More value than you can imagine

There's nothing quite like the grandeur, luxury and convenience of this hidden East Maitland oasis, which offers so much more than you'd ever imagine right in the heart of the blue ribbon suburb.

A stunning, stately home concealed behind manicured hedges that make you feel a world away from its bustling location as soon as you walk through the front door, this property offers peace and privacy alongside its prime location.

Centrally positioned within minutes of East Maitland's lively café districts, the home offers a walkable lifestyle where you can enjoy coffee with friends on Melbourne Street before wandering through the surrounding antique stores and art gallery, or head up the Lawes Street precinct, where charming boutiques and gourmet cafes sit side by side with a range of commercial businesses.

The suburb's recreational attractions are also with easy reach, with the landscaped grounds of King Edward Park located just across the road next to the top-class bowling greens, popular dining options and modern facilities of East Maitland Bowling Club, while the pristine fairways and greens of the 18-hole Maitland Golf Club are just a few minutes down the road.

Families will love the home's proximity to a range of parks and sports fields, as well as the East Maitland Aquatic Centre, while the nearby Stockade Hill Heritage Park offers an expansive nature reserve within walking distance, with plenty of open space for children or dogs to play, as well as a shaded playground area, ample grassed areas for picnics and a charming heritage rotunda.

Parents will also enjoy the convenience of having a childcare centre and both Catholic and public primary schools within walking distance, while two public high schools and the prestigious Hunter Valley Grammar School are also within a few minutes' drive.

Less than 2km east at the top of the hill you'll find all your essentials and so much more at the major regional entertaining and shopping hub of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre, with a large mix of major and minor retail outlets anchored by a David Jones department store and HOYTS cinema complex.

The centrally-located property is also a short drive from the revitalised Maitland city centre and the historic charm of Morpeth, with its cobblestone laneways, boutique shops and charming cafes, while the regional attractions of Pokolbin, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie are within a 35-minute radius.

But there's so much more to this magnificent fully renovate property than just its location, from its glamorous interior and gorgeous heritage detailing to the amazing decked-out entertaining space, indoor swimming pool, open air alfresco areas and extensive landscaped gardens.

Set on a 1647sqm block in the heart of the suburb, the tightly-held 95-year-old home has been extended and renovated over the years, with the meticulous updates ensuring it has retained its original character and period features including exquisite cathedral glass leadlight windows, intricate ceiling roses and panelling, high coffered ceilings and stunning chandeliers.

The home's extended layout is ideal for modern families, with the expansive open plan living spaces providing ideal entertaining options at the rear of the design, while the five bedrooms are grouped together at the front of the home with an additional formal living space for added peace and privacy.

One of the true highlights of the home is its stunning gourmet kitchen, which is more than double in size compared to the previous offering, with the functional elements including quality stainless steel appliances and a large preparation area tucked away in an open butler's pantry style configuration at the semi-enclosed end.

An impressive 3.2m long bench featuring sleek 30mm stone benchtops and breakfast bar seating extends the kitchen into the living space, while classic shaker-profile cabinetry provides an abundance of storage.

The open plan kitchen and living room have uninterrupted views through louvred glass windows to the adjoining indoor swimming pool, allow
ing parents to relax in comfort while still keeping an eye on the kids.

With a depth of more than six feet and a heat pump to keep the magnesium mineral pool water comfortable all year round, the concrete swimming pool provides resort-style living that is sure to appeal to all members of the family.

Generous proportions ensure the home's five bedrooms feel luxuriously large and inviting, with a king-sized master suite offering a true parents' retreat with space for its own sitting area. The enormous walk-in wardrobe and dressing room down the hallway was converted from a standard-sized bedroom and has been fitted out with shelving and hanging space.

Following a complete renovation, the master ensuite has become a haven of period style with a regal-looking clawfoot bath, traditional pedestal vanity and stunning heritage floor tiles, complemented by the opulent walk-in shower recess with twin gooseneck showerheads and classic white subway splashback tiles.

The main two-way bathroom has been luxuriously finished in a five-star style including floor-to-ceiling tiling, a built-in shower over bath design and two separate vanities with plenty of storage, while a window and skylight ensure the space feels light, bright and inviting.

A spectacular entertainment space created in the former detached double garage provides the icing on the cake for this true entertainer's home, with its luxurious finish and long list of inclusions ensuring it lives up to its nickname of "The Palace".

From the stacked stone surrounds of the electric fireplace to the rattan pendant light fitting, black aluminium shutters and timber-look ceiling fans, "The Palace" provides a stylish and comfortable space to enjoy all year round, while a well-appointed gourmet kitchen complete with 30mm timber benchtops, laminate cabinetry and Westinghouse electric wall oven caters for all your alfresco cooking and dining needs.
