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.
