CAN’T decide if you want a classic Federation-era home or a modern abode?
Then just buy this Wray Avenue property – it’s got both!
The block includes a circa 1892 stone cottage on one side of the driveway and a modern two-storey house on the other.
In total there’s five bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the homes have been cleverly configured so you can have them connected or seperate – opening loads of possibilities to rent one out and live in the other or have your extended family use one.
The possibilities are endless and make this home a bit of a stylish Swiss army knife.
Flexibility aside, what’s the actual home like?
Well, the limestone cottage has a gorgeous chocolate box facade and those high standards continue inside with a treasure trove of beautiful period features including rich jarrah floorboards.
The Chook has seen a lot of fireplaces over the years but this home has some of the best yet. There’s a gorgeous wooden mantel and cast iron basket in one of the bedrooms, but the period fireplace in the lounge is something else.
A beautiful stone hearth is surrounded by a tall and ornate wooden mantel.
It’s a bit like something you would see framing Cersei Lannister as she plots her revenge in a dramatic scene from Game of Thrones. But this house isn’t some fusty history piece and is immaculate with all the mod cons including a stunning kitchen and bathroom.
When the wife has had enough of you and is binge watching Farmer wants a bachelorette wants a lobotomy wants an OnlyFans page, head over to the modern two bedroom one bathroom home next door.
Extensive use of glass and floor-to-ceiling windows ensure this property is flooded with natural light and is bright and airy.
The Herald really likes the upstairs living area where you can enjoy views of the treetops and the endless blue skies, punctuated by the vintage chimney stacks next door.
The kitchen is on the first floor, along with bedroom four, which has access to a long wrap-around balcony.
On the ground floor is another bedroom with built-in robes, and a bathroom/laundry, store room and double garage.
Parking won’t be a problem with an additional two parking spaces out the front in a stylish paved courtyard.
Although the facades are very different, the inside of this modern abode is elegant and classy, so there isn’t a big stylistic jump between the properties.
There is excellent storage throughout, and a series of skylights bathe the home in natural light.
Situated on a 540sqm block, you are close to a wide range of cafes and shops on the Wray Avenue strip and it’s only a short walk into Fremantle and a quick cycle to South Beach.
This is a sensational double property that will turn heads.
