Historical Charm with Modern Embellishments
A rich history and impeccable taste are on display in this late Victorian home known as the Thornton Residence. Built in 1889 it is a stunning encapsulation of the period, with many modern flourishes and luxuries. Situated on a quiet, leafy street and distinguishable through its elegant landscaping, the home blends seamlessly with the many beautiful early and heritage builds in the immediate area and is perfectly located to take advantage of the lifestyle ‘The Ridge’ area of Waratah has to offer.
Polished timber flooring, high ceilings, picture rails and ornate embellishments inside and out, reflect and recreate the architecture of the time. Enjoy the comfort of the gas fire in the formal living room and come together in the separate dining room which adjoins the gorgeous, light filled kitchen fitted with a five-burner Baumatic stove, rangehood and Bosch dishwasher. Of the three ground floor bedrooms, two offer ceilings fans and one a working wood fire. Upstairs the master bedroom amazes with spectacular views and features an ensuite, walk-in robe and a separate, large office/study space. Also upstairs is a separate air-conditioned living area that opens onto an architecturally designed deck overlooking the solar heated inground pool and taking in the views beyond. A wraparound front veranda compliments the many spaces perfect for chasing the sun and relaxing, including an alfresco dining area at the rear.
This historic home has an outward charm and character that sets it apart from modern designs. Thoughtful angles abound in a house that offers space and privacy for everyone, in a location with easy access to sought after schools, Newcastle University, a major shopping centre and public transport.
