Fall in love with this pleasantly presented Lawes Street home, conveniently located within walking distance of East Maitlands boutiques, cafes and sporting facilities.

With period charm and a host of original features, this gorgeous home oozes character and kerb appeal.

Positioned on a low maintenance 708.2sqm block, the home features three generously-sized bedrooms typical of this era of construction.

Established gardens, climbing vines and a white timber rose arbour create a natural screen for the front of the home, adding an element of privacy to the covered porch and sitting area.

Brick columns and timber fretwork frame the front of the house, while gorgeous leadlight windows and leadlight panels in the solid timber front door provide the first hint of the period features to be found throughout the rest of the home.

Ten foot ceilings add a sense of grandeur to the rooms, while high picture rails and skirting boards, decorative cornices, patterned ceiling panels and Federation style timber fretwork in the hallway provide elegant reference points to an earlier time.

The house is split down the middle by a central hallway, with two bedrooms on the right and a bedroom and spacious living area on the left.

The hall leads through to the large open plan dining room and cosy adjoining sunroom, which are seamlessly connected with traditional slate flooring.

A renovated kitchen is located to the right of the dining room and features modern styling, with gloss white cabinetry, a light grey laminated benchtop, stainless steel Fisher & Paykel electric oven and cooktop and an on-trend white subway tile splashback.

Timber laminate floorboards add a sense of warmth to the kitchen that contrasts nicely with the white cabinetry, with timber also used for the flooring in the hallway, main bathroom, living room and one of the bedrooms.

The remaining two bedrooms feature carpet on the floors, while the combined laundry and second bathroom space at the rear of the home is tiled.

An open fireplace in one of the bedrooms and the lounge room add a heritage touch to these spaces, while the addition of ceiling fans, wall heaters and reverse-cycle air conditioners in a number of rooms ensure the home is comfortable all year round.

A small screened room off the back of the house is the ideal place to sit and relax out of the elements while enjoying the winter sun, however a covered alfresco space attached to the rear garage provides a larger area for outdoor entertaining.

The double garage has been converted to provide additional living space, with a small ensuite bathroom and kitchenette making it the ideal option for extended family or as a teenagers retreat.

Car accommodation is provided towards the front of the block, with a covered carport that is long enough to fit two cars end to end.

Small gates at either side of the house ensure the backyard is both pet and child friendly, while a greenhouse, tool shed and workshop located at the rear of the block provide ample storage space.

Ideal for a young family or retirees looking to downsize, this charming home is located within easy reach of East Maitlands amenities while being just a short drive from Maitlands revitalised CBD, Morpeths heritage charm and the bustling Stockland Green Hills shopping centre.
