Rare Opportunity on Hill


It’s not often that something on the highly sought-after Hill Street comes up for sale – even rarer when the home is move-in ready and doesn’t need a fortune spent on immediate renovations.

The solidly constructed, low maintenance home boasts breathtaking views over Albany and Princess Royal Harbour, and was carefully designed with the magnificent outlook as its main focal point. This particular area is extremely popular with those in the know, so the blocks are rated R30, with 47 Hill Street measuring 470 m2.

One of the main benefits of homes on this side of town is that you’re protected from prevailing winds by Mount Clarence, so can enjoy your outdoor life to the fullest while still enjoying the magnificent views – plus get maximum winter sun.

A spacious double garage features from the left, offering extra space ideally suited for a little work shop or extra storage. A lovely, low-care garden on reticulation ensures the brick home has significant street appeal.

As you enter through the teal coloured front door you arrive at a landing with an office or small 4th bedroom to your left.  A large shared bathroom is on the right with a wall of built in cupboards opposite the bathroom.

The bathroom features a shower-over-bath, double basin and a separate loo. Directly next to the bathroom is the main bedroom – a large room boasting high ceilings and a deep walk in robe. This bedroom opens out onto a lovely balcony with glimpses over Mount Melville.

The balcony offers dual access to the open plan living area, which features big windows and a raked ceiling which make the home appear light, bright and spacious and allow beautiful winter afternoon sun into the home. A large balcony wraps around the south-west side of the home. The lofty elevation from the top of Hill Street allows you to look straight over your neighbour’s rooftops and out over Albany Entertainment Centre with Princess Royal Harbour to your right.

The kitchen follows the teal coloured theme and has a large pantry, plenty of cupboard and bench space and is well equipped with an electric oven and cooktop. The home is plumbed for a dishwasher, has a neat double sink facing out towards the views and has a handy breakfast bar which can seat up to 4 people.

A cosy fireplace and stylish feature wall complete the large living area which looks out onto both balconies. This helps to create an illusion of even vaster space with a fantastic indoor-outdoor flow. You could easily image yourself entertaining your friends and family in this area, sunbathing on one of the balconies or just gazing out to Princess Royal Harbour and town with a sundowner in hand.

A set of stairs off the living area lead down to the ground level of the home. Straight ahead is a delightful second living area leading out onto a large, paved patio that wraps around the back of the home. Downstairs are ideal for kids or guests as it provides them with a little more space and privacy to unwind at their leisure.

A further two bedrooms can be found on the downstairs level; both with built in robes and are good sized.

There is a surprisingly large storage area below the stairs which has power points and shelving -perfect for stowing away linen, vacuum cleaners or anything else as required. There is also more storage cleverly hidden below the staircase.

A generously sized bathroom is to the right of the stairs and boasts a large bath, shower and double basin. A separate toilet is to your right before you reach the laundry – a room with lots of cupboards, a double wash trough and direct access to the paved downstairs area.

You will note that a new home is being built next door, but don’t let it put you off putting this home at the top of your list. Like most of the other homes in this special enclave, the 180-degree views they enjoyed for many years are now less. True, this home has lost some views over Mount Melville due to progress, but the main views are still breathtaking over AEC and Princess Royal Harbour, and at this vantage point, should remain.

Viewing will confirm any possible doubts while the asking price reflects the current position, so this is a rare opportunity to get your foot in the door and live within easy walking distance to town while enjoying less wind, more winter sun and of course – spectacular outdoor living with views.

This home definitely won’t be on the market long, so please contact the exclusive agents Jess on 0410 631 335  for a private viewing today. 

Please note that the property is currently tenanted at $410 per week until mid March 2021.
