Heritage charm in key position

A seamless blend of old and new gives this lovely East Maitland home heritage character with modern appeal.

Built on a brick foundation, the weatherboard and Colorbond roof home has plenty of cottage charm for an instant good first impression thanks to its traditional colour palette, timber sash windows and raised verandah with brick columns and decorative timber balustrade.

Buyers who love period details won't be disappointed, with the home's heritage appeal evident as soon as you walk in the front door, from the lovely, detailed fretwork in the hallway to the ornate art deco style ceiling rose in the master bedroom.

High ceilings, decorative cornices, picture rails and dado paneling in various rooms add to the vintage feel, while the rich, deep tones of the original timber floorboards enhance the interior's authentic feel.

The home features three spacious bedrooms with updated carpet for cosy comfort underfoot, while a black ceiling fan in the master suite provides a dramatic contemporary touch to this space.

The master ensuite has been partially renovated and features a large spa bath, an abundance of linen cupboards and the lovely touch of an original stained glass window.

The second bedroom is located across the hall and features the convenience of a study nook with overhead storage, while traditional features including sash widows, picture rails, a pendant light and decorative cornices complement the home's period aesthetic.

A similarly styled third bedroom is positioned further down the hall and has the added benefit of built-in wardrobes as well as overhead storage.
The well-designed home also features two living areas, with a lovely sitting room offering a cosy space to curl up with a good book or watch some TV surrounded by heritage charm, with another stunning ceiling rose and a traditional cast iron fireplace surrounded by a turned timber mantlepiece, which provides a pleasing focal point that adds to the aesthetic.

A second, much larger living space has been added via a fantastic extension to the rear of the home that seamlessly blends with the original property through sympathetic features and styling, while timber and glass bifold doors allow you to close off this area from the bedrooms at the front of the home.
Timber-look flooring in this space echoes the warmth and texture of the original floorboards, while a servery window creates a visual connection between the living room and the original kitchen.

The country-style kitchen retains much of its original character with its dark timber cabinetry, however tasteful additions have also helped update the space for a modern lifestyle, including a new Westinghouse oven that has been installed into the recess where the original oven once stood.

A contemporary-feeling bathroom and a good-sized laundry with an impressive amount of built-in storage space complete the internal accommodation, while outside a rear covered alfresco area provides the perfect space for entertaining overlooking the lush, established gardens and manicured lawn.

The property also features a double carport and a single garage, while two large rooms attached to the garage provide versatile additional space that could be utilised as a teenager's retreat, adjoining home offices or consulting rooms for a home-based business (subject to council approval).

Located on a lovely wide street in a prime elevated position, the East Maitland property is within walking distance of large local sporting fields and a nature reserve, and just over 1km away from the major regional shopping destination of Stockland Green Hills and its surrounding business and healthcare precincts.
Proximity to the New England Highway provides easy access to all the local East Maitland amenities as well as the revitalised Maitland city centre, while the attractions of Newcastle, the vineyards and Lake Macquarie are just a short drive away.
