View Street, one of Cessnock’s premiere addresses containing a large proportion of the town’s most expensive residential real estate is also the location for this gorgeous home. Set on approx. 1012sqm, back from the street, with manicured lawns and gardens and a meandering driveway, this circa 1933 Bungalow has a stately street presence and immediately you get a curiosity for what lies behind such a beautiful facade.
The proportions throughout are generous and true to its age and style. It features a wide entrance hallway, pressed metal ceilings, timber windows, French doors to the verandahs, window seats, swinging glass doors, claw foot bath and master built cabinetry, making each and every room special.
A gas faux coal fire gives a cosy ambience to the spacious lounge area and is reminiscent of how the house would have been warmed back in the 1930’s, whilst air conditioning has been added as the climate has heated up.
Whilst not original, but a well-built tasteful addition, is the ensuite to the master bedroom, which blends seamlessly, and the all glass living area which was the most recent addition to the rear of the home, has you feeling like you are sitting in the garden.
Perfect for a home business, hobby room, teenage retreat or the like, is the freestanding building only approx. 2 years old, which sits alongside the home. This room is fully insulated, has excellent lighting, an abundance of power points, has its own air conditioning unit and has been utilised to date as a sewing room.
The weatherboard garage is great for storage, a man cave, will house the tools and the toys, and the carport accommodates 2 vehicles.
The current and only third owner of this fabulous property has lovingly maintained the property and for a home of its era, I would say that it would be difficult to find a home with original features in such excellent condition. If you appreciate the class, style, character and quality that are evident in a period home, be prepared to fall in love with this gem of yesteryear.
