Regent Street in Maitland is renowned for its stately heritage architecture, grand residences and leafy setting. Marlton is no exception, as an outstanding example of elegant Victorian design, this immensely appealing home is presented in an authentic manner.

Completed circa 1890, it has been sympathetically restored and extended to accommodate a modern lifestyle. Original fixtures and finishes are in excellent condition, such as the rich red cedar joinery and the decorative plaster cornices. The wide polished floorboards tell the story of a growing home, the joins and changing direction add character to each space.

There are four bedrooms in the old house, all with intricately detailed cedar fireplace mantels as a focal point. Facing the street, an internal plaster arch frames a bay window decorated with designer curtains and blinds. The bedroom opposite has two sets of French doors opening to the veranda framing beautiful garden views. Of the remaining two bedrooms, one has built-in cabinetry for the study, however this is versatile.

Setting this home apart from others from this era is the extended ceiling height. About two feet above conventional high ceilings the additional space exaggerates the already generous internal scale. The regal dining room for example, where grand proportions enhance furnishings such as the chandelier and scalloped curtains.

French doors connect to the adjacent central lounge room, where a gas connection in the fireplace provides efficient heating. Another set of French doors open to a naturally illuminated sunroom, or study-nook just off the kitchen, ideally placed to keep an eye on children surfing the net.

The spacious kitchen is fitted out with solid timber cabinetry and offers plenty of storage space in two large double door pantry cupboards. Cooking is a pleasure using the European stainless steel appliances and even easier to serve when entertaining on the large private deck off the kitchen.

Enjoying an ideal northern aspect, the partially covered timber deck can be used any time of the year. Wide views over the gardens and out to Maitland beyond make for a stunning leafy backdrop.

The terraced back yard is inspired by formal Parterre gardens, A classic water feature is framed by manicured hedges surrounded by a circular lawn. Fine gravel paths separate sandstone edged perimeter gardens and stairs between levels.
