WITH the phrase “a hundred thousand welcomes” imprinted in Celtic on the decorative leadlight window at the entrance, it’s clear this four by two home is more than inviting.
Located across the road from Raceway Park in the heart of East Freo, this mock-heritage home displays a delightful contrast of deep red recycled brick and luscious limestone.
An impressive and very meaty timber staircase greets you on entry and its hefty beams, sourced from a once-thriving Fremantle woolstore, sets the scene for the rustic downstairs.
I couldn’t help myself and ran up the staircase as quickly as I could, like I have done many a time in my old childhood home.
The staircase is central to the generous open plan living area and kitchen, that features warm timber floor boards, white brick walls and timber lined ceilings with more of those magnificent beams.
The main bedroom overlooks a well-trimmed backyard garden, and allows the afternoon sun to trickle into the space. A walk-in wardrobe connects the bedroom to the ensuite bathroom, with leadlight windows and a voluminous antique claw-foot bath.
The living space contains windowed double doors that open up to the rear timber decked verandah enabling an indoor/outdoor living area.
In the low maintenance backyard garden, the foliage and vegetation act as a screen providing a private and secluded space as there is no overlooking houses.
The character of the home flows on through to the backyard, with the quirky garden shed located in the back corner with street signs attached, pointing in every direction.
Situated within close proximity to local shops, schools and parks this home has an ideal location and is perfect for families.
