Set in the rolling plains of North Rothbury, right in the heartland of the Hunter Valley wine region, the new boutique Huntlee Estate is a picture-perfect location. And the estate now features a brand-new and highly desirable family home on a spacious site.

In order to take full advantage of country-lifestyle rental market opportunities, our latest clients approached the team at Acrow Investments about building an investment property.

Through consultation we helped them develop a strong concept of luxurious and easy-care finishes. The result is a large open-plan layout to maximise the space, entice high-value tenants and ensure long-term profitability from this superb home.

Here’s the project overview.

Project description: A new home build, geared for appeal in the competitive, high-value country-lifestyle rental market.

Result: A quality open-plan four-bedroom family home that is ready to deliver a positive return on investment.

Project cost: $298,000 – including CDC approval and construction fees.

Build duration: 20 weeks.

Return on investment: Rental properties in the North Rothbury area are returning approximately $430 per week, with sales averaging $470,000!


The Hunter Valley is a picturesque location featuring gently undulating hills, world-renowned wineries, open farmland and drifts of trees. The best of upscale rural Australia, the Huntlee Estate will become the newest of the vibrant communities speckled throughout the desirable area.

With short-term plans for a complete urban hub – including a supermarket, medical centre, childcare and other amenities – the growing Huntlee Estate offers immense appeal.

Additionally, this modern community has good access to the M15 Hunter Expressway, this, in turn, connects the Hunter Valley to Newcastle and the M1-Sydney connection. Branxton Train Station is within 5 minutes and Newcastle Airport can be reached within 45 minutes by road.


Incorporating all the features you’d expect from a modern and functional home for a large family, this project is sure to have appeal to any prospective tenants.

A granny flat to boost rental returns – Killarney Vale, NSW

After inheriting a property in the lakeside suburb of Killarney Vale (Central Coast, NSW), the clients came to us looking to revitalise this holding and also maximise the income it could generate. After we sat with them to explore their hopes and discuss options, they settled on a plan to build a modern granny flat on the land. This would allow another income stream to be generated from the property, as well as improve its overall market value. Of course, granny flats are precisely what we do, so we were only too happy to help.
