Looking for a property you can put your own stamp on? With a charming kerb appeal and prime position, this 1950s East Maitland bungalow offers plenty of options for first home buyers, young families or downsizers.

The two-bedroom home has a compact, traditional layout, with two bedrooms at the front and the eat-in kitchen and lounge room to the rear.

The bedrooms are both generously-proportioned and include ceiling fans and built-in wardrobes with mirrored doors, offering plenty of space for a queen-sized setting and small sitting or study area.

The bedrooms are located on either side of the central hallway, which leads from the front door through to the lounge room at the rear. The hallway also provides access to a bathroom and linen cupboard, which offers all the essential amenities but has the ability to be renovated and extended to create a luxurious, modern space.

At the rear of the home the lounge room is spacious and full of character, from the exposed brick fireplace (non-working) to the dado boards and picture rails. High ceilings and neutral colour tones all to the ambience of the room, which feels bright and homely and would provide the perfect space to relax with friends and family.

An additional living space has been added to the rear at some stage since the original home was built in the 1950s, with the sunroom offering an elongated area to create a second lounge room, sitting room or study. The sunroom provides access to a second toilet, as well as the good-sized laundry, which features the homes original cast iron cooker.

A second door in the laundry leads directly into the eat-in kitchen, which is ripe for re-design and renovation.

Long banks of timber-look cabinetry run along two walls of the kitchen, joining at one corner with a built-in wall-mounted electric oven and grill.

A wood burner stove and oven (non-operational) on the adjacent wall adds another touch of original character, while the large open space in the centre of the room provides plenty of area for a dining table.

With lovely period features sprinkled throughout and the original timber floorboards offering warmth and texture, the interior of this home offers a blank canvas for homeowners to take it to the next level with a cosmetic facelift or full renovation.

Outside, the property features a detached single garage, while the low maintenance back yard ensures downsizers wont need to spend all their spare time in the garden.

Located in the heart of East Maitland, the property is ideally situated to make the most of the suburbs attractions.

The shopping and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre is within walking distance of the property, while local recreational facilities and open parkland can also be reached on foot or via a short drive in the car.

Young families will love its proximity to a local daycare and playgrounds, while two primary schools are just a minutes drive away across the other side of the New England Highway.

The propertys close access to major regional transport links including the Hunter Expressway and M1 Motorway also provides easy connectivity for the Hunters key attractions including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the vineyards, while the revitalised city centre of Maitland is less than five minutes drive.
