THIS Beaconsfield home has a modern extension with jaw-dropping ocean views.
They’re constantly changing and watching the rain sweeping in from the ocean during winter is spellbinding, the owners say.
From the street the home looks like a typical early 1900s Fremantle cottage, but the property is a whopping 900sqm and there’s plenty of surprises inside.
Three bedrooms and a modern bathroom flank the long hallway, where jarrah and aged pine floors segue into blackbutt.
The hallway leads to two areas which make up the modern wing.
One is the huge main bedroom, which has a walk-in-robe and en suite with deep bath and free-standing shower.
The other area is a massive open-plan, where huge floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of the massive native garden and the Indian Ocean.
Bifold doors in the living area provide access to a spacious timber deck.
“It’s amazing for parties and for lazy lunches,” the owners say.
The kitchen is a sleek, galley-style space with masses of white hard-wearing Corian benchtops and Smeg appliances.
Supported by massive steel girders, the living and bedroom “compartments” are high off the ground and there’s space underneath for storage, parking and a pleasant al fresco.
The delightful reticulated garden has an old fig tree, grapevines, and lemon and grapefruit trees.
Winding paths lead to secret corners, veggie patches and a trickling water feature.
Located on Edmund Street on the Beaconsfield ridge, this home is close to school, shops and South Beach.
