This idyllic property proves you don’t have to leave the city far behind to enjoy all the wonderful aspects of country life.

Just 10 minutes’ drive from Albany’s CBD, the tranquil parkland estate of about 1.6ha is also close to sheltered bathing waters, fishing spots and the boat ramp for crabbing on Princess Royal Harbour.

Accessed via a long, sealed driveway, the big two-storey home is set in amongst neat lawns with native peppermints and towering gums.

Featuring a spacious open plan design, this impressive home has everything a family needs and it will delight those placing a premium on their own space and tranquility. Every room is well proportioned.

On the ground floor, a wood fire heats the generous main living area incorporating the lounge, family room, dining room and huge kitchen with a corner pantry, dishwasher and lots of cabinetry and bench space.

A second sizeable lounge or family room upstairs provides more living options and there’s a delightful first floor balcony overlooking the property – the ideal spot for firing up the barbecue.

Undercover patios at the front and rear offer further choices for outdoor entertaining.

Also on the ground floor is an office or fifth bedroom at the front and the master bedroom, a king-sized room with a walk-in robe and a semi-en suite bathroom with bath, shower and double vanity.

The toilet is off the laundry and there’s a second toilet and hand basin upstairs, near the three double-sized family bedrooms, all of which have built-in robes.

Décor, flooring and tiling are in excellent order. The sale of this property even includes a high-end Bose sound system with amplifier, which can be enjoyed both of the upstairs and downstairs living areas.

A double garage at the back of the house has internal access, and there’s also a powered 12m x 7m shed – and room for constructing more – as well as ample sealed parking and turning space.

An ideal site for growing veggies and keeping chooks is near the house, and an area of the back yard is fenced for children and pets to play.

Water is plentiful from three rainwater tanks (total capacity is about 140,000 L) and a solar hot water system is installed with an instant gas booster.

Families will appreciate the proximity to a very popular primary school and the school bus to Albany, as well as a fuel outlet and general store nearby.

You wont see much of this property from the kerbside as it is very privately screened behind the natural bush running along the length of the road, so please contact Lee Stonell direct on 0409 684 653 or lee@merrifield.com.au to arrange an inspection or to obtain further information. The last listing in this location sold quickly so don’t delay, contact Lee today.

Spectacular views await the new owners of this outstanding family home looking out to King George Sound, Emu Point, Michaelmas and Breaksea Islands and Mt Clarence.

Not only that, but fabulous entertaining areas, expansive rooms and quality appointments head a long list of desirables for livability and comfort.

Brilliantly set up to answer every growing family’s needs, the big two-storey home occupies an 817sqm wide-frontage block with a garage-workshop, a hardstand for the boat or caravan and plenty more off-road parking.

Opposite parkland, it’s a smart home from the outside – and the inside is a revelation.

Built in the mid-1980s, the home has undergone impressive renovation and extension and offers many options for everyday living, relaxing and entertaining dinner guests or overnighters.

On the ground floor is the main living area comprising a dining space, generous family room and lounge. Full-length windows make this a welcoming, light space enhanced by stylish ivory floor tiles, neutral décor and a corner wood fire.

At one end is the terrific big kitchen with a wide oven and stove, dishwasher and cabinetry in modern latte tones. Adjoining this is a butler’s pantry with storage and benches for appliances.

Glazed doors lead out to a paved, covered al fresco area overlooking the back garden, big enough for family parties and barbecues.

One of the bedrooms – a king-sized room with an en suite and walk-in robe – is also on this floor and there’s an office which would serve as a fifth bedroom or nursery.

If the views from the lower level are inspiring, from upstairs they are stunning.

And there are other surprises. Off the central generous lounge is a fantastic part-glazed deck, the ideal spot for watching ships moving in and out of the harbour.

Three more king-sized bedrooms – one with an en suite bathroom and built-in robe – and the main bathroom are also on this floor.

An excellent primary school is around the corner, Grammar is a few minutes’ drive away and school buses stop right outside. Commuting to town takes about 10 minutes.

For families with active youngsters and granny to accommodate, this offers myriad choices and solutions in one stylish, practical package. To see it is to love it!
