The auction has been brought forward due to competitive interest for what agent Jesse Wilton described as "one of the most talked about properties" in Cooks Hill.
Mr Wilton, of PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, is marketing the meticulously renovated residence at 110 Dawson Street with a guide of $1.65 million to $1.8 million.
It is owned by award-winning builder Sean Richards, who totally renovated the home in 2016 and extended in 2020 with an emphasis on luxury and liveability.
The home's heritage is retained in its original facade while inside it has been stylishly modernised throughout.
Light-filled living effortlessly connects to the gourmet kitchen and dining and seamlessly transitions to a covered deck with an outdoor kitchen and heated plunge pool.
Three bedrooms include a luxurious master suite. An attic conversion offers a versatile space and there is a study.
Property features include original timber floorboards, V groove ceilings, remote operated VLUX skylights, plantation shutters, security system and air conditioning.
It is located within walking distance of schools, parks, Darby Street cafes and restaurants, Newcastle harbour foreshore and the CBD.
The auction will now be held on site on Wednesday at 6pm and it is open for inspection on Saturday at midday.
