An Iconic Mansion Offering Contemporary Luxury


Auction Location: PRD Newcastle 2/16 Telford St, Newcastle East and Live via Auction Now Website.

The iconic Merewether House, once playing host to high standing local dignitaries has recently been carefully and meticulously restored to its former glory with no expense spared by Nero Group Australia. Occupying an elevated position on a 640.5m2 block, this four-bedroom Hamptons style mansion offers all the grandeur of a stately home together with contemporary luxury. Take in the magnificent views across the city suburbs to Memorial Walk and the ocean while dining alfresco on your verandah or enjoy the scene from your conservatory dining room.

This stunning restoration enhances the beauty of heritage elements within the home including the ornately formed 12-foot ceilings, lead light glass and original 1910 whiskey cabinet along with the two cast iron fireplaces. At the heart of the home sits a luxuriously appointed gourmet kitchen with waterfall marble top bench and all modern conveniences. Dining is a delight from the conservatory dining room offering 180-degree views and highlighted by a magnificent period style chandelier. With four bedrooms as well as four separate living areas, there is abundant space for a family to find those quiet moments alone, while the wide wraparound verandah and plunge pool are ideal areas for entertaining guests. The sumptuous master suite grants private access to the pool and encompasses a sitting room with bar, TV and sound system, as well as walk-in wardrobe and ensuite featuring Italian tiles, double vanity, and a wet room with separate standalone bath.

An investment in this iconic Merewether address affords you the luxury of an astonishing home and the convenience of being so close to iconic Newcastle beaches, upscale cafe and restaurant precincts and several well-regarded schools and childcare centres. Acquiring a property of this standing is truly a life defining moment. With majesty restored through an appreciation of its rich history, Merewether House is an outstanding offering for those with discerning taste.
