THERE’S always something you have to compromise on a new home – usually great character but not enough space, or big enough but no character.
Well this Fremantle house has everything covered, boasting six bedrooms and oodles of vintage charm.
Originally two dwellings, it has been restored and extended into a single heritage brick-and-iron abode, featuring gorgeous turn of the century architecture.
It’s got all the heritage bells and whistles including decorative fireplaces, wide red gum floors and high ceilings.
Owned by the same family for more than 30 years, you can tell the love and care that’s gone into the reonvations to make it ready for 21st century life.
There’s an understatement to the design and neutral colour tones, ensuring nothing is too in your face or meretricious.
The main living area has plenty of space for a lounge setting and large dining table, with views of the back garden through the glass doors.
With vines winding around a wooden pergola, the sheltered alfresco is a stylish spot to sit with a coffee or a glass of vino after a hard day in the office.
Overlooking a small patch of lawn, garden beds and trees, it’s a relaxing little idyll.
The multiple living areas have an airy, bright feel thanks to the large glass doors leading to the garden.
The Chook’s favourtie spot is the lounge with the vintage fireplace in the corner.
We imagine this could be a good retreat for dad to watch his own TV shows or play the guitar, while the kids overdose on garish, over-loud cartoons next door.
You’re spoiled for choice with up to six bedrooms, but the main features lovely french doors with garden vistas.
Both bathrooms are equally stylish in keeping with the rest of the home. The property includes a parents’ retreat, open-plan kitchen, skylights and a seperate laundry.
Situated on a 585sqm block on Knutsford Street in the Monument Hill Precinct, you are within walking distance of Fremantle, the Fremantle Arts Centre, George Street and the river.
It’s also in the coveted East Fremantle Primary School and John Curtin College of the Arts catchments.
This is a spacious family home with loads of character in a great locale.
