Steps away from Monument Hill on the edge of town, this captivating weatherboard cottage is restored, renovated and totally charming. All the historic atmosphere is here: floors of jarrah, Oregon and Wandoo, classic front verandah, bay windows and high ceilings, with walled gardens, north-facing open-plan living and rear parking. This perfect city-side location offers complete convenience along with a feeling of seclusion, tranquility and irreplaceable century-old character.
With shady trees, curved limestone garden beds, recycled brick paths and raised timber planters for herbs and vegies, the front garden is pretty and welcoming. The bay windows are a delightful feature, and the home opens to the traditional hallway with two bedrooms either side. One has floor-to-ceiling storage plus a weatherboard addition adjacent, easily converted to an en-suite bathroom. Beyond is the air-conditioned open-plan living, with lime-washed timber ceiling, built-in wood combustion stove, computer nook and two sets of French doors - one leading to a little western courtyard, and the other opening to the charming walled garden at the rear. This is an inviting space for outdoor dining and relaxation, with outdoor shower, alfresco clawfoot bath and a gate leading to rear parking for one car. The kitchen features jarrah and granite benchtops, Miele induction cooktop, Neff wall oven and grill, plus a classic Metters stove. The white bathroom has a jarrah-topped vanity and bath, micro-chipped pet door and double access from the rear gardens. Off the open-plan living is another bedroom, plus a north-facing study with its own French doors to the garden.
With stylish developments happening further east down Blinco Street, this location is just getting better and better. Walk to town, explore the local schooling options in walking distance (John Curtin, CBC, East Fremantle Primary) and stroll up the monument for the sunset. Everyone who sees this beautiful cottage falls in love with it, so come, see and make it yours.
