Located at the heart of Morpeth within walking distance of its riverside cafés, quirky boutiques and historic pubs, this character-filled cottage offers convenience, charm and plenty of potential.

Featuring a splendid 944.7sqm block with a long rectangular shape that could suit a potential dual occupancy development or subdivision (subject to council approval), this Morpeth property offers plenty of options for a savvy buyer.

Owner occupiers who fall in love with its generous proportions and prime location can also make the most of the large block size to explore their options, whether they wish to extend the original home to create additional accommodation, or simply use the extra space to build their dream pool area, workshop and shed or self-sufficient lifestyle with room for chickens, vegetable gardens and even a small orchard.

The cottage encapsulates the quintessential Morpeth charm, from its traditional white picket fence to the decorative fretwork running along the top of the lovely front verandah.

The classic white and green colour palette adds to the character of the weatherboard façade, while an antique-style screen door and timber entry door with detailed glass panels perfectly complete the period appeal.

A vintage glass pendant light and internal timber wall panelling provide instant ambience as you walk through the front door, while the gorgeous golden tones of the timber floorboards draw you along the central hallway to the lovely open plan living spaces.

The horizontal panelling continues throughout this area, with a neutral colour palette and high ceilings emphasising the light, bright feeling of the spacious interior.

The timber floorboards are complemented by the oversized timber-framed sliding door, which leads from the dining space out to the rear deck for a seamless indoor/outdoor living experience.

The pitched roof deck area simply oozes character and charm, with plenty of room to accommodate alfresco dining or a cosy outdoor lounge area where you can sit and enjoy a quiet cup of coffee with friends and family.

Ideal for entertaining, these well-connected indoor and outdoor spaces are easily accessible by the charming country-style kitchen, which features a galley-style configuration with timber cabinetry on both sides for ample storage space.

Updated appliances ensure the kitchen offers all the essentials, while a large window above the sink presents a pleasant leafy green outlook over the large, landscaped backyard.

Featuring three good-sized bedrooms that are almost a mirror image of one another, the property would be ideal for growing families or a downsizer looking for a low maintenance home with plenty of room for guests to stay.

A built-in wardrobe provides ample storage in one of the bedrooms, while additional space to tidy away your things is also available in the large double-door linen cupboard located outside the family bathroom.

The bathroom offers a mix of modern features and period elements, with lovely floor-to-ceiling tiling, a corner shower and a large bath in a tiled surround, while an antique-style timber vanity topped with a sleek stone benchtop and undermount basin adds to the charm.

There are plenty of features to appreciate outside as well, including the double carport accessible via double front gates, and a single car garage and workshop space at the rear of the property.

Ideally located for families, the property is just 200m from the lovely local primary school, while the picturesque Morpeth Common nature reserve, nearby sporting fields and childcare centre are also within walking distance.

Around 500m in the other direction will bring you to the heart of Morpeth's main street where you can wander along cobblestone laneways, explore the delightful range of art galleries, boutiques and gourmet cafes or stop for a drink and a bite to eat at one of the historic pubs.

Ideal for families or those looking for a quiet village life, the home is close to a range of essential services including a small supermarket and medical centre, while those who enjoy spending their weekends on the waterways can use the local jetty to access the Hunter River for boating, kayaking and fishing.

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.
