Stunning surprises unfold beyond the tuckpointed brick facade of this Federation home: a chic 21st century extension and a series of entertaining terraces rising up behind, topped by a circular glass-walled pool. Contemporary creativity with an eye to light, simplicity, space and functionality makes the most of this elevated location, bringing flair to a character classic.
The white picket fence and cottage gardens lead up to the front veranda: a lovely place to sit and enjoy the treetop views to North Fremantle and Mosman Park, and to engage with the village life of the famously friendly Plympton community. Inside the leadlight front door, the traditional high-ceilinged, jarrah-floored hallway leads to two charming bedrooms, each with a wall of storage, original plasterwork and plantation shutters. Then, step into the 21st century and the open-plan kitchen, dining and living, with its beautifully tiled floor and stunning glass wall framing the extraordinary outdoor living areas beyond.
The kitchen is chic and luxuriously simple, with engineered stone top bench, integrated sinks and a full suite of stainless steel appliances. A north-facing 4th bedroom with built-in storage offers wonderful versatility, and two beautiful modern bathrooms, one with bath and wet room shower, offer the sleek clean-lined design that characterises this superb extension. Beyond the stair lies a secluded master suite, complete with walk in wardrobe and plantation shutters, and its own private access to a magnificent timber deck.
Through the open-plan kitchen/dining the alfresco is spectacular, with an angled white roof, remote control shade blinds, ducting for air conditioning, and a towering limestone side wall that climbs the block past a series of terraced garden spaces, creating a fabulous contemporary entertaining and relaxing area.
Totally unique, fascinating for children and adults alike and complete with sweet timber cubby, these tiered outdoor areas really showcase the elevated block. Once you reach the top, you're rewarded with an incredible sense of space from the expansive hilltop view.
This is one of the most charming and sought-after locations in East Fremantle: near George St cafes and boutiques, a short walk to the river, East Fremantle Primary School and John Curtin College of the Arts, handy to Fremantle centre and with the welcoming Plympton atmosphere. How perfect to find a fabulously functional home that combines character with an out-of-the-ordinary contemporary extension, plus that amazing pool that will be the talk of the neighbourhood.
