Property Description

Stunning views over town and the harbour!

It’s easy to drive right past a block like this and not realise its true potential and value.

1. At first glimpse, you’ll notice that you can see gorgeous water views even from the roadside and that the neighbours on both sides are already in place. This means you can plan your build in the best position to enjoy privacy and views. Positive 1.

2. You also realise that you’re on one of the highest streets in Albany and that you look down on the little enclave of homes below on Grey Street East. All the homes naturally face the views which add privacy to whatever you build. Positive 2.

3. The block is wide at the roadside 19.8m with the right-hand side 26.1m and the left-hand side 31.7 m. The back is 10.7m. When looking at a tapered block, you usually want decent road frontage – especially if you’re planning direct access to the home and garages from the road. Having a block like this allows you to take full advantage of the western position and the glorious afternoon sun (summer and winter) and enjoy maximum privacy and the most spectacular views from the northwest to the south, overlooking town, Princess Royal Harbour and out to the wind farm on Torndirrup. The front will probably be a lawned area, so a 10.7m back is ideal too.

Only locals know that this area has a second massive benefit. Let’s face it, Albany can get very windy – we’re living at the sea after all. Mt Clarence has your back and will protect you from the nasty south easterlies, which is no small fry. Positive 3.

4. The next consideration is the dreaded potential of losing your views as there is a vacant block adjacent to the back boundary. This block (Lot 36 on the pictures) has a 28m back boundary and looking down at it from 47A, your views will be towards the left of this block and beyond. Yes, the block is a lot lower so you should be safe, but there is even better news. Take a walk down there and I’m sure you’ll agree that in order to enjoy the best possible views on 36, they’ll probably build a small double-story home on the far side of the boundary. It makes sense.

Secondly, we have a Restrictive Covenant, Document RD K778643 registered against Lot 36 as extra protection for Lot 37. When this block (36) was subdivided from 37, restrictions were placed on building heights and the type of building construction permitted. Point d) in this document also states the following: “…any garage or carport unless it is set back a minimum of 5 m from the boundaries of the covenantor’s property (37) or 3 m where 2 additional car parking spaces are provided elsewhere on the covenantor’s property.”

I recommend checking with a qualified surveyor if this block is of any concern to you. This is my interpretation of the block and documentation at hand. I believe the likelihood of any building on block 36 severely influencing your plans and views, is minimal. Positive 4.

5. Last but not least is the price. If you’ve been searching for a block in town, you’ll be well aware that they’re very few and far between, purely because it’s in town. Most of these blocks are immediately snapped up as investments or held in trust by families for the next generations, so it is a rare commodity, especially if they offer expansive views as well. Positive 5, giving this block a rating of 5/5.

Get in touch if you’re looking for a block to build your dream home with extensive water views while sipping sundowners in near windless conditions on your gorgeous deck – or looking for somewhere safe to invest your money.

Please contact the exclusive agent Jess on 0410 631 335 for more information. I’m happy to meet you at the block to discuss all the advantages of owning this rare slice of paradise.
