‘Millerstone’ – A Captivating Californian Bungalow


Reminiscent of the elegant Californian bungalows found throughout Hamilton and Merewether, this double brick c.1920’s home, known as ‘Millerstone,’ was originally built for Mr ‘Kit’ Stone, a local Wallsend publican, on land purchased for 8 pounds in 1880 by Mr James Miller. Beautifully renovated throughout, it functions as a contemporary family home, yet bears the unique marks of its history.

The elegant facade entices the eyes with stunning leadlight windows and a French front door along with a traditional front verandah that’s a delightful spot to sit with the afternoon sun on your face. Inside, a central hallway showcasing timber floors and spectacular fretwork and ornate ceilings splits two huge bedrooms including a stunning master with bay window, a bathroom and a formal lounge room featuring a wood burning fire. Two additional bedrooms are served by a contemporary new bathroom, while an open plan kitchen, dining and family living area at the rear open to all-weather alfresco entertaining and level lawns.

The 731.2sqm parcel packs a punch with rear access into a triple garage and space for trampoline, while an array of fruit trees and raised garden beds promise the urban farmer a good yield.

Additional features include air-conditioning, a Ventis home ventilation system and solar electricity panels. Location is also a major drawcard, with easy access to the city and freeway and an easy stroll to Wallsend town centre, schools and local shops.
