The clas­sic, mid-cen­tury ex­te­rior im­me­di­ately catches the eye on ap­proach to this home.

With its sim­plis­tic de­sign and clean lines, the 1950s home of­fers a slice of com­fort­able retro liv­ing right in the heart of Al­bany.

In­side, the charm con­tin­ues. Warm-toned jar­rah floor­boards spread through­out the home and dec­o­ra­tive cor­nices frame the rooms. Large tim­ber win­dows max­imise the abun­dant light and warmth from its north-fac­ing as­pect and al­low the stun­ning wa­ter views to the south to be en­joyed.

The clas­sic home has been up­dated to max­imise its com­fort but to not lose its old-world charm.

A semi-open-plan de­sign, the cosy liv­ing area ad­joins to the newly up­dated kitchen and din­ing area where the jar­rah floors are il­lu­mi­nated by sparkling down­lights. French doors open to a large deck with cafe blinds all around where the view over Al­bany and Princess Royal Har­bour can be en­joyed.

Through lead­light doors a hall­way is found off which there are two large sunny bed­rooms. The mod­ern bath­room has a large bath, a shower and van­ity and a big walk-in robe ad­join­ing. One of the bed­rooms has ac­cess to this bath­room as a semi-en­suite. The third bed­room has its own en­suite and is found at the back of the home where the view can be en­joyed.

Set on a well-sized 688sqm block, there is plenty of space in the back­yard to en­joy.

There is also a par­tially lined shed at the end of the block that would be per­fect as a games or hobby room.
