A CHARMING TREE CHANGEIf you’re longing for a tree change then you’ll find this charming period home, on a tranquil 2 acre block in historic Seaham the perfect antidote.
Constructed in 1932 the home is packed with period features as well as offering scope to put your own stamp on things.
Surrounded by lush, established gardens, the property is largely flat, level land that slopes slightly down towards the rear of the block, which is filled with an array of fruit trees, and an abundance of Australian Natives such as eucalypts, grevillea and bottlebrush.
The weatherboard home is painted in hues typical of its era, with cream, grey and rich burgundy providing the perfect accent to the quaint front verandah, which is complete with a feature, leadlight and timber front door.
Indoors awaits a light-filled, spacious home that makes use of its very large rooms in a practical but smart way to complement family living.
Picture rails and timber architraves feature throughout the home, as do 10-foot high ceilings and sash windows.
The kitchen and dining room already have the original, 5-inch hardwood floorboards exposed, while the remainder of the home has them tucked away under carpet, just waiting for you to reveal and polish them if you choose.
In the spacious living room a lovely timber mantelpiece frames a slow combustion wood fireplace to create a focal point in the room, which has a light and peaceful ambience aided by the neutral two-tone colour scheme.
The kitchen has been opened up to connect to the dining room, which flows out through cedar-framed French doors to a covered deck.
The country-style kitchen is a highlight of the home with gleaming original floorboards, reclaimed Kauri timber cabinetry and a decorative antique Gibson Simplex cast iron wood-fuelled stove.
There’s also a modern, freestanding Chef electric stove, corner walk-in pantry and Chef dishwasher.
The dining room is ideal for formal and informal occasions while the alfresco area is perfect for dining outdoors, barbecues and just relaxing in the warm weather. It features hardwood decking, pine-lined ceiling with downlights and timber balustrading.
From its elevated position you can also take in the picturesque rural views which make you feel as though you’re a million miles from anywhere, even though the village centre is within a short walk and Maitland is just a 20-minute drive away.
The home features four large bedrooms, including the master at the front of the home with a cast iron fireplace and a timber mantelpiece.
The bathroom is a space where you can make your own mark with your own design and styling, but for the time being it is in good working order with a shower above the bath, vanity with good storage and mirrored medicine cabinet at eye level and a toilet.
Other features inside include ceiling fans in three bedrooms and the lounge room. Outside, a detached weatherboard single garage caters for your car or as a storage facility.
Children will love the timber cubby house, while green thumbs will appreciate the veggie garden with mesh fencing to keep any pets out.
Fruit trees are spread around the property including mandarins, grapefruit, fig, pear, lemon, orange, feijoa, plum and mulberry, while a herb garden, strawberry patch and vegetable garden will also impress.
The backyard is visited by a variety of wildlife including wallabies, bandicoots, king parrots, honeyeaters and a transient koala.
