FROM it’s prominent position in South Fremantle, this former grocery store served locals for more than 50 years.
Built in 1902 on the corner of Scott Street and South Terrace, the house has had many uses, including a stint as an art gallery, and an antique shop.
The recent addition of an amusing mural, with a trio of emus, makes it instantly recognisable as Terra Rosa, a land management service working with indigenous groups and industry.
The property is being marketed as a four-bedroom/two-bathroom home, but there’s endless possibilities for the new owner, from a vast and sprawling home, to a series of offices, or a commercial premises.
The original shop is a huge office, backed by a generous kitchen, which has its own door that shoppers would have once used.
Then there’s the house front door, with its lovely stained glass surround.
This section of the building reflects it’s Victorian Georgian architecture and still has its heritage bells and whistles including lovely jarrah floors, fire places and ceiling roses.
New owners could set up an office or shop on one side, and live in the other.
But then there’s a second level featuring a huge bedroom, with a walk-in-robe and en suite, and balcony with ocean views
There’s also a study and gym, so the ground level could be all commercial with living space above.
A huge mezzanine with stairs into the original shop can be accessed from here.
For good measure, or perhaps for short-term accommodation, there’s a separate office across from the alfresco courtyard and water feature.
Features include air conditioning, solar panels, an upgraded kitchen and bathroom, as well as a relaxing alfresco area and secure garage.
Flexibility is the mantra of this expansive property, which is close to South Beach, a heap of cafes and shops, and is on the CAT bus route.
