Two Historic Stone Cottages - Under One RoofWelcome to one of North Fremantle's grand quintessential homes nestled between the river and the sea on a large 847sqm of land.
The story of 15 Thompson Road began back in 1883 when Corporal Thomas Marten was gifted a generous parcel of land. He originally built a two room stone cottage for his wife and 4 children. By 1895 the property consisted of a total of 9 rooms.
Almost 100 years on; the current owners restored and extended this unique property, but not without retaining its integrity and charm. They engaged heritage architect Ron Bodycoat.
Today, the home offers two stone cottages with seamless and sympathetic additions to provide the versatility of two homes, or one with separate living zones surrounded by a natural garden setting.
There are several sitting rooms, 5 bedrooms, a study and 3 bathrooms - all with endless and impressive features. The main residence incorporates a functional layout with a traditional entrance hall, front bedroom, formal dining, office and central bathroom. The kitchen is a delight and features authentic timber cabinetry and a wood fired, electric range oven.
Upstairs you will find a quiet haven with two large bedrooms that share a dual ensuite, and a lovely central sitting room complemented by high pitched timber ceilings, a wood combustion burner and french doors which lead out to a north facing balcony.
The second home is also accessible from the grand front verandah. It offers a further two large bedrooms, sitting room, bathroom and a charming kitchen adjoining the inviting conservatory.
This is a timeless home with classic craftsmanship. Warm materials have been consistently used to enhance the open fireplaces, timber encasement windows and doors, and attractive timber flooring. Some of which are jarrah planks with handmade nails!
With a prime North Fremantle location this property enjoys the benefits of being within walking distance to the ocean and river foreshore. From the front veranda you can overlook the green expanse of Gordon Debman Park, or slip through your own rear gate to McCabe Park. Local cafes, restaurants, schools and shops are all within easy reach.
Unconventional homes with such history and enormous soul are a rare find. Come and view a home that has retained its authentic integrity and still offers all the modern comforts for today's lifestyle.
