They had looked through “100 different houses” before coming across the one which would be their family home for the next 15 years.
But there was no question about what they both thought of this New Lambton residence when owners Simon and Beth walked through the front door.
Nestled among the trees and offering privacy and seclusion, this timeless four-bedroom residence is laid out over two levels to offer space and convenience in equal measure.
Originally from the United Kingdom, the couple were taken by the location as well as the house.
“Our kids were already at New Lambton Public School and we liked the suburb of New Lambton,” Simon said.
“It’s quite leafy even though it’s in the middle of the city and Blackbutt Reserve is so close.”
They have raised their family in the home and enjoyed being able to walk to school and New Lambton Village as well as feeling central to all that is on offer in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.
The home is set on 735 square metres and features beautiful landscaped gardens and multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The property enjoys seclusion and security through gated access. Downstairs a formal lounge leads to open plan living and dining.
Four generous bedrooms are upstairs with three enjoying access to a well-appointed balcony.
It is being marketed with a price guide of $1.55 million to $1.65 million.
