IF YOU’RE after a brick-and-iron home with all the heritage bells and whistles, this could be the one.
Situated at the bottom of a quiet cul-de-sac in South Fremantle, this home is like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting or if you have darker tastes the opening scene of Blue Velvet.
Behind a white picket fence is a manicured lawn and a lovely two bedroom one bathroom home.
It’s got that chocolate box cottage-look, and it would be a joy pulling up to the front gate every night.
It gets even better inside with a ton of period features including a lovely original fireplace, polished jarrah floorboards, high ceilings and ornate cornicing.
The period fireplace in the lounge is particularly nice with a lovely cast-iron basket flanked by pretty blue tiles with a flowing motif.
The white walls and ceilings really pop against the rich hue of the floorboards and it feels like it would be nice and cool in summer when the high temps hit.
The kitchen is often a cramped afterthought in period homes, but this one is big and has been nicely renovated with the cupboards and drawers blending in with the neutral decor.
There’s a seperate dining room, so you can host large parties without being huddled together in the kitchen.
The bathroom is another highlight – white subway tiles, clawfoot bath and a neat vanity create a lovely space to relax after a hard day at work.
Both bedrooms are spacious with the high ceilings really enhancing the sense of space.
There’s a choice of two outdoor areas – you can sit on the massive verandah at the front, like an extra from The Waltons, or go to the back garden and enjoy the lovely sheltered alfresco, which overlooks a leafy back garden with brick paving and a neat Colorbond fence.
Situated on a 455sqm lot on Thomas Street, you are just a few streets back from South Beach and perfectly positioned for a refreshing dip come summer.
Afterwards, you can walk to all the cafes, restaurants and bars on South Terrace and enjoy all the delights South Fremantle has to offer.
The home includes a long driveway with space for two cars.
This is a gorgeous home in South Freo with the beach at your fingertips.
