Set in one of Perth's most desirable heritage precincts, this charming renovated and extended, light-filled worker's cottage is the perfect place to raise a family.

Set back from the street behind a high timber fence, this turn of the century weatherboard cottage welcomes you plenty of coveted off-street parking and a winding recycled brick path that leads you to the striking recently replaced jarrah verandah. Renovated in keeping with the charm of the original cottage, the home has been transformed for modern living while retaining a sense of history. Featuring the hallmarks of its era including timber floorboards, sash windows and high ceilings, these character features now respectfully exist alongside contemporary finishes such as granite benchtops.

The original part of the home has been modified to offer two bedrooms, one with large walk through robe and ensuite, a study as well as a second living area and the wonderfully renovated family bathroom and separate laundry.

Beyond the old you step into the delightful extension containing a fantastic open plan living and dining area with a spacious and stylish contemporary kitchen and wide breakfast bar with spectacular kashmir granite top. These light-filled living zones flow through to a wonderful outdoor entertaining area featuring everything you need for year-round comfort - cafe blinds for winter, ceiling fan for summer, a barbecue kitchen for alfresco entertaining and more. Wide slabs of cedar decking continue the stylish warmth established inside, while glass fencing provides clear views across the heated swimming pool. A small set of steps takes you to the grassy lawn.

A spiral staircase leads to two more wonderful bedrooms upstairs with painted timber-panelled ceilings, perfect for children and teenagers alike.

You can relax knowing that you can park your car off the street and live a bygone lifestyle where you can walk your children to kindy or primary school and the older ones can make their own way to primary school or to John Curtin College of the Arts.

You won't want to leave your happy home - and the good news is you don't need to go far to get coffee, go shopping, allied health professionals or even groceries. This 506sqm property is merely steps from the cafes & shops of George Street and 5 minutes stroll to Swan River. A slightly longer walk to Sweetwater Rooftop Bar, the grocery store or the Left Bank or to take in a concert at the Fremantle Arts Centre. It's a mere 5 minutes' drive to both the beach and the centre of Fremantle. This beautiful neighbourhood is filled with charming cafes and shops, excellent schools, wonderful people and surrounded by beautiful nature. It manages to be laid back, yet still action packed; trendy without being pretentious.

This delightful home gives you the space and separation to move through all life stages - two lounge rooms and a study, plus 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs and heated swimming pool.

There can only be one lucky buyer for this gorgeous home - don't let someone else beat you to it!
