This fully renovated weatherboard homestead on a generous corner block in a wide, tree-lined boulevard feels just like a family home should: welcoming verandah, big entertaining deck above the pool, impressive pizza oven to feed family and friends, inviting garden spaces and even a sweet timber cubby under the gumtree. With two large living areas, great flow from indoors to outdoors, high ceilings, jarrah floors and timber windows everywhere, this home has a genuinely warm feeling, in a wonderful community location minutes from Fremantle centre.
Behind a white picket fence set back from the street, a pretty garden of natives, roses, lawn and mature trees surrounds the expansive traditional weatherboard, painted in contemporary grey and white. Inside, the spacious layout is perfect for everyone to spread out, but with the inter-connectedness that is great for family life: a big kitchen flowing to open-plan living and dining, plus a large second living area with gas log fire, each opening to the expansive timber deck overlooking the pool and gazebo below. With built-in timber seating, high-pitched roof and ceiling fan, this fabulous space really extends the home into the outdoors and it's easy to see how much time you'll spend out here as spring has arrived and the summer approaches.
Overlooking the front garden and separate from the other bedrooms is the master suite, with fireplace, walk-through robe and en-suite. On the other side of the home, beyond the living areas, is a hallway so wide it is almost a room in itself, leading to three more bedrooms and a study. The timber windows are a real feature of this home, bringing in beautiful natural light and connecting the interiors to the surrounding garden. Storage will never be a problem here, with undercroft storage below and a huge attic loft accessed by dropdown ladder. Automatic timber gates open to offstreet parking bays and a freestanding weatherboard and iron garage building, which you could choose to use as a studio or workshop.
Here you can walk to kindergarten and primary school, Booyeembara Park is three blocks away, shopping is nearby down Wray Avenue or South Street and you are on the edge of historic Fremantle. In a peaceful, leafy spot full of birdsong, this warm family homestead sitting beautifully on its big corner block surrounded by gardens really is a rare find.
