A quiet retreat for those after a slow lifestyle!
Located on the quiet stretch into Stockton, this two-bedroom home backs onto the Hunter River and offers water glimpses from your back step. The cottage was one of a row of four constructed by James Callen, a historic shipbuilder, to home his employees. The backyard opens onto the cycle and walkway around Stockton, making you only a stroll from fishing jetties and boat ramps, parks, and the beaches.
The main living areas in the home are fitted with timber flooring, flowing from the loungeroom to an additional living or dining area, all the way down to the bedrooms and sunroom. The sunroom has been converted from a small verandah at the front of the property, offering a private space for a small living area or study nook. The main living area features a non-functional refurbished fireplace and mantle, sitting affront an exposed brick feature wall bringing a pop of style to the room. Further renovations include new wooden decking at the front of the home, new steps installed on the right-hand side of the house, and updated fencing within the last 18 months.
Perfect for a slow lifestyle, only streets from grocery stores, pubs, and cafes, the location is unbeatable for someone wanting the luxury of a quiet neighborhood. For those who miss the noise, the property is only a ferry ride away from the busy CBD of Newcastle, close enough to the action without compromising your peace and quiet.
