A beautiful example of 1930s Art Deco architecture, this Merewether residence has been brought into the 21st century without forgoing any of its original elegance.
Jesse Wilton and Mark Kentwell, of PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, are marketing the three-bedroom house on a north-facing block around 608 square metres in size and within close proximity to The Junction Shopping Village and cafes, beaches and schools.
All three bedrooms are generously sized and located in the front half of the home. The master has a working fireplace and dressing area. There is also a formal lounge with fireplace, built-in desk, picture rails and ornate plaster ceiling.
A contemporary extension, designed by Alder Etc, includes an ultramodern kitchen with Caesarstone island bench and open plan living area with 3.4-metre ceiling. A bank of sliding doors, clerestory windows and glass louvres maximise the natural light and air flow. There is a choice of alfresco areas, two renovated bathrooms, a double garage and family friendly yard.
"It's a family friendly home, for someone who wants that warmth of an older style home but with the practicalities of the new as well," Mr Wilton said. "It's been really tastefully done and it flows perfectly."
A price guide has not yet been set and inspections are by appointment. The home at 91 Morgan Street is set for auction.
