Simply perfect, full of light and surrounded by different views in all directions, this river precinct home absolutely shines. Here is the complete relaxation of a home that has been totally renewed with a fresh, clean, contemporary feel, while enjoying a traditional Fremantle location among heritage homes very close to the river. The views are endlessly interesting: Cantonment Hill's signal tower, the port, the river and the ocean are all laid out before you, as the stunning open-plan living and its three terraces are designed to make the most of this very special, elevated spot. With elegant bedrooms, well-designed low-maintenance gardens and the bonus of a flexible rear studio, this is a rare property in a quiet little street walking distance to the centre of town.
Set behind flourishing native gardens in tones of soft grey and green, the home is hand-rendered in white, with rosemary hedges bordering the aggregate driveway. The entrance is secluded at the side, opening to a light-filled lobby with beautiful pale tiles of the highest quality. There are three lovely bedrooms, all with built-in storage, one with a large window overlooking the front garden, and one currently configured as a study. The bathroom is simply luxurious, with glossy white cabinetry, full-height wall tiling, heated towel rail, frameless glass rainshower, double vanity, high quality tapware and a separate toilet.
A generous white laundry is also on this level.
Up the white, grey and steel spiral staircase is the incredible space which is the heart of the home: the open-plan kitchen, living and dining divided into zones but with great flow, and featuring lovely pale Italian timber floors. There is glass all around and three timber-ceilinged terraces, each with a different perspective on the landscape and the water. Two western terraces look out to the ocean, the treetops, the port and Cantonment Hill, and over to Leighton and Mosman Park. Concertina doors from the dining area open to the northern terrace, with its own river, port and ocean views. This is a great entertaining space, with a barbecue nook with stainless steel cupboards and sink. There is also a powder room on this level.
Downstairs, the rear deck leads through to a large two-roomed studio. This is a flexible space for a workshop, gymnasium and/or office, with potential to convert to independent studio accommodation with its own access.
This is a fresh, beautiful, perfectly presented home in a very desirable part of Fremantle: by the river, near the new Cantonment Hill park currently underway, close to the Arts Centre, very near George St shopping and cafes, with easy access to transport and walking distance to Fremantle Centre.
