The Hacienda Tenterfield

A truly elegant old world hacienda
Evoking a stately Spanish homestead, the Hacienda surpasses its name with a rustic elegance that recalls the large, timeless rancho estates of old Mexico.Welcome to Hacienda Tenterfield''s rustic elegance

Only twenty minutes from Tenterfield in northern NSW the sheer sweep of this 650 acre property conveys a sense of wide open spaces and big sky country with palms, agaves, flowering cacti and gardens stretching out to several dams and a large lake with two charming guest cottages and trails leading to paddocks and stands of pine forest.

The beautiful main house was a labour of love for the owner, who also built Paul Hogan’s Possum Creek home and Byron Bay’s iconic Beach Hotel, and in true hacienda style features a central courtyard surrounded by the sumptuous main residence whose spacious old world kitchen with heavy timbers and tiles blend magnificently with the adobe style walls and thick beams of the dining and lounge areas.

Hacienda Tenterfield - authentic old world charm
Stretching around the courtyard are the main bedrooms and bath and a separate guest wing with a self-contained apartment, all with large open fireplaces that seem to flow up to the rich timber ceilings.

A two car garage, multipurpose games room,  stable and store rooms are also surrounded by ornamental exotic gardens and a large established vegetable garden with underground irrigation throughout supplies this self-sustaining rancho deluxe.

Aerial view of the Hacienda luxury homesteadWhile feeling like a world unto itself, the Hacienda is only a three and a half hour drive from Byron Bay, four hours from Brisbane, or a short helicopter hop from the coast, with one of the flat paddocks particularly suitable for an airstrip.

This is a unique, colourfully Spanish homestead that is truly exceptional and is available for inspection by appointment with Nicolette on 0411 144 877 or +61 2 6684 8266 or by email at
