‘Piation’ C1914 For Sale – First Time in 100 Years!!


After 100 years in the same family the marketing is off and running to find a new owner for ‘Piation’ named after a favourite horse trained by the original owner, Myles John (Jack) Hartigan, whose successful career training winners allowed him to be mortgage free by 1920 an impressive feat worth mentioning!

The current owner is Jack’s grand- daughter and with her husband beautifully renovated home about eight  years ago retaining many original features such as high ornate ceilings, delicately decorated as a wedding cake, especially the main bedroom with a romantic cherub scene. Most rooms enjoy generous proportions including three bedrooms. A neutral palette of creams and white on walls and ceilings complement the rare Kauri pine floorboards polished to the hue of fresh honey, found throughout the home. 
Kitchen and bathroom have both been upgraded to meet modern standards yet keep the charm of yesteryear unbroken. This styling has contemporary appliances such  dishwasher, under bench electric oven and gas cook top, whilst the bathroom has a distinct vintage feel to it keeping with the design of the post Federation era.

Living areas have a fireplace with an attractive timber mantle in one, combustion fire and air conditioning in another and a third smaller room  makes an ideal study or children’s play area at the rear of the house.
Set back on the block of around 1010SQM, ‘Piation’ is ready for the next owner who has the opportunity to extend the existing dwelling if required or to develop the block (STCA) with additional homes on the site as has been done on  land of similar size in the street.  Its desirable location, well known by many as a lovely area for its heritage appeal as well as handy to Maitland Hospital and Maitland’s Central Business District.
Other attributes of the property, that is a magnificent piece of Maitland’s history,  include established gardens, rear undercover outdoor area, single garage and a small rear paddock  with horse stable. A pretty front verandah  completes the ‘chocolate box’ features of the weatherboard and iron gem on the market for $419,000.
