A stunning c.2015 renovation by a heritage conservation architect sets the scene for this irresistible double-fronted miner’s cottage. Elegantly updated to retain many of its original features, yet functioning in a completely contemporary sense, the sublime fusion of old and new has been handled with a skilled hand. Positioned in one of Wallsend’s best streets, a sun-splashed verandah welcomes you inside to a central hallway splitting three robed bedrooms and the modern kitchen, finished to perfection with a gas cooker and stainless-steel dishwasher. To the rear, the living and dining space extends outwards via French doors to a paved courtyard and terraced gardens providing a sunny spot to socialise or dine alfresco. A three-way bathroom is a stylish affair with freestanding bath, oversized shower and wall-hung vanity. Positioned directly opposite beautiful Federal Park and set in a peaceful, family-friendly setting, it lies within the catchment zone of several excellent schools with Wallsend’s thriving business and retail hub a leisurely stroll away.
