PRETTY AS A PICTURE - Auction held at River Realty Office - 7 Church Street MAITLAND

With its classic cottage facade and traditional front picket fence, its easy to fall in love with this charming Lorn home.

But theres so much more than the pretty-as-a-picture exterior that will appeal to buyers looking to make themselves at home in one of Maitlands most prestigious areas.

Tucked away in a tranquil tree-lined street at the heart of this garden suburb, the property has been beautifully presented inside and out, with a soft neutral colour scheme enhancing the homes graceful period features.

A timber arbour provides a story-book like entry to this captivating cottage, with flourishing front gardens creating a lush green border around the weatherboard and galvanised steel roof home.

An abundance of windows, including a lovely bay configuration, add to the street appeal of the facade while also flooding the two front bedrooms with plenty of natural light.

All three of the homes bedrooms feel light, bright and welcoming, with plush cream carpet adding a sense of warmth and luxury underfoot while tall timber skirting boards, picture rails and detailed ceilings provide a nod to the homes heritage.

Two of the bedrooms, including the main, feature built-in wardrobes for convenience, with roll-down blinds and curtains for versatility and privacy.

The bedrooms are all grouped at the front of the house, with easy access to the lovely family bathroom.

Large wall and floor tiles add a warm tone and texture to the bathroom, while stainless steel handrails in the shower offer an element of practicality, especially for older buyers.

A sleek white vanity with moulded sink and underbench storage gives the space a contemporary feel, while a mirrored storage cabinet over the sink is a useful touch.

Beyond the bedroom area, the home has a surprisingly generous layout, with a separate dining room and large living area, as well as a gallery kitchen, second sitting area and a screened and enclosed outdoor entertaining space.

The living areas have been split into three distinct zones, with the adjoining dining and lounge room offering a homely, formal space in the middle of the house, complete with brick fireplace, tiled hearth and stunning decorative ceilings.

A sliding door from the dining area leads through into the kitchen to make meal times easy, while also allowing you to close this central space off from the rear of the home for a more intimate dinner party atmosphere.

The kitchen and nearby sitting room occupy an open plan space that runs across the full width of the home, with sliding door access to both the rear alfresco area and the good-sized laundry, which features a second toilet for added convenience.

A long L-shaped benchtop and ample overhead and underbench cupboards provide plentiful storage and preparation space in the kitchen, while a large window over the sink enhances the sense of connection with the entertaining space outside.

The alfresco area has been screened and enclosed, with pebblecrete flooring, a raked roof and roll-down blinds ensuring it is the perfect space to relax in or entertain guests all year round.

The wall of windows along the rear and sides of the alfresco area provides a lovely outlook over the landscaped rear year, with its established hedges, large shrubs and flourishing garden beds.

The backyard also features a double car garage for secure vehicle and equipment storage, while the front concrete driveway and tandem double car carport provide additional off-street and covered parking.

Ideally located in Lorn, which is known for its wide tree-lined streets, stunning heritage architecture, and relaxed village feel, the property would be perfect for downsizers, retirees or young families wanting to take advantage of the suburbs tranquil atmosphere.
