VIEWS FROM HISTORIC ALBANY
15 Cliff Street
ALBANY, WA 6330
When this property was built around a century ago, the best building lots in Albany were just being selected and developed.
This impressive character home occupies one of them, from where it takes in expansive views from the wind farm, over Princess Royal Harbour, the port, the sailing club and around to Mt Clarence.
It’s also within easy walking distance of town and has the convenience of entertainment, eateries, shops and recreation almost on its doorstep.
The home itself displays many original features, including polished jarrah floorboards throughout, high ceilings, timber windows, open fireplaces, picture rails and generously proportioned rooms.
Finished with classy decor and light fittings befitting the style and era of this property, it has been sensitively renovated in keeping with its grand beginnings and incorporates quality features such as a sheoak and leadlight front door.
Big windows in the enclosed front veranda maximise the outlook and provide a sheltered, comfortable spot for taking in spectacular sunsets and watching ships moving in to port. Sharing the view are two generous rooms – the dining room and the master bedroom which is currently being used as a theatre room, both off a wide hallway from the front door.
The second bedroom is also king-sized and the third is also spacious, currently used as a study. A jarrah vanity sets off the bathroom, which has a shower and toilet.
Other living areas are the appealing lounge with a wood fire, and a sunroom at the rear. The kitchen has timber bench tops, shelving and a picture window overlooking the back yard.
At the top of the sloping 554sqm block is the main entrance and the double garage, while another road with right of way for this property and its neighbours provides a second access at the front, where there is further off-road parking.
Neat lawns, trees and garden beds make a fine setting for the home.
A laundry and second toilet, a shed, rainwater tank and good storage are other benefits.
The Cliff Street home is versatile and charming. Modern appointments have been included without compromising the essence of this property and it has been well maintained and tastefully refurbished.
Now it is ready for discerning buyers to enjoy the desirable lifestyle it offers.
