A "labour of love" has transformed this classic weatherboard home in Hamilton East to a free-flowing beach house with some luxury inclusions.
McKiernan Real Estate have listed the three-bedroom home at 30 Hebburn Street with a guide of $1.35 million to $1.45 million and agent Andrew McKiernan said it was already "proving popular".
The owner has a design background with a love of renovating and told the Newcastle Herald they wanted to bring something different and fresh to the area. That something was Palm Beach glamour with a touch of luxe.
They saw plenty of potential in the original weatherboard home with good bones that had been in the same family for over 60 years. It was in need of "a whole pile of beauty" and has been given "a facelift with lipstick on top" to achieve the desired result.
The kitchen, lounge and dining rooms have been opened up to offer a spacious and functional lay-out.
The main bathroom has been renovated and an ensuite added, both featuring marble tiles. The main also has a freestanding tub. An outside toilet has been turned into a powder room and laundry.
A master suite was created and includes the ensuite, a walk-in robe with office space and access to the sun-soaked front porch through French doors.
The facade and interiors have been painted white to give it a light and bright feel and timber floorboards add warmth.
A rear covered entertaining area also captures plenty of sunlight. There is a level lawn and herb and vegetable gardens have been planted at the front and back of the house.
The property is within walking distance of schools, Marketown Shopping Centre and the CBD.
