12 Fortescue Street, EAST FREMANTLE WA 6158
SOLD FIRST WEEKEND
This gracious character home stands proudly in the heart of East Fremantle’s Woodside precinct, sought after for its elegant heritage homes on sizeable land parcels.
Sitting on a 1012sqm block, traditional features are showcased immediately with a captivating heritage facade. A welcoming wide front porch, unique curved entry and beautiful stained-glass make a wonderful first impression. Sweep through the home’s interior with an exquisite selection of heritage features on display including leadlight windows, high decorative ceilings and jarrah floors. Loved by the current owners for over 28 years, a thoughtfully designed rear extension, by renowned local architect Gerard McCann, seamlessly unites the old with the new and provides for easy, modern family living.
A wonderful central kitchen is the true heart of the home with its long island bench creating a natural meeting point where family and friends gather. The dining and living areas open to the elevated rear verandah. Designed for year-round entertaining, this protected alfresco deck overlooks the spacious backyard with sparkling pool and lush green lawns surrounded by mature landscaped gardens. You can imagine years of gatherings in this wonderful space while watching the kids play in the pool and yard. A timber gazebo tucked away at the end of the garden, makes a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the birds chirping in the evening with a glass of wine, or breakfast on a summer’s morning in the shade.
The master bedroom, situated at the front offering privacy from the minor bedrooms, features a spacious ensuite, built in robes and a pretty front window seat overlooking the garden. The children’s wing at the rear includes two queen size bedrooms, both with built in robes and a large family bathroom with bath.
The front sitting room is a vast space with a feature fireplace and window seat. A perfect grown ups retreat away from the main living areas, or perhaps the ideal kids hangout that can be closed off from the rest of the home. A separate study could easily double as a fourth bedroom.
This revived heritage residence in a highly sought after family oriented community, is the quintessential family home that embraces the best of both worlds – all the grandeur and architectural elements of a bygone era coupled with the convenience and comforts of modern day family living.
