Among the most desirable addresses in the Maitland area, Kensington Road, Bolwarra, is at the pinnacle.
The rare opportunity has arrived to become the new custodian of this stately heritage brick residence, circa 1905, which is set on a prime 1942 square metre (half acre) plot.
The property includes private and peaceful gardens, a pool and tennis court, and presents as a very sought after and appealing offering.
Grandly sited well back from the road, this impressive double brick home shows the rewards of decades of careful maintenance. It still boasts all of those irreplaceable period features of open fireplaces, high ornate ceilings and cedar timberwork which enhance the sheer visual splendour of the early Federation era.
It is all tastefully melded with the lifestyle comforts of ducted air-conditioning, mirror robes, a high quality country style kitchen, extensive informal living area and inviting entertaining terrace.
The floorplan is versatile and can provide up to six bedrooms, two bathrooms and the very generous grounds are a haven for the gardener, children and pets with mature European and native trees framing the complete and very relaxed yet elegant lifestyle on offer.
