9 Munster Avenue Albany WA 6330
BED, BREAKFAST AND BEYOND9 Munster Avenue, Albany
Taking this definition to new heights is this unique, bountiful and character filled 50's style home which is just seconds from the Albany CBD. Set below street level on a gently sloping block behind a tiered cascade of retaining wall, established trees and thriving lawn is the cottage feel frontage of the home.
Currently operating as a bed and breakfast, the front section of the home features a fully enclosed front veranda, textured white stucco walls and access to the first queen bedroom, a traditional art deco styled guest room with a showpiece mantle and disused fireplace, vintage carpet and a modern ensuite with glass shower, toilet, and vanity amongst terracotta tiles.
Having its own entrance, and able to be separated from the remainder of the home- this guest area has performed well as a private and feel good place for paying customers- extra thick walls meaning that noise exchange between the space and the main home is nonexistent.
A door from the front area, as well as a separate side entrance door welcome you into the large, multileveled open plan kitchen and dining area, which capitalises on exceptional views over town- lights glittering as a backdrop to your family meals at night.
The kitchen, while older style, is warm and inviting, with a large central island bench housing the electric cook top and surrounded by a mass of under bench and overhead cupboards, a dishwasher nook, electric oven and a four door pantry. Graced by solid wood floorboards and a wood fire and steps down to the window lined sunken living area, the space encourages shared dishes, laughter, clinking glasses and zest for life.
The flow of the remainder of the home is ingenious, with a U shaped hallway delving into the main sleeping quarters, brushing past storage before returning back to the living areas.
Your first port of call is the antique design bathroom, with rich rouge character tiling, a glass shower, extra deep bath and solid wood corner vanity. Vintage rose features tiles circle the space for extra elegance.
The first of the bedrooms is a large double size with fill wall built in robes, solid windows and a cracker view over town. Next comes a separate toilet before the hallway steps up to the next set of bedrooms. A character filled queen, a giant king and a long double room with space for occasional furniture finish off the interior, all kitted out with built in robes and able to be transformed if you would like a dedicated lounge room in the home.
Outside, and a freshly concreted rear driveway area provides a brilliant turning circle and plentiful parking for guest and family cars, boats, caravans or all of the above. A large paved patio area with screening for seclusion flanks the rear of the home, and leads to the farm house style laundry, full of storage space and ideal for a large family.
Beyond a lawn area surrounded by a lemon tree, cactus and other lush plantings comes a double carport in character colour bond. It leads to the workshop, garage and separate flat, which could easily be renovated to become a handy home studio, or a teenagers retreat.
Three phase power and more power points than you can poke a stick at make the area a highly functional place.
Finally, leading, Narnia like to Aberdeen Street, the sneaky back gate is your gateway to the CBD- making for a two minute walk to browse the shops, wine and dine, or to be the early bird at the farmers markets.
Its proximity to the schools and really to everything is one of the many shining lights waiting to be uncovered here!
