156 Preston Point Road,
East Fremantle, WA
Your Opportunity to Create Your Dream Home!Wow, what a great opportunity and one that is getting rarer and rarer as homes are developed along this golden stretch of Preston Point Road in East Fremantle. Here is a massive slice of land, over 1000sqm of land, one of the biggest blocks in the street with loads of potential, ripe for restoration or re-development.
Sitting here above the street line currently is a classic art deco 1940's home. This home is rich with the classic art deco finishes including double etched glass doors, wide jarrah floors, elegant curved walls and decorative cornice and ceiling trims. It even has the classic stepped cut-outs repeating through the home. The entry is grand and welcoming with a spacious lounge to the right and a smaller dining straight ahead. To the left is a massive master bedroom. The high ceilings, curved fireplaces, and boards really add tonnes of character. Beyond the dining is a smaller second bed also with curved fireplace. The country style kitchen is an eclectic mix of styles with a newer 90cm freestanding oven and the original kitchen sink. The bathroom also has its quirks with a yellow tub and aluminium shower cubicle. Currently the side veranda is converted to a third bedroom and the laundry is an outside/inside arrangement. The whole house has merit but would need a complete restoration if you choose to keep it. However, it would look amazing if you took the challenge and you have plenty of room to add on. The best part of the home however is the front veranda. You could sit here for hours, soaking up the winter sun, on a north-east angle looking straight out over the green playing fields, the river and the city. Its a no brainer that this is where your friends will come and watch the Skyworks in summer! Imagine sitting with a coffee, watching the sunrise and the early morning cyclists, followed by the dog walkers, then the boats start moving along the river, this is the life.
This home does have a local municipality heritage rating but it is the lowest rating giving you the option of demolishing the existing home and creating your dream home, modern, sophisticated and taking advantage of a second story views. This has been done over and over along the street and with this much land and such an enviable location and view, you could have the best home on the street!
Whether you chose to renovate or re-develop the opportunity is undeniable. This is a very valuable slice of land and once all these older homes are gone, you will be unlikely to have this sort of opportunity for a long time, but the location of this property makes it even more valuable as it really has views at ground zero, and no rooftops to look over - now that's forever views!
So if creating your dream home on the river is something you desire, then don't miss out! Come along and see if this could be the site of your dream home!
