Built in the 1870s as a residence for the Moir family, Gilbert’s Cottage at 49 Collie Street is recorded on the City of Albany Municipal Heritage Inventory.

Timber sash windows, well-proportioned rooms and high ceilings characterise this building, which has been well preserved and maintained.

Inside, a big, carpeted reception area fitted with a desk serves for all three tenant practices. Of these three sizeable consulting rooms, one has a double sink, and all three share two lockable toilets reached via the sheltered back porch.

A driveway at the side of the cottage provides off-road parking and leads through to an expanse of lawn at the rear of the 908sqm block.

The property is subject to the City of Albany’s Town Centre Policy, which maintains the integrity of architecture and preserves the conservation of historic buildings

within the CBD. This ensures the cottage will be protected from the detrimental impact of any future development by neighbouring properties.

Just five minutes from Albany’s CBD, this 11.6 acre Ulster Road block offers huge potential for hobby farming or market gardening.

When land along this strip was first selected, it was favoured for its fertile soils, perpetual freshwater creek and good drainage, making it ideal for production horticulture or keeping stock.

Among established sheep and horse properties, horticulture ventures and berry farms, this vacant block will attract people who yearn for a country lifestyle but hesitate to leave the city behind.

Fenced with Ringlock, the land slopes gently away from the road towards Yakamia Creek, which runs across the block about half the way down. It is cleared and mostly in grass, ready for cultivation or running stock.

Zoning allows for the construction of a home and sheds. A home site near the road would maximise the productive land area while also allowing the occupants beautiful rural views over the property and the creek line, and towards the hills of neighbouring Lange.

With building companies, rural suppliers and all services within easy reach, developing this block would be straightforward.

Once it is established, the owners will enjoy a home designed to suit their own family, sheds to service their chosen venture, and land satisfying their whims or providing an income.
And all this comes with the convenience of schools, shops and medical facilities within walking distance and sports grounds and the town centre within 3km.

Many of the acreage properties along Ulster Road have been in the same family for decades, and blocks of this caliber are rarely offered for sale.

Living close to the city in a beautiful character home with amazing views is a lifestyle many aspire to.

Now there’s an opportunity for selective homebuyers to enjoy all these – as well as modern facilities and classy surroundings – in this outstanding property on the side of Mt Clarence in Port Albany.

Built in 1968, the home displays a style reflecting an earlier era, with leadlight windows, high ceilings, polished timber flooring throughout, sash windows and glazed timber doors. Even details such as the door furniture and paint colours have been carefully considered.

It has, however, had a recent complete renovation, so all these features are beautifully restored and complemented by cleverly chosen modern materials and white decor.

From the outside, the impressive rendered brick facade and Colorbond roof, and the timber deck with a bullnose veranda and iron lacework, give an accurate indication of the style of the home beyond the red front door.

A small entrance hall leads into the main, open living area, where the expansive views over Princess Royal Harbour, from the wind farm to the port, are revealed. To make the most of this outlook, a wide timber deck runs the length of the back of the house. This allows occupants to choose a sheltered spot for relaxing or a vantage point to watch the yachts on the water, the cruise ships coming in to dock, and beautiful sunsets.

The living area is a sunny, airy room with windows on three sides. It comprises a sizeable lounge, a dining area and a sparkling white kitchen with an island bench, stone bench-tops, a gas cooker and plenty of cupboards, including overheads.

All three bedrooms are double sized. Two are at the front of the house and the other, at the back, has French doors opening onto the deck.

The bathroom is fitted with contemporary oversized floor tiling, a white vanity, corner shower, and a separate toilet with a hand basin, which is also accessed from the laundry.

To keep maintenance to a minimum, the 754sqm block is terraced and mostly mulched, and can be landscaped however the new owners choose.

Access is easy. A driveway leads past the house to a generous concrete area at the back. This allows plenty of off-road parking and turning space, which is also reached via steps from the rear deck.

The property is within two kilometres of the town centre, so having the option of leaving the car at home is another advantage.

To fully appreciate the finer points of this charming home, an inspection is essential.

Within a few minutes’ walk of the beach and close to all the amenities a prime tourist precinct has to offer, this impressive Middleton Beach unit is also only a bike-ride from schools and a short drive from shops and medical facilities.

Couples or small families looking for a low-maintenance home in a quality area and within easy reach of everything – or an investor wanting an easy-care property to add to the portfolio – will snap it up.

Built of brick and Colorbond, the unit is the middle one of only three on the block, located amid a streetscape of neat family homes and with nature’s playground at the end of the road.

A high-spec renovation has transformed the kitchen and open living area into a modern, bright and comfortable space with windows on both sides.

Complete with a wide oven, five-burner cooktop, dishwasher, island bench and contemporary cabinetry in grey with granite bench-tops, the kitchen is a sizeable space to delight the family cook.

It overlooks the dining area and adjoining living room, the entire space fitted with impressive high-gloss ceramic floor tiling. Glass doors lead out from the dining space to the fenced back yard, where there’s enough room for an outdoor setting and play equipment.

The floor tiling extends into the hallway leading to the three double bedrooms, all of which are carpeted and two have built-in robes.

The bathroom and laundry sport modern cabinetry and floor and wall tiling. The toilet is separate and the bathroom has a shower and vanity.

A door from the laundry leads out to the back yard and another provides direct access to the garage, which can take two cars and has remote-controlled access and storage space.

The gardens on the 218sqm block are sensibly small for low maintenance, as the owners or tenants will probably spend most recreation time at the beach or park nearby.

At the bottom of the street is the Lake Seppings Walk, convenient for birdwatchers or dog-walkers, and just around the corner is Eyre Park, with picnic areas and plenty of green space for children to run amok.

Bowls, golf, bush walks and major tourist attractions such as the National Anzac Centre are within easy reach of this property, making it an attractive proposition for renting out through Air BnB.

It is currently tenanted privately at $310 a week, and the strata-titled property has no body corporate fees, just a cost for the annual insurance of the common areas.

Here’s an opportunity to secure an excellent investment in a sought-after area near one of the state’s most popular tourist destinations.
