SUPER-SIZED FOR EXTENDED & LARGE FAMILIES
A magnificent house for the largest of families, this stunning Windella property offers a slice of semi-rural life just 15 minutes from the thriving centre of Maitland.
Set on a manicured one-acre block (4001sqm) surrounded by other rural lifestyle properties, the home ticks all the boxes for those looking for plenty of space inside and out with six bedrooms and a study (or seventh bedroom), three bathrooms and expansive outdoor entertaining areas.
The original one-storey home was built more than 35 years ago but has been completely remodelled and renovated, while the second level was added in 2010 to create additional sleeping accommodation including a new master suite.
The home has a versatile floor plan, which offers both privacy and connectivity across different zones, with the option to utilise a self-contained space on the lower level for extended family. This area includes a bedroom, living space, kitchenette and bathroom, with its own external access doors to both the front and rear of the house.
There are two other good-sized bedrooms downstairs, including the original master bedroom and a room that could be used as either a study or additional sleeping accommodation, while a staircase just inside the front entry door leads up to the four remaining bedrooms, including the new master suite.
An impressive room with sliding door access to the vast tiled balcony, the master suite offers a true parents’ retreat with a large walk-in wardrobe and luxurious ensuite concealed behind triple frosted glass sliding doors. Large format tiles and twin showerheads inject a sense of glamour into the space, while underfloor heating and a large vanity with plenty of underbench storage add a practical touch.
The upstairs balcony is also accessible via a cosy sunroom, the perfect place to curl up with a good book and enjoy the morning sun streaming through the large glass sliding door.
The balcony itself offers stunning rural views over the surrounding landscape, and the ideal place for aviation enthusiasts to enjoy the annual aerobatic airshows put on at the nearby Royal Newcastle Aero Club. A gas connection point extends the versatility of the entertaining space, with the potential to cook a barbecue on the upper balcony or install an outdoor gas heater to extend its use year-round.
A powder room and large walk-in linen cupboard add to the practicality of the upstairs extension, which can be effectively closed off from the rest of the house for added peace and privacy thanks to an internal door near the bottom of the staircase.
The main bathroom is located on the lower level in the central hallway, with a practical three-way design ideal for large families. It includes a corner spa bath and large shower recess in one section, while across the hall there is a sleek twin basin vanity and large frameless mirror, as well as a separate toilet.
The nearby laundry is a modern, practical space, with built-in cabinetry and a laundry chute that connects to the master bedroom on the second floor. The laundry also includes external access to the rear deck.
The main entry point to the deck however comes via the timber French doors in the open plan kitchen, providing a seamless indoor-outdoor flow ideal for entertaining.
The gourmet kitchen was installed in 2010 and features Porcelain gloss cabinetry, a granite-look laminate benchtop and overhead cupboards with frosted glass doors, which create a clean, contemporary look with a touch of classic country styling.
A huge pantry, drawer storage design and practical prep cupboard ideal for hiding away your appliances add to the practicality of the layout, while a large window at one end and the nearby French doors ensure the kitchen is a light, bright space.
The kitchen flows through to the adjoining open plan dining and living room, with polished hardwood blackbutt floorboards throughout creating a seamless connection between the downstairs living areas.
An expansive rear timber deck featuring external fans, provides additional living space with views over the landscaped backyard, while the detached four-car garage also includes an insulated room with both carpet and floorboards which is currently being used as a home gym.
The home’s extension and renovation have been carefully crafted with an impeccable attention to detail, with everything from acoustic floor insulation to minimise the noise transference between the upper and lower levels, to the ability to run the house on town or tank water for added cost effectiveness.
The property’s long list of inclusions continues outside, with two 20,000L water tanks, fully irrigated gardens, an enclosed vegetable patch, large chicken coop and secure boundary with dog proof fencing and an automatic opening front gate.
Set in the peaceful semi-rural surrounds of Windella just 15 minutes from the shops, cafes and sporting facilities of central Maitland, and five minutes from quality schools in neighbouring suburbs, this magnificent property is ideal for large families looking for their forever home with plenty of space to enjoy.
