An architect’s expertise shines here with a timeless update introducing enhanced living via clever, practical design while paying respect to the original architect John Oldham’s c.1935 landmark building ‘The Moorings’. The interior is inviting, having an easy floorplan that maximises space and a big window that draws in natural light and city views. Beautiful Tasmanian Oak timber features throughout with the subtle use of brass accents and recycled Australian hardwood inlaid ornately in stepped pattern in keeping with the historical significance of the stepped arches of the interior.
Catering well for couples or singles with abundant storage provided by built-in open shelves and the multiple drawers in the kitchen, and wardrobe and deep drawers concealed beneath the bed area to keep the space clutter free. Time spent in the kitchen is rewarded with plenty of benchspace for preparing meals, induction cooktop for ease of operation and a sizeable fridge & freezer (included), custom sourced to sit under the benchtop so as to maintain the seamless open interior. The peninsular bench space doubles as the place to host dining.
Found sitting high above the tall concrete retaining wall built for the colliery railway and next to Church Walk Park, The Moorings are private and the neighbourhood central and fabulous to live in, footsteps to Darby Street and just as close to many great coffee places and eateries. You can take your exercise along the harbour foreshore or head to the beach or baths, they are only 10 minutes from home when living in this fabulous location. Newcastle’s arts and entertainment scene are also within an easy stroll.
