This charming, turn-of-the century heritage home is the perfect mix of old and new, tucked away on a generous block in the heart of Fremantle.
There is plenty to love about the circa 1902 stone cottage - from its original character features, including high ceilings, archways and wide polished floorboards, to its cosy yet spacious living room and the standout - a brand new, contemporary bathroom.
No expense was spared in its renovation and it is sure to impress, with striking on-trend black and white encaustic floor tiles, floor-to-ceiling white subway tiles, a big double shower and a stylish wood-topped vanity.
Centrally located, the low-maintenance home is a quick drive to South Beach, a mere walking distance to local shops and to the hustle and bustle of Fremantle's cappuccino strip.
The front facade has original tuck-pointing and its heritage limestone walls have been beautifully restored.
There is an automatic gate to the driveway where you can easily park up to three cars and the enclosed garage fits another two cars in tandem.
Back inside, the master and minor bedrooms mirror one another off a wide entry hallway.
The master bedroom has an original working fireplace, double glazed windows, a ceiling fan, a reverse cycle air-conditioning unit and soaring ceilings.
At the heart of the home is the living room, which has a large open window to the kitchen, a working fireplace for cosy winter evenings, plantation shutters, a ceiling fan and polished floorboards.
The light and bright, well-designed kitchen is not short on storage space, with an array of cupboards and drawers and a big walk-in pantry that could easily fit any size fridge.
There is also a Bosch dishwasher, wraparound timber benchtops, funky new light fittings and a stainless steel oven and cooktop.
Additional highlights of the home include double-glazed windows, skylights in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as well-maintained, original terrazzo flooring to the kitchen and the rear hallway.
The tiered backyard is perfect for year-round entertaining with its generous-sized, covered alfresco area.
Limestone steps lead to a landscaped grassed area surrounded by a vegie patch, with shade provided by large lush lemon and olive trees.
Opposite this space is a storage shed, framed by a limestone walled garden. The shed could easily be converted to a granny flat, a playroom for the kids, or a teenage hideaway.
This abode is a rare find for Fremantle - offering a classy mix of funky and modern features, while carefully retaining and respecting its turn of the century charisma.
