32 The Avenue
Lorn, NSW 2320

Sold on 19th October 2019


Theres nothing quite like the elegance of a well-maintained period home. From the traditional charm of the front picket fence, and the appeal of the wraparound verandah wreathed in Pierre de Ronsard roses, to the soaring grandeur of the 10ft ceilings and the vintage aesthetic of the decorative cornices and ceilings, the elements work seamlessly together to add character to this timeless masterpiece.

Located in one of the loveliest tree-lined streets in Lorn, within walking distance of the banks of the Hunter River and the revitalised CBD of Maitland, the property offers a tranquil suburban escape close to the city.

Its timeless allure begins from the street, with a heritage-coloured picket fence giving way to flourishing formal garden beds, a neatly manicured patch of lawn and a traditional weatherboard exterior with a Colorbond roof.

An ornamental screen door and delicate leadlight windows add to the authenticity of the traditional facade, while the wraparound verandah, which runs across the front and down one side before returning along the back of the house, provide endless shady spots to sit and enjoy the tranquility of the location.

A heritage paint scheme of soft and deep stone colours gives the exterior of the property a soft, homely appearance, with vivid white used for the timber window frames for contrast.

White has also been used effectively inside the home to create a fresh, crisp look, picking out the detail on the panelled ceiling, hallway fretwork, decorative cornices and tall skirting boards to accentuate the period style.

A variety of soft, neutral colours have been used for the walls throughout, with the white picture rails and the remaining wall surfaces above it also painted white to lighten and brighten the space.

The home has three oversized bedrooms, with the front two both featuring large built-in wardrobes complete with shelving, hanging space and drawers.

A timber bay window with stunning leadlight windows and a charming built-in window seat with storage give the master bedroom a sense of romance, complemented by the original polished timber floorboards that run throughout the entire home.

All three bedrooms have beautiful decorative ceilings and vintage pendant lights, while the original coal-burning fireplace with its decorative tiled hearth and timber mantelpiece adds to the charm of the third bedroom.

The home has a variety of living spaces to cater for large families or owners who enjoy entertaining, including a formal lounge room with stylish double French doors that open out to the side verandah.

The kitchen features both contemporary and vintage elements that work together to create a space that is warm and welcoming, including heritage-style panelled cabinetry in a crisp white finish and a granite-look laminate benchtop, which wrap around the edges of the kitchen. A stunning island bench with 20mm white stone benchtop sits in the middle of the space for added storage and preparation areas.

The kitchen and adjoining open plan dining room flow seamlessly into an expansive lounge room at the rear, creating a lovely spacious zone where families or friends can gather together.

The huge second living area stretches across the rear of the house, with a bank of large glass sliding doors running the full width of the room flooding it with natural light. Framing the flourishing cottage gardens at the rear to create a picturesque outlook, the doors can also be opened wide to create a seamless indoor-outdoor experience that extends the living space onto the rear covered verandah.

Large enough to accommodate an outdoor dining table and lounge setting, the verandah provides the perfect space to sit and enjoy the lush green outlook. An abundance of shrubs, flowering plants and towering trees create a tapestry of colour all year round, while also adding to the peaceful privacy of the space.

The property is perfectly positioned within walking distance of the local primary school and sporting facilities, as well as cafes, boutiques and neighbourhood shops.

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, while the suburbs proximity to the New England Highway provides connectivity to key regional attractions.
