Elegant Victorian Terrace Re-Imagined for Practical Modern LivingAuction Location: The Arc, 45 Watt Street Newcastle.
A clever re-imagining of a classic form, this Victorian-era terrace combines the beauty of period elegance with a comprehensive renovation and extension that opens up the design for practical modern living, hidden behind a traditional facade. A delightful feature of this stunning home is its generous 457sqm approx landholding with rear lane access, which allows for prized off-street parking as well as a sizeable garden, along with the added attraction of a versatile self-contained double-storey studio.
Built c.1865, the history of the residence has been beautifully renovated, with period features including stunning leadlight doors and windows, high ceilings, a hallway arch, picture rails and feature fireplaces. Renovated in 2007, the artist’s own home now features an elegant formal lounge room and relaxed open plan living and dining space. Banks of louvre windows and sky lights add light and cross-ventilation and a gas fire adds winter warmth, while sculptural wrought-iron by local artisan Tom Ireland is an eye-catching feature to the timber staircase and balustrade.
In the kitchen, corian bench tops contrast beautifully with the overall neutral tones of the kitchen, while quality appliances ensure the space is practical as well as stylish. A study, large laundry and third bathroom conclude the ground floor. The split-level upper floor reveals three generously sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and an enclosed front verandah.
Outdoors, green-thumbed gardeners will love the unexpected natural oasis in the midst of this inner city setting where a variety of fruit trees and vegetables promise a good yield. The self-contained studio with bathroom and kitchenette inspires endless possibilities as a home office, Airbnb, or as a more private place for the young adult or visiting relative.
The property’s appeal isn’t just based on its striking interiors. The Hill is centrally positioned within walking distance of the city’s key attractions. Stroll to Darby Street for bustling bars, charming boutiques and endless dining options. Pack a picnic and head to beautiful King Edward Park. Grab your surfboard and towel and head to the beach for an early morning swim or surf or explore Newcastle’s coastal beauty with a brisk walk along the harbour foreshore to Nobbys beach and the breakwall.
