Behind the tall limestone wall which offers complete privacy sits this character Fremantle cottage with a surprisingly large beautiful garden.
The rear of the property is truly a quiet and private oasis, attractively laid out with large mature trees providing shade in summer as well as decked areas opening up onto a large lawn area to relax or entertain in.
Thanks to its high ceilings and large windows, the home is particularly bright, spacious and airy, whilst retaining the character and features of the 1920's South Fremantle cottage, such as the stunning polished jarrah floorboards and ornate ceiling features. As is typical of the homes of the time, the bedrooms are very large and well proportioned. One of them features a beautiful exposed-brick wall.
The home has been thoroughly sound-proofed and all the front windows are fitted with double-glazing, making it a remarkably quiet family home.
The house has been renovated and boasts a large open-plan living area and kitchen with new stone worktops, as well as a concertina window which opens up to the width of the room and lets the sea breeze through the home. A brand new air conditioning system was also recently fitted.
An extension at the back includes a third bedroom, a lovely bathroom with a superb claw-foot bath and French Provincial style window and a practical dual-purpose laundry/study.
The rear of the home opens up to a large covered entertainer's deck with a beautiful view over the garden, perfect for entertaining or playing.
This is one of South Fremantle's best gardens: quiet, private, large and lush.
The layout of the garden is well thought-out and includes several entertaining or relaxation areas, perfect to enjoy the garden at all hours of the day and evening. It is perfect for children, pets or those wonderful summer garden parties.
A huge and versatile studio as well as a workshop supplement the yard and provide ample additional space to work, host, entertain or play. A large shed tucked away behind the studio also provides additional storage or workspace.
With two driveways there is ample parking on the property, including easy access through an automatic gate.
The front of the home has the classic verandah with vines, perfect for sitting back and enjoying the shade with a book and glass of wine.
The location of this property is second to none, with a range of shops a few hundred metres away and the famous South Fremantle cafe strip and South Beach just a short walk away. Fremantle centre is also a short bus, walk or bike ride away.
One of the most consistent growth suburbs of the last decade, this area is highly sought after and it's not hard to see why: it has everything within easy reach - beaches, cafes, boutique stores, parks, great culture, music scene and bars just to name a few.
