Inner-City Lifestyle Meets Cute Cottage Living
Auction Location: Fort Scratchley Function Centre – 1/3 Nobbys Rd, Newcastle East NSW 2300
Discover why Maryville is the hipster's paradise of inner-city Newcastle in this charming 1920's cottage that has been recently updated on the inside. Enjoy your morning coffee from Baked Uprising, arguably Newcastle's best bakery and coffee spot, a 30-second walk around the corner from your front door and enjoy the natural splendour of the city with the harbour moments away. The single-level property is surprisingly spacious considering its inner-city location, with three double bedrooms, ample living spaces and a generous backyard. The cottage has a retreat-type atmosphere, a relaxing sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of the area. This could easily be a family home or suitable for a young professional couple with future family plans, as there are several reputable primary schools nearby including Tighes Hill Public School, Carrington Public School and Islington Public School. Islington Park, a multi-use park incorporating play equipment, ovals, a dog park and more, is a short walk down Throsby Creek Track, providing ample option for weekend activities.
Entering the property to a sunroom/enclosed front deck, you're instantly met with charm and ample natural light. The property has original wooden flooring and exceedingly high ceilings, a testament to the time of its construction. The bedrooms are at the front of the property, all spacious, air conditioned and able to accommodate double beds, with the master having a walk-in-dressing room. There are two living spaces in this home, with the first having a slightly more formal atmosphere. It has beautiful exposed wooden bannisters across the ceiling, a large window, and a statement pendant light, creating a modern feel in a classical build. Through a large open archway is the open plan dining and kitchen area, featuring an original combustion fireplace and direct alfresco access through double doors overlooking the backyard and outdoor entertaining area. The kitchen is well appointed, spacious and features a gas stove top.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the large family bathroom, with separate wash closet, bath with overhead shower and room for laundry facilities.
Leading from the kitchen is the secondary living space, with large windows allowing for the space to be brightly lit and airy. It has a statement pendant light and lovely views into the backyard and really enhances the retreat-like feel of the property. There is another door here where you're able to access the backyard with a great wooden back deck backing onto the dining room's double doors. You could easily create an ideal indoor/outdoor entertainment and dining space here, perfect for hosting people before heading into the city by foot for dinner or drinks. The deck leads down to a further covered entertaining area, really reinforcing the fact this home is great for parties or hosting family functions. The garden is established and low maintenance, with striking black Colourbond fencing and a garden shed, perfect for extra storage. The backyard is secure and fully enclosed, making it ideal for pets or children.
This property is truly charming, set in an ideal location for those wanting to enjoy the best of the inner city whilst still experiencing the natural beauty of the harbour and Throsby Creek Track. It is move-in ready, but still offers potential for further updates and scope to add more value to a consistently economically increasing neighbourhood.
