Charming Plympton worker’s cottage plus studio
In a sought-after Plympton street renowned for its community atmosphere, this worker’s cottage has been cleverly extended and updated to become a family home with a big backyard, large workshop and a new north-facing independent studio. Behind the picket fence, a native courtyard garden frames the picturesque exterior of weatherboard and corrugated iron with big windows in natural timber. This is a welcoming home full of character in a fabulous location near the river.
Step up to the elevated veranda and into a cosy lounge room with jarrah floors and a slow-combustion stove for winter warmth. Three bedrooms are near the front of the home, one with a walk-in-robe and another an exceptionally large room combining bedroom and study space in one. The sweet bathroom has a timber vanity and bath, as well as dual access from the corridor and the outdoors, and there’s an additional toilet off the laundry. A skylight lights the timber-topped kitchen and breakfast nook, looking out to the backyard.
A weatherboard extension has created expansive living and dining at the rear, with French doors to the alfresco and the back garden. The house sits at the front of the block, so there’s plenty of space in the backyard, including a pergola under the bountiful grapevine, lawn for the kids to play under a shady tree, and big cubby or garden shed. The handyman or tradie is well-catered for, with a large professional workshop on the southern side. The latest addition is a fantastic asset: a new spacious studio offering independent accommodation, with an en-suite bathroom, French doors and its own north-facing veranda.
Duke Street is a wonderfully welcoming street, famously decked out for Halloween every year, much to the delight of the children. The no-through-road is a real bonus, and it is a totally walkable location: East Fremantle Primary, John Curtin, the river, and the George Street precinct with its park, boutiques, salons, restaurants, cafes - and even a jazz bar, so you can go out for a drink and just stroll home. It’s a great place to live.
