HARBOUR VIEW HISTORIC PROPERTY AUCTION House - Property ID: 773528
Anyone who has experienced Albany's scenic drive from Brunswick Road around Mount Clarence to Middleton Beach could not help but have noticed this striking colonial heritage property.
Opportunities to acquire such historic real estate in Albany are rare, but your chance will come at the on-site auction to be held on March 7, 2015 at 1pm.
Overlooking magnificent Princess Royal Harbour and national park, this property dates back to 1887, when the charming residence was built on top of the gently sloping 2,611sqm block.
It is within an easy stroll of Albany's city centre, boardwalk and Mt Clarence bush walk trails and has subdivision potential and a separate self-contained granny flat.
This would be a wonderful prospect for a range of buyers from history buffs to families, or someone interested in establishing a bed and breakfast or similar tourist accommodation enterprise. There is also potential to rent out the one-bedroom granny flat for a little extra income. It includes a living area with kitchenette and an ensuite and carport.
Ornate fireplaces and plasterwork, Federation archways, jarrah floors and high ceilings are classic features of the gracious home.
And while it has been carefully maintained with modern fittings and fixtures installed where necessary, its original integrity has not been compromised.
The design is classic 1800s with the wide entry hall and beautiful drawing and formal dining room, and spacious elegant master suite with views and built-in robe.
The separate remodelled country kitchen is virtually the size of the drawing room, offering ample room for a banquet-style table. There is endless storage and bench space and a commercial-sized stove.
The sweeping passage past the kitchen also contains three big bedrooms, including one with a lovely extension, which could be an office, playroom, sunroom or extra bedroom.
The rear of the home features a combined modern bathroom and laundry, second bathroom and two toilets.
