50 Henson Avenue, Mayfield East NSW 2304

This stunning weatherboard home is not your typical miners cottage. The c.1915 property offers a combination of classic period features with a light filled and highly functional contemporary extension which has been designed to suit modern day living. This beautiful home is complemented by a prime position in a prominent tree lined street in Mayfield East.

The moment you walk up the front path you feel welcomed, invited in by a private garden with a cosy front veranda. The entry and original part of the cottage offers three generous sized bedrooms, the master having a “his and hers” walk-in robe and a brand new ensuite with a double shower. This part of the home has been tastefully restored, preserving the period features such as dado rails, timber lining boards and original sash windows which add warmth and character to this stunning property.

Transitioning from classic to modern, the rear of the property has been transformed by the addition of a spacious open plan kitchen/dining and living area. This extension boasts 5m cathedral ceilings, Velux skylights, window kitchen splash back and oversized sliding doors, creating an abundance of natural light and a sense of space whist maintaining privacy. The expansive timeless kitchen offers stone benchtops, double undermount sink, integrated dishwasher and rangehood, wall recessed oven, natural gas cooking and a generous island bench which is the perfect place for everyone to come together. Oversized sliding doors open out onto a large undercover hardwood deck that is made for entertaining friends and family and overlooking the private back garden.

Located in Mayfield East, this prized inner city suburb and is only a 10 min drive from town and Newcastle’s beautiful beaches. With a selection of cafes and eateries within walking distance you will also be covered for your morning coffee run. The Mayfield Bowling club, Islington Park, Mayfield pool, and the new Coles shopping centre are all within a short stroll. This property is just a 10min drive from the University of Newcastle and a short walk will take you to Mayfield East Public School.
