Whether you're looking for a period home or searching for the perfect business space or both, this beautiful circa 1870-1880 property situated in East Maitland's bustling CBD is not to be missed. With five bedrooms come offices, two large living/communal spaces, an arbour garden plus four parking bays accessed via Myra Street, it's a real find.
The house has a rich and varied history, with many owners over the years. Now having been recently refitted, refurbished and rewired, it's eagerly awaiting its next loving owner.
Edged by decorative sidelights, with the aboriginal name 'Murragumbah' proudly displayed on a glass panel above, the property's grand front door delivers impact on arrival. Its freshly painted weatherboard façade and planted front yard increase the curb appeal, while the wrap-around Merbau verandah is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by.
Step inside and you're greeted by a beautiful entryway complete with white walls, high ceilings, a decorative archway, and ornate plasterwork. Other character features include original Australian hardwood timber floors, restored fireplaces, high skirts and picture rails, sash windows and panel doors with rim locks.
Many of the spaces have restored and painted timber ceilings. The main living space also has charming French doors leading out to the verandah.
Two of the bedrooms or office spaces sit at the front of the property, another in the middle. A further pair can be found at the back along with a good-sized kitchen complete with an original wood stove, as well as a large, retro bathroom and access to the 504sqm yard.
Additional features include three split-system air units, plus hand basins in each of the front rooms – ideal if you're planning on running a medical practice from here. The house is also close to East Maitland's medical precinct and new hospital.
