WITH resource prices set to keep rising this year, it could be the perfect time to buy a house on Gold Street.
This delightful terrace is part of a group of three built around 1904 in South Fremantle.
It’s been fully restored and has all the heritage bells and whistles including tuckpointing, timber floors and vintage fireplaces.
As you walk around this two bedroom one bathroom home, you can almost feel the history seeping out of the walls.
The hallway has that classic look with a tasteful architrave and a large ceiling medallion making an elegant entry statement.
Everything has been sympathetically restored with the rich warm tones in the floorboards accentuated by a nice buff and polish. The owners clearly have good taste and matched gold-framed mirrors with the heritage fireplaces in the lounge and bedrooms, creating a vintage theme. Making dinner will be a bit of fun in the cute kitchen, which has a touch of kitsch with red tiles and stools, and a chequered splashback.
The raw brick enhances the retro feel and the picture is complete with a wooden spice rack in the corner.
After dinner head out to the sheltered alfresco, which has a seaside feel courtesy of a distressed white timer roof and blue-and-white furniture.
There’s a second kitchen here with a washing machine, sink, cupboards and fridge.
It’s a clever use of space and means you have an extra indoor-outdoor room in this north-facing spot.
The bathroom is another kitcsh number with large black-and-white chequered floor tiles complementing the subway tiles on the walls. It’s cute and stylish with a nice glass-framed shower.
Situated in a sought-after spot “between the terraces” in South Freo, this home is close to South Beach, Fishing Boat Harbour and the cycleway.
You really would have an excellent lifestyle here, flitting between the cafes and boutiques on South Terrace and the refreshing Indian Ocean
There is on-street parking for one car and with a right of way at the rear, the option for small car access. If you want to live the classic South Freo lifestyle in a classic South Freo home, this is the one for you.
