In the unassuming backstreets of North Lambton, sits a beautiful piece of Newcastle heritage that you cannot replicate. Known today as Quarryman’s Cottage, the origins of this stone cottage date back to1880’s, and overtime, like many of our historic items in the past, fell in to disrepair and was un-inhabitable. Fortunately, this home has a happy ending, because it fell in to the right hands in 2014 and for 2 years was restored inch by inch, to a level of quality that only patience, passion and craftsmanship can produce.
The size of this 1 bedroom home may be modest, but the emotional romantic aura is limitless. This setting would make an ideal B&B or a weekender for yourself. Just 90 minutes from Wahroonga, 14 minutes to the Newcastle CBD & beaches and 41 minutes to the Hunter Valley vineyards, the location will offer you an active & diverse lifestyle by day, followed by cosy, relaxed night by the fireplace.
In addition to the unique lifestyle & architecture, the 746sqm block offers dual occupancy potential (subject to Newcastle Council approval) where you could build a 2nd dwelling as your own family residence with a granny flat or build accommodation for students to take advantage of the demand from Newcastle University.
This is a rare opportunity to just walk in and enjoy, a historic home with further potential.
