Happily ever after

From the street this East Fremantle home is a drop-dead gorgeous fairytale cottage, with delightful steepled roof pitches and a raw brick chimney and portico and cute dormer windows.

It’s hard to believe it’s only a couple of years old: Its timeless quality down to good design and the use of recycled materials including mellow old bricks, rich aged jarrah floors and lovely leadlight windows.

The heritage feel is carried through to the front rooms, a formal lounge and two of four bedrooms.

The lounge has all the hallmarks of an early art deco abode, including ornate ceiling, an old-style limestone fireplace and a cute bay window.

Step through to the rear of the home and your head will spin as old world is swapped for new, with a stunning, modern living/dining/kitchen area.

The kitchen is commodious with dual dishwashing drawers, a top-of-the-range Siemens oven and double fridge (which is staying).

Soft brown travertine splashbacks contrast with the darker brown timber cupboards, including a pull-out pantry, and acres of white travertine bench tops.

Most walls of the living/dining area are floor-to-ceiling glass, which look out onto a sparkling swimming pool, with a Bali-style cabana.

Two sets of bifold doors open onto a timber deck that forms an L-shape around the glass barriers of the pool.

The fourth bedroom is out here, a stunning guest suite with a huge bedroom and spacious bathroom—with separate shower and WC. Be warned: Guests may never want to leave.

The vendors are including a fair bit of furniture with the home—including the wardrobes and cupboards in the massive upstairs main bedroom—as it had been bought specifically for the place.

With its varying roof pitches and views across East Fremantle’s leafy environs you’ll feel you’re in your own fairytale whenever bedtime beckons.

When it comes to the kids, high fences and secure gates around the big 911sqm block allow them to take their games from front to back with no worries for the folks.

And when it comes to going to school the lovely Richmond primary school is a mere two streets away, as are a swag of interesting shops and cafes on Petra Street.
