Private character-filled family home with teenager's retreat

4 2 1

This classic 1920s family home has been lovingly renovated to embrace timeless characteristics and combine them with a modern lifestyle. Vintage-style glass, sash windows and an embellished fireplace are just some of the elements reminiscent of the era which have been meticulously restored and maintained. Traditionally high ceilings flow throughout the old and the new providing a harmonic blend with revived original floorboards on show.

Seclusion and privacy are common themes throughout the property. Lunch can be enjoyed undisturbed on the undercover balcony in the treetops with its dual access and servery. Spend quality time with family and friends in the sheltered, level yard complete with established greenery, succulent garden and chook pen. The inground pool, with its accompanying outdoor shower and water feature, is also set down from the extra high fence line providing seclusion.

Inside, recent modifications add a clever use of existing and newly created layout. The redesign of space to incorporate a butler's pantry is ingenious and extends the kitchen to provide extra benchtops, a servery and drinks station. At the rear of the home, a self-contained extension connects to a spacious deck, and encompasses a living area, bedroom and ensuite. A fantastic option for a separate teenagers retreat or guest accommodation. Additional internal access to the garage and workshop is also a thoughtful feature.

For hobbyists or those who work from home, this home offers the perfect setup with its substantial storage and workspaces. Centrally located nearby Merewether Golf course, the Junction shopping centre, Newcastle CBD and its popular beaches, public transport and a great selection of schools.
