Picturesque lifestyle property awaits

Nestled in the heart of historic Morpeth, just a block from the tranquil banks of the Hunter River, this picturesque property looks as though it’s stepped from the pages of your favourite children’s fairytale.

Set on a 695sq m block amongst a lush, rambling garden, the gorgeous yellow weatherboard cottage is framed with a deep-set verandah on three sides.

Dormer windows peek from the high pitched, iron roof to complete the thoroughly charming facade, while indoors stained glass windows and doors combine with soaring, cedar-paneled, cathedral ceilings that will capture your attention and your heart.

Ideal for a range of buyers, including executive couples, downsizers and a small family, the property could lend itself to being the perfect bed and breakfast or Airbnb, should a savvy investor wish to capitalise on its prime location and character-filled spaces.

The property is located in the heart of Morpeth, which was once a bustling port in colonial times, and is within easy walking distance of all it has to offer, including the historic Queens Wharf, cafes, restaurants, boutique shopping and historic sites such as the local museum.

The local primary school is just a hop and a skip away, while a 10-minute drive will have you in the Maitland CBD and 45-minutes will see you in Newcastle.

Stepping inside the home reveals a spacious, open plan living and dining space that is flooded with natural light from the series of shuttered windows that line the back wall.

This, combined with the exposed beam, cedar-line ceiling creates a space that is rustic, warm and brimming with personality.

Stained glass windows and doors can be found throughout the home and in the kitchen you’ll find the perfect blend of timber cabinetry and cross-hatch leaded windows behind the sink.

There’s a St George oven with a four burner cooktop and a Mitsubishi air conditioner keeps things cool in summer in the living space.

An adjacent conservatory, which is connected to the house via the verandah, is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast or to sit and while away the hours with a good book and a hot cup of tea.

If you’d prefer to swap your tea for a wine, it also lends itself nicely to an evening soiree, quiet celebration or dining space.

The lower level features a spacious main bedroom on the lower level, which has private access to the two way bathroom, which offers a large shower, skylight and stained glass window.

Up the cedar and wrought iron staircase you’ll find a pair of quaint bedrooms, each with those charming dormer windows, stunning ceiling and built-in robe.

A second bathroom completes this level and offers a shower over the bath and another pretty stained glass window.

Other features of the property include a detached double garage with a kitchenette, bathroom and a large loft space with storage.
