This vacant development block in the heart of Spencer Park and just 3km from Albany’s CBD offers an opportunity for a commercial or residential development with the potential for excellent returns.

Expressions of interest are sought for the 3927sqm site, which is located between the busy Spencer Park Shopping Centre and Lions seniors’ units, and opposite a medical centre. It is part of a densely populated suburb well serviced with schools and housing the major regional hospital.

To preserve the integrity of the site and its surroundings, development is governed by the Spencer Park Precinct Plan, under which the block is classified as Mixed Use Sub-Precinct.

This provides for a multiple residential housing development with the capacity for home-based business, professional offices, consulting rooms or, at the local authority’s discretion, aged persons’ accommodation.

The site itself is level and mostly cleared with a small stand of native trees. It fronts both Pretious Street and Hardie Road, and a desired outcome under the precinct plan is the construction of an east-to-west street between the two, with provision for on-street parking.

Building and design criteria apply to any construction, which would be permissible up to a maximum of three storeys, and other criteria apply to the built form and landscaping.

This is a potentially lucrative investment suitable for a variety of uses.

For further details of this block and building guidelines, or to express your interest in purchasing, phone Colin Montefiore of Merrifield Real Estate on 0428 936 631.

It’s priced to sell, so with a judicious further investment and a bit of elbow grease, the returns are certainly there for first buyers or investors.

A door off the kitchen leads out to the back patio and the laundry, and beyond that, the back yard, mostly in lawn and with two sheds.

This is an exciting project for a motivated buyer, as there’s little structural work needed and the home promises a great deal with a facelift. It’s currently tenanted, making it an ideal investment, and owner-occupiers could do the place up while living in it.

The main focus is the open family room and meals area – where full-length windows let in plenty of light as well as an outlook over the garden, and glass doors open onto a sheltered, private deck, big enough for a barbecue, pizza oven and family-sized outdoor setting.

In addition, there’s a generous dining room with a feature raked ceiling and a comfortable TV lounge.

The modern kitchen is a treat to work in with clever design features and high-end appliances as well as a dishwasher, pantry and sleek cabinetry.

Two double bedrooms, both with built-in robes, are at the rear of the ground floor, next to the main bathroom, laundry and toilet.

On the first floor are two king-sized bedrooms. One has built-in robes and the other is the lovely master suite with a walk-in robe and bathroom complete with spa bath, rain shower, vanity and toilet.

Back on the ground floor is a good-sized office, which could be used as a fifth bedroom.

A workshop with power is at the rear of the double garage, and at the side of the house, there’s a freestanding Colorbond garage or boatshed, also with workshop space.

Smart bamboo flooring is fitted in the hallway, kitchen and meals area and other rooms are carpeted. All wet areas are tiled. All décor and tiling are in excellent condition and presentation is exemplary inside and out.

A big wood fire and gas bayonet fitting in the family room, an alarm system and plenty of storage are other notable benefits.

Eyre Park, the bowling club, Lake Seppings walks and good eateries are all within easy walking distance, and Albany’s CBD is a five-minute drive from this outstanding property.

Security, privacy, comfort and convenience are essentials on most retiree’s or over 55’s wish lists when it comes to downsizing or moving home.

And this lovely, sunny and welcoming unit answers all these needs and offers so much more besides.

Less time spent on maintenance and housework equals more time for leisure – and bowls, walks, golf, eateries and the centre of Albany are all within easy reach of this neat-as-a-pin, freestanding unit.

Tucked away in the corner of the attractively landscaped Baudin Gardens complex, the free standing brick and tile home enjoys its own secluded space on 206sqm with a carport, a terrific paved, sheltered patio for cuppas and barbies, and a courtyard with a lock-up storage shed.

A glass wall shelters the front door, which opens onto an L-shaped living room, an inviting space combining an open lounge and meals area, where glass doors lead out to the patio.

On one side is the kitchen – well laid out with a pantry cupboard, gas cooktop, wall oven, good cabinetry and space for a big fridge-freezer.

The next room along the hallway is a double bedroom. On the original plan, this was a formal dining room, but it was sensibly converted to a third bedroom, though it’s a versatile space that could be kept as a bedroom, converted back or used for hobbies.

Two more double bedrooms – one the big main bedroom – are further down the hall, near the pleasant bathroom with bath, shower and vanity, the toilet and the laundry.

There’s gas heating in the lounge and for residents’ peace of mind, security screens are fitted to all windows and doors, a particular bonus for those leaving for warmer climes in winter.

The complex is well planned to promote privacy for residents while feeling like a supportive little community.

This impressive unit will delight retirees or over-55 buyers insisting on an easily maintained home with a carefree lifestyle to match, or investors looking for a solid property with the prospect of good returns and mature tenants.

Finding a well-priced property in a desirable suburb with everything in tip-top order can be a challenge for buyers.

This lovely brick and tile family home on a 709sqm block with an open layout and versatile floor plan ticks all these boxes, so it’s sure to be snapped up.

From the street, its smart exterior of oversized cream bricks is set off by a charcoal roof and garage door.

It’s inside, though, where it really impresses.

The hub of the home is an air-conditioned open living space combining the family room, dining area and kitchen. With cabinetry in modern tones, a dishwasher, under-bench oven, gas cooktop and pantry, this is a well-appointed space.

There’s also a separate lounge at the front, which would also be an ideal playroom or TV room, and glass doors from the main living area open onto a paved, covered rear patio overlooking the back garden. So there are lots of options for quiet moments, socialising and entertaining.

With an en suite shower, vanity and toilet and a walk-in robe, the king-sized master bedroom is at the front of the house, well away from the family bedrooms in a wing off the living area.

Two of these are doubles and one is a good-sized single, and all have carpet and built-in robes. The nearby main bathroom has a bath with shower over and a vanity, and the toilet is separate, off the adjacent laundry.

This is a well-maintained home with hard-wearing timber-look vinyl flooring throughout the main traffic areas and living room, and all blinds, tiling and décor are in good condition.

Children of all ages will appreciate the big, fenced back yard, which has an expanse of lawn for cricket and footy and a garden shed.

The double garage has drive-through access from one side to a paved hardstand for the trailer at the back, as well as a door into the kitchen.

The highly appealing property is within easy reach of a supermarket, chemist, TAFE and schools and a few minutes’ drive from town.

If you want a home to move straight in to, or a rental with potential for good returns, you owe it to yourself to take a closer look. Contact Lee Stonell on 0409 684 653 or lee@merrifield.com.au to arrange an appointment to view before this opportunity passes.
