SLEEK 2-STOREY EXTENSION TO 1898 STONE CHARACTER
120 years ago this stone home was built on Fremantle's dress circle street. Now a two-storey extension adds serene minimalist spaces and ocean views, plus stunning outdoor entertaining, two living areas, secluded master suite, garden studio and double garage with rear access.
Walk down the hill to town and come home to sunset drinks looking out to the Indian Ocean from your upstairs terrace. This is a striking combination of the historic and the contemporary, with fantastic flexibility in a classic Fremantle location.
An early example of the double-fronted tuck-pointed stone cottage with bullnose verandah, the original home features high ceilings, very wide jarrah boards and four rooms: three bedrooms and a cosy lounge room with wood fire. Step through to the 21st century extension, with honed aggregate floors and extensive glass on either side creating a sense of transparency without compromising privacy. The open-plan kitchen/dining is a bright minimalist space with pale stone tops, extensive white cabinetry, walk-in pantry and stainless steel appliances including a stylish rangehood suspended over the long island bench.
Also on this level is a spacious laundry, separate toilet, very cool bathroom with exposed stone wall, and a large second sitting room with great northern light.
Head up the timber stairs to the air-conditioned ocean-view master suite, where you'll find a simply beautiful bathroom with bath, built-in-robes, and a wide terrace looking out to the horizon.
Downstairs, stackable doors to the north open to fabulous outdoor entertaining: pizza oven, covered outdoor kitchen with wide island bench and a built-in timber seating nook by the weeping mulberry. Wind through the garden to find a funky studio with jarrah floors, bed loft and cool bathroom with copper-look tiling.
An automatic double garage makes the most of rear access from Swanbourne Street, and the studio offers tempting opportunities for creating independent accommodation.
Step into the 19th century and through to totally contemporary living with all the options - this is a rare opportunity, so come and see!
