Original features add plenty of character to this charming East Maitland cottage, which combines vintage appeal with an attractive makeover that has rejuvenated this low maintenance property.

Located in the blue ribbon suburb of East Maitland, this property occupies a prime position within walking distance of the cafes and boutiques on Lawes Street, the greens and fairways of Easts Leisure and Golf Club and the convenience of the local train station.

However, there's much more to this home than its ideal location, with its myriad of original features adding elegance to its interior, while the recent renovations have left it feeling refreshed and ready for a new owner to enjoy.

The home's traditional appeal begins from the first moment you lay eyes on it, with a classic white picket fence setting the scene for the period elements within.

A charming bullnose verandah with timber decking provides a quaint spot to sit and enjoy a cuppa, while landscaped cottage gardens give the property a lovely touch of green.

The weatherboard home's exterior cladding has been freshly repainted in a lovely white and grey colour palette, with the detached weatherboard garage featuring a matching finish.

The home's interior has also been recently painted in warm neutral tones, which make every room seem bright and cosy while also complementing the abundance of timber accents including the original floorboards in the entry hall, living room and kitchen.

Period-style features can be found throughout the home, from the ornate cornices in the bedrooms and wainscotting in the hallway to the vintage pendant lights, timber sash windows, charming French doors and high timber skirting.

A lovely Heatmaster gas fireplace complete with brick surround ensures the living room feels cosy and inviting, with the French door creating a connection between this space and the covered front verandah.

The original Simplex oven, tiled hearth and timber mantel have been retained as an eye-catching antique focal point in the lovely eat-in kitchen, although this space also includes a four-burner gas cooktop and electric oven for practicality.

Timber cabinetry and stone-look laminate benchtops give the kitchen a cute country-style appeal with plenty of storage and preparation space, with the added bonus of a concealed walk-in pantry complete with floor-to-ceiling shelving.

The home also features three good-sized bedrooms, which have a plush, cosy feel underfoot thanks to newly installed carpet, while split-system air conditioners or ceiling fans ensure they provide a comfortable space to relax and sleep.

A compact laundry leading through to the neat and tidy bathroom complete the home's internal accommodation.

A spacious alfresco area at the rear of the home provides additional living and entertaining options, with both covered and open-air spaces, timber decking and concrete pavers, as well as a TRU-Infrared Char-Broil gas barbecue.

This space has been cleverly designed to provide a private entertaining area, with screening on top of a high garden-topped retaining wall concealing it from the neighbouring properties at the rear. Convenient bench seating has also been built into this space, while established trees and plants provide a soft, natural contrast to these hard textures.

Offering a lovely low maintenance lifestyle with plenty of beautiful features inside and out, this wonderful East Maitland property would be ideal for downsizers or retirees, while young families and couples will love its proximity to surrounding amenities including schools, recreational facilities, historic pubs, gourmet cafes and restaurants.

The retail and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre is just a five minute drive up the New England Highway, with the surrounding business precinct offering a diverse mix of professional and essential services as well as community facilities including a large library.

East Maitland's thriving health services precinct will cater for all your medical needs, with a range of allied health professionals, doctors, specialists and a large private hospital, while the new regional Maitland hospital is currently under construction in the nearby suburb of Metford.
