From the timeless appeal of the traditional facade to the contemporary style of the full internal renovation, this stunning Lorn property combines the best of both worlds.

A classic white picket fence and rustic brick path set the scene for this charming historic cottage, which has been completely repainted outside with a traditional monochromatic colour scheme.

Similar tones of charcoal, white and soft grey have been carried throughout the interior design to create a snug, intimate ambience, while beautiful timber floors add a richly textured element to the living areas.

The success of the homes stunning renovation lies in its ability to sympathetically meld period features with contemporary elements.

Detailed cornices, tall skirting boards, high ceilings and the marble tiled hearth around the wood-burning fireplace pay homage to the era, while premium inclusions such as the 20mm stone benchtops, white plantation shutters, stainless steel appliances and ducted air conditioning provide a high end finish to the home.

Exposed bricks in the main bathroom add a rustic counterpoint in the luxuriously finished space, with the homes original chimney being repurposed as a recessed wall niche over the opulent freestanding bath. The natural texture contrasts nicely against the minimalist, streamlined finish of the sleek wall-hung vanity, floor-to-ceiling tiles and contemporary walk-in shower recess.

The cottage features a traditional layout, with the bedrooms grouped at the front of the home on either side of a central hallway, which leads down to an expansive open plan living area at the rear.

Plush carpet provides a sense of luxurious comfort underfoot in three of the homes bedrooms, while timber flooring adds to the versatility of the fourth bedroom, which is located opposite the master suite at the front of the house and could also be utilised as a nursery or study.

The main bedroom offers a private retreat for parents, with a good-sized walk-in wardrobe and a stylishly appointed ensuite complete with floor-to-ceiling tiles.

A cosy lounge room close to the bedrooms provides an intimate setting for family gatherings or private relaxation, while at the rear of the home the stunning open plan living, dining and kitchen offers a multi-functional space for connected family living.

Triple stacking doors in the dining space and a bifold window in the kitchen open this area up to the lovely deck at the rear of the home, creating an enviable living space ideal for entertaining.

The gourmet kitchen looks like it would be at home in the pages of a lifestyle magazine and has been exquisitely styled with a fresh white-on-white colour palette. Soft grey subway tiles, a sleek island bench and quality Smeg appliances add to the rooms luxe look, while Shaker-style cabinetry and glass panelled display cabinets tie in with the homes period character.

The addition of a pitched roof alfresco area off the rear gives this period home the indoor-outdoor lifestyle modern buyers want, with white picket balustrading and timber decking ensuring it reflects the sympathetic styling of the rest of the home.

A large established tree, flourishing agapanthus garden and large expanse of manicured lawn provide a lovely green outlook from the alfresco area, while the blocks L-shaped design provides a surprisingly large additional lawn along the rear of the allotment with plenty of space for children to play.

A long concrete driveway provides ample off-street parking in front of the carport and elongated single car garage, which has additional storage and workshop space as well as drive-through access to the backyard.

Ideally located in the picturesque riverside suburb of Lorn, known for its period homes and tree-lined streets, this property is within walking distance of the local primary school, sporting facilities and charming village centre.

Across the other side of the Hunter River via the Belmore Bridge sits the revitalised Levee precinct in Maitlands city centre, which is a thriving hub of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and businesses and the gateway to the wider Maitland area, while the suburbs proximity to the New England Highway provides connectivity to key regional attractions.
