OVER AN ACRE OF AMAZING VALUE
18 Turner Place, KELMSCOTT WA 6111
It just blows my mind that this tremendous opportunity even exists.
4,401 sqm of land, over an acre, in a fantastic location that provides a beautiful rural feel yet is remarkably close to everything.
– Usable land
– A huge workshop approx. 15m x 8m PLUS a lean-to
– Bore reticulation
– A big home
– 4×2 plus a study
This is a property that offers you so much now, and is zoned R15/40, which means if offers you so much in the future.
This well-built home has seriously usable space. With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study it’s got great living space.
There are two fantastic living areas, with the family room at the front of the house and the huge main living area at the back. The raked ceilings offer a real sense of space in this very practical design. The kitchen offers plenty of storage and functional workspace.
The master bedroom is big and there are built-in-robes and the large ensuite bathroom is excellent. The secondary bedrooms are all of a very reasonable size, and the main bathroom is original but very neat, tidy and clean.
Getting to the facts before I get caught up being all awestruck about its very existence…
This is over an acre of land, backing onto a creek that feed to the nearby Canning River. You can really use every bit of this block because the land is flat and workable. This was all orchard land and it is still great dirt that you can dig and grow stuff in. There’s a bore so you can plant stuff and keep it living.
The workshop is approximately 15m x 8m and has plenty of height for a hoist if you’ve got some projects going on. There’s also a big lean-to approximately 8m x 7m… this is incredible. These are estimates taken from a those “about a metre” steps from my little legs, so come and measure for yourself (the shed, not my legs).
The large garage adjacent to the house offers great parking space, plus a bit of extra storage. Which is, you know, handy, when you only have over 120sqm of workshop space.

JUST A MINUTE, WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH ZONING R15/40?
This isn’t an extract from the planning guidelines, but it’s a rough guide to how it all works. Definitely ask a town planner before making a decision about any property that you may want to subdivide because they’re able to give advice, the following is just a broad explanation of things.
So, if you look at most properties around and check the zoning you’ll normally see something like R15/25, or R15/40. Basically, the way the zoning bit works is that each code has some minimum requirements you need to meet if you want to subdivide. The most significant starting point being the minimum size of the new lot you want to create.
With the something/something zoning, you can potentially subdivide at the requirements of the larger number (meaning a smaller lot size which means you have a better chance of subdivision being approved). If it’s got the “slash” in the zoning it means you need to apply to the council and THEN apply to the Western Australian Planning Commission. It’s kind of like asking Dad, and then being told to ask your Mother.
When you see a straight R40 zoning it means Dad said yes and that’s that, no need for two levels of agreement. Under the R40 guidelines, your minimum lot size is 180sqm. So…
BUT I DON’T WANT TO SUBDIVIDE
So, don’t! This is an incredible lifestyle just minutes from major shopping facilities, huge gyms, day-care centres, public transport and easy access to the Airport and the City. Albany Highway and Tonkin Highway are easy to access.
