Unlock the potential of this understated Morpeth cottage with a renovation that melds old with new and help create a new life for this historic home.

The initial work has already been completed on two of the bedrooms, where neutral tones and feature paneling hint at the elegance that can be achieved with a stylish facelift.

Further renovations could make the most of the homes lovely original features, with dado boards and higher ceilings providing plenty of potential to meld vintage chic with modern style to create an enviable Morpeth address.

The homes original timber floorboards add a lovely sense of warmth and charm throughout the home, which could be enhanced with a further sand and polish to bring them back to their best.

The weatherboard and iron roofed home was built approximately 105-year-ago and relocated from Sydney in 1956 to begin the next chapter of its story in this historic riverside village.

It features a versatile internal layout that could be configured to suit the needs of family buyers looking for plenty of sleeping accommodation, or downsizers keen to create additional living spaces.

The home has four good-sized bedrooms, with the largest space at the rear offering an ideal area to create a cosy living room that overlooks the backyard and has direct access to the covered verandah.

The second-largest bedroom would make an obvious master suite, with proximity to the family bathroom and direct access to the enclosed sunroom providing all the elements needed to create a private parents retreat.

Elongated banks of windows on two of the walls in the sunroom flood the space with natural light, with its east-facing aspect ensuring it is the perfect place to curl up with a cup of coffee in winter and bask in the warmth of the morning sun.

The central open plan kitchen and dining room space is located at the rear of the home overlooking the leafy backyard, with direct access to the rear verandah and laundry. The area has plenty of potential to be reimagined for a modern lifestyle, while the presence of the homes original log-burning cooker provides a touch of authentic heritage style that could become a focal point in the space.

A good sized laundry, two separate toilets and a family bathroom with freestanding clawfoot bath complete the internal accommodation, while a covered verandah along the front of the home and a covered alfresco area with concrete flooring at the rear provide a number of outdoor spaces for entertaining or relaxing.

The home is set on a spacious 682.9sqm corner block with established gardens and a large expanse of lawn, as well as a new timber boundary fence.

A large detached garage at the rear of the block provides accommodation for two cars as well as additional storage space.

The property is perfectly positioned within walking distance of Morpeths historic main street, where you can meander along cobblestone laneways and discover gourmet delights, handcrafted treasures and antique heirlooms, or while away the afternoon in one of the riverside coffee shops or historic pubs.

For those who prefer to spend their spare time in the outdoors, the riverside villages waterways are filled with recreational fisherman, kayakers or tourists taking a leisurely cruise along the scenic Hunter River.

Ideal for those looking for a quiet village life, the property is close to a range of essential services including a small supermarket, medical centre and primary school, with a range of playgrounds and sporting facilities scattered throughout the suburb.

The boutique shopping precincts of Melbourne and Lawes streets in East Maitland and the major retail and entertainment hub of Stockland Green Hills are around 10 minutes away, while the revitalised Levee shopping area in central Maitland, which is becoming a local culinary hotspot, is a 15 minute drive.
