THE OLD AND THE NEW
95 Burgoyne Road
PORT ALBANY, WA 6330
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.
