Charming Country Cottage
Located in the unique, and tightly held village of Hinton in the lower Hunter Valley, only a stones throw from the well known historic town of Morpeth, 10 minutes from the bustling heart of East Maitland, and 40 minutes from Newcastle CBD, is this exquisitely thought out country cottage at 31 Elizabeth Street.
The home is superbly positioned on the block. Located down a quiet cul-de-sac you will be impressed to find the amount of value this home has to offer. Superbly positioned on the block, with the marvellous front deck, compliment by the mature grape vine which provides deep shading in summertime to the deck, living space and bedrooms, reducing the need for air conditioning. In wintertime the living areas and bedrooms are filled with direct sunlight. The living space, and bedrooms are blessed with a due north aspect, it is a home which any savvy home designer or architect would love. Entering via the expansive front deck, into the equally vast living room, with lofty vaulted ceilings, and seamless flow from the inside to the outside, you won't be able to help feeling the character and warmth of this home. The kitchen is well designed with plenty of cabinetry space, and a large walk in pantry. The main bathroom has had updates and is highly functional with separate shower and bath. The front two bedrooms all have built in robes and abundant natural light. The main bedroom has a walk-through robe, sunny ensuite, with additional storage. There is also a large linen cupboard in the hallway.
To the rear of the home, flowing elegantly from the dining space, you will find an enormous undercover entertaining and outdoor living area. Ideal for entertaining friends or enjoying the precious family time owning a home like this allows. Continuing into the yard you will find a sizable lawn and lush garden which includes fruiting macadamia, bananas, grapes, herbs, strawberries, citrus and leeks. The home also boasts a large workshop at the rear, ideal for a man (or woman) cave with plenty of storage and bench space, power, water and plenty of natural light.
31 Elizabeth Street Hinton is one of those rare assets that one simply cannot miss. It is a home that simply picks you up and hugs you. The character and charm is seldom surpassed in this day and age of mass market project homes.
