Building your vineyard residence

With acreage land in the Residences precinct now selling, there’s never been a better time to understand the different ways you can bring your vision to life at Pokolbin Estate.

The Residences will be an exclusive precinct of vineyard residences, set within the Pokolbin Estate masterplan in close proximity to the cellar door and future hospitality precinct.  Zoned for tourism due to their unmatched location in the heart of Hunter Valley’s golden triangle, these residences are ideal as a second home or weekend getaway, a place to gather and share amongst family and friends, or even a short-term letting investment opportunity.

Land is currently selling and civil works are set to begin shortly, bringing savvy buyers one step closer to creating their ideal vineyard residence. Understand the process of how to buy…

Step 1. Select your preferred land size, home design and location

The land within the Residences ranges in size from 1.6 acres to more than 3 acres. Every block has been paired with one of four DA approved, architecturally designed home options – selected to complement each one’s unique features, outlook and access – so it’s important to consider your design preferences as part of the process of choosing your preferred lot.

This approach is in place due to changed planning controls in the region, which prevent new Development Approvals from being granted on land of this size. Establishing pre-approved home designs ensures each land lot is sold with appropriate approvals already in place, which buyers can use or modify as they see fit. It won’t prevent you from being able to make design changes or even build a custom home design if you so choose.

Step 2. Secure your block

Once you’ve selected your preferred block, our expert selling partners at Colliers will work with you to secure an upfront deposit of 10% of the land price, prior to the exchange of contracts on the land. Once contracts have been exchanged, you can commence the process of refining your design vision with your chosen builder partner.

Step 3. Choose your builder and select any modifications

Pokolbin Estate has partnered with esteemed NSW builders Montgomery Homes and Yarrum Designer Homes as our recommended builder partners for the Residences. Both builders have prepared tenders to give prospective buyers an indicative build price, as well as offering an exclusive suite of alternative design options.

You’re more than welcome to select another builder of your choice and commence the tender process with them from scratch to get an idea of their build price and available inclusions.  Once you’ve selected your builder, you’ll work with them directly to select your preferred finishes and make any amendments to the design, then engage in a separate contract with them for the construction of the home.

Step 3a. Design a custom home

If you have a different design vision for your residence, you can work with your chosen partner to create a custom design, provided it meets Pokolbin Estate’s design guidelines and you obtain consent from DevCore, the project developer and landowner. You can then apply for a Modification of Consent on the existing development approval to secure Council approval.

Step 4. Land registration and beyond

Once the land is registered – currently expected early 2025 – you’ll be able to settle on the land and then start building your vineyard residence. There are no time restrictions on when or if you must commence construction, so you can operate at your own pace as your vision becomes reality.
