Beautifully Renovated Boatmen’s Row Terrace with Stunning Harbour and City Views
Auction Location: The Arc, 45 Watt Street Newcastle and Live via Auction Now Website.
East end character meets contemporary elegance in this historic c.1892 Boatmen’s Row terrace. The end of row residence evokes the style and sophistication of a grand Paddington terrace with its striking blend of period charm and architecturally renovated interiors, while the simply spectacular harbour views are quintessentially Newcastle.
A rich patina of age shines through in the natural warmth of original hardwood floors, ornamental fireplaces and double brick construction. A lower ground extension creates superb indoor/outdoor integration between the custom island kitchen, dining area and surprisingly spacious garden that’s just perfect for alfresco entertaining.
Although there is so much to love about this home, from the three stunning bathrooms, two of which have underfloor heating, to the delights of discovering a butler’s pantry and two separate living areas, a true hero is undoubtedly the private master bedroom. Cleverly crafted from the home’s loft space, this delightful sanctuary with ensuite not only serves as sleeping quarters, but also a go-to spot for taking in the views. A custom electric window opens right up to let in the breeze and you will find yourself here pulling up a stool and taking in the magnificence of the Newcastle East period streetscape, all the action on the harbour and the magic of the sun setting each night across Mount Sugarloaf.
Whether you want to catch an early morning surf, take the kids for afternoon swim, jump on the light rail or while away an hour at a local cafe, this lucky lifestyle address has got you covered.
