Rambling spaces, flourishing gardens, a welcoming feeling and room for everyone - those are the true luxuries of the ideal family home, and this extended character classic on a large block has it all. With only two owners since it was built in the early 1930s, it is easy to see why it is so treasured, and this is a remarkable opportunity to create your family life in this quiet, leafy street in a prestigious East Fremantle location.
Stunning zinclight windows, high ornate ceilings and timber detailing, gleaming jarrah floors and garden views everywhere make the interior atmosphere something special, while the huge back yard is perfect for play, relaxation and entertaining. The long table under the wisteria looks out to the expansive pool, and even the pool fence is covered with climbing roses - part of the very pretty and shady gardens lovingly created over the decades.
Out front, walk under the rose bower to the front verandah, and through to the entry and lounge room, where lovely light filters through the zinclight windows. Double glass and timber doors open to the formal dining room, which then leads through to the kitchen. Renewed with Tasmanian oak cabinetry and German appliances, this kitchen is open to the family living and casual dining space, which flows to the outdoor dining, lawn, gardens and pool. A generous office or study also has doors to the garden, with side access making it ideal for a home business. There's also a library zone off the hallway, generous blue and white bathroom with bath, and two gracious bedrooms in the original part of the home - the master with extraordinary decorative ceiling and restful aspect over the front garden. Sensitive extensions have added a children's bedroom zone towards the rear, with two bedrooms with built-in-robes plus a second bathroom.
Set in a quiet family friendly street, you are not far from the river, close to the Petra Street shopping precinct and five minutes by car to the centre of Fremantle. Come and experience this gracious, expansive family home and imagine what it would be like to be only the third family in around eighty years to own it.
