      **The owner welcomes you to walk on the block**
      The Last North Facing 5 Acre.
      I am very privileged to offer for sale one of the last remaining vacant 5 acre north facing blocks in the Canning Valley. Not only can you not buy these blocks anymore, but the level of privacy you would have while still being literally minutes to all amenities is becoming very scarce too.

      This block actually still has a rural zoning (RL2) which means you will be allowed to do more with it as well. I have walked the whole block and can tell you my photographs don't fully capture the incredible view and it is very well priced.

      Think about sustainable living, the potential for going 'off the grid' with a solar panel array and batteries, growing your own fruit and vegetables by means of permaculture, and the potential to design and build an energy efficient solar passive home making full use of the sun and the northern aspect of the land. Gary Green is an expert in these types of homes after building many of them and is ready and happy to take calls free of charge on 9397 6599 to discuss your dream. Gary is the director of Custom Built Homes and has been building stunning homes in the Perth hills for over 30 years now.

      Eventual vehicle access is vital with these blocks because in my eyes it must be done correctly in order to create a gradual incline that even the most novice driver could easily navigate when they come to visit you. I have discussed 10 Rowley Street at length with Gary and he has explained there are many options here. The first is to use the existing driveway which comes off the end of the culdesac and down a ramp before eventually turning left into the block (see pictures). The second option which Gary explained is that he could easily build up the ground level on the corner of the block where the culdesac is and build a nice gradual 'S' shaped driveway that slowly comes down to the block and one of the possible building sites for a reasonable price. This option could also save you money as it is shorter than the first.

      He has also assessed that the new requirements for the BAL fire risk rating would not be a hurdle here because even though the block is healthily treed with Wondoo and River Gums, they are not too dense and would most likely give a low fire risk rating when compared to other blocks on the market. Keep in mind that this can also reduce building costs because the BAL rating can directly affect the minimum requirements for building materials used. He also explained that while a concrete slab home is possible here, if the buyer chose to build a pole home the site costs could be as low as $45,000 depending on the size!

      Features of the block include fencing almost all of the way around and the majority of it is in good condition. Some of it would require some TLC if you want to keep in animals though. Power, water and phone are all available close by from Rowley Street.

      I am going to be inundated with calls with this one so please get in early as this will be snapped up. If I could buy this myself I would. I look forward to working with you.
