Regal style family home on an extra large block in the centre of town


Prepare to be enchanted by the regal style of this large family home, featuring generously spaced rooms throughout and characterised by finely crafted, ornate joinery and detailed lead-light glass wherever you look.

Built by the proprietors of a local foundry in the 1940s, this quality-built testament to a long-gone era has only ever had two owners. You now have the opportunity to be the third. It was last on the market in 1963!

Sitting peacefully well back from the street, partly obscured by small trees and manicured azaleas, you will approach your home via a curved footpath to a bold, semi-enclosed, Spanish-style verandah. Walking through the timber and lead-light double doors into the lobby, you will be instantly enamoured by the large bay window and royal ambience of the lounge room, with solid timber framing and overhead beams, lush floor coverings and high ceilings. A gas heater built into the old fireplace will keep you warm on those fresh nights.

This spacious lounge leads into the dining room, which is framed by two chunky timber pillars atop lead-light storage cabinets. Featuring a timber framed service window, this is a cosy, intimate dining and entertaining space for family and friends.

The large, original kitchen has enough room for another informal dining table and comes complete with dishwasher, gas cooktop and oven, stainless steel benchtops, ample storage and an old fireplace that has been smartly converted into a pantry.

A walk down the hallway leads to three generously sized bedrooms with floral-design carpet throughout. A large bay window in the master bedroom adds to the elegant ambience of these deep sleep spaces.

The ample-sized bathroom/toilet features tiling throughout, a vintage wash basin and a shower over the bathtub.

At the rear of the house, an enclosed sun room (part of the original build) is where you will share that nice, warm cuppa with a book or a friend. Walking out the back door into the sunshine, you will be amazed by the sheer size of the backyard, much bigger than the surrounding blocks, with enough room for the kids to have endless adventures. And with a thoughtful balance of trees, shrubs, plants and grass, your very own piece of parkland is relatively easy to maintain. The entire footprint of the property is a whopping 1162 square metres.

Your cherished automobile will be protected from the weather in the semi-enclosed carport adjacent to the house. Or drive further into the backyard and into the single garage - complete with its own toolshed and toilet. Man-cave anyone? There is also an old double garage way back at the rear of the property. The possible uses of this structure are endless.

Centrally positioned, directly across the road from Maitland High School and very close to other schools, the location of this property is to be envied. In just a few minutes you can walk to the golf club for a swing or to the Village Walk Shopping Centre for milk. The larger Stockland Green Hill Shopping Centre is just five minutes by car.
