With an air of elegance, touch of luxury and endless character and charm, this beautifully renovated Morpeth property is unlike anything else on the market.

Built in the mid-1870s as a traditional country farmhouse and renovated several times over the years, the homes most recent transformation has restored it to its former glory, with all the grace and grandeur of a bygone era.

Located on a sprawling 1669sqm corner block with views over the farmlands and billabongs to Four Mile Creek, the property is just metres from the bustling heart of the historic village of Morpeth, with its treasure trove of boutiques, museums, cafes and art galleries.

Decorative wrought iron fencing and established hedges around the boundary of the property create a dignified first impression complemented by the classy monochromatic colour scheme and wide wraparound timber verandahs, which add to the elegant farmhouse fa?ade.

Two towering Moreton Bay fig trees positioned in the corners of the block stand like ancient reminders of the propertys heritage, while also enhancing the grandeur of its streetscape.

A small established orchard, plentiful vegetable garden and large chicken run with aviary complement the rural heritage of the property, while lovely landscaped gardens surrounding the home add a softness and sense of tranquility to the setting.

Inside, the home features a layout typical of the era, with a long central hallway leading from the original solid timber front door all the way through to the rear.

Two generously-proportioned bedrooms flank the hallway at the front of the home, followed by an elegant lounge room and cosy sitting room, before the home opens out into a spacious eat-in kitchen that is flooded with natural light.

With a bank of custom-built oak cabinetry running along one wall, featuring 27 soft-closing drawers and a stunning 30mm thick solid oak benchtop, the kitchen offers a contemporary take on a traditional country vibe.

A freestanding Homestead electric and wood-burning cooker, recessed within an exposed brick surround, enhances the cosy, rustic ambience of the space, while soothing pastel green paint on the walls adds a splash of colour to the kitchen.

Large timber sash windows and a skylight over the sink ensure the room feels bright and spacious, while a designer pendant light over the dining space gives it a contemporary look.

Designed to accommodate a large family, the home has two additional bedrooms built into the attic space under the eaves, as well as a fifth bedroom or fantastic home office space accessible via an elongated living room, which overlooks the rear alfresco area and swimming pool.

The homes family bathroom has been luxuriously renovated to create a stylish and tranquil retreat, with matte white and grey hexagonal floor tiles, a vintage clawfoot bath, sleek walk-in shower space and wall-hung ply vanity.

Custom cabinetry and extensive storage cupboards throughout the home add a sense of luxury and practicality to its interior, while traditional features lend character and charm to the design, from the soaring 2.7m ceilings and high 180mm skirting boards, to the decorative cornices, ornate ceiling roses and architecturally beautiful archways with detailed plaster surrounds.

Mahogany hardwood floorboards and four Victorian cast iron fireplaces surrounded by decorative timber mantels add a rich sense of warmth and texture to the rooms, while French doors, painted brickwork and stained glass paneling offer a lovely depth of detail that complements the overall character of the property.

The propertys long list of features continue outside, with an impressive array of entertaining spaces including a rear covered alfresco area paved with 3000 convict-era bricks, an inground saltwater pool and spa area, and an external games room, which has a separate shower perfect for use after a swim.

At the back of the property there is a double car garage and single car garage with separate workshop, which are both accessible from a quiet rear lane. These provide ample storage space for your vehicles, tools and gardening equipment, while an additional three off-street parking spaces can also be accessed via the rear farm-style gate.
