Lot 1/11 Cantonment Street

The Commercial Club

Stunningly located right in the centre of Fremantle's cosmopolitan beating heart is this remarkable character property offering fabulous potential - be it for commercial purposes, residential uses or a mixture of both.

This Federation-style bungalow is socially significant in local business history as the headquarters of the Commercial Travellers' Association from 1914 and, subsequently, the Fremantle Commercial Club from 1941. Nowadays, a generous street frontage with a gated entrance reveals a full-width verandah entry deck with a series of double doors that are shaded by beautiful established trees, married with a stunning two-bedroom apartment sitting above everything else. Its own separate side entrance makes this property truly unique in every single aspect.

Downstairs, the entry foyer doubles as an office reception, whilst the current front studio makes for a perfect lounge room with a charming winter fireplace and double-door access to the deck. Solid wooden floorboards, soaring high ceilings, feature tall skirting boards and decorative ceilings and cornices are commonplace throughout and merely add to the appeal here.

The versatile lower level could be anything, even a possible 4x1 residential setup with two large bedrooms for the kids, right next to an activity room – or a waiting/board room for commercial purposes, complete with a huge double-door under-stair storeroom. Another massive studio can easily be converted into a third bedroom or extra living room, whilst another office (or fourth bedroom) has built-in desks, a storeroom and extra storage options. There is also a kitchenette-come-potential laundry with a sink and plumbing, plus a spacious bathroom with a shower, vanity, two cubicle toilets, a hand dryer and original terrazzo stone finishes.

Upstairs, the self-contained apartment is screaming out to be utilised as an Airbnb for some extra income. High angled ceilings and a host of skylights ensure that it is well lit, with both bedrooms decently proportioned and separated by a modern open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. The apartment also has its own separate laundry and bathroom, whilst secure tandem parking for up to three cars provides you with peace of mind beyond an electric driveway access gate.

With an inner-city development zoning, the imagination runs with the possibilities this wonderful property offers, just footsteps away from shops, restaurants, groceries, the vibrant cappuccino strip, bars, nightclubs, bus stops, Fremantle Train Station and the harbour itself. Best of all, the location is so quiet that you won't even know just how close the action actually is!
