THIS light and airy Hilton home was built from the wood of an old ship moored at Fremantle Harbour, according to the neighbours.
The original cottage section of the home, built in 1930, has been upgraded with all the modern comforts while retaining its heritage charm.
Up a windy garden path, the front porch is welcoming and has enough room for chairs and a coffee table.
The front hallway is fresh and inviting, with white painted weatherboard walls, pine and jarrah floorboards, and high ceilings.
In the main bedroom there is a decorative fireplace and a large walk-in robe with windows and enough room for a desk and chairs.
You will always be cool, with an air-conditioner as well.
The second bedroom lets in a lot of light, with doors opening out to the side of the house. There is a ceiling fan for those hot summer months.
The third bedroom has three beautiful pressed tin walls.
The spacious lounge is a comfortable area in the middle of the house, with a smaller adjoining room that could be used as a reading nook.
The kitchen has ornate white wooden drawers, a big window overlooking the back garden and attractive tiles on the walls.
Adjoining the kitchen is a small dining area with contrasting light and dark wood throughout.
There are two bathrooms: one has a bathtub and weatherboard feature wall. The other is a bathroom/laundry with funky tiles.
Out in the garden there are window boxes, fragrant lavender bushes, lawn and plenty of space for outdoor seating.
There are also lemon, mandarin, fig and grapefruit trees, as well as a variety of herbs.
There is plenty of room on this 809sqm block, and at the back is a fully-insulated studio that could be used for guest accommodation.
Situated on Carrington Street, this four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is close to loads of parks, cafes and shops.
