Tucked away on a quiet little street, this handsome limestone cottage is proof that great things come in small packages.
On a very manageable 209sqm block, the 2-bedroom home radiates with classic 'Gold Rush' appeal. It's elevated off the street, with iron lacework and flowering vines framing the entrance. Facing north, the front veranda soaked in all-day winter sun, and catches a gentle ocean breeze.
Stepping inside, you'll love the grand hallway arch, the wide timber floorboards, the exposed brick, and the towering ceilings (complete with decorative cornicing and ceiling roses). There are also 3 charming fireplaces for winter warmth and ambience.
A classic limestone semi with hallway down one side, both bedrooms are large and there's an open plan kitchen/dining as well as a big living room. The kitchen opens on to a private, easy care rear garden and the bathroom and laundry are also at the rear. The property has been freshly painted and is perfect for moving straight into. There is also, however, opportunity to add further value you down the track.
This is a prime opportunity to secure a charming heritage home in a premium precinct, close to the buzz of Fremantle - Burt Street has that quintessential Freo vibe, with historic homes lining each side and has views to the iconic red cranes.
It's within 5 mins stroll of Geisha Coffee Co, The Mantle, the Art Centre and the waterfront. The Cappuccino Strip, train station, Fishing Harbour and the famous markets are also within an easy walk, and Leighton Beach is 10 mins by bike or 3 mins by car. The home is also in the sought-after school zones for East Fremantle Primary and Melville Senior High, and a short walk to John Curtin College of the Arts.
