From its timeless facade to its elegant interior, this lovely Lorn home offers something truly special from a bygone era.

A traditional picket fence, neatly manicured front garden and wraparound verandah framed with timber fretwork and brick columns set the scene for this stunning heritage home, which was built in the 1920s and has been immaculately maintained.

The front and side verandah provides three access points to the home, with a solid timber front door and decorative screen leading into a central hallway, and a pair of timber French doors offering direct access into one of the bedrooms.

The side verandah also provides entry into a delightful sun-drenched study, which comes complete with a lovely bay window, custom-built cabinetry and its own internal access into an adjoining bedroom.

The home has four generously-proportioned bedrooms in total, with spacious built-in wardrobes in three of them including twin vintage-style wardrobes flanking the French doors in the front bedroom.

The master suite has an expanse of storage on offer, with a wall-length wardrobe with four sliding mirrored doors in the bedroom itself and a double-door linen cupboard in the adjoining two-way ensuite.

The home is also well catered for when it comes to living areas, with an elegant formal lounge towards the front that features intricate decorative ceiling panels, delicately patterned wallpaper and a stunning chandelier.

A gas fireplace in one corner and plush carpet underfoot add to the cosiness of the space, while the high ceilings add a sense of understated grandeur.

Stunning original features have been retained throughout the property to create refined authenticity, including detailed cornices, decorative ceiling panels and Colonial skirtings and architraves, while vintage-style wallpaper, period pendants and wall-mounted lights complement the traditional period elements.

A polished timber mantelpiece surrounding a wood-burning fireplace offers a stately focal point to draw the eye in the dining room, while twin wall arches create a seamless connection to the adjoining lounge room.

The kitchen also sits adjacent to the dining room, offering easy access for family meals or when hosting dinner parties.

Upgraded three years ago, the kitchen is a light and bright space with clean, contemporary lines and plenty of storage areas.

Glossy white cabinetry and a sleek subway tiled splashback bounce the natural light off every surface, while pale green painted walls above the cabinetry help tie the space into the homes overall heritage style and colour palette.

Polished timber floorboards add warmth and texture to the kitchen, while 20mm stone benchtops give it an understated sense of luxury. A wide recess large enough to accommodate an oversized French door fridge ensures the kitchen will cater to the largest of families or those who love to entertain.

The homes rear lounge room is also an entertainers delight, with timber French doors allowing this space to be opened up to the rear covered verandah while also providing a lovely aspect over the neatly manicured backyard.
Brick columns and timber fretwork help to define the rear verandah while also providing a stylistic link to the front fa?ade.

This alfresco area is a lovely, private space fringed by established plants and trees, offering an ideal vantage point to sit and relax with a cup of coffee and a good book, or enjoy an outdoor dining experience.

An expansive covered cabana at the rear of the property offers another fantastic outdoor space, providing a private, shady spot to watch over the children as they splash around in the inground saltwater swimming pool.

A private manicured lawn and detached double garage with adjoining carport add to the propertys outdoor features.

Located in Lorn, a picturesque suburb on the banks of the Hunter River known for its heritage architecture and wide tree-lined streets, this property is ideally located within walking distance of the local school, sporting fields and the neighbourhood shops and cafes.

Across the other side of the 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.
