just steps away so you can swap stories and relax under the stars. Sonos Sound Systems are installed in the Main House and the games room.

The 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom guest cottage is a short drive from the main house, set along a private road among an established kitchen-style fruit orchard and offers private peaceful views over the surrounding countryside. Ceiling fans are provided for guest comfort in each bedroom in the cottage, with a reverse cycle air conditioner provided in the cottage's living area.
