From the glamour of the ensuite to the splendour of the original details and the long list of added extras, this gorgeous period property in Morpeth offers style, sophistication and an enviable lifestyle.

Located just a short stroll from the centre of this historic village, known for its charming cafes, unique specialty shops and picturesque riverside location, the property offers plenty of appeal.

Positioned on a generously proportioned 923sqm block in the heart of Morpeth, the property offers character-inspired living in a sympathetically renovated and immaculately maintained home.

A traditional white picket fence and the original 1910s façade perfectly capture the period essence of this lovely home, which features cast iron uprights and detailed fretwork along the bullnose verandah.

A cobbled brick pathway leads from the front gate to the verandah, while established gardens give the weatherboard and iron-roofed home a lush, green aspect from the kerb.

A decorative screen door and the original glass paneling keep with the Federation era of the property, while an ornate arch in the hallway is a lovely welcoming touch.

The home's period credentials are evident throughout, from the 11 foot ceilings, detailed cornices, ceiling roses and timber picture rails to the cedar skirting boards and architraves, timber sash windows and gorgeous French doors.

The original hardwood timber floorboards add a beautiful sense of texture and history to the original sections of the house, with a rich warmth that complements the subtle neutral colour scheme used on the walls.

More recent additions have also been sympathetically chosen to reflect the gorgeous Federation detailing, such as the stunning brushed gold tapware, custom-made vanity and oversized freestanding clawfoot bath in the ensuite.

Painted timber paneling on the ceiling of the eat-in kitchen and expansive open plan living room enhance the character and charm of the home, while the exposed bricks where the original stove once stood adds to the kitchen's authenticity.

The rich tones of the Federation-style timber cabinetry give the kitchen a warm and inviting ambience, while 40mm stone benchtops, a subway tiled splashback and modern appliances add a touch of luxury to the space.

The home features four bedrooms including an opulent master suite that is truly a parents' oasis. Featuring plenty of room for a king-sized bedroom setting, there is also a private retreat at one end framed by a stunning bay window where you can create a tranquil sitting area, while the walk-in wardrobe and dressing room has to be seen to be believed and features more than five meters of hanging space, 30 drawers, as well as luggage and storage space.

The opulent period-style ensuite provides the perfect addition to the master suite with the romance of its clawfoot bath, luxury of the dual head walk-in shower, floor-to-ceiling tiling with underfloor heating, elegant dual countertop basins and high tech twin vanity mirrors with touch activation for lighting and heating.

The home's other three bedrooms are also generously-proportioned and feature plush carpet to the floors, built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans with light fittings, are well as plenty of period trimmings.

Two of the bedrooms feature magnificent cast iron fireplaces with timber mantels and tiled hearths, with built-in bookcases on either side of one of these making this room an ideal formal lounge area if the additional sleeping space isn't required.

The main bathroom has also been beautifully styled with Federation era features and a striking two-person clawfoot bath, while a third toilet is included in the oversized and well-appointed laundry, which is accessible via the rear verandah.

Lush established gardens and a beautiful inground, self-cleaning swimming pool will be sure to impress when you head outside to take in the features of this double-size parcel of land, while the expansive covered alfresco areas ensure this home is ideal for entertaining.

The tranquil backyard has a beautiful cottage-garden feel, with bamboo and timber panels, higher fencing and manicured hedges for additional privacy, while established raised vegetable gardens, a range of lemon, lime and orange trees as well as a macadamia tree provide a bountiful crop for garden lovers.

The property features ample secure shedding, with the original double car garage converted to a single car, studio and workshop, while other external features include a 6.6KW solar system, 450L Sola tube hot water system and two 4500L water tanks.

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, 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 is a 15 minute drive.
