House - Fremantle WA

A symphony of birdsong and impressive native trees frame first impressions of this charming and beautifully presented home on a warm and welcoming street lined with lovingly restored heritage cottages.

Original timber floors, white panelled walls and ceilings, and a classic wrap-around front porch (framed by a picket fence), are nostalgic reminders of the home’s ‘miner’s cottage’ history, which dates back to the late 1800s.

An impressive rear extension, seen from the entrance foyer, optimises a gloriously sunny, north-facing aspect while expanding the home.

High ceilings and a continuous row of servery windows from the open-plan kitchen and dining reveal a handy alfresco meals counter and enchanting north facing garden views; while an extra-large feature window frames lush green foliage – adding an element of indoor/outdoor living amongst a native landscape of waterwise classics.

Intentionally designed to draw on the Port City’s cooling sea breezes, the kitchen windows, along with a west-facing louvered window, can be fully opened to flood the home in refreshing ocean air and natural cross ventilation.

Elements of rustic country charm and touches of boho-chic are evident throughout this cosy residence, with a wood gas fire in the living room, and slate floors in the kitchen, extending to the rear extension where limestone walls and timber framed windows feature in the two bedrooms.

The original front bedroom with a built-in robe enjoys tranquil street frontage and garden views, while the master suite is privately secluded at the rear of the home, also enjoying garden access via French doors.

A double vanity bathroom, with a deep tub, joins the two rear bedrooms, along with a European-style laundry.

Two discreet garden sheds provide additional storage, and while rear parking for one is available via side laneway access, the wide street front provides practical parking for several vehicles, a boat or campervan.

Adored for its close-knit and friendly neighbourhood, there’s a distinct feeling of relaxed country-style living on this magical street.

Large parklands are just a stone’s throw away and the Cool Room and 9 seeds both easy walking distance. The river and beach are an easy bike-ride away, not to mention an abundance of excellent cafes, bars, restaurants and convenience options throughout Fremantle, George Street and Canning Highway, along with several open parkland areas, Royal Fremantle Golf Club and East Fremantle Primary School just minutes away.
