Smartly renovated classic, moments to the water


Auction Location: In Rooms – 2/16 Telford Street, Newcastle East & Live via Buy.Realtair.com

Lovingly held by the same family since the late 1950s, this classic Carrington weatherboard home was passed down from grandmother to granddaughter in 2009, when it underwent a contemporary renovation enhanced by further improvements a few years later. Today it presents as a home for a 21st century family with an open plan design, indoor/outdoor flow to a deck for alfresco entertaining, and a double garage accessed via the rear lane, currently used as a brilliant extra living and entertaining space. Lovely, wide Forbes Street offers almost instant access to all the waterside activities on Throsby Creek.

The living areas have been opened up to incorporate the island kitchen, with a servery window and a sliding door offering seamless connection to the large, covered deck, a fabulous area to host family and friends against a backdrop of northerly sunshine. Inside the converted garage, find power, a/c, gas heating, vinyl plank flooring, and handy storage. Offering plenty of room for use as a quiet disruption-free space to work from home, a teen retreat or entertainment room, it will be a simple fix to re-configure this back to a large garage if you wish.

Wander a few steps to the end of the street and jump onto the Throsby walking and cycle path offering a pleasant waterside stroll or bike ride all the way to Nobbys Beach. On the way you can stop off for coffee or dining at the Boatshed Café, Newcastle Yacht Club or any number of eateries and bars at Honeysuckle. Your dog can run around at the off-leash park, and if a bit of water fun is your thing, launch the paddleboard with ease or join Newcastle Rowing Club, which is little more than a few strides away.
