Step back in time at this stunning, turn-of-the-century, family home, where timeless elegance combines with modern finesse with effortless ease.

Aptly named The Gunyah, an Aboriginal term for a shelter, the classic red brick home has provided many families with a warm, loving environment to call home over the years.

Nestled near the banks of the Hunter River in the heart of Maitland, the property will provide a young family the perfect backdrop for a laidback, tranquil lifestyle where being close to everything is highly sought.

You can take a stroll to the shopping centre, grab brunch at a nearby cafe on the weekend and even the Maitland Hospital is within walking distance.

The character-filled, three-bedroom home is positioned on a 451sq m block and is surrounded by lush, established gardens and other period homes beyond its borders.

Framed by a brick pier and wrought iron fence, along with formal gardens, the home packs a real kerb appeal punch and thats before you get to the beautifully tuck pointed facade and bullnose verandah with decorative fretwork.

The front verandah is bathed in sunlight in winter mornings and is perfect place to enjoy your morning cuppa. Two large liquid amber trees provide ample shade in the summer months.

As you would expect, period features abound in this character-filled property, including soaring 12 cedar ceilings, which are mirrored below with rich, polished cedar floorboards.

Timber skirting boards, architraves and picture rails all get a big tick, and the working, ornate fireplace with a decorative timber mantelpiece is a hallmark of the home, taking pride of place in the living room.

Natural light is a feature of the home, with the large rooms inviting the surrounding garden views indoors.

A free-flowing floor plan positions the three bedrooms at the front of the home, with all offering generous proportions, picture rails and statement pendant lights in keeping with the homes heritage.

You can also create a romantic mood in the main bedroom with another working, decorative fireplace or utilise this space as a second sitting area or home office.

Following in the tradition of period homes, the abode boasts a separate dining room and a lovely, large kitchen that is perfectly styled in pastel green and cream hues.

A feature Canberra Metters wood burning stove creates a stunning focal point in the kitchen, while an electric four burner gas cooktop and electric oven provide more up-to-date cooking facilities.

Running down the side of the home youll find a lovely enclosed verandah, with its exposed iron roofing and white timber frame giving the space a slight industrial edge.

As well as being aesthetically pleasing, its a versatile space that perfectly lends itself to being a sitting area or reading room.

At the end of a long day you can soak away your worries in the luxuriously deep clawfoot bath in the central bathroom, which also features a separate shower.

Outdoor entertaining is catered for with a choice of two paved patios surrounded by established gardens, while side access leads to a single garage and single carport.
