Don't miss your chance to bring this renovation project back to life in one of the most sought-after suburbs in Maitland.

This compact charmer is located in Lorn, a blue ribbon suburb featuring wide, tree-line streets, a riverside location and heritage character, with the revitalised city centre of Maitland just a short walk away across the Belmore Bridge.

This property is located in a quiet street surrounded by other heritage-style homes and is ripe for renovation.

Sitting behind a low brick fence and large flowering tree, the weatherboard and tile home offers a touch of character with plenty of potential to enhance its street appeal and facade, which features a covered front porch, timber sash windows and decorative screen door.

The original character continues inside, where lovely wide plank timber floorboards add warmth and texture to the living area and two front bedrooms.

High skirting boards, picture rails and timber sash windows provide touches of period detail, while a gorgeous non-operational cast iron fireplace with tiled hearth and surround offers the perfect heritage inspiration for a sympathetic renovation.

The kitchen sits at the heart of the home and features a more modern style, with timber-look cabinetry, dark laminate benchtops and a stainless steel oven and four-burner gas cooktop.

The kitchen has two entry points, providing access to the front lounge room as well as a versatile rear room, which could be a third bedroom or second living area. This multifunctional space feels bright and welcoming, with a floor-to-ceiling glass sliding door that floods the room with natural light while also providing access to the covered alfresco area at the rear.

Located adjacent to this room, the bathroom features an eye-catching geometric floor tile, a modern white vanity and built-in bath, while the toilet is located in the adjoining laundry, which can also be accessed directly through the kitchen.

The home's two front bedrooms are both generously-proportioned, with a built-in wardrobe in one and a television connection in the other.

Ceiling fans are included in all three potential bedroom spaces, while the front lounge room has a split system air conditioner.

A low maintenance block with established lawns and gardens ensure the property is easy to maintain, making it ideal for renovators looking to on-sell the finished property to the downsizer or retiree market, or young couples wanting to get onto the property ladder.

Ideally located in the picturesque riverside suburb of Lorn, this property is within walking distance of the local primary school, sporting facilities and charming village centre with its cafes, boutiques and everyday essentials.

Across the other side of the Hunter River sits the revitalised Levee precinct in Maitland's city centre, which is a busy hub of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and businesses.

A thriving cultural precinct, anchored by the renowned Maitland Regional Art Gallery, and complemented by the eclectic mix of private art galleries, antiques shops and boutiques are located within the city centre, while sports enthusiasts are well catered for with a regionally significant multi-use park and playground with outdoor and indoor swimming pools, as well as facilities catering for hockey, cricket, touch football, croquet and soccer.

A strong retail precinct in Maitland caters for all your day-to-day needs, with multiple shopping centres and supermarkets, while the suburb's proximity to the New England Highway provides connectivity to key regional attractions such as the vineyards of Pokolbin and beaches of Newcastle.
