Renovated Character Cottage
North Fremantle WA 6159POA
House - North Fremantle WA
Beyond an inviting picket fence – as well as a tree-lined façade – lies this beautifully restored and extended 4 bedroom 2 bathroom century-old character home that will warm your senses in a sought-after pocket between river and beach.
A bull-nose veranda entry deck makes an instant first impression behind a gated entrance, but it’s what lies within that will impress you the most.
The front of the home was extensively renovated between 2004 – 2007 retaining the original features of the home built circa 1900. Off the entrance hallway, you will find a large bedroom that also makes for an ideal home office/study or another lounge with its original fireplace and fitted bookcases.
The same features – with the addition of built-in wardrobes – are commonplace within the master and second and third bedrooms too. Every room features restored fireplaces with timber surrounds, large sash windows, ceiling roses, cornices and overhead fans. The main bathroom plays host to a bubbling corner spa bath.
An open-plan family, dining and kitchen area is where most of your casual time will be spent, gleaming wooden floorboards are prevalent and soaring high timber-lined cathedral ceilings add to an overwhelming sense of comfort and space. Classic leadlight windows allow the northern sunlight to filter through into the kitchen and dining area.
The functional and stylish kitchen delivers modern quality in the form of stone benchtops, a stainless-steel gas-cooktop/oven combination, an integrated range hood, glass splashbacks and three sinks in total. The space was thoughtfully designed for those who love to cook.
Upstairs, the second living or master retreat is attached to a semi-covered balcony deck that overlooks the pool area facing east and is the perfect place to sit back, relax and unwind – either with guests or alone in peace and quiet. Enjoy the morning sun from your upper deck as you look out over your tranquil and private backyard space.
The laundry and second bathroom are accessed easily from outside, with another feature leadlight window helping preserve some original nostalgia of yesteryear, accompanied by charming twin vanities, a striking claw-foot bathtub and a showerhead hanging over it.
With both Port and Leighton Beaches only a stone’s throw away, the Swan River and lush local parks nearby and the likes of North Fremantle Primary School, Harvey Beach, North Fremantle Train Station, bars, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance, this is a location like no other.
Here you will be in close proximity to excellent private schools, the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour and everything else that is great about Fremantle, you won’t want to live anywhere else.
