GREAT COUNTRY WITH CITY ADVANTAGES!
70 Frenchman Bay Road
MOUNT ELPHINSTONE, WA 6330
Just minutes from Albany’s historic city centre and breathtaking Princess Royal Harbour, presents this exquisite two-storey, four bedroom, three bathroom family property set on an opulent 3.7 acres.
You know to expect something special on Frenchman Bay Road. An opportunity like this is few and far between. So close to town yet surrounded by Mount Elphinston countryside. Horse lovers, ex-farmers, families, or adventurous characters seeking a complete change of pace, need look no further than the lifestyle available on this 1.51ha property.
Feast from your very own orchard and indulge in the delights grown on 100 citrus trees including oranges, mandarins & lemons. Not forgetting the large dam on the property to help keep the orchard watered and in good shape.
An enormous powered shed/workshop has drive through access and houses its own toilet and seperate room for either a kitchenette or additional storage. A carport is attached to the rear of the shed and is just as large and could easily accommodate a couple of caravans and a boat. For added convenience you’ll find an additional bricked carport at the front of the shed.
A circular driveway for drive-in-and-out ease provides you with the first glimpse of the abode. Solid and grand in appearance surrounded by well established trees and foliage for added privacy. An additional driveway and carport takes you up the side of the property where you can enter the home under shelter.
Positioned perfectly at the foot of Mt Elphinston this home stands proud.
Climb the steps up to the main entrance that is positioned on a sweeping stoned patio that circles the home. Enjoy glimpses of the harbour from this elevated position and watch the cruise-ships enter the port.
This residence could easily be divided into two living quarters for a potential B&B business or opulent parents retreat. There’s definitely plenty of scope for the imagination.
Enter through sliding doors to this enormous lounge area, complete with heated flooring, wood burner, timber ceilings with an exposed industrial steel beam for added appeal that compliments the exposed brick feature walls.
Picture windows surround the room to take in all the lush scenery and you’ll be soon planing on which trail you can take to climb Mt Elphinston.
Before you open up the internal sliding doors to explore the rest of the home – ascend the timber and steel framed staircase that leads you to your very own wide gallery-landing with an additional storage room attached. Spacious enough for a single bed even!
Enter the king master bedroom with windows all around for uber views. With a walk in robe and plenty of shelving plus a ultra stylish ensuite. You needn’t leave this part of the home if so desired. Also makes for the perfect guest wing.
Moving back down to ground level it’s time to explore the main house. Open sliding doors and enter the kitchen and open plan dining area. White cupboards and bench tops are solid and lay upon white tiles throughout. A second wood burner is positioned on the rear wall of the dining area. Attached via a large arch way you’ll find a second lounge that is cosy and comfortable and also separated by sliding internal doors to the colossal lounge room under the master bedroom.
From here you can entertain your guests in the fully enclosed sunroom with sliding doors either side of the space that is majestically positioned at the foot of the hill where your guests can admire the greenery.
Leave this section of the home and wander to the hallway where you’ll find a further three bedrooms, two queens and a single. Another master room has its own ensuite and like the entire home is bright and neutral in decor. All bedrooms are carpeted with fitted blinds.
The family bathroom has been updated and is a contemporary wet-room with a modern vanity, shower and a large spa bath for added luxury.
This really is a no brainer of a purchase. Luscious lawns roll down from the front of the property to where it levels off towards the shed and expands greatly to the left where you’ll see the fruit trees and find the dam.
If you love to cycle, ride horses and have a desire to rear hobby stock, then don’t miss out on this stunning lifestyle block. Tranquility and privacy as well as being close to town. I couldn’t imagine a better place to unwind with a book after a busy day!
