Spacious Sanctuary Offers Mix of History and Modern Living

Steeped in history, this circa 1890 character home offers a perfect blend of tranquillity, charm and abundance of areas to entertain.

Soaring cathedral ceilings to the rear open plan living area create a grand sense of space, while four courtyards allow for ease of entertaining or a quiet spot to unwind with a coffee or wine.

This impressive rear living area has enough room for a dining setting, lounge and bar or study/home office and sprawling windows ensure the space is flooded with natural light.

This room opens to a north facing, covered patio with plenty of space to entertain guests.

Adjacent is a store room which could easily be converted to a home office or play room for children.

In addition to its great central location, the home offers a discerning buyer the chance to own a special part of Fremantle's proud history.

The residence was home to American yachtsman Dennis Conner in 1987 during his America's Cup victory and was used as a headquarters for his team.

In addition to this, in 1986 the City of Fremantle commended the abode as a heritage building for enhancing the character of Fremantle.

Private and secure, the home's courtyards create a hidden sanctuary feel, with lush greenery and low-maintenance gardens creating a cosy ambience.

The large kitchen is at the heart of the home and is equipped with an abundance of benchtop space, American Oak cabinetry in the form of drawers, as well as overhead and under bench cupboards.

It features an industrial grade extractor fan, Westinghouse and Asko appliances and easy-care tiled flooring.

Clever cabinetry conceals a built-in laundry space within the kitchen.

The kitchen has access to courtyards at either side, making entertaining guests a breeze, with one space fitted with a built-in barbecue and sink.

Tiled steps from the kitchen lead up to the home's two generous-sized bedrooms and bathrooms, located at the front of the residence.

Spacious, with high ceilings, original ceiling roses and jarrah floorboards, the bedrooms have built-in robes and double-glazed windows with plantation shutters.

The light and bright ensuite is accessed via French double doors and has an Art Deco feel, with floor to ceiling tiling and a large shower and toilet.

The guest bedroom is adjacent to a separate toilet and bathroom, complete with a big spa bath and shower.

It boasts a prime and convenient location of being a mere walking distance to Beaconsfield and Fremantle primary schools and is in close vicinity to South Beach, walking distance to cafes and restaurants in South Terrace, the train station and the Fremantle cappaucino strip.
