The Herald loves a home with a design flourish here and there…
This Beaconsfield number doesn’t disappoint with a steeply pitched gable roof peeking over the garden wall.
With windows covering the entire width and height of the mezzanine, it’s a bold architectural statement that resembles a giant floating tent or the tip of some homemade rocket bound for space.
If you’re after character, you’ll love this free-standing brick-and-iron studio home.
With two bedrooms and one bathroom it’s ideal for a couple or small family, and is conveniently positioned on the South Fremantle border.
On the ground floor is the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area which has plenty of natural light and wooden floors.
The galley-style kitchen has plenty of cupboard and bench space, but you’ll probably want to update it further down the line as the benchtops are a bit dated.
The same goes for the bathroom which is neat and functional but has the same old-school decor.
There’s a nice bedroom with built-in robes on the ground floor and a larger bedroom/studio on the mezzanine.
A good configuration if you have guests coming to stay or an older child.
The bedroom on the ground floor is semi-ensuite and there’s also a laundry down here.
When you feel like a coffee or an evening libation, head out to the cute, rear courtyard, which has raised garden beds and a high fence for privacy.
The home has been freshly painted, has new air conditioning and includes a single carport and shed.
It’s also got good solar passive credentials, according to the realtor.
Situated on a 158sqm block on Martha Street, you are close to all the bars, restaurants, cafes and shops in South Fremantle.
This is a cute studio home and I could see a painter or artisan couple living here.
Home open tomorrow (Saturday February 5) 1.15pm-1.45pm
