BUILT around 1903 this cute semi-detached limestone home has lots of Freo character and panache.
The front verandah, overlooking tree-lined Holland Street, is a great spot to watch the world go wandering by.
Inside you’ll find lots of gorgeous heritage features including ceiling roses, decorative arches, old fireplaces and aged jarrah floors.
There are early-1900s decorative ceilings and also some from the ‘40s and ‘50s. Changes to the house made over the decades aren’t jarring and culminate in a throughly modern rear extension.
The Italian influence of the 1930s is evident in the huge central kitchen, which has a terrazzo tiled floor spread out like a magic carpet.
The stained glass in the front door was designed by the owners to echo the terrazzo’s complex pattern.
Two of the home’s three bedrooms, one with ensuite, have views of the quiet, leafy street.
The third bedroom is in the rear extension, along with a bathroom and laundry.
The kitchen’s country sass is enhanced by a mix of shabby-chic timber cabinetry, some of which can be included in the sale.
The dining area is on the same level as the kitchen.
Jarrah steps lead down to a spacious family room, where floor-to-ceiling window offer views of the tranquil garden and paved alfresco. For larger gatherings there’s a covered barbecue area at the rear of the garden.
Fruiting avocado and large gum trees ensure this a tranquil and relaxing space, protected by high fences.
