Colour my world

A SOLID, high fence on Price Street hides a Fremantle gem.

Behind is a delightful 1800s workers cottage that is a stone’s throw away from the CBD.

This two-bedroom home is brimming with heritage features, including the federation-tiled verandah, where you can enjoy the north-facing courtyard and the colourful array of flowers and sweet- smelling roses.

The owners’ quirky use of colour adds to the charm as you step inside to find an egg-yellow ceiling soaring high above rich jarrah floors and pale lemon walls in the long hallway.

White walls contrast with a cerise-pink ceiling in the front bedroom, where a wall of jarrah bookshelves suggest it’s used as a library/study.

The riot of colour continues into the central lounge, with its cerise feature wall, jarrah floors and gas-powered open fire.

With its spearmint green-and-white theme, the spacious kitchen conjured memories of my favourite milkshake as a kid.

The soft green shade has been used on many of the timber-fronted cupboards, and also on the island bench and integrated fridge.

Oatmeal-coloured benchtops and a lovely lead-light window over the ceramic sink is picked out in green and red glass.

A raw brick wall and iron racks to hang pots and pans gives the kitchen a country feel.

There’s plenty of privacy in the back garden with high brick walls sheltering the al fresco.

A riot of colour in the raised garden beds and a cute shed with a pillar-box red door will make you want to linger.

There’s a small cafe right across the road and loads more within walking distance on South Terrace.

South and Bathers Beaches are a 15-minute walk away, and even closer by bike along the coastal path.

This gorgeous cottage is perfect for someone looking for an inner-city lifestyle – whether starting-out or downsizing.
