Two for the price of one in this fab­u­lous coun­try re­treat

Al­bany home has built-in B&B. By NATALIE HORDOV

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Liftout: Coastal & Country -

IF YOU are con­sid­er­ing a sea change but are not ready to re­tire, this prop­erty in Al­bany could be just what you are look­ing for. It in­cludes Hide­away Haven, a five-star, multi-award win­ning bed and break­fast.

Sell­ing agent Rob Ma­son said the unique res­i­dence was orig­i­nally built as a spa­cious two-bed­room home set high on bush poles over­look­ing graz­ing land, wet­lands, King Ge­orge Sound, Oys­ter Har­bour and Mt Martin.

“Later, a sep­a­rate home was built un­der­neath the orig­i­nal which cur­rently op­er­ates as Hide­away Haven,” he said.

“This lower sec­tion con­tains three be­d­rooms with en­suites, plus a com­mu­nal liv­ing area with kitchen and a laun­dry.”

Both homes ex­ude lux­ury.

The owner's home is 8m above ground and in­cludes an open-plan liv­ing area and kitchen with mag­nif­i­cent views.

The master bed­room also has out­stand­ing views, a walk-in robe and en­suite with dou­ble shower, dou­ble van­ity unit and corner spa.

The sec­ond bed­room could dou­ble as a study. The liv­ing area and master bed­room open to a wrap around bal­cony where you can en­joy a glass of wine, cof­fee or din­ner and the beauty of na­ture.

The be­d­rooms and liv­ing area in Hide­away Haven also open to decks, al­low­ing your guests to im­merse them­selves in the bush­land set­ting.

The home is on a 2179sq m block at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.

Mr Ma­son said birdlife and na­tive an­i­mals abound and the prop­erty is a sanc­tu­ary for the own­ers and their guests.

“The set­ting gives the feel­ing of iso­la­tion but in re­al­ity it is a five-minute walk to the lo­cal shop­ping cen­tre and a leisurely 10minute drive into the Al­bany city cen­tre,” he said.

“Close by is a boat ramp at Oys­ter Har­bour and it is a short drive to Mid­dle­ton Beach.

“Stun­ning Na­narup Beach is not far away and the pic­turesque Poron­gorup Ranges are only a 30-minute drive.”

Mr Ma­son said Hide­away Haven func­tioned beau­ti­fully as a bed and break­fast but would just as eas­ily suit multi-gen­er­a­tional fam­ily liv­ing, a yoga re­treat or life­style work hub where vis­it­ing staff could stay on­site. The prop­erty is for sale for $995,000. If you want to pur­chase the busi­ness and prop­erty the price is $1.1 mil­lion. ■
