Parkside Perfection In Its Finest Form

Auction Location: On Site.

Stunningly situated across the road from the sprawling Stevens Reserve and its picturesque Norfolk Pines, this spectacularly-extended – and impressively-renovated – 3 bedroom 2 bathroom two-storey heritage-listed home flawlessly combines unique century-old character with quality modern additions to deliver an iconic Fremantle lifestyle complemented by magical sunsets, along with wonderful ocean and island views across the harbour.

Soaring high ceilings, solid wooden floorboards, decorative cornices, skirting boards and door frames and feature leadlight windows are commonplace throughout the lower level where most of the residence's original charm has been preserved across multiple decades. The two spare bedrooms towards the front of the house are serviced by a main bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub and showerhead, as well as a separate second toilet. The laundry is also separate and has both over-head and under-bench storage space for you to utilise.

Ceiling-mounted “his and hers” showerheads highlight a sumptuous master-bedroom ensuite that also features extra bonus twin showerheads on the wall, a stylish stone vanity, toilet and feature subway tiles. Throw in a large walk-in wardrobe, a ceiling fan, carpet and access out to a lovely side verandah deck to complete the ideal “parent's retreat” where sitting back, relaxing and unwinding to the sensual Fremantle Doctor in the summer should not be underestimated.

At the rear, a bubbling outdoor spa under the patio in the corner neighbours low-maintenance artificial turf – which is the perfect place for a hammock between the palm trees – and is overlooked by a fabulous alfresco-entertaining deck, underneath the balcony. It really is the most tranquil of backyard settings.

Upstairs, high raked ceilings with exposed beams work well with the crisp clean lines created by a revamped kitchen with Hamptons-style cabinetry, sleek stone bench tops, a breakfast bar for casual meals, double sinks, an integrated range hood, stainless-steel gas-cooktop, oven and dishwasher appliances and split-system air-conditioning. Two ceiling fans in the middle of the room help circulate the cool sea breezes during summer, whilst engineered timber floorboards add a lovely finishing touch to the “reverse” floor plan that takes full advantage of seamless balcony-deck access for further entertaining – and an awe-inspiring slice of the vista at hand.

The front yard is nicely gated, revealing a welcoming garden and bull-nose entry verandah. There is also a handy gate that reveals shared right-of-way access down the side of the property, into your own single lock-up garage – complete with a door leading into the backyard.

A central and convenient location allows you to walk to schools – White Gum Valley Primary School and John Curtin College of the Arts included, public transport and even the Royal Fremantle Golf Club, with cafes and restaurants (be it the South Terrace cappuccinos trip or the vibrant George Street precinct of East Fremantle) also only a stone's throw away. The culture of Fremantle and its nightlife, markets and lush Esplanade parklands along the waterfront is no less than a hop, skip or jump front your front door too, ensuring that something special really does await you on Swanbourne Street!
