Over 2 roomy storeys, this just over 171m2, 4 large bedrooms + a smaller bedroom (can also be a nursery or study) with a large storage area, 2 bathroom, 2 WC home sits on 1 acre, which backs onto the Avon River at a spot known as the 'Mile Pool' where it is well known historically as having water all year round. It's a fantastic location that allows for outdoor living along the river. A developing equine centre is nearby, featuring the oldest inland race track in Australia. A nearby footpath allows for a comfortable walk into town if you choose or a quick trip in the car for shopping.
This fully insulated, cyclone rated Bovelle Western Red Cedar & Iron home built in 1999 boasts a light-filled, 2014 new kitchen, floating timber floors, front verandah & an outdoor entertaining area at the back with cafe blinds, an additional living area upstairs and a private balcony/deck looking out over Mount Bakewell. A reverse cycle split system air-conditioner, ceiling fans and a huge slow combustion burner will see you comfortably through the contrasting seasons in York.
Downsize from the farm with ample room in two great sized sheds: one with hard standing and room for 2 cars plus a workshop, and the other shed even larger with a workshop and room for 2 cars / machinery. Established chicken coups and a large fully fenced backyard, with rear access to the river, will see your domestic pets 'Happy as Larry'. Brand new in 2015, the colourbond fencing on either side of the boundary for the house almost encloses the front yard. It would be a simple job to add a gate to fully enclose it.
This is a very lovely as well as an historic part of the world. York is the first inland town in Western Australia. The opulent days of the Gold Rush are evident in the grand, historic buildings, built by famous architects, located along the streets in the townsite and throughout the countryside.
