Beautifully Updated Period Home with Granny Flat and Multi-Vehicle Parking

A circular herringbone driveway behind tall greenery heralds your arrival at this gorgeous c1925 home that's perfectly picturesque both inside and out. Stunning renovations throughout the home have been curated to reflect a more contemporary aesthetic and provide modern lifestyle conveniences while still retaining the heart-warming authenticity of its almost 100-year heritage. The self-contained granny flat, a perfect north facing backyard, and multi-vehicle parking are just some of the fabulous features that will have you falling in love at very first sight.

Remarkably well-proportioned interiors are wonderfully light-filled, with 10-foot ceilings, timber flooring, and elegant fretwork adding charm and character. A bold and striking use of pattern has been used to brilliant effect in the eye-catching tiling in the home's two main bathrooms and the series of decks and verandahs that encircle the property and offer a choice of spaces to dine or relax alfresco.

Inside, everyone can stretch out in the formal lounge room or the open plan dining and family room where a large window brings in brilliant winter sun and beautiful leafy views. The stone-finished kitchen radiates Hamptons style and is a fitting centrepiece in this light-filled space. Four bedrooms make up the sleeping quarters, while the one-bedroom granny flat offers versatility as a studio, office or guest or Airbnb accommodation. An oversized single garage, tandem carport and multi-vehicle driveway parking along with a fabulous backyard, where there is enough room for a pool (STCA), round out the long list of features.

With a distinct village feel, a great café and shopping strip, some of the city's best performing schools and the 182ha Blackbutt Reserve and John Hunter Hospital on its doorstep, New Lambton is literally surrounded by lifestyle attractions.
