Welcome to Elmstead; the epitome of a country getaway.

Located 26 kilometres north of New England’s regional hub of Armidale, and a little less to the town of Guyra, Elmstead is a true highland escape. The 58-hectare property is set at over 1,100 metres above sea level, the 5 bedroom homestead looks over the rolling hills and toward the neighbouring ranges.

For over a kilometre, the Gara River runs along the give-and-take boundary, providing adventure for the outdoor-minded, as well as prized water security for grazing stock.

The rolling hills are studded with majestic granite boulders piercing the fine granite soils full of pasture.

The 5 bedroom homestead looks out across all of this. The large, elevated deck and inside living areas take full advantage of the magnificent ever-present vista.

There’s a modern country style kitchen, four living areas, 5 bedrooms an office and three bathrooms. Downstairs is a double garage and a large rumpus room.

The master bedroom has its own balcony while two others share theirs.

Windows are double glazed and while the floors are hardwood timber.

Outside, the garden takes full advantage of the view and a large elm, plus there’s also a tennis court and a vegetable garden.

Not so nearby, at the entrance to the property, is a 3 bedroom cottage with its own yard. This could be rented by a paying tenant or a care-taker.

Working infrastructure includes an old woolshed with an enclosed studio, a set of steel cattle yards and a solar array providing offset power supply.

When you’re at Elmstead you can’t help but feel removed from all the world, without being particularly isolated and definitely not missing out on the finer things provided by such a magnificent homestead.
