Transformed into a Stylish Harbourside Retreat with Secure Off-Street Parking

In a brilliant collaboration between local businesses, Tradienetwork.com.au and The Design Project & Co, the revival of one of Carrington's classic 1920's cottages has transformed this 3-bedroom home into a stylish inner-city retreat. Original timber floors, an ornate plaster ceiling, hip rails and picture rails have been retained and pay homage to the past, while the stone-finished kitchen, frameless showers and black tapware in both bathrooms, and the addition of an alfresco entertaining deck are all desirable 21st Century features. Sweet from the street with its new Colorbond roof, freshly painted weatherboards and new picket fence and electric gate, this fabulous package is further enhanced with secure off-street parking. There's something special about living in Carrington, named by locals as 'Carrodise' for its welcoming community, laidback lifestyle and fabulous 7-minute bike ride to the harbour, city and beaches. Sitting on a spit on the opposite side of the Hunter River to the rest of Newcastle, 'island life' has its own unique vibe with a local gin distillery, a weekly 5km park run, and a rowing club on Throsby Creek, along with a great set of local shops, cafes and corner pubs.

- Open plan dining and kitchen with gas cooktop, dishwasher and stone benches
- Two of the three bedrooms are fitted with new built-in robes, ceiling fans to all, master with new shower ensuite
- Family bathroom with custom vanity, wet area bath and shower, eye-catching tile selection
