Tucked away in the West End is an atmospheric hideaway created from limestone, glass, steel and timber, with an organic urban feel perfect for the historic atmosphere of the heart of Fremantle. Walk to everything - train, Bathers Beach, the Fishing Boat Harbour, restaurants and shopping - and come home to a secluded space full of character and individuality.
Through a series of gates and beyond a large central space lined with pencil pines and rosemary, the home opens to its own private outdoor lobby with built-in seating and high walls of limestone rubble and recycled brick. This seclusion means the front wall of the home can be transparent, so it rises in steel-framed glass, opening to the internal lobby with herringbone brick floor. The new bathroom is also on this level, with frameless glass shower, timber-topped vanity with huge square porcelain sink and stylish matt black cabinetry, incorporating a European laundry.
Up the timber and steel stairs is a large bedroom with timber floors, a wall of pale timber built-in-robes and black painted steel beams adding to the industrial feel. On the next level is a spacious mezzanine study, on the way up to the big surprise: an expansive kitchen, living and dining space, flooded with natural light. Here there is a great sense of openness, with fascinating views over the old architecture of the historic West End. The Oregon kitchen has a big central island, and the large living room is partially enclosed in steel-framed glass, to create a sense of continuous but independent space.
This is urban living with a difference, with a real sense of being in your own private hideaway but with everything on your doorstep. It's ideal for a couple or single, perfect to generate income from short-stay accommodation in this popular tourist destination, and a great investment in this unique pocket of old Fremantle.
