Renovators dream!

Superbly positioned just a 250-metre stroll from the heart of Morpeth’s historic township, with its cafes and boutique shops, this charming 1930s-built cottage has been extended to maintain its original features. Encompassing a 700 sqm block, this property is a rare and versatile find in a such a tightly held area.

This single level, three-bedroom cottage showcases a clad exterior with the original weatherboard retained underneath. It’s pretty street facade and well-established gardens are an undeniable drawcard and once inside, the character on offer continues.

A fully functional, original fireplace warms the main loungeroom, while a pot belly stove in the kitchen adjacent reminisces a bygone era. The home’s three bedrooms are located off the hallway on entry to the property, each with its own unique detail of timber-lined walls and coloured glass windowpanes.

The home’s dining area adjoins the kitchen, with a more recent brick extension which adds an additional living area, complete with slate tile floors.

Decorative metal-pressed high ceilings, antique pendant lights, solid timber floors and a brand-new air-conditioning unit in the lounge are just some of the elements on offer inside.

Outdoors, the front porch makes for a perfect vista to take in the township, and pavers are utilised to great effect for paths surrounding the home, the driveway and a sun-drenched entertaining area to rear.

A brand new single garage is set back from the road, enabling off-street parking for multiple vehicles on the drive. An elevated and level back lawn area is complemented by large trees and hedging plants, including orange, lemon and Frangipani trees.

Neatly framed by its white picket fence, the house is positioned between Morpeth’s River Royal Inn and another, single level commercial building for boutique shops or businesses.

This property’s appeal is as diverse as its prospects; it’s in walking distance of all amenities and has abundant potential for further renovation. Being so well positioned near other local businesses, it would also be well suited to an astute investor in need of a business premises or looking for a holiday let.

Situated only a 400-metre walk from Morpeth Public School, 450-metres from the local supermarket, and across the road from the Hunter River, 95 Swan Street is a must see.
