House of the Week: 51 Perkins Street, Newcastle

“If you love a property it loves you back.”

They are the words of the owner of this elegant circa 1860 terrace who hopes the next purchaser will adore it as much as they have.

Enjoying a sought-after position in the heart of Newcastle’s heritage precinct and moments from the Hunter Street revitalisation, this character-filled home is steeped in history and offers an enviable inner city lifestyle.

The Victorian residence is immaculately presented over three levels and gracefully showcases original features including the door-knocker and handle, fireplace and wine cellar.

It is being sold for the first time in 23 years and has been impeccably maintained to retain its original integrity.

The entry level is reserved for living and entertaining with the open plan lounge and dining adjoining a bespoke galley style kitchen with granite benches, rich timber cabinetry and high-end appliances.

A sunny atrium opens to a stunning easily maintained courtyard. 

Two bedrooms enjoy position on the third level. The spacious master suite has access to a sun-drenched balcony with breathtaking harbour views. The second bedroom has a sitting room and there is a stylish bathroom with claw-foot tub.

Downstairs is an additional living space with ornate marble fireplace, third bedroom and walk-in wine cellar.

The tightly held terrace is moments to the vibrant food and arts scene that defines the city. It is being marketed with a price guide of $1.45 million and is set for auction.
