James Rodrick has described a Pender designed grand residence he is marketing as "one of the most prestigious properties in the Maitland CBD region to come to market for some time".
The Starr Partners Maitland agent is marketing the elegant "Sherborne" at 80 Church Street. He anticipated it to attract plenty of attention.
"It is a marquee property for the Maitland CBD," Mr Rodrick said. "I expect we'll see a fair bit of interest from Newcastle and out of Sydney. When we recently sold Bridge House at 1 High Street that went to a Sydney purchaser. That was one of Maitland's oldest homes. These types of properties always create interest as far afield as Sydney.
"It's a very private home. It has dual street frontage and is in a B4 commercial zoning giving it a wide variety of uses."
The two-storey residence was built circa 1887 and is set on over 1170 square metres of land. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms including an ensuite with floor-to-ceiling marble, high ornate ceilings, cedar doors and architraves and a filigree trimmed veranda. There is rear access to a triple garage with workshop from Ballard Street, private manicured gardens and an in-ground swimming pool.
Starr Partners will hold a premiere launch of the property on December 7 at 4pm. A price guide has not been disclosed.
Mr Rodrick is also marketing a property built in 1860 at 282 High Street in Maitland that is being used as a gallery and private residence for $885,000 to $910,000. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
