Modern classic

THIS East Fremantle home is a bit of a stylish Tardis.

It cuts a bold figure on Sewell Street with its stark architectural lines, darkish facade and flat roof.

The four large windows on the front are almost like eyes peering out at the leafy trees on the pavement.

I say Tardis, as it looks quite compact, but once inside it’s a spacious four bedroom two bathroom abode with plenty of room and style.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is particularly impressive with the exposed wooden beam on the ceiling punctuating the pristine white colour scheme.

The living room has louvres allowing the breeze to flow through from front to back, keeping it very airy and pleasant in the summer.

The Chook loves the polished concrete floor, which will be nice and cool and also very practical for cleaning and maintaining (we’ve all spilt a glass of wine or two in our time). But traditionalists don’t despair, the house also has living areas with warm polished jarrah floorboards, giving you a little touch of yesteryear as well.

It will be a cinch preparing meals in the kitchen with tons of benchtop space, a large island and a freestanding 900mm oven.

There’s a nice blend of subway tiles, natural wood and white stone, creating an interesting look with different textures and colours.

It’s a stylish and very practical space to cook up a storm.

A delightful feature is the stairs which lead up to the terraced alfresco on top of the garage.

From here you have gorgeous views of the treetops stretching for miles around and at sunset, gorgeous tangerine and orange skies.

This alfresco has plenty of space for a large dining table and BBQ with a stylish black railing completing the pretty picture.

There’s also a nice porch out the front and a decent strip of lawn at the rear, giving you a choice of outdoor areas.

In a clever little touch, the original garage has been converted into an activity/TV room with added storage. I imagine this space would be a favourite with the kids as they get older (a little den) or it would make a great man cave for dad.

There’s also a seperate home office at the rear, which could be a fourth bedroom if needed.

The home includes a separate laundry, remote control split system air conditioning, great storage, a gated single car bay and two beautifully appointed bathrooms.

Situated on Sewell Street, you are literally around the corner from all the pubs, cafes and restaurants on George Street and a short walk from the Tradewinds Hotel for sunset drinks. Or head further afield into Fremantle with the Arts Centre and Leisure Centre just down the road.

It’s a great spot as you are super close to Fremantle, but living in a quiet, picturesque enclave of East Fremantle with lots on your doorstep.

The home is also in the catchment for East Fremantle Primary School and John Curtin College.

This East Fremantle abode has a lot of contemporary flair and will appeal to buyers who want a mix of old and new in a top suburb.
