Classic character and modern style


This gorgeous home is a beautiful blend of divine heritage features and a sophisticated modern renovation. Two fabulous fireplaces, soaring ceilings and French doors are some of the examples of the classic beauty of the home, while a stunning contemporary kitchen brings this elegant property into the modern era.

A sultry renovation with dark timber floorboards, a statement barn door, custom cabinetry framing the heritage fireplace and a stylish bathroom and laundry, has given this grand home a modern facelift while retaining its charm. If it gets a little chilly, curl up on the couch in front of a crackling fire in the tiled Federation-era fireplace – the double brick of this solid home, built in 1889, will help retain the heat. The kitchen overlooks a delicious vege, herb and citrus garden, through an oversized picture window which brings the outside in and makes the most of Newcastle's stunning sunshine. The renovation of the kitchen, bathroom and laundry is sympathetic to the era of the home boasting subway tiles and period tapware, but modern black and timber-look cabinetry heralds the now. It will be hard to choose which bedroom to call the master – one boasts its own ensuite and front balcony, while a second opens onto an even larger balcony with cityscape views across the harbour.

Carrington is a vibrant suburb, just a few minutes from the city, but with a low-rise vibe and plenty of parks and playing fields. It is truly coming into its own, with funky cafes and eclectic retail starting to take hold. It also borders gentrifying Wickham and Tighes Hill and is a hop skip and a jump – or at least a quick bike ride – from the inner city retail and dining hubs of Honeysuckle and the Newcastle CBD itself.
