Fall in love with this lush hidden oasis in the heart of Maitland, which combines inner city convenience and Victorian splendour with a flourishing backyard landscape that has to be seen to be believed.

Forget about needing to find a car park when you go out to dinner, check out a movie or head to the shops, this two-storey home is perfectly positioned with Maitland's main attractions virtually on your doorstep.

An easy 750m walk will deliver you to the revitalised Levee precinct, which offers up a world of shopping and entertainment options, as well as a well-regarded dining district full of interesting bars, cafes and restaurants.

The surrounding areas feature a variety of cultural and recreational options, from the cinema complex located just 200m from your front door to the renowned Maitland Regional Art Gallery and the first class sporting facilities at the recently upgraded No.1 Sportsground and the Maitland Regional Athletics Centre.

Quality public and Catholic educational options are also in walking distance, with both primary and secondary schools within the city centre.

Easy access to public transport including Maitland Train Station makes travelling to other locations across the region a breeze, while the pedestrian overpass at the train station provides convenient access to the playgrounds, sporting facilities and open spaces of Maitland Park, which also features both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

If the location isn't enough to win you over, wait until you see inside the charming detached terrace house itself, which is packed with stunning period features and modern upgrades that are sure to impress.

Built in the early 1900s, this lovely weatherboard and iron roof Victorian home offers plenty of character while the recently repainted exterior gives it a lovely fresh feel from the street.

Inside, the home transports you back to a more elegant era with its original hardwood timber flooring, stunning cedar ceiling panelling, architraves, and skirting boards, as well as its beautifully turned timber staircase.

Cosy cast iron fireplaces with decorative timber mantels in the living area and second bedroom add to the period ambience, while dado rails, high ceilings and vintage-style pendant lights enhance the effect.

The stunning kitchen has been sympathetically updated in keeping with the period of the home, featuring Shaker style cabinetry with detailed handles, overhead glass-fronted display cabinets and a heritage-style mixer tap over the sink, while sleek stone benchtops and modern appliances add a touch of contemporary chic to the space.

Double French doors open this space out onto the glorious rear decked alfresco area, which has been recently updated with fresh paint, gorgeous VJ board ceiling and new LED downlighting to create a beautiful, tranquil area that is ideal for outdoor dining.

The large main bathroom has also been updated to create a stylish space with touches of old and new, while the downstairs level also includes the cosy living room and a large formal dining room that could also be utilised as a third bedroom.

The stunning original staircase in the front hallway leads to the second storey of this home, which is occupied by two generously-proportioned bedrooms.

The master bedroom is a warm and inviting space, with a lovely stained glass feature above the beautiful French doors, which lead out to the spacious upstairs balcony where you can sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee while you look out over the streetscape.

You're spoiled for choice when it comes to lovely locations to sit and enjoy your surrounds in this property, which has one of the most fabulous rear garden spaces you'll find in an inner city residence.

The dappled light filtering through the branches of the towering trees creates a shady oasis where it's easy to forget you're living in the heart of the city, surrounded by flourishing tropical garden beds and bricked edged pathways.

High fencing completes the feeling a privacy and seclusion, while rear lane access to off-street parking adds to the overall appeal.
