Real charmer

THE Chook loves a bit of individuality and this South Fremantle home has it in spades.

There’s the aubergine and buttermilk paint on the facade, the vibrant red tiles in the bathroom and the decorative mosaic in the back garden to name a few.

Don’t worry this three bedroom two bathroom abode isn’t too quirky, it just has that classic South Freo flair.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area has gorgeous wooden floorboards and a super high ceiling, thanks to the mezzanine design.

It means the ground floor is bright, airy and nice and cool with summer starting to bite.

The spacious lounge is tucked behind a small wall, giving you a little bit of privacy from all the clattering and banging in the kitchen.

The downstairs includes a large seperate laundry, where that buttermilk paint comes out to play again, giving this utilitarian space a little flourish.

The Herald really likes the main bedroom – it’s got some lovely vintage-style windows, walk-in robes, ceiling fan and a natural grain finish on the floor.

In the mezzanine there’s a study/office, giving you space and freedom to work from home.

The rear north-facing courtyard is a South Fremantle classic with its quirky mix of bright tiles, stylish pavers, limestone walls and splashes of bright red paint.

It’s completely covered by a high arched patio roof, making this a glorious all-year round spot with plenty of room for a BBQ and pizza oven.

There’s another alfresco at the side of the house with a sail shade providing protection from the sun and limestone walls creating a classy Mediterranean feel.  

The home includes an activity room (fourth bedroom), seperate toilet, solar panels, sitting room and timber architraves and doors.

Situated on a 257sqm block on Jenkin Street, just up from South Beach, you’ll be able to toddle down for daily swims and not worry about parking.

Then stroll to South Terrace and enjoy all the cafes, small bars and restaurants.

This is a gorgeous South Freo home with tons of character in a great locale.
