Ripe for restoration, this circa 1920 Federation home is packed full of charm and offers a refined lifestyle in the highly sought and tightly held suburb of Lorn.

Nestled near the banks of the Hunter River, Kel-owi offers those that love renovating a captivating project in which they can restore this beauty to her former glory.

But far from derelict, the property has been well kept and is immediately liveable, so you can do the restoration at your own pace.

The period features start at the front gate with the original hardwood picket fence framing the two-level home.

Cement front steps lead to the covered timber verandah, which features detailed Federation timber fretwork, and the original timber front door with stunning leadlight inserts is a true highlight.

Inside the charming features keep coming, with a leadlight bullseye feature window taking centre stage in the wide entry hall.

The leadlight and timber windows continue in the spacious living room where patterned ceilings, striking timber fretwork, picture rails, rich natural timber high skirting boards and a brick fireplace pay homage to yesteryear.

The dining room takes a slightly more modern turn combining a fireplace, wide timber skirting boards and elegant timber doors, with leadlight inserts, with new brush box timber flooring and a new ceiling complete with rosette.

The kitchen and meals area is both practical and charming with large timber windows and timber French doors leading out to the rear entertaining deck.

The kitchen has lots of timber cabinetry, long benches, a built-in wine rack and a dishwasher.

The home has four bedrooms, two on the ground floor and two more on the upper level.

The master bedroom features all of the period details that make the home great, including timber and leadlight windows, timber wall and ceiling accents, wide cedar skirting boards and timber doors, with leadlight detailing, which lead to the front verandah.

Practically it features a shower over the bath, a timber vanity with ceramic basin and original accessories.
