At a glance:

A timeless brick veneer and tile build surrounded by lush lawns and mature gardens, with slate tiles, fresh paint, new downlighting and carpets, and exposed brick flowing throughout the interior.

"We really love how the home flows out to the undercover entertaining area, as well as the close proximity to the local shopping centre and schools."

Nestled in a quiet pocket in the heart of family-friendly Thornton. Walk just 3 minutes to access the local park, playground, and shopping centre, or hop in the car to reach Stockland Green Hills in 10 minutes, Maitland CBD in 16, and Newcastle's pristine coastline and bustling CBD in 34.

The property:

Enjoy modern comforts in this quiet residential pocket to Thornton's centre, and benefit from all the Hunter Valley has to offer with its easy access to both Maitland and Newcastle, as well as the picturesque Hunter Valley wine region.

Sitting on a generous 761sqm corner block with plenty of space to the rear, 1 Blakewell Road boasts an attached four-car garage, an updated interior, and a sunny outdoor entertaining pad overlooking a large, lush backyard.

The home presents neatly from the front with its brick and tile build and healthy lawn, with mature gardens and hedging working with the Colorbond fencing to shroud the majority of the block in privacy.

Inside, a master suite sits at the front of the home, offering carpets underfoot for those cold mornings, green views through the eastern window, as well as direct access to the main bathroom to offer a little more privacy and flow to your morning and evening routines.

Opposite this room lies a carpeted lounge that will host countless movie marathons and Netflix nights, and also provide a relaxing place to catch up with a morning coffee or afternoon drink as the first and last light filters through the wide windows. This living area wraps around the corner toward a dedicated dining area, allowing both spaces to exist independent of one another while still encouraging connection.

Central to the floorplan lies a well-appointed kitchen on slate tile flooring, offering the busy chef a recessed fridge space, Westinghouse appliances, and ample cabinetry to keep the stone countertops clutter-free. One side of this countertop overextends to provide a convenient breakfast bar for those busy weekday mornings getting the kids to school, or to socialise and prepare meals and refreshments simultaneously.

An open plan living and dining area extends from the kitchen on the same smooth slate tiling, creating the opportunity to create the second dining or living space or your choosing, while the glass windows and sliding doors to the rear keep the area feeling bright and open.

The two remaining bedrooms sit with a good amount of separation from the master thanks to a thoughtful design, with built-ins to one bedroom and brand-new ceiling fans and downlights to each.

Step outside to find a stunning undercover alfresco that will create an excellent place for the whole family (and plus-ones) to enjoy outdoor meals while overlooking the lush rear yard that the kids, fur-kids, and resident green-thumb will absolutely adore.

It comes as no surprise that the current owners love this alfresco and how it couples with the second living space to create an unbeatable entertaining area, which has created countless priceless moments and special memories over the years.

Other notable features of this value-packed property include a rooftop solar system to mitigate those rising utilities, a mature mango tree for a tropical touch to the summer fruit bowl, and boxed garden beds that could be used to keep the kitchen stocked with seasonal produce year-round.

This quiet pocket of Thornton offers easy access to Stockland Green Hills and Maitland's Heritage Mall in just 10 and 16 minutes respectively, and a 34-minute drive will see you to Newcastle's pristine coastline and busy CBD.

Weekends can be spent exploring the rest of the Hunter, with historic Morpeth and the Hunter Valley wine region just 12 and 32 minutes away respectively.

Enjoy a slice of quiet, residential living in this modern Blakewell Road home, while still having excellent access to all the essentials and the Hunter Valley's most exciting recreational offerings.
