SOLD - PRIOR TO AUCTION

Dundee is an extended heritage cottage, set right back from the road on a large, leafy block. Completed circa 1856, it is regarded as one of Maitland's oldest surviving single storey residences.

Characterised by the very wide L shaped bullnose nosed verandah with plain chamfered posts across the symmetrical facade, this is a perfect example of local Georgian architecture at its best.

The solid brick construction is lime washed and has a steep pitched zincalume roof. The double hung four pane sash windows with timber shutters flanking the front door are in keeping with traditional Georgian presentation.

Inside, the aesthetics are more contemporary where the style is crisp, clean and versatile. A light white palette for the walls, architraves and high, painted timber ceilings along with polished timber floors make this home easy to decorate. It is literally a blank canvas.

The layout of the front part of the home is typical of this period, where three bedrooms and a bathroom are divided by a central hallway with a plaster arch midway.

All the bedrooms are generously sized with ceiling fans. Two have fireplaces converted to gas and two have carpeted floors with built-ins. The modern bathroom of similarly large proportion is presented in a period style. An extended vanity has abundant benchtop and storage space and a huge timber framed mirror visually enlarges the room even more. A claw foot bath with overhead shower are other additions to this extra spacious bathroom.

The open plan extension to the rear of the home is illuminated by natural light streaming in through multiple sets of French doors.

There is an emphasis on entertaining with a built-in bar opposite the central kitchen defined by a U shaped bench. Serve straight to guests or to the adjacent meals space where an open fireplace creates a warm and welcoming ambience. A split system air conditioner plus a gas combustion fireplace provide year round comfort to this large, open living space. Plus a second bathroom with separate toilet conveniently services guests.

A sculptural black, steel spiral staircase links to the attic/fourth bedroom. There is potential for an ensuite to be installed to make this a splendid parents retreat. Currently, french doors open onto a balcony, providing private outdoor space to relax. Facing the south-east, enjoy the leafy garden views comfortably anytime of the day.

Underneath, an alfresco area is partially protected by a verandah extending right across the back. Brick retaining walls divide the lower paved area from the level backyard lawns. A water feature in behind the retaining wall is a subtle statement adding a point of interest.

A separate garage is large enough to fit four vehicles and there is further secure off street parking along the driveway with a remote opening gate.

The pool in the front yard is screened by established gardens enhancing privacy. Surrounded by a timber deck and timber picket fence, it is almost completely obscured from the outside.

The enclosed block is fenced on all boundaries, making it perfect for families with pets.

Dundee enjoys an excellent location on a quiet, wide street. It is within walking distance to the local shopping village on Lawes Street, several schools, parks and transport options.

Victoria Street crosses the New England Highway for easy connectivity. It is approximately 5 minutes drive to Maitland CBD, Stockland Greenhills Shopping Centre and access to the M1 motorway, linking to Sydney in 2 hours.

This is a premium address with a home of equally impressive character and comfort.
