12 Corkhill Street, NORTH FREMANTLE WA 6159
Contemporary Design In Prestigious Riverside Location
Located in the heart of North Fremantle’s premier riverside precinct, this striking contemporary residence filled with light and beautiful spaces, is perfectly suited to professionals, couples and families alike, offering a luxurious, low maintenance riverside lifestyle.
The traditional weatherboard cottage that is so much a part of North Fremantle’s texture, still presents its classic face to the street here, but inside, is a contemporary transformation that is rarely achieved. Beyond the original rooms, the 21st century addition is extraordinary and cleverly designed around the central courtyard and sparkling resort style pool.
The traditional bullnose verandah leads into the central hallway where the original bedrooms feature high ceilings, sash windows, built-in wardrobes and crisp white shutters. A formal sitting room with its wall of glass and bi-fold windows overlooks the pool and courtyard and makes a perfect TV room, music room or home office.
Stunning polished concrete flooring sets a neutral tone throughout the home, blending beautifully with the rich jarrah flooring and marking the spot where new meets old. A walkway with a wall of glass flooding the home in light, leads to the kitchen, dining and living area.
The entire home has been cleverly designed around this north facing central courtyard and pool. But this is not just any pool! Dug into the foundation and accessed via a trap door in the sitting room, is an amazing underground bar, where guests can swim up, take a seat and order a drink. Just imagine entertaining friends and family here!!
The central U shaped kitchen is highly functional with plenty of bench and storage space nestled between the dining and living areas and opening to the outdoors allowing for easy interaction with family and friends while cooking.
Upstairs is a magical parents’ retreat complete with generous bedroom, a huge living area overlooking the courtyard with a beautifully appointed ensuite and separate walk in robe. A wall of glass bi-fold doors open to the balcony where the breezes flow through and you can almost touch the birds in the tees.
With its contemporary and clever design behind its traditional façade, this home does not compromise on space or style. Situated in one of North Fremantle’s best streets, this is a wonderful community, just metres from the Swan River, Harvey Beach, Gilbert Fraser Reserve and a stroll to the restaurants and cafes on Queen Victoria St.
It is perfect for those looking for a peaceful sanctuary that provides the charm of yesteryear with the convenience of modern living all in one of the best locations in town!! This is a rare opportunity, a sensational location and a home packed with many unique features. It really doesn’t get much better than this.
