It's not often an original Pettit + Sevitt built home with so few alterations comes onto the market, making this stunning example of 1970s cutting edge architecture a rare real estate gem.

The distinctive Bolwarra Heights property is one of only around 3500 homes constructed during the 1960s and '70s by the renowned building company, which is credited with pioneering architect-designed homes.

Created with the philosophy of providing a simple, functional and affordable home that uses space cleverly, the Lowline B design by Pettit + Sevitt architect Ken Woolley incorporates simple lines, 'natural' features and an emphasis on functionalism, with bedrooms to one side of the home and living, dining and kitchen to the other.

The home features many of the elements that made Pettit + Sevitt unique at the time, including the way the home nestles into its bushland block, and the use of exposed timbers, natural light, zoning of internal spaces with minimal corridors, introduction of ensuites, and the iconic flat roof.

Set back on the block and screened from the road by tall stands of trees, the tranquil home offers picturesque bushland views from every aspect, with an abundance of glass windows and doors flooding the home with natural light to create a bright and airy ambience.

Higher ceilings enhance the sense of spaciousness throughout, while the rich natural textures of the sandstock bricks, cedar paneling and exposed Oregon beams provide the home with a distinctive facade and series of striking internal features.

Additional timber elements, including the stunning floorboards, built-in library shelving in the dining room, benchtop edging in the kitchen and floating vanity in the ensuite, add warmth and character to the home.

The entry foyer leads directly into the main living area, an expansive carpeted space with plenty of room for entertaining family or friends, with exposed brick walls, timber beams and vintage-style pendant lights for added interest.

An oversized floor-to-ceiling glass sliding door and window panels provide a seamless connection between this space and the screened outdoor room to the rear of the house, which can be opened up for versatile entertaining options, while timber slats on the far side of the outdoor room provide glimpses of the surrounding bushland greenery.

A double entryway provides access to the adjoining kitchen and dining room, which features a modern open plan design that has stood the test of time.

Featuring plenty of bench space including a large breakfast bar, the functional u-shaped kitchen has a cool, retro vibe that fits perfectly with the style of the home, with soft green laminate benchtops, timber trims and door handles that stylistically connect with the stunning bushland landscape perfectly framed by the wall of glass windows over the sink.

The kitchen overlooks the adjoining dining room, a warm and welcoming space with rich cedar wall paneling, while a timber and glass door provides a second entrance to the rear screened entertaining room.

The home's single hallway leads to the three bedrooms, which all feature double-door built-in wardrobes, exposed Oregon beams and blockout curtains to the windows.

The master suite has an additional triple-door built-in wardrobe as well as is own private ensuite, while the main family bathroom can be accessed via the hallway and features floor-to-ceiling wall tiles as well as vintage mosaic-patterned tiles on the floor.

A good-sized laundry completes the internal accommodation, while a massive separate studio, made from the same sandstock bricks as the main home, offers a versatile area that could easily be connected to the house with some reconstruction work to provide additional living or bedroom space.

The property also features a large double car carport with additional height for taller vehicles and an external carport storage room.

Set on a picturesque bushland block with a variety of cleared and wooded areas, this tranquil and unique property offers plenty of appeal for those looking for a rural-style retreat, while its central Bolwarra Heights location keeps it close to the attractions and amenities on offer in Maitland's bustling city centre and Stockland Green Hills shopping centre.
