Whether you are looking for a luxurious country home for your family holiday, large group of friends, wedding destination or a corporate vine stay experience, Degen Estate will delight you and your guests.

Located high above the surrounding vineyards with sweeping views across the Brokenback Range, the 54 acre estate of Degen Wines is privately set in the beating heart of the Hunter Valley wine country.

Degen Estate features designer interiors throughout the large open-plan house, with five bedrooms as well as two self-contained cottages, each with two bedrooms. The Estate offers 9 spacious bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms comfortably accommodating up to 20 guests.

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 that has won three industry awards for 2017.  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 bench-tops and everything you would need to cater for your large group. The huge custom-made 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, Roche and Hope Estates, The Vintage Golf Resort and within five minutes of the Hunter Valley Gardens and The Hunter Expressway.
