Treasured by the same family since it was built in the early 1960s, this 4-bedroom home offers an extraordinary opportunity. Whether you're looking to renovate, extend or completely redevelop, this is one you don't want to miss.
It's in an elevated north-facing position on one of East Fremantle's best streets, and boasts cinematic views - across the meandering Swan River, protected bushland, moored yachts, and all the activity on the water. On the horizon, Perth's majestic skyline commands attention. By night, the city lights sparkle in the distance.
The home's existing floor plan showcases a huge amount of space on offer. And from the enormous entry hall, to the kitchen comfortably accommodating a 6-seater table - everything is fabulously oversized.
At the front of the home, a generous living room opens to a spacious, cantilevered balcony. Here, the wide-open views of the river and city can be seen from indoors and out. The formal dining room spills out to the front terrazzo tiled veranda and the backyard, where you have an extra-large covered terrace, and lawn area, perfect for family entertaining.
By redesigning these living, dining and kitchen areas into an open plan living zone, you would further open up those dreamy views, and maximise the benefit of the northern-orientation (warming sunlight in wintertime) and perhaps even contemplate adding a second storey (Subject to Council Approval).
Buyers who have a desire to work with the home's mid-century bones will also be pleased to note the high ceilings, as well as the high standard of workmanship throughout.
You'll be keen to know even the double car garage with new roller doors is oversized and houses a wonderful cellaring space.
The property holds a prime position in this friendly & upbeat neighbourhood, surrounded by quality homes. It's just a short stroll from lifestyle amenities, including East Fremantle Yacht Club, sports clubs, and the much-loved Bicton baths. The thriving George Street cafe strip is close by, as is the heart of Fremantle, and beautiful Leighton Beach.
In addition, the property is in a unique 'triple-catchment' area, which includes Melville Senior High School, John Curtin College of the Arts, and the new Fremantle College (opening at the beginning of 2018).
There's so much untapped potential to capitalise on here... don't let someone else beat you to this extraordinary opportunity.
