OLD, TIRED AND READY FOR REVIVAL
37 View Street
ALBANY, WA 6330
Here’s an exciting opportunity to complete a major renovation project and transform this ugliest of ducklings into a beautiful modern home designed to take advantage of the wonderful harbour views.
It doesn’t look too exciting at first! This 1960s fibro home has fallen way behind the times, and to say it’s tired is an understatement.
But one look at the vista it enjoys from its 738sqm block in aptly named View Street and its proximity to Albany’s CBD should convince you all the work is well worth undertaking.
Another alternative, of course, is to set the bulldozer to work and develop this good-sized block with a contemporary two-storey home or units.
As it stands, the house has a spacious open living room comprising the lounge and dining area, with two windows on the side with the view over Princess Royal Harbour towards the wind farm, Torndirrup National Park and Vancouver Peninsula.
The adjoining kitchen is also generous, with space for a meals table and a share of the view from the sink.
Both bedrooms are sizeable doubles, and there’s a big bathroom.
Under the home, reached via the back yard, are the old laundry and workshop, both with power connected. There’s a single garage with workshop space and further off-road parking.
From top to bottom, almost everything will need replacing, but the new owner will probably also want to reconfigure the layout and include at least one more bedroom – and perhaps another storey.
The property is within easy walking distance of York Street and the city’s shops, cafes, restaurants, entertainment and parks.
It’s certainly the worst house on one of Albany’s best streets for the view and city life. It is, however, priced for someone to pick it up, develop it and either enjoy the lifestyle it promises or capitalise on their investment.
If you fancy rolling up your sleeves, take a close look at the possibilities offered by this property and snap up a bargain.
