41 Festing Street, Albany
NEW LOOK FOR AN OLD TIMER House - Property ID: 557038
They don't make them like they use to and this gorgeous renovated home, originally built in 1911 and boasting arresting harbor and hinterland views, stands testament to that.
Original painted and unpainted Baltic pine walls, ceilings and doors, extensive areas of solid jarrah flooring, high ceilings, big bedrooms and ornate fire surrounds have been carefully preserved during its modern makeover.
Set on a 422sqm block, the home has a rendered exterior, full width front verandah and classic external design, which capture the essence of the charming architectural style of the era.
The spacious internal entry hall has wonderful timber-lined walls, ceiling and floors.
Right is a spacious main bedroom with full width built in robes, more fabulous timber and subtle, contemporary soft furnishings and colour schemes.
This neutral, visually appealing theme continues throughout the home, as do the original timbers.
Opposite the main bedroom is a second bedroom, which may once have been a lounge. It is spacious and has an ornate timber surround around the original fireplace and built in robes.
The end of the entry opens to a captivating scene encompassing a generous open plan living and dining area and modern, well-appointed kitchen, and windows and glass doors that run the full width of the open plan area, providing sweeping harbor views and direct access to a fabulous enclosed entertaining deck you won't want to leave.
Cooking will never be the same. With the views before you it might be difficult to concentrate on the job at hand. The kitchen features a concealed original fireplace, dishwasher, full height pantry, fridge/freezer space, modern cooking appliances and lots of cupboards and bench space. Stunning timbers once again triumph in these areas. Off the hub of the home is a third bedroom, which enjoys a nice splash of afternoon sun and even a glimpse of the sunset.
Off the dining area is the modern bathroom with toilet, while the deck provides access to the renovated laundry. The property has off street parking for up to three cars.
A lush cottage style garden beyond the house off the rear deck provides a quiet outdoor setting to also enjoy the magnificent water and hill views from.
