WE all love a house with a good talking point.
This cottage was built in 1897 by convicts, so you can imagine the dinner party conversations about that one.
Situated on Parry Street in the heart of Fremantle, this beautiful house has been lovingly restored, retaining its original ceiling roses, fireplace and re-weighted double hung windows.
Where possible the original floor has been polished and sealed, blending seamlessly into the newer oak floorboards.
But don’t worry, this three bedroom abode is fit for 21st century living and has been renovated with a brand new kitchen and bathroom.
The kitchen is a beauty with tasteful white cupboards, a patterned splashback and marble-style benchtops.
There’s room for a small table, which suits the cottage feel while looking decidedly modern.
I love the bathroom in this cottage; it’s got a huge shower with light grey tiles and there’s some stylish cupboards.
The lounge has a gorgeous fireplace and the crisp colour scheme contrasts nicely with the darker floorboards. It’s a lovely room and is the centrepiece of the house.
Out front you’ve got that classic cottage look with Roman-style columns supporting the verandah, and windows either side of the door creating a cute symmetrical “face”.
The house has two toilets, has been completely rewired, and includes ducted reverse cycle air con.
Parking in Freo can be a bit of a nightmare, so you’ll be relieved to know there are two large undercover car bays at the rear of the home.
Situated on Parry Street, you are a two-minute walk from all the cafes and restaurant on the Cappuccino Strip and Fremantle CBD.
This home is a historic gem.
