With the opening or the new Hunter Express way, DenMar Estate is now more accessible and some 20 minutes less travel time from Newcastle, Central Coast and Sydney. Instead of taking the Cessnock/Kurri Kurri turn off on the Freeway keep on the Freeway until you reach the Wallsend Interchange and follow the signs to the Hunter Expressway, once on the Expressway travel to the very end where it meets up with the New England Highway and turn left towards Singleton and Muswellbrook, Hermitage Road is approx. 3.5kms along on the left hand side and DenMar Estate is almost 5kms along Hermitage Road on the left hand side.

Energy efficient; all DenMar Estate buildings are built to the latest NSW BASIX Energy Efficiency rating which includes R.2 external wall insulation, 55mm roof sarking and roof insulation to R3.5, solar/electric water heaters, plus all internal walls have sound screen insulation to provide additional privacy for our guests.
We have three large concrete in-ground water tanks for our domestic water supply each is fitted with a 'first flush system' plus inline filters for safe drinking water plus 3 dams, which are used to irrigate our vines and landscaping. Apart from the Casuarina trees along the creek line and some scattered gum trees, there were few trees on the property at the time of purchase. By the time our landscaping program is finished we will have planted several hundred new trees and shrubs with the majority of them being Australian natives. The new plantings should compensate for any greenhouse emissions resulting from the new buildings.
