90 High Street
Morpeth, NSW 2321

Sold on 9th December 2019


Combining cottage charm with original details and a prime position, this three-bedroom Morpeth home is packed with potential.

Built in the 1940s with a cladded exterior and a tile roof, the home sits at the heart of the bustling village of Morpeth, a vibrant tourism destination famous for its heritage architecture and history as a colonial river port.

Morpeth offers an interesting collection of cafes, specialty shops, art galleries and boutique stores, while its waterways are filled with recreational fisherman, kayakers or tourists taking a leisurely cruise along the scenic Hunter River, with easy access from the nearby Queens Wharf jetty.

This low maintenance property is ideal for downsizers and retirees, giving them plenty of time to 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.

The home features three good-sized bedrooms, including one with a large four-door built-in wardrobe, while all three feature carpeted flooring, ceiling fans with light fittings and both venetian blinds and sheer curtains on the windows.

A central hallway leads from the timber and stained glass front door past the bedrooms to the spacious lounge room.

The bright and airy space showcases some of the homes loveliest original features including decorative fretwork in the hallway, dado panels on the walls, high picture rails and beading on the ceiling, as well as a feature sandstone mantel.

Higher ceilings throughout the home are another nod to the homes original era, making each room feel spacious and light, while two walls of windows help create a warm, welcoming ambience in the lovely formal dining or sunroom.

A large kitchen and casual meals area completes the homes living spaces, with extended u-shaped cabinetry providing plenty of practical storage and preparation areas.

An oversized bathroom has been finished with older buyers in mind, offering convenient handrails and plenty of space to make it easier to navigate for those with mobility issues.

A second separate toilet is situated in the rear landing of the house, while an external laundry on its own concrete slab is located just outside the back door. The laundry includes a deep double basin laundry tub, clothes dryer wall mount and the electric hot water service, with a concrete path conveniently leading from this space to the Hills hoist clothesline in the backyard.

The yard is neat, tidy and easy to maintain, with established garden beds and a vegetable patch.

Owners who love to tinker with their tools are well catered for by this property, with a tandem triple car carport/garage with remote controlled door, as well as a separate workshop space, while dual side gates provide additional access to the rear yard.

The property has been well maintained and would be ready for its new owners to move straight into, however investors with an eye for potential are also sure to be attracted by the chance to take this home to the next level.

A sympathetic restoration would easily add to the propertys overall value, with the chance to modernise the home with a stunning renovation that makes the most of its original features.

Buyers could renovate to live in it themselves and make the most of its location, or flip the home knowing it will have plenty of appeal once completed for those looking for something in this sought-after heritage area where all the hard work has already been done.

Ideal for anyone 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, while 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.
