Heritage Elegance Meets Tasteful Modern Comforts


Radiating the essence of historic Newcastle, this immaculately presented cottage elegantly fuses character, charm, and grace with tasteful contemporary updates and a functional open plan layout.

A captivating original garden, with lush camellia and murraya hedging, frames the charming facade and bids you welcome. Stepping up to the front porch – a tranquil space to start the day with your favourite cuppa – you enter via an ornate leadlight-framed front door. Inside, a wide hallway brimming with character awaits where honey polished boards complement the soaring ceilings, adorned with decorative plasterwork. This hallway reveals two expansive bedrooms – on the left, a huge master with a spacious walk-in robe and ensuite, and opposite, another large bedroom with sizeable built-in robe.

At the heart of the home, a generously proportioned, air-conditioned loungeroom showcases the best features of its era – including intricately detailed plasterwork, ceiling roses, classic cast iron fireplace with original timber mantle, and attractive dado panelling. At one end, discover a concealed study featuring a fitted desk and built-in storage, and at the other, a bright family bathroom features a corner spa.

Lastly, situated at the rear, a versatile guestroom/family room is accompanied by a modern kitchen and dining room from which elegant French doors open onto an expansive covered alfresco deck – perfect for entertaining and an ideal haven for year-round family gatherings.

The north side of the home, facing Tyrrell Street, boasts a lush lawn graced by a fragrant frangipani tree, ideal for creating a private sanctuary or safe play area for children and pets. Underneath the home, a single garage, and carport accommodates your car and offers additional under house storage.

This move-in ready, gorgeous home is situated in a central location, close to schools, childcare and a wide range of parks and playing fields. There's a lot for families to do here – it's a couple of minutes to the Tramway Track and Blue Gum Hills Park for a family day out. There's a choice of three shopping areas within a few minutes (Elermore Village, Wallsend Village, and Glendale) as well as being near the Uni and only minutes to the Link Road and Hunter Expressway.

Wallsend is one of the last inner-city suburbs where first homebuyers and young families can still afford solid character homes on decent-sized blocks. It is likely to be one of those areas where people in 2040 will say, “We should have bought in Wallsend back when it was affordable.” So don't delay – inspection highly recommended!
