Historically, residents in the inner sanctum of Albany’s CBD are stayers, long term lovers of the quick mosey to town, who hang onto their priceless pieces of property like they are part of the family.

However right now, you have the opportunity to benefit from the development of a new sub divided block, and snap up a little section of this sought after sanctuary for yourself.

Placed on the Port end of Brunswick Road, this rear block has been newly created and leveled with limestone retaining to lift you up above the existing classical home in front.

Staring up to the hill above, is an absolute showcase of what a clever mind can do with such a section, with mini mansions, historic haunts and inspirational abodes clambering up Mount Clarence hill above you. And below, there is the chic outlook of the Port and beyond to the sentimental favourite of the harbour.

The beauty of this block is that there are no building restrictions, so the towering palaces of luxury above you could be placed on this level parcel of land to make the most of its views.

However, truth be known, if all you did with the block was pop on a simply, understated and absolutely beautiful townhouse, you would still be able to lap up the benefits of views to the harbour and still being just a two minute walk from the centre of town, and enable a life filled with dinner dates, easy afternoon beverages, trips to the market and daily strolls along the award winning Boardwalk to Middleton Beach.

So the nitty gritty:

– Here you have 445 square metres to play with, nicely flat but easily stilted to create a multiple level home.
– The house in front is a classic wholesome beauty, in the process of having its own modern makeover.
– A private driveway will lead up to your garage door, and you can relish in the peace and quiet that being set back from the road offers, not that the traffic noise is an issue in this area anyway.
– One can imagine an creative design, with unique angles and plenty of glasswork to make the most of the space.
– Or you could take heed from the houses around you and create a shanty that is complimentary to the historic values of the precinct.

You simply couldn’t not love living in the Heart of our great City.

What you should know:

– 445 square metre prime CBD block
– Unrestricted building options
– Harbour and port views
– Minutes walk to town, restaurants
– Stroll or ride on boardwalk to Beach

Ditch the commute and waiting in the school drop-off line, and step into this airy, family home just a short walk from Spencer Park Primary School.

Not only is this 3×1 home close to school, it is also only a five-minute drive to Albany’s CBD, a short walk to the hospital, one-minute from the local shopping centre, and a short drive to Albany’s main beach, Middleton Beach. Everything for a young family is near to this home, including several parks with playgrounds.

Imagine, walking your children to school every day and then hopping on your bicycle and heading down to Middleton Beach for a swim. After the beach, you get all your shopping done at the local shopping centre – all before lunch time!

Now, all there is left to do is enjoy your low-maintenance home.

Sunlight fills each room of this modest, well-priced, brick home. As you step in through the front door you’ll notice the modern, wood-like linoleum flooring in the spacious living room. The clean, cream walls and three windows make the living room feel big and bright. A wood-fireplace sits in the corner of the room ready to warm your family during the cosy, winter months.

Step through the living room to the large dining room with another big window and then into the kitchen. The large refrigerator nook allows for additional shelving or an extra freezer. The countertops are modern and the built-in pantry has plenty of space for your growing, hungry family.

Down the hallway sits a large, linen cupboard and the three bedrooms. The first room is the master bedroom large enough for a queen bed and the next two bedrooms are perfect sizes for young children in single beds, all with carpet.

The main bathroom is compact with a shower in the bath and a vanity. There is a separate toilet located through the laundry. Step through the laundry into the large, fenced backyard.
The backyard is large enough for a playground and plenty of toys for the children, and the driveway feeds through the gates with enough space for more cars, a boat or caravan for your biggest kid.

The yard feels private with trees and bushes surrounding the property. Enjoy sitting in your backyard looking out to views of Mount Melville.

As you walk up the sloping block at the rear, this view really opens up to show the view south to King George Sound and Vancouver Peninsula.

The bathroom consists of shower and vanity basin with room to include a second toilet to compliment the separate toilet at the rear of the home.
