Originally constructed in the early 1900s, this gorgeous Victorian single fronted, weatherboard cottage has since evolved into what we think is one of Fremantle's most unique and intriguing residences currently on offer for sale.
A labour of love for the sellers, the property underwent significant renovations including a spectacular double storey extension which complements yet transforms this property into a functional, practical and stylish abode that you'll crave to spend time in.
The location of the home in the highly sought after Fremantle postcode provides a unique array and combination of lifestyle benefits not often seen including walkability to George Street, East Fremantle Primary School, East Fremantle Oval and local cafes & parks. Astute purchasers will indeed recognize this incredible opportunity.
Take time to admire the interior of the original home which retains the warmth character and charm of the period with pressed tin wall decals, high ceilings and solid timber flooring. With imposing high ceilings and archways in the entrance hallway, this section of the property features two bedrooms, one with an original fireplace and built in robes.
The central hub of the home is the sumptuous living and dining area. An additional fireplace reaches up through the high ceilings and feature skylight to provide a spectacular focal point. The adjacent kitchen is a gastronomical nirvana, featuring stainless steel worktops, high end appliances and direct access to the entertainment courtyard with feature pizza oven.
Adjacent to the main living zone, a glass sided hallway facing the courtyard leads you past a generous third bedroom, family bathroom and laundry and then to an additional living room - perfect for parents to escape.
Upstairs the spectacular master suite makes a statement with a high pitched ceiling, a bank of built in robes and double french doors opening out to a juliet balcony, overlooking the courtyard and to the treetops beyond - saturating the room in northern light.
An additional walk in robe is cleverly concealed behind the bedhead, and leads to a beautifully finished monochrome ensuite.
This truly is a home that needs to be inspected to be truly appreciated and offers a rare chance to secure a gorgeous heritage family home with a trendy, out of the box renovation.
