Your Own Slice of East Fremantle History
Nestled on a full block within one of East Fremantle's best-kept and leafiest streets, this character-laden 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom two-storey bungalow is a fine expression of English-Revivalist influences.
This property, which once included a wartime doctor's surgery, is now a warm and welcoming sprawling family home with living options aplenty.
Beyond a striking front elevation that comprises gorgeous windows with Federation awnings
lies a spacious interior.
Gleaming jarrah floorboards, leadlight windows, soaring ceilings and
tall skirting boards feature in the large entry foyer and beyond. Double doors immediately reveal a huge formal lounge room with an open brick fireplace,
and an adjacent dining room that extends through leadlight doors to the outside.
Also on the ground floor, you will find a relaxing family/television room with access to a side verandah, a massive master bedroom with ample built-in wardrobe space, a generous second bedroom or potential home office with front verandah access and a fireplace of its own, a spacious third bedroom with a study nook and storage, and a large exquisite bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub, shower and a classic pull-chain toilet.
The country-style kitchen and meals area holds the original
classic Instone double oven
wood stove in working condition, a modern gas cooktop, an electric Omega oven, a sleek white Miele dishwasher, sparkling granite bench tops and charming timber cabinetry.
Upstairs, the timber-lined children's sleeping quarters consist of a central activity/playroom and two built-in computer/study desks, two spacious bedrooms with cathedral-style ceilings, and
shared semi-ensuite access into the residence's cabin-style, second bathroom, including a shower, separate toilet, storage, skylights and wooden finishes.
Outdoors, a shimmering below-ground salt-water swimming pool is overlooked by a huge, pitched-roofed entertaining patio-with a ceiling fan and romantic twinkling fairy lights.
Secure, covered carport-parking holds at least five cars.
At the rear of the garden, a two-storey
'granny flat' makes for a perfect studio, teenager's retreat, games room or pool-house with double French doors, a kitchenette/bar, a downstairs powder room, a large upstairs bedroom and ensuite with shower and its own electric hot-water system.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll to bus stops, cafes, restaurants, East Fremantle Bowls Club, the sprawling East Fremantle Oval, beautiful Locke Park, medical facilities and the vibrant George Street food and shopping precinct from this highly sought-after location that is also very close to shopping (including the iconic local Stammers complex), Richmond and East Fremantle Primary Schools, John Curtin College of the Arts, the East Fremantle and Swan Yacht Clubs, our picturesque Swan River foreshore, glorious swimming beaches and the heart of Fremantle.
