FANCY tickling the ivories?
Well, this Fremantle home has a baby grand piano in the lounge.
It’s a stylish touch in a stylish house that has loads of federation charm and history.
Held in the same family for the past 32 years, it’s been extended to six bedrooms and two bathrooms.
There’s actually two dwellings on one lot – the original building and a two-level studio at the rear.
The home’s facade is pleasing on the eye with a cute bullnose verandah, limestone brickwork and a white picket fence.
Inside you are greeted by a narrow period hallway and elegant architraves.
The rooms are stylish and full of historic features including sash windows, ceiling medallions and wide jarrah floors, reflecting the home’s provenance.
Dotted throughout are some lovely vintage fireplaces, which become elegant focal points.
The main home has 4-5 bedrooms and includes a modern extension with a large country-style kitchen with wooden benchtops and a rustic tiled floor.
It’s nice and bright in the kitchen, thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the patio and let in plenty of natural light. Out the back is a lush garden that feels inviting and well maintained, with the two-level studio hidden amongst some leafy branches.
The studio has a living area, kitchen and bathroom/laundry on the ground level, and two bedrooms upstairs.
It’s also got its own porch and pergola, so you can sit outside with a pot of tea and enjoy the verdure.
‘Studio’ doesn’t really do it justice as it has quality fixtures and fittings and a lovely wooden-style floor that would be the envy of many home owners.
There’s even a private balcony on the upper level, where you can sip some wine and gaze down at the garden in full bloom.
The studio is the perfect spot for a home business or could be used for family/guest accomodation or as a rental.
The home includes split system air con, skylights and a seperate laundry.
Situated on a 384sqm lot on Grey Street, this home is on Freo’s doorstep and within walking distance of the beach, Esplanade Park and the Cappuccino Strip.
There’s loads of possibilities with these two dwellings and it’s in a great spot close to the heart of Freo.
Well worth a look.
