THE owner of this South Fremantle home did extensive renovations, but ended up working overseas and never got to enjoy them.
He did come back on a couple of fleetings visits, but the oven and dishwasher have never been used.
The house is situated on Wardie Street – part of the Mills and Ware Biscuit factory redevelopment – and has the look of a movie set with cute two-storey houses, pleasant green verges and soaring jacaranda trees.
It’s so quiet and community-friendly you’ll see kids riding their bikes on the street or playing in the biscuit factory park across the road.
Modern stained glass windows create a pleasant glow in the small vestibule.
As you step inside you’ll discover a spacious open-living area with a beech floating timber floor and crisp white walls.
The galley-style kitchen has sparkling white cabinetry, a sweep of grey stone benchtops and a large double pantry.
The alfresco has a beach feel with a peaked, alsynite roof and limestone paving, and the high walls ensure total privacy.
A black wrought-iron balustrade contrasts nicely with the pine timber stairs that lead to the two bedrooms on the second level.
The larger street-facing bedroom has a lovely north-facing reading nook, and a spacious bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower.
The third bedroom and second bathroom are in a cedar-clad studio with an alfresco courtyard, at the rear of the property.
There’s a single garage accessed from a rear laneway and parking for a second car, plus room for a third off Wardie Street.
This home offers a great South Fremantle lifestyle and is move-in ready.
There’s plenty of cafes nearby and South Beach and the Fremantle CBD are within walking distance, or you could jump on the CAT bus at the bottom of the road.
