Catch the first breath of the sea breeze here on one of the highest points of South Fremantle, looking out to Carnac island. This early thirties home is full of charm, with unusually large rooms, very high ceilings and a big elevated deck for relaxing in the view. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, it retains its historic character with an organic, creative feel perfectly suited to this wonderful community location five minutes' walk to the beach.
Through the bright red front door is a high hallway with the original wide jarrah boards leading through to a large lounge and two very spacious bedrooms. Beyond is a third bedroom or study, and the old-style enclosed sleepout faces north with its own entrance and sitting room. The jarrah floors continue into the big bathroom, with pressed tin features, bath and lovely northern light.
This fabulous location really unfolds in the galley kitchen and dining area, with the ocean before your eyes and bifold doors opening to the big deck for relaxation and entertaining. Look down to the western garden, with beautiful high limestone walls, recycled brick paths, mosaic features, and fragrant gardens of exotics and natives. There's an outdoor shower, laundry outbuilding and original outdoor loo, as well as a handy door to the garage and undercroft storage space. Vehicle access is from Scott Street, with secure garaging for one vehicle as well as plenty of street parking.
Full of personality and surprises, this home is delightful just as it is, but also has potential for realising your own dreams of the South Freo life in this great location so close to the ocean.
