Enjoying an elevated position on a large block, this classic 1920s residence has been extended to perfectly blend convenient modern living with traditional charm.
The double-brick home at 68 Bull Street in Mayfield was built for a BHP engineer and retains many of its period features, including timber floors, high ceilings, picture rails and French doors.
It is being marketed by Mark Kentwell and Chasse Ede, of PRDnationwide Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, with a price guide of $1 million to $1.1 million.
Strong early interest has come from young families and downsizers ahead of its scheduled auction on December 12 at Watt Street Commercial Centre.
A Brian Suters-designed extension was added in 2005 and has been one of the home’s most popular attractions.
The property has a 20-metre frontage and plenty of street appeal.
Through the front door is a light-filled sunroom that leads to a large, separate lounge room with original fireplace and window seat. A modern gas kitchen adjoins a dining space with access to a choice of timber decks.
The master suite is on the home’s lower level as well as a second bedroom and main bathroom with separate shower and cast iron claw foot bath.
There is a paved outdoor entertaining space with pergola, level grassed area and side driveway to a double garage.
Upstairs are two more bedrooms, one has a balcony with views of Newcastle from the ocean to Mount Sugarloaf, and a study space.
The block is 708 square metres of land in total and located within walking distance of schools, playgrounds and shops.
It is open for inspection from 9.30am until 10am on Saturday.
