Have you always dreamed of being number one?
Well the Chook can’t promise you a hit single or gold medal, but you will be living at number 1 Russell Street if you buy this historic four bedroom two bathroom home.
Situated on the corner of Marine Terrace in Fremantle, this 1922 home is just down the hill from South Terrace and the Wray Avenue precinct, and the Fremantle CBD and South Beach are only a short walk away.
The home features all the heritage bells and whistles and a modern upgrade that meets the needs of the 21st century family.
One of the many highlights is the open plan dining/living/kitchen area which is centered around a gorgeous period fireplace.
Whipping up meals will be a cinch in the massive kitchen which has tons of cupboards space and sleek stainless steel appliances.
The Chook loves the pale blue splashback – it’s a subtle touch that makes it standout from countless other bland white-on-white kitchens.
The two main bedrooms feel spacious and airy with the high ceilings and large windows ensuring plenty of natural light.
There’s also a huge dressing room with masses of space for all your clothes and shoes.
The third bedroom is a bit smaller and could alternatively be used as study.
This stylish home has a surprise up its sleeve – a spacious air-conditioned studio with bathroom, laundry and its own access at the rear of the property.
It could be a fourth bedroom or reserved for guests and family coming to stay, but given the tight rental market you could easily lease it out and have a great source of passive income.
There’s a lovely big wrap-around verandah at the front of the home, where the owners no doubt sip wine while admiring their manicured garden. Or head to the tiered back garden, which is fringed with lovely shrubs, plants and foliage.
The rear garden feels a bit under-utilised and the Herald would be putting in a pizza oven and some tables and chairs for an alfresco.
Situated on a 344sqm green-title block, the home is zoned mixed-use R35 – so plenty of scope for making it multi-purpose – and there’s a carport down the back.
It’s perfectly positioned on the fringe of Fremantle and the doorstep of South Freo.
A lovely character home with the added bonus of a studio.
