72 Hampton Road

So near and yet so far

Be transported to an elegant time and place in this exquisite 1896-built limestone and iron home - all on the threshold of vibrant, bustling Fremantle.

From the moment you step inside the sanctuary of the pretty front garden and approach the gabled roof and bull-nose verandah, you can feel it - the draw of a gracious, elegant home where the bustle of the world falls away.

Soaring ceilings greet you inside, and the double-width hallway impresses with its sense of grandeur.

Wide jarrah floorboards gleam, while delicate heritage features such as stained glass and original fireplaces add to the yesteryear charm.

Either side of this stunning entrance hall, there are two generous rooms with projecting bay window looking out onto the cottage garden.

Plantation shutters and antique chandeliers add to the dreamy reverie of these rooms, currently used as a formal lounge room and a master bedroom.

Another generous bedroom further down the hall also has a gorgeous garden outlook, and large built-in robes.

The sumptuous heritage-rich feel of the home reaches a peak in the formal dining room where natural light pours in via a skylight and illuminates the sublime deep blue walls, painted in Porters paints' Catalano blue.

A study and light-filled kitchen round out the original section of the home, which was originally built for nineteenth century Fremantle hotelier Charles Henry Pierce, owner of “His Lordship's Larder” in the West End.

But more is to come.

With a large dose of surprise and wow-factor, the modern renovation at the rear of the home adds a conservatory-like light-filled living and dining area, plus mezzanine.

The pitched 5m high ceiling here allows an entire wall of glass to draw the mature trees and elegant rear garden into the heart of the home, and creates an uplifting sense of space and peace.

Terracotta tiles and whitewashed limestone walls lend a distinctly Mediterranean feel to this part of the home, and French doors beckon you out to the established garden.

A terrace beneath the tree canopy is the ideal spot for morning coffee, while the sheltered east-facing aspect means Freo's famous sea-breeze won't spoil your outdoor entertaining.
With Fremantle's cafe strip, bustling Wray Avenue, the Fremantle Arts Centre and numerous beaches all minutes away by foot, this home offers the feeling of being so far away while actually being so near.

With a private laneway, secure garage and garden toolshed, there's storage and amenity, and potential for further development.
