180 Degree Views from Merewether Beach, Bar Beach to City


Auction Location: Fort Scratchley Function Centre | 1/3 Nobbys Road, Newcastle East NSW 2300

Beautiful and iconic, this Merewether House exudes charm and sophistication, a true reflection of its storied past. Nestled on an elevated 640.5sqm block, the home boasts 180-degree views of Merewether, Bar Beach and the city that are just as captivating during the day as they are enchanting at night. Recently restored and enhanced with a keen eye for luxury and comfort, no expense was spared in bringing this Federation beauty into the modern era creating a space that is both timeless and inviting.

That essence of elegant living radiates throughout the intricately detailed interior with 10ft plaster ceilings – some of which are delicately designed – leadlight glass windows, two cast iron fireplaces, and a simply beautiful and totally bespoke whisky room complete with original 1910 whisky cabinet.

Spread across formal and casual living areas, four bedrooms plus a bonus office, and three bathrooms, there's plenty of space for the whole family to carve out their own zones. The magnificent wrap-around verandah catches the ocean breeze and magical sunrises and sunsets, making it the ultimate spot for family enjoyment or hosting gatherings with friends.

Nestled at the heart of the home is a spectacular kitchen featuring a waterfall marble countertop and top of the line appliances. Mealtimes turn into magic moments in the conservatory dining area, offering panoramic views, and topped off with a show-stopping turret and chandelier straight out of a period drama. As for the master suite, it's a retreat within a retreat complete with a sky-lit sitting area with bar, TV, and sound system as well as walk-in wardrobe and ensuite featuring Italian tiles, double vanity, and a wet room with separate standalone bath. Plus, you've got exclusive access to the plunge pool—because why not?

And while you may never want to leave this truly beautiful home the superb location provides everything on your family's wish list. Grab your board and towel and ride your bike or drive down to the beach for an early morning surf or a swim in the ocean baths. Change up the scenery and head to harbourside Honeysuckle in just 10 minutes drive. You'll love the 1300m level stroll to The Junction precinct's lively shopping and dining scene. And medical staff from nearby Lingard Private Hospital will never tire of the four minute drive to work.

Merewether House has a long history as a place to entertain having played host to high-standing local dignitaries during its lifetime. It was also reportedly once the residence of former Mayor of Newcastle, John Christian Reid. Now, it's your turn to take the reins as the fortunate new custodian of this remarkable home, ready to embrace its history and luxuries.
