Here’s an exciting property well worth your inspection if you’re considering a character home with lots of potential to value add – and this one has the added benefits of being on a huge block with strong subdivision prospects only 1km from Albany’s CBD.
Built in the 1950s, the home displays exposed jarrah floors and high, decorative ceilings, while renovations have been carried out to the kitchen and dining area, plus a fabulous extension has been added to the rear.
There’s relatively little to do to make this a comfortable, charming home inside. Although some new guttering and an exterior paint job would make the place shine it will be money well spent considering the desirability of such a handy, central location and the potential to subdivide. Such improvements are reflected in the asking price of this appealing fibro and tile property, which sits on a 1,009sqm block in Barker Road, close to recreational facilities and a short drive from all the amenities of the town centre.
While it’s a sizeable home with heaps of parking, a garage and space for building sheds, the zoning of R40 Regional Centre Mixed Use opens up options for other interesting uses such as consulting rooms, offices or a cottage industry, in addition to straight residential.
The home as it currently presents boasts several spacious living areas. At the front is the lounge, with gas heating and access to a sunroom. The hallway leads through to an open family room and dining space with the modern kitchen on one side and reverse cycle airconditioning. An impressive, generous workspace, the kitchen has ample cabinetry, a stainless steel chef’s 5 burner stove top and 900mm oven, dishwasher and wide breakfast bar.
Through glazed doors from the family room is a terrific curved-roof patio running the width of the house. An addition to the original building, this is big enough for family parties, with zones for relaxing and eating, ceiling fans, a wood fire and a basic kitchen with a sink for cleaning the barbie.
All bedrooms are doubles and the bathroom has a bath, separate shower and vanity. The toilet is located near the laundry at the rear end of the home.
There is ample width down the side of the house to access the existing garage or create a driveway for a battle axe subdivision.
The enclosed back yard is mostly in lawn, and there’s a private, covered deck with a spa bath adjoining the patio at the rear of the home.
This property presents an exceptional and rather unique opportunity, and the rewards are clear for a buyer recognising the many advantages and significant potential of what is on offer here.
