LIVING in a magnificent home on a 1000sqm block in East Fremantle is probably the dream for a lot of folk.
This Dalgety Street abode is an opportunity to live that dream in a competitive covid-19 real estate market.
Built in the 1920s, this late-period federation home has loads of beautiful heritage features, but has been adapted for the needs of the modern family with an amazing indoor-outdoor living area.
As you walk around, you’ll be in awe at the wide verandahs, bay windows, jarrah floors and arched hallways.
You get a real sense of history and it feels like one of those special homes that will impress visiting guests.
Things get really interesting at the rear, where the home has been opened-up with a massive outdoor room for all-year-round entertaining.
A spacious kitchen dovetails into a massive decked alfresco, which has a state-of-the-art retractable roof and gleaming stainless-steel appliances, including a barbecue and fridge.
It’s a fantastic entertaining area and the retractable roof, with rain sensor and adjustable louvre slats, is a luxurious and very convenient touch. To the side of the alfresco is a patio with more outdoor furniture and extra room for extended family and guests.
The alfresco overlooks a huge garden with fruiting trees and a large swathe of lawn for kids and small pets to play on.
There’s loads of room for a pool, and a majestic peppermint tree, looming over the grass, will provide plenty of shade in the summer.
If you’re into entertaining and having people around for dinner parties and functions, this is an amazing indoor-outdoor area.
In the rear corner of the garden is a north-facing studio with a bathroom, laundry and toilet.
It’s fitted out better than some units and could be used for accomodation or as an office, as many of us will be working from home after the pandemic.
I’m always jealous when I see a house with a games room (I’ve always wanted a pool table) and the 27sqm one beside the studio is perfect for groups of kids.
The three bedrooms and two bathrooms are finished to an extremely high standard, with the family bathroom including a frameless glass shower and long white vanity.
Out of all the living areas, the lounge is especially impressive, with a gorgeous fireplace with a blue tiled hearth, couched in lovely warm wood.
The house includes air conditioning, concertina doors and windows, and a three-car garage.
Situated on a fantastic East Fremantle street, this is a special house, which feels like it has one foot in the past and one in the future.
