Straight down the lime

HUGGING the corner block behind a meticulously decorated verge, this modern Beaconsfield home is easily one of the largest on the street.

But huge is the only way to describe the lime tree hidden down the side of the house. According to the vendor, it’s so prolific the owner has been sharing the fruit around the neighbourhood.

Or you could pop down the road to the Sunday growers’ market at South Fremantle Senior High School, pick up a few fresh vegies and then invite everyone round for a Thai green salad.


Pleasant surprises

This contemporary home delivers pleasant surprises around every corner.

Pass the front limestone wall and you’ll find a hidden courtyard, complete with a fish pond. Shut the front door and the sound of falling water remains, a calming connection to the outside world.

Although you could be mistaken for thinking the sun had followed you in as well.

Honeyed bamboo flooring flows from the hall into the open plan living and dining area and casts the high ceilings and neutral paint with a warm glow.


While not overly large, the kitchen has plenty of space for the breakfast bar, proper freestanding chefs oven and the standard brawny fridge everyone seems to need these days.

A neat little pantry and preparation area leads to a good sized laundry that can be hidden away with an inbuilt, sliding door.

Those with a need for extra storage will love the pull down ladder to access the ceiling space above the double garage.

A simple staircase, encased in that lovely bamboo, leads to three generous bedrooms, each one with a view. But if the long, white shuttered window of the main bedroom isn’t enough then there’s always the open air balcony shared with the second bedroom.


There’s plenty to appreciate from the master ensuite, built in robes and tastefully decorated bathrooms but I find myself eager to get back downstairs and into the back courtyard.

Extended through glass sliding doors from the main dining area it’s close enough to the kitchen for entertaining. And the final surprise, a view of Beaconsfield ridge, where the locals like to meander of a summers evening.

Maybe you could invite them in? Share a lime or two?
