BLANK CANVAS WITH PLENTY OF PRIVACY
Charming and versatile, the family-friendly layout and light, bright interior of this lovely Gillieston Heights home offers plenty of potential.
Situated on a generously-sized 809sqm block, the classic brick and tile home was built in 1985 but has been freshened up to appeal to a modern buyer.
Polished timber flooring and plush grey carpet create a warm and welcoming interior throughout, while a gas fireplace gives the large lounge room a comfortable, cosy ambience.
The living area flows through to the open plan dining room and kitchen at the rear of the house, which overlooks the large rear deck and lush, landscaped backyard.
The practical u-shaped kitchen offers plenty of storage space with a corner pantry and both underbench and overhead cupboards, while the crisp, white cabinetry, white tiled splashback and large windows give the space a fresh, bright feel.
A central hallway leads past the laundry to the home’s three bedrooms.
Built-in wardrobes provide ample storage space in the bedrooms, while plush grey carpet offers a comfortable surface underfoot. The bedrooms all include combination ceiling fans with lights to create a cooler environment more conducive to sleeping, while the main bedroom also features an air conditioning unit.
Black floor and wall tiles and a contemporary, white vanity give the bathroom a dramatic, modern look, while a separate toilet is a practical design feature for families.
The home really comes into its own however when you step outside into the large landscaped backyard.
An expansive timber deck accessible via the laundry provides the perfect place to sit back and watch the kids play on the lush, manicured lawn, which seems to stretch on forever towards the rear Colorbond fence.
The yard is fully secure and perfect for pets, while established trees along the rear and side boundaries create a perfectly private oasis without blocking out the lovely rural views to the west.
A Colorbond shed on a concrete slab offers plenty of space for your gardening equipment or outdoor toys, while an extra-long, single width carport with lockable gates to one side of the house provides additional storage space and covered car accommodation.
The property is ideally located in the booming suburb of Gillieston Heights, which was once a quiet, semi-rural town but has expanded rapidly in recent years with the development of several residential estates.
The suburb is popular with families and offers several neighbourhood parks and sporting fields as well as a charming local public primary school, while a small general store on the main road provides essential everyday items.
More varied shopping options can be found in the nearby urban centre of Maitland, which offers several shopping centres, numerous supermarkets, a strong commercial precinct and a revitalised city centre with a growing number of boutique retailers.
The Levee redevelopment, which runs parallel to the Hunter River along the main street of Maitland, is also gaining a growing reputation as a culinary hot spot with a diverse range of cafes, restaurants, craft beer bars and revamped pubs.
Maitland is home to a wide range of first class sporting facilities, parks and playgrounds including the recently redeveloped Maitland Sportsground complex, while numerous art galleries, museums and other cultural attractions complement the town’s reputation as a heritage destination.
With so much on offer right at its doorstep and the space, privacy and potential to extend or renovate further, this property offers an ideal opportunity for first home buyers, young families or savvy investors looking to capitalise on a popular local market.
