Tucked away behind mature trees, among predominantly European gardens, this charming, premium property is waiting to be discovered.

Emerging through the greenery is a grand colonial style, brick and tiled roof two storey residence: a popular style among affluent families circa 1970. Key features such as the travertine edged 11m in-ground concrete pool, triple garage and, for guests, a separate semi-circular gravel driveway bordered by rose gardens. These quality features distinguish this homes calibre from more conventional dwellings.

Built for the owner of iconic Maitland mainstay, 'Ken Lanes Menswear', the property reflects astute attention to detail and an appreciation for fine living. Spacious interiors with high ceilings are bathed in natural light from North-facing bay windows, framing leafy garden scenes.

Offering both formal entertaining and casual living areas downstairs, the composition is versatile with the ability to accommodate a modern family's lifestyle. The formal, entry foyer with closet divides the front North-facing space with glazed sliding doors on each side to enclose the lounge and dining room which is ideal in winter to retain warmth from the large, open fire.

Overlooking the pool and surrounding landscaped area to the rear are the family living rooms and amenities. The central, modern kitchen has been refurbished and would appeal to any keen entertainer. A 900mm gas cooktop on 'U' shaped black granite benchtop is next to the wall oven for practical access. Abundant storage capacity is afforded with a walk-in pantry, overhead and underbench cabinetry and a convenient benchtop hutch containing those everyday items within easy reach. Close proximity to the dining room makes catering for dinner parties or functions effortless.

A raised verandah extends along the homes rear. A set of bi-parting sliding doors open the sitting room, connecting indoor and outdoor spaces. This large room has built-in timber display shelving and lower cabinetry to one end and an adjacent powder room for visitors. The large laundry with built-in work bench and a row of built-in cupboards is on the other side of the kitchen, adjacent to a private study.

Another large, informal entertaining area, with a great vintage atmosphere, overlooks the Eastern gardens, through sets of sliding glass doors. White washed brick walls lead to an upper loft space creating a 'converted warehouse-like' environment. This would be any teenager's or adult childrens dream retreat. A combustion fire warms the entire area effectively. The brick and tiled benchtop bar cleverly reflects light, making this a social hub for friendly gatherings. A generously proportioned loft provides a multipurpose room suitable for a yoga/meditation, childrens playroom or more storage. Everything has been carefully considered prior to installation to obtain maximum benefit. This residence is a masterpiece in efficiency.

The upper level is reserved for quiet bedrooms and is serviced by a central bathroom with separate toilet. The master bedroom, across the upper Eastern side is completed by a spacious, versatile dressing room connecting the ensuite. Built-in cabinetry and hanging space wrapping around two walls, with enough room to house a sizable, clothing collection. Of the additional three bedrooms, two are very large and are comfortably able to fit study desks and other furniture. All possess walk-in or built-in robes and impressive views in every direction are captured through broad windows. This impressive home seems to have it all.

The dwelling was built at a time when real craftsmanship in construction was applied and has since stood the test of time. Features such as ducted inverter air-conditioning, heated towel racks, a 20kW solar panel roof system and solar hot water are modern additions for ultimate comfort and efficiency. Security is assured with modern window locks and security doors installed.

Several sheds and green-houses provide space to store equipment required to maintain the lawns, flower and vegetable gardens, orchard and propagation activities. Irrigation to a number of vegetable plots and the orchard is installed. If you have a green thumb or enjoy growing your own food, then you must see this property. All the establishment work has already been done. All thats left to do is to harvest fresh food and enjoy it.

This desirable Windella address is only a short drive from the renowned Hunter Valley Wine Country. Local access to the Hunter Expressway has improved region connectivity and reduced travel time. The M1 Motorway links to Sydney in approximately 2 hours and Newcastle in 50 minutes. To be recognised in its entirety, this property must be inspected to be fully appreciated. It is available and ready to move straight into.
