THIS 1927 Fremantle home is full of surprises–including a “secret” room tucked away in the open plan.
Gorgeous jarrah is used on the dado walls, the floors and in lovely catchment windows in the spacious lounge room.
The lovely reddish wood is also found in the delightful, original built-in-robes, the linen press and in a gorgeous, slender wall-mounted cupboard in the lounge.
Despite being on High Street, the noise from traffic was muted in the formal lounge, and judging by the well-used open fire it’s a favourite spot on a cold evening.
Traffic was barley noticeable in the rear extension open-plan, which has a slanted, beamed ceiling.
The well-appointed kitchen is spacious and functional and has a generous walk-in-pantry, but is a bit dated and the new owners will probably give it a face-lift.
French doors lead to a timber-roofed deck that overlooks the old-fashioned roses and trees in the expansive garden.
It’s easy to miss the raw-brick stairs off the open plan, which lead to a small study and “secret” ensuite bedroom with doors opening onto the garden.
Sitting on 757sqm, this three-bedroom property is sub-divisible (subject to council approval), but it would be a shame to destroy the wild garden so obviously enjoyed by the owner.
This is a great family home with plenty of indoor and outdoor space.
John Curtin College of the Arts and East Fremantle Primary School are within walking distance, and there’s no shortage of parks nearby.
Potential buyers can check out Main Roads’ plans to upgrade High Street, which include a slip road for homes and a noise protection barrier.
