The relaxed lifestyle of the Hunter Valley’s “wine country” is proving a big drawcard to Sydney-siders looking for a hill change.

The Hunter Valley has been pinpointed by Hotspotting as a top regional hotspot, with increased employment opportunities, strengthening property market activity and significantly lower vacancy rates.

Improved accessibility, relaxed lifestyle and affordability have contributed to a 20% growth in property sales. Families are looking to find an exceptional place to call home in areas like the new Mount View Grange estate in Bellbird. They are drawn in by the beauty, space and crisp country air, with a dramatically lower price tag than a Sydney home or unit. This is reflected in the double-digit growth of surrounding towns of Cessnock, East Maitland, and Kurri Kurri.

There are extensive local job opportunities in the Hunter Valley, with the region’s economic growth projected to be significantly higher than the state average. The diverse economy is Australia’s largest and boasts a mix of agriculture, mining, tourism, manufacturing and power generation.

Alternatively, Mount View Grange residents can easily commute to Newcastle and the Central Coast via the Hunter Expressway, with access set to improve further with the planned upgrades to the M1. This will include work to the intersection at Weakleys Drive and John Renshaw Drive near Beresfield.

Others are taking advantage of the increased flexibility of working conditions to work remotely while they soak up the views and get to know the local residents.

“The rural Hunter has great people with real Aussie characters, community spirit, proximity to necessary services, schools, fine food, historic sites both indigenous and colonial, awe inspiring Australian animal life, great boutique wineries and a couple of unique watering holes.”

Life at Mount View Grange means rural community, simplicity, and sustainability. You can choose from blocks from 600sqm to 850sqm. We have collaborated with leading builders to design tailor-made house and land packages that maximise the possibilities of each fully serviced block of land. Alternatively, you can choose your own builder to create your vision.
