Embrace the exceptional opportunity to own an iconic Western Australian landmark at 8 Kiernan Street, Whitby. This extraordinary property showcases the renowned Whitby Falls Barns, embodying the spirit of a bygone era. Constructed in the 1980s as a complementary addition to the historic Whitby Falls Coach House*, these barns were originally used to store feed for the local Stockfeed Supplier. As the Coach House gained popularity as a tourist attraction during that period, the newly established Barns further enriched the narrative, harkening back to the Coach House's original construction in the 1890s. Originally part of the expansive grounds of the Whitby Falls Coach House, the titles have more recently been sold off to private owners and now the opportunity awaits for you to become custodian of the iconic Whitby Falls Barns.

The current house was cleverly designed and built by Ross Squire Homes to mimic the rustic charm of the stables and seamlessly blend into its charm. Enjoying a beautifully considered 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom floor plan the home has been constructed from a steel frame and is timber clad to maintain the presence of the original stables. The home is attached to a shed which used to be used as the hay store and in later years set he stage for shearing demonstrations when the property was part of the coach house. The current owners have planning approval for a master bedroom and ensuite for those looking to expand the floor plan to a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home.

During the current home's construction, the owners resided in a well-equipped front shed, featuring a convenient hot water system for easy cleanups. This shed holds incredible potential as a second dwelling, AirBnB, granny flat, guest accommodation, rumpus room, or additional storage. Add to this, the adjacent stables offer a toilet.

Capitalise on the future development of the Keirnan Park Recreation and Sports Precinct, strategically located just across the road. This property eagerly awaits your mark as an investment opportunity. The prime location promises increasing passing traffic once the facilties are built and operational, offering a prosperous future for businesses.

If you cherish the unique charm and possess a creative business mindset, this is your playground. Imagine childcare, medical centre, arts and crafts studio, gymnasium, or an educational hub focused on grassroots environmental initiatives. There's ample space for campers, motorhomes, boats, horse floats, and tents. Potential for a hipcamp venture with the necessary approvals.
