Elegant heritage-style entertainer

If you're looking for beautiful heritage details, a sympathetic modern extension and a lush private garden, this stunning Morpeth property is the one for you.

Set on a wide tree-lined street in the heart of the historic riverside village, this wonderful property offers character, charm and an abundance of entertaining space, with open plan living areas and an expansive covered alfresco area overlooking the resort-style inground pool.

Mature hedges, sandstone edged garden beds bursting with agapanthus and large feature trees create an elegant first impression, with a cobbled brick pathway leading up to a private covered front porch.

The freshly repainted colour palette of cream and green adds to the home's traditional appeal, with painted timber shutters and timber decking complementing the heritage-style ambience.

The period detailing continues inside the home with an abundance of original features, from the wide plank polished hardwood floorboards to the decorative cornices, detailed ceiling plasterwork and dado rails.

Built in 1857 and beautifully restored, the home combines understated glamour with cosy homeliness, enhanced by the high ceilings, ornate cast iron fireplaces and the warm, resonant tones of the cedar mantelpieces, skirting boards and architraves.

Exposed brick walls add a touch of rustic texture to several rooms, with a pressed metal ceiling in the formal living area and vintage-style pendant lights carrying the period ambience throughout the original section of the house.

The antique styling continues in the family bathroom, where a timber vanity, vintage floor tiles and a luxurious freestanding clawfoot bath set the scene, while a lovely bay window over the kitchen sink and charming arched window in the adjoining meals area flood this space with character and natural light.

A separate powder adds to the family-friendliness of this property's design, which features three good-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a cosy formal living room in the front section of the home and a large fourth bedroom, expansive open plan living spaces and a generously-proportioned country-style timber kitchen in the rear.

The rear rooms are contained within a modern extension that was added onto the original building in the late 1990s, featuring a clean, sympathetic style that seamlessly blends the old with the new in the spacious light-filled living area.

A bi-fold door with stained glass panel adds character to the fourth bedroom, which is accessible via this rear living space, making it the ideal location for a teenager or guest accommodation.

For those looking for modern amenities alongside the period detailing, this home has got you covered, from remote-controlled ceiling fans and split system air conditioning to quality Westinghouse appliances in the kitchen.

The property is also perfect for those who love to entertain, with the internal accommodation wrapping around an expansive alfresco area that incorporated a huge 11m-long covered timber deck overlooking the resort-style inground pool and spa.

With more than enough room to host the largest family gathering, the alfresco area greatly extends the property's usable year-round living space, with three access doors connecting it to different parts of the home.

Additional external space can be enjoyed at the rear of the home, where a lush, landscaped garden creates a private, fully fenced oasis for children to enjoy.

A garden shed, chicken coop, fenced dog house and timber swing add to the appeal of the backyard, while a separate cladded garage and wide driveway provide plenty of secure undercover and additional off-street parking.

Ideally located within easy walking distance of the village centre, the property is perfect for those who enjoy spending their leisure time wandering Morpeth's cobblestone laneways, browsing through the eclectic boutiques, art galleries and specialty stores and enjoying a cold drink or a bite to eat at one of the gourmet cafes or historic pubs that line the main street.

While Morpeth is a mecca for tourists, the suburb is also ideal for families or those looking for a quiet village life, offering 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 Hunter's key attractions including the beaches of Newcastle, the cellar doors and restaurants of Pokolbin and the waterways of Lake Macquarie are all within a half-hour drive.
