If you love the look of a contemporary property but enjoy the tranquil nature of one of Maitland's favourite heritage suburbs, this property is the perfect package.

Located on the rural outskirts of Lorn, this outstanding property offers the rare chance to secure a new build in one of the oldest areas in Maitland.

The brick and Colorbond Coral home was built in 2016 and offers a timeless façade with a sympathetic nod to the era of the suburb, including a wraparound verandah, heritage-style coach lights, decorative glass inserts in the entry door and a traditional picket fence and timber arbour.

A heritage colour scheme with cream and red accents adds to the overall effect, while sandstone-bordered garden beds with neat rows of bushes provide a cottage-garden ambience.

Inside, however, is a far more contemporary affair, highlighted by sleek stone benchtops, large ceramic tiles and crisp white soft-closing cabinetry, as well as zoned ducted air conditioning and plantation shutters.

A subway tiled splashback, trio of matte black pendant lights and quality stainless steel appliances keep up the modern look in the gourmet kitchen, while the wall-hung vanities, chrome mixers and semi-recessed white basins give the bathroom and ensuite a stylish, streamlined feel.

The home has a fantastic layout that is ideal for families and those who love to entertain, with good separation of the bedrooms from the living areas and a seamless flow from the internal living to the covered alfresco areas.

There are four bedrooms in total, with two located at the front of the home with access to an adjacent living space, providing children with their own area to chill out and relax.

A third bedroom is off the hallway leading to the master, while a good-sized study off the entry hall offers an alternate space for those working from home.

The bedrooms are all well-sized and feature built-in wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors, ceiling fans with light fittings and TV connection points.

The master suite is located to the rear of the home and offers a tranquil parents' retreat with a luxuriously large ensuite that features a bath, twin basin vanity and large shower, while a spacious walk-in wardrobe completes the package.

Aside from the children's activity area, the large home features two more living areas, including an expansive open plan living, kitchen and dining space complete with a cosy wood burning fireplace, as well as adjoining media room at the rear which includes a gas bayonet.

Both of these living spaces provide direct access to the alfresco area through glass sliding doors for seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining, with the media room also overlooking the pool.

The property's external entertaining spaces are sure to appeal to families, with a tiled and covered alfresco area that wraps around the rear and side of the home and provides plenty of space for outdoor dining as well as a lounge setting.

A concrete pad at the back of the drive-through access in the garage provides even more space for seating when the weather is fine, while an inground saltwater fibreglass pool surrounded by gorgeous travertine tiling is sure to see plenty of action in the summer months.

Established gardens, fruits trees including avocado, passionfruit & blueberries, vegetable gardens and a manicured lawn ensure the fully fenced backyard has a lovely green outlook with plenty of space for children or pets to play, while a completely automated pop-up sprinkler system and water tank make looking after the greenery a low maintenance affair.

A double attached garage, ample off-street parking including room for caravan or boat in driveway and a rear Colorbond garden shed and pool house provide ample storage space.

Located in the blue ribbon riverside suburb of Lorn, the home is a short walk from a central shopping village composed of boutique shops and cafes, while across the Belmore Bridge the redeveloped 'Levee' shopping precinct is home to a growing range of retail outlets, cafes, craft beer bars and restaurants.

A charming local primary school, parks, playgrounds and sporting fields make the suburb popular with families, while its tranquil tree-lined streets, heritage architecture and quiet community feel add to its appeal.
