Nestled near the banks of the Hunter River, this circa 1900 cottage is ready to renovate and packed with period charm.
From its gorgeous weatherboard facade, complete with quaint front verandah with decorative fretwork, to the soaring, decorative ceilings and floorboards this cottage has solid bones to work with.
It also offers picture rails, leadlight windows and a feature fireplace with timber mantelpiece, in the living room.
Set on a 934sqm block there’s also plenty of room to extend or develop (STCA) if you choose.
The property is also perfectly located in a leafy locale just a short walk from the Maitland CBD and all it has to offer, including shops and eateries.
Framed with a well established front garden, the home initially features a traditional layout with a wide entry hall, with decorative cornices and pendant lighting, welcoming you to the home.
There are four bedrooms at the front of the home, all of which have built-in robes, while the fourth bedroom has the added feature of pressed metal ceilings.
The living room has a light, fresh colour scheme, split-system heating and cooling and a graceful, timeless elegance and ambience you only find in period homes.
The property also offers a separate formal dining room with gleaming polished floorboards and ornate pressed metal ceiling, creating the perfect space for family dinners or more formal dinner parties.
The kitchen is spacious and offers the opportunity to dine-in, while a stainless steel dishwasher and 900mm upright oven, with gas cooktop, cater for modern tastes.
What would have once been the rear verandah has been enclosed to create a sitting room, with statement, leadlight windows among the features.
The home offers one bathroom with a shower above the bath, separate toilet and a separate laundry.
Entertaining is catered for on the covered rear deck, which has a ramp leading down to the full fenced backyard, which is largely a blank canvas for new owners to with what they please.
Horseshoe Bend is also close to East Maitland and Morpeth, as well as Stockland Greenhills Shopping Centre, Maitland Public School and Hunter Valley Grammar School.
