If you’re hankering for a big lifestyle block but don’t want to compromise on location near schools, sports and other family amenities, this property 1.5km from Albany’s CBD may just fit the bill.
Equally, out-of-towners looking for a city bolthole in a natural country setting would be hard pushed to find a more picturesque property for their weekends near the coast.
It’s a 2908sqm holding with a 1930s cottage, priced to attract astute buyers recognising the enormous prospects it offers.
There’s work to be done, but the rewards are many for buyers prepared to replace, extend or renovate the cottage and make the most of the delightful parkland block.
The land is mostly in grass with stands of native vegetation for shelter and character, and several fruit trees. It’s ideal for running a few head of stock, and with two freshwater ponds as well as the Yakamia Creek flowing past the boundary, there’s ample water for a horticulture venture.
A huge willow and several mature gums provide shady seating areas around the block for relaxation and appreciation of the tranquility and green space, and there’s plenty of scope for children to work off their energy in natural surroundings.
Built of rendered brick, the cottage still displays the essence of its origins, though it has been extended at some stage.
Screened from the road by tall trees, it sits amid mature gardens with a circular driveway at the front.
Inside, it comprises a lounge, kitchen, dining space, one bedroom, laundry, shower and toilet, and has undercover patios at the front and rear.
While renovation or extension are possibilities, a modern home in its place, with generous living spaces, al fresco areas and sheds, would bring all the benefits of this idyllic location into a new era.
The property, to be sold ‘as is’, is realistically priced for a well-located and easily managed block of this size.
