Pure joy

PERCHED at the top of quaint Agnes street in Beaconsfield the only thing more inviting than this 1903 semi-detached cottage is the elevated view of the ocean.

This two bedroom/one bathroom Federation home offers far more than what you would expect from a semi-detached, with size being far from an issue.

Walking through the front door you are greeted with well-preserved high ceilings, decorative roses and jarrah floors which give away its ancestry.

However, a neat modern addition is skylights, which combine with the white walls and ceilings to provide a warm and natural light so often missing from character homes.

The main bedroom overlooks the classic front timber verandah and a low-maintenance patch of garden. This wonderful flooding of sunlight continues throughout the home, and the kitchen benefits the most because of the full-length bi-fold doors opening onto the back garden. The light helped to warm the stone flooring, and with spacious benches for food prep, it’s the perfect place for entertaining—especially in warm snaps like we’re having now.

I was impressed by the size of the back yard, and particularly the magnificent poinciana tree which offers some sprawling shade.

The large rectangular lawns is framed by some tidy plants—I’d probably add a few—and all on a healthy 590sqm.

Tucked up in the corner of the garden is a teenage pad/shack featuring a laundry and plenty of potential for a renovation, perhaps even a second level to get some ocean views.

There’s been a resurgence in love for the outside loo courtesy of Fremantle’s heritage festivals, and this home has one sure to attract attention with its bright red door and arched brickwork.

The locals are friendly, and crafty, and Agnes St is full of colour for the annual  Airing of the Quilts come November.
