Make the most of the lovely original features on offer to restore this home to its former glory and capitalise on its prime position in the heart of historic Morpeth.

With a long 733.5sqm corner block and the advantage of three street frontages including side and rear lane access, the property offers plenty of potential.

The home was built in 1920 and sits on a brick foundation, with a weatherboard and iron roof construction that creates a charming, cottage-style façade.

A brick path leads to an elevated bullnose verandah, which provides a traditional welcome to this home while also giving you a shady spot to sit and watch the world go by.

The solid timber door with its original stained glass panels provide a fitting entry into the home, while a decorative archway leading into the living area introduces you to the period detailing contained throughout.

The home's original features are among its main assets, offering a glimpse into the era in which it was built and reflecting the overall heritage nature of the suburb.

Pressed metal ceilings and decorative cornices offer a delicately beautiful touch in the hallway and living area, complementing the feature dado panels and vintage pendant light.

An intricately carved timber mantlepiece and tiled hearth surround the original cast iron fireplace, creating a focal point in the living room, while French doors leading into an adjoining sunroom add to the character of the space.

Timber strapping on various ceilings and pictures rails on the walls echo the period ambience on show throughout the home, while hardwood timber floorboards provide texture and character in the bedrooms.

The home has three good-sized bedrooms including an elongated master, which are all located towards the front of the home with access to the hallway and main living area.

The open plan kitchen, living and dining space is located at the rear of the home, with a Masport combustion fireplace ensuring this area is cosy and inviting in the cooler months.

The large kitchen has a spacious feel, with cabinetry running along two walls to promote a seamless flow into the adjoining living and dining zones.

The rear of the home also features a main bathroom with separate toilet for added practicality and the potential to renovate this space into an expansive luxury retreat, while there is also a spacious laundry and adjoining back room that offer further potential for rejigging the layout.

An undercover area with roll-down blinds attached to the rear of the home provides a year-round outdoor space for entertaining overlooking, while the backyard also features a large shed with additional workshop space and an attached carport, providing plenty of accommodation for all your vehicles and tools.

The property is ideally located in the hearty of the riverside village of Morpeth, popular for its mix of old world charm, heritage architecture and cobblestone laneways, where you'll discover hidden gems in antique stores, art galleries and boutiques.

While away the afternoon in one of the riverside coffee shops or historic pubs or spend your spare time on the water alongside recreational fisherman, kayakers or tourists taking a leisurely cruise along the scenic Hunter River.

Morpeth is also home to a range of essential services including a small supermarket, medical centre and primary school, with playgrounds and sporting facilities scattered throughout the suburb.

The thriving hub of East Maitland is less than 10 minutes away with its shopping strips on Lawes and Melbourne streets, while a short drive up the New England Highway will deliver you to the retail and entertainment destination of Stockland Green Hills Shopping Centre.

The redeveloped Levee in nearby central Maitland is fast developing into a foodie's paradise with a growing mix of cafes, restaurants and craft beer bars, while the gourmet delights of the Hunter Valley vineyards and the beachside lifestyle of Newcastle are only 40 minutes away.
