294 Serpentine Road
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
Magnificent ocean and mountain views will delight the new owners of this impressive two-storey home high on Mt Melville.
Stylish renovations and extensions have created a modern, spacious and versatile home while retaining the character of its 1960s origins in such details as jarrah floorboards, high ceilings and decorative cornices.
And it’s just 2km from the centre of Albany and all the shops, eateries, facilities and nightlife of the city.
The house sits at the top of its sloping 1547sqm block to make the most of the expansive views to Michaelmas and Breaksea Islands in the Southern Ocean, to Emu Point, over Albany, and north to the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.
This outlook is shared by the living room and appealing outdoor areas on both levels – an extensive deck on top and a sheltered, paved patio below.
The generous open living room has big windows to create a warm, sunny ambience while maximising the outlook in all directions.
Bi-fold doors from the dining room extend this to the deck, and on the opposite side, a smaller deck provides a sheltered option for barbecues.
A quality renovation of the kitchen is displayed in jarrah bench tops and ivory cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, dishwasher and five-burner stove.
Three of the bedrooms are in the charming original part of the home. All are good-sized doubles with built-in robes. The main bathroom is beautifully appointed with a corner shower, bath, double vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiling in ivory hues. The separate toilet opposite is similarly finished, and the adjacent laundry has fitted storage cupboards.
A staircase leads from the living area to another versatile room below. Currently a gym, this could be independent accommodation for family members. It has an adjoining double bedroom and a bathroom and toilet, as well as access to the lower patio.
Storage is plentiful, in the loft, a linen room and an undercroft area, part of which is a workshop.
Quality carpets and blinds, security cameras and air conditioning in the living room are other benefits.
While the block is a good size, it is also low-maintenance, with lawns front and back and a sloping area of bush on the lower reaches. A double carport at the front has an adjacent third parking spot, and there’s turning space at the side.
This outstanding property offers a desirable lifestyle of comfort and convenience for everyday living and entertaining.
