With a fantastic 689sqm block and a prime East Maitland position, this property offers plenty of potential.

Built in the 1960s and in need of a little TLC to bring it back to its best, this three-bedroom home would be an ideal renovation project for someone looking to get into the property market, or house flippers looking to capitalise on its potential value.

The low maintenance home is well laid-out, with three bedrooms and a bathroom on one size and an open plan living space including a lounge room and dining room on the other, leading into the galley kitchen at the rear.

A separate laundry and toilet are also located to the rear of the home, accessible via the back patio area and internally via one of the bedrooms for added convenience.

Higher ceilings and large windows ensure the home feels bright and spacious, with plenty of natural light flooding into the rooms.

Externally, the expansive back yard is fully fenced, and has a large, non-compliant concrete swimming pool, while a long concrete driveway provides access from the street down one side of the house and through to the rear yard through a secure side gate.

Investors looking to make the most of the size of the block could explore its development potential, with the opportunity to significantly increase your return through a dual occupancy (subject to council approval).

Location is one of the major drawcards of this property, with its position on the high side of East Maitland ensuring it is perfectly situated to take advantage of the suburb's main attractions, with Stockland Green Hills shopping centre a short 500m walk away.

Recent renovations have transformed this shopping centre into a regionally significant retail and entertainment destination, with a wide variety of supermarkets, boutiques, national chains and major department stores, anchored by major retailers such as David Jones and H&M, as well as a seven screen Hoyts cinema.

The surrounding commercial precinct is home to a wide variety of professional businesses, retail outlets, medical practices and allied health professionals including a large private hospital, while a new regional hospital complete with a state-of-the-art emergency department and specialist facilities is under construction in the neighbouring suburb of Metford.

The wider East Maitland area has a number of other commercial precincts, with the busy Lawes Street and Melbourne Street shopping strips home to a mix of boutique shops, professional businesses and eateries, while the revitalised riverside city centre in Maitland is less than 10 minutes' drive.

East Maitland's appeal extends to a range of demographics, with families attracted to the wide range of public, Catholic and private schools within the surrounding suburbs, and the local parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities nearby, while retirees and empty nesters will love the suburb's relaxed café lifestyle, heritage attractions, social and recreational opportunities including a local bowling club and 18-hole golf course, and the easy access to the wider Hunter region.

Regional transport links including the Hunter Expressway and John Renshaw Drive put Newcastle, the Hunter Valley vineyards and Upper Hunter within a 40-minute radius, while the University of Newcastle, John Hunter Hospital and the Newcastle Airport are around 30 minutes away.
