I DIDN’T know what to think when the owners of this Marmion Street home insisted I check out the rear of the property first.
But after I went around back and discovered a labyrinth of cellar-room storage, the penny dropped.
A bit storage-challenged myself, I was smitten with all that space.
If that wasn’t enough there’s a massive garage–which could be a home gym or man cave–beside the spacious carport.
The potential of this home was quickly spotted by the owner who turned the 1960s dwelling, originally built for a Portuguese family, into a sleek and spacious modern abode.
Standing in the delightful front garden, I barely noticed busy Marmion St because of the lush planting of trees and shrubs.
I could see why the vendors love to wind down after work with a libation or two on the sprawling verandah.
Inside, the rooms have been knocked into a streamlined kitchen/dining/lounge with French doors opening onto the verandah.
During winter the gas-powered fire in the generous lounge is cranked-up and inter-connecting french doors close to conserve heat.
Light floods through the open plan thanks to a heap of almost floor-to-ceiling windows and doors.
Somewhat of a gastronome the owner wanted a chef-worthy kitchen, and the huge space is practical and slick with a heap of storage.
White stone benchtops and elegant tiles make cleaning the floor a breeze.
Abutting the kitchen is a huge rumpus room that could be converted into a games or theatre room, or a fourth bedroom.
Privacy screens and Crim-safe on doors and windows make this gorgeous home very secure.
East Fremantle Primary school and John Curtin College of the Arts are less than five minutes walk away.
The vibrant George Street cafe strip isn’t much further and it’s a short journey into Fremantle.
The home is being sold under “open negotiation”; a type of online auction relatively new to WA.
