Art Deco Semi with Modern Updates and a Versatile Two Storey Layout Steps from Darby Street
Auction Location: The Arc, 45 Watt Street Newcastle and Live via Auction Now Website.
From the charm of the weatherboard façade to the perfection of the period detailing and the contemporary updates that add a warm and welcoming ambience, this Art Deco gem is a surprise package that contrasts its charming yet unassuming street frontage. In a boutique strata of just three homes, the elegant semi has been revamped and restored to showcase its inherent beauty, while a two-storey extension has provided a versatile layout perfect for a busy couple or small family.
The home’s simple, timeless interiors feature an open plan living space with glass sliding doors connecting the inside to a sunny and private dining terrace fringed by greenery and a prized northerly aspect. Recently renovated, the Caesarstone kitchen adds a contemporary touch with its Miele dishwasher and gas cooktop. Of the two bedrooms on the main level, the master is a retreat in every sense featuring an ornate ceiling and classic bay window seat. Both bedrooms share the main bathroom with shower over bath. Making an ideal teen retreat, guest quarters or space to work from home, the flexible lower level bedroom/living space has its own private entrance and boasts a second bathroom as well as internal access from the single garage.
Infrastructure works to Swan Street have just completed with the installation of a new drainage system, replacement or relocation of power, water, gas, sewer and communications infrastructure, footpath and road reconstruction and the planting of new street trees. The superb location puts Darby Street, Civic Park and the art gallery on the doorstep and the harbour foreshore, beautiful Bar Beach, Honeysuckle entertainment precinct and the University of Newcastle’s city campus close by.
