Set in the sought-after suburb of East Maitland amongst other homes of this era, this three-bedroom gem is perfect for a family home or investment.

Built in approximately 1926 on a 670sqm block and updated over the years, the single storey home offers plenty of potential.

Combining three bedrooms and three living spaces with a spacious outdoor entertaining area and good-sized yard, the home is deceptively large, making it ideal for growing families.

Established gardens including a large frangipani tree soften the facade of the weatherboard and Colorbond home, which has been set back from the street on a wide expanse of manicured lawn.

A steel and Colorbond carport provides undercover off-street parking for a single car, while a second vehicle could easily fit behind it on the concrete driveway. The property also includes a garden shed and lawn locker in the backyard.

The house has been arranged in two distinct sections, with the three bedrooms at the front adjacent to a good-sized lounge room, while multiple living areas, (the kitchen, bathroom and laundry) are at the rear.

The three bedrooms all include built-in wardrobes, while the front two also feature attached sunrooms, which are versatile spaces that could be used as a study, reading area or even walk-in dressing room.

The biggest surprise package in the home though is its abundance of living areas, with a lounge room, sitting room and family room, as well as a dining room opposite the kitchen.

The family room was added to the original house and features an expanse of windows in every wall, as well as New Guinea rosewood and glass French doors, which connect it to the sitting room. Two external doors lead from this space to the 5m x 5m undercover area with privacy screen, providing additional space for entertaining family and friends whatever the weather.

The functional kitchen combines practicality and preparation space, with laminate return benchtops, a breakfast bar, corner step-in pantry and servery window out to the sitting room. Timber-look vinyl provides hard-wearing and practical flooring in the open plan kitchen and dining room, while tiles create a seamless connection between the sitting and family rooms.

The recently renovated bathroom features a modern vanity with a moulded basin, a frameless shower screen, recessed wall niche and double adjustable shower, as well as three-quarter height large wall tiles.

A separate toilet is located next to the laundry, while a large linen cupboard provides additional storage options nearby.

A scattering of period features, including decorative fretwork in the hall, gives the home an abundance of character and a homely feel.

Ideal for those looking to get onto the property ladder for the first time, or investors looking for a good rental return in one of the fastest growing regions in NSW, this house is centrally located on the high side of East Maitland. It is situated within walking distance of the expanded Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre, which is now a major regional shopping and entertainment destination. The property is close to quality schools, medical facilities and sportsgrounds, with the wide expanse of parkland at the nearby Stockade Hill Heritage Park a great place to kick a football or walk the dog.
