Mixing period features with modern conveniences, this lovely East Maitland home exudes a warm, inviting ambience that is easy to appreciate.

A white picket fence and flourishing cottage gardens give this property instant street appeal, while original features and period details provide lashings of character within.

The four bedroom cottage was built in the 1920s and has been beautifully restored, with well maintained weatherboard cladding in subtle shades of grey and white highlighting the charming traditional façade.

A strong sense of the period continues inside, where the rich tones of the original polished timber floorboards add texture and warmth throughout, while higher detailed ceilings, decorative fretwork and dado rails have been retained in a lovely nod to the era.

Ideally designed for families, the home features a cosy living room at the front, with access to an adjoining study overlooking the front yard that would make the ideal kids' homework space.

Two of the home's four bedrooms are accessible from the front living room, with a sliding door closing this space off from the rest of the house for a peaceful atmosphere when the youngest members of the family go to bed.

A fourth bedroom is located towards the rear of the home opposite the master suite, making it ideal for a guest bedroom or quiet home office for those who don't require the additional accommodation.

All four bedrooms are fitted with ceiling fans and are generously proportioned, with room to include an occasional chair alongside the bedroom setting for a private relaxation space.

Built-in wardrobes, plush carpet and both sheer and blockout blinds provide the finishing touches, while a mixture of ceiling fans and split system air conditioning units provide climate control in the bedrooms.

The front living room and a second split level living space at the rear of the home also benefit from split system air conditioning.

The second living space is a bright and inviting area with plenty of large windows and glass sliding doors. All living spaces include gas outlets and antenna points for added convenience.

Tiled floors provide a practical and attractive option for this versatile space, which has plenty of room for a lounge setting where the family can sit and watch TV together, as well as a dining space with an enviable view of the lush green garden to the rear.

A stylish entertainer's kitchen is situated at the heart of this home, with breakfast bar seating on the island bench providing a handy space for casual meals or an afternoon snack.

A classic black and cream colour scheme adds to the home's traditional feel, while sleek subway tiling gives a modern touch to the updated splashback.

The home's main bathroom has also been given a makeover while still retaining a traditional feel, with classic black and white floor tiles and feature subway tiling, while a mirrored door medicine cabinet over the freestanding vanity add a more contemporary touch.

The black and white colour scheme is echoed in the master ensuite, where floor-to-ceiling tiling adds a look of luxury to the finish.

The property's charm and instant appeal continues outside with flourishing trees and shrubs, rock-bordered gardens and a stepping stone pathway set off by a neatly manicured patch of lawn.

A vine-covered gazebo provides an added touch of character where you can relax with an outdoor lounge setting or make the most of the concrete slab base and external power supply to add an outdoor spa to the space for a private and relaxing retreat.

Double gates provide secure side access to the large detached double garage with remote access at the rear of the low maintenance 537.5sqm corner block.

Ideally located in the sought-after suburb of East Maitland in close proximity to the village shops and new hospital, the property is well positioned with proximity to public transport, local sporting fields and schools, while the retail and entertainment destination of Stockland Green Hills shopping centre is just three minutes' drive away.
