It’s the people and the places that make a community what it is and this authentic limestone and iron cottage sits in a sought-after heritage precinct forming an integral part of East Fremantle’s historic Plympton ward.
Everything you need is on your doorstep in this lifestyle hub. You will love meandering just a few metres to George Street to the many award winning bars, restaurants, gift and clothing stores, whilst being just moments from the river and the many lifestyle features this fabulous suburb offers.
This picturesque Federation terrace home is a beautiful reminder of times gone by. The architectural integrity is intact with traditional limestone and classic tuck pointed brickwork, decorative gables with its proud finial and a bullnose verandah all make this a very inviting home. Sitting behind a classic white picket fence is an elevated front porch where you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee. Behind the front door, the interiors overflow with original character and charm from the long hallway with its wide Baltic pine floorboards to the soaring high ceilings.
Two large bedrooms are located off the hallway with the front one having a fireplace and sash windows overlooking the veranda. The central living room is a delightfully welcoming space with a cosy fireplace.
Solid jarrah stairs take you down a couple of steps to the rear extension of the home with a spacious kitchen and huge dining room with soaring double height ceilings. This generous family area is a welcoming communal space and features exposed brick walls and high raked ceilings giving the property a real Freo warehouse feel. It is here, however, the current owners plans halted before the upstairs master bedroom with ensuite was complete. The brand new bathroom is there, but plans were paused before the bedroom and covered alfresco could be finished (plans available to view on site).
Throw open the French doors and enjoy dining on the timber deck. There’s nothing but the sound of birds in this leafy and sun-filled back garden, with lush greenery and citrus trees. At the rear of the garden sits a solid timber shed that could easily be converted to a studio.
This gorgeous cottage has been loved and lived in for over a century and offers classic turn-of-the-century architecture just metres from cosmopolitan George Street. Will you be next to begin creating your own piece of history in this much loved location?
