Retro Home Ready To Remove Or Renovate


Positioned on a corner block, this large two-bedroom brick home presents attractive opportunities to move in and renovate or redevelop (STCA) in one of Newcastle’s most accessible suburbs. Side street entry with wide frontage, combined with an exceptional location only minutes’ walk from cafes, grocers and local amenities further add to its appeal. If it’s a day at the beach you seek, an eight-minute drive will have you enjoying the sun, sand and surf. And, for a night out in town, a bus stop across the road or the nearby train station will take you directly into Newcastle CBD.

The house itself is a well-preserved step back in time to an era when large rooms featured, and luxe fabric coated everything from the walls to the kitchen bench. Upstairs the enormous living area opens outwards to a covered front balcony and again inwards to the dining and extra-large kitchen with walk-in pantry. A huge main bedroom also faces the balcony and down the hall you’ll find the main bathroom and a second bedroom as well as plenty of storage space. A separate laundry and enclosed rear patio complete the upstairs living spaces. Downstairs is a tandem garage, second bathroom and abundant space for additional living, working or entertaining.

As the gateway to inner suburban Newcastle, Adamstown is a much sought after neighbourhood hosting highly regarded schools, parklands and is a well-known starting point for the popular Fernleigh Track. The nearby train will take you into Newcastle CBD or down the line to Sydney and, with the city’s best assets within easy reach, a five minute drive will take you shopping at Westfield Kotara, dining on Beaumont Street and have you enjoying the picturesque trails of Glenrock Reserve. With so much to offer, this property will capture the attention of investors, developers and renovators alike.
