Almost unrecognisable after a complete renovation and extension, this historic Lorn property has been totally transformed into a masterpiece of elegant period luxury.

Now undoubtedly one of the loveliest properties on one of Lorn’s most prestigious tree-lined streets, the home has been seamlessly and meticulously refurbished over a three-year period to successfully blend the old with the new.

A sympathetic brick extension added to the rear and side has significantly increased the internal floorspace of the home, while the layout has also been reconfigured to suit a modern family lifestyle.

The home now features four bedrooms including an oversized master suite, which has been luxuriously designed with a walk-in wardrobe that leads through to the beautifully-appointed ensuite, while the original box window provides a charming sitting space in the main bedroom area that comes to life when the sun shines through the stained glass window panes.

The home’s family bathroom has been lavishly finished and has an elegant character, enhanced by the romance of its stunning cast iron fireplace, gorgeously framed by a decorative timber mantel and herringbone tiled hearth.

A commitment to retaining or reinstating as many period features as possible has given the home an essence of sophistication, with details including decorative cornices, ceiling roses and archways, as well as the original stained glass windows, giving the home plenty of ambience.

Fittings, fixtures and the overall interior styling has also been heavily influenced by this heritage character, from the vintage clawfoot bath, pedestal basins, heritage and telephone tapware in the luxury bathroom and ensuite, to the vintage-style pendant lights, stunning chandeliers and heritage-style cabinetry used throughout the house.

The home is not without a hearty dose of modern luxury as well, from the ducted air conditioning and Velux skylights to the herringbone and mosaic tiling, and opulent marble benchtops.

A lovely neutral colour palette has been used throughout, with tones of pale greys and soft whites completed by the rich warm tones of the original timber floorboards.

Hardwood timber flooring has been used in the kitchen, dining and living room extension at the rear of the home, while lovely light grey carpet provides a plush and cosy feel underfoot in three of the bedrooms.

The home features two main living zones, with a formal-style lounge room adjoining the three bedrooms in the original section of the home.

Oversized windows and high ceilings ensure this is a bright and beautiful space, set off by the stunning chandelier overhead.

The main living space forms the heart of the home’s newer extension to the rear, with a gorgeous open plan design that incorporates the kitchen, living and dining room.

Three sets of French doors open this space up to the lovely covered alfresco area for entertaining, while also providing a lush green outlook to the landscaped backyard.

A fourth set of French doors also provide access to the decked verandah to the side of the home, complementing the indoor/outdoor connections.

This living area has been beautifully layered with an array of eye-catching features, including the cosy woodburning fireplace, the vintage-style pendant lights and stunning ceiling roses, and the showpiece gourmet kitchen, featuring heritage-panelled cabinetry, rich timber benchtops and a long list of luxury inclusions.

If the neatly manicured private gardens, charming garden shed renovated to match the style of the house and wonderful decked alfresco area aren’t enough to win you over to the property’s external features, there’s also the detached two-storey double garage that makes a wonderful addition to this property, complete with a fully self-contained studio.

Designed over two levels, the stylish studio features an open plan kitchen, dining and living space downstairs, as well as a neat and tidy bathroom and laundry, while upstairs an expansive timber-lined room provides separate zones for a large bedroom and a second living area.

The studio features split system air conditioning and ceiling fans to keep it comfortable all year round, making it perfect for a variety of uses.

Located in the heart of historic Lorn, surrounded by wide tree-lined streets and period homes, this property is within walking distance of the riverside suburb’s charming neighbourhood shopping precinct, while the amenities and attractions of the revitalised Levee area and bustling Maitland city centre are a two-minute drive across the other side of the Hunter River.
