IT’S rare to find a character home with loads of space and a pool in Fremantle’s heritage precinct.
‘Character’ usually means you have to sacrifice on space or 21st century features, but this three bedroom three bathroom home deftly combines both.
If you like limestone, you’re going to love this house.
It’s everywhere from the first- floor balcony to the entrance hallway and lush back garden; an elegant ode to yesteryear.
An unexpected bonus is the sense of space in this property, which feels decidedly airy and bright.
It’s especially evident in the open plan dining/living/kitchen area which has towering ceilings and sliding glass doors leading to the garden.
The kitchen is massive with a huge breakfast bar and chic stainless steel appliances.
From the spacious lounge you can access the first floor balcony, which makes the most of the house’s elevated position on the dress-circle above Freo Prison.
Enjoy views of the treetops stretching down to the ‘nodding’ cranes at Fremantle port.
The back garden is redolent of a Mediterranean villa with a kidney-shaped pool framed by limestone walls, trees and an alfresco setting.
With many of us working from home these days, the fully-fitted home office is a cracker and is situated close to the western deck with ocean vistas.
The main ensuite bedroom is on the first floor and includes a balcony, while the remaining two bedrooms are on the ground floor and are also ensuite, which is quite rare.
The home includes a powder room, laundry, study and double garage.
With so many living areas, this property is versatile and can be configured to suit a family with different ages of kids, or to accomodate people coming to stay.
Situated on a 326sqm block on Fothergill Street, you are up the hill from all the cafes and restaurants in the Fremantle CBD, and Stevens Reserve and Fremantle Cricket Club are just over the road.
This is a lovely property which is deceptively big with lots of living space.
