Heritage transformed with a sea of inspirationSecluded in a charming little street with the ocean just a walk away, this early stone cottage has been freshly reinvented with a new light-filled extension inspired by the relaxed beach life.
Airy and bright, the open-plan living is a simply beautiful space, with high lime-washed cathedral ceilings and easy flow through concertina glass doors to the outdoor dining under the grapevine.
Or sit on the front verandah and contemplate the zen garden, before strolling around the corner to enjoy the welcoming South Fremantle community atmosphere, with its excellent restaurants, cafes and shopping.
Thoughtfully designed and created with quality, simplicity and care, this is a delightful interior transformation of a very pretty historic home in one of the best locations in South Fremantle.
With a white picket fence, bullnose verandah and leadlight entry, the limestone cottage opens to the traditional high-ceilinged Oregon-floored hallway. Two large, jarrah-floored, air-conditioned bedrooms open off the hallway, one with a lovely aspect over the verandah and front courtyard garden.
The new bathroom is big, bright and beautiful, with a frameless glass shower and separate toilet, and nearby are two large built-in storage cupboards. There's also a handy study nook with timber desk and white shelving.
Walk through to the air-conditioned open-plan living space and you'll be filled with delight: it's flooded with light from high triangular windows to the north and south, with smart polished concrete aggregate floors, lofty cathedral ceilings, and a wall of glass opening to the courtyard.
A Jetmaster gas log fire makes it a wonderful winter space, too. The kitchen is perfectly designed, with white engineered stone tops and island bench, aqua glass splashback, extensive white cabinetry, stainless steel fridge, Vintec wine fridge and Bosch appliances.
Flowing through to the outdoors, you'll find totally private areas for entertaining and relaxation, with a lounging area and the ideal spot for long table lunches under the grapevine by the high limestone wall. The outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off after the beach. A studio building or third bedroom offers great flexibility, including a concealed laundry, and the adjacent storage area already has a toilet, offering potential for conversion to a second bathroom.
There is rear access from a laneway, which is a great bonus, with part of the outdoor space easily configured for gated rear parking.
Be part of the vibrant South Freo community in time for summer, where old South Fremantle stone meets airy new inspiration in a way that really reflects this fantastic location so close to the Indian Ocean.
