Holiday at home: Five prestige properties with room for the whole family

Relaxed country vibes meet modern luxury in this expansive listing located just outside Port Macquarie.

Listing agent Lachlan Mitchell of hem said that the property was built four years ago for the current owners and was designed by a local architect.

"It was built by the current owners as their dream home but they are constantly moving," Mr Mitchell said, describing it as "probably one of the most beautiful homes I've ever listed".

The property is around nine kilometres from the centre of Port Macquarie and is located on an "exclusive street of big properties".

Positioned on a half acre block, the property features five bedrooms (including separate studio accommodation) a cinema room and stone fireplace.

The property would likely sell to a family, with Mr Mitchell having fielded enquiries from local and out-of-town buyers.

"We sell the majority of properties in Port Macquarie and I can honestly say I've never seen more calls for a property," he said.
