If you have ever dreamed of a lifestyle where you can walk to the river every day, live near the beach, and come home to your own picture-perfect, weatherboard cottage, this delightful home could be for you.

Built in 1920 on historic Thompson Road, this heritage-listed cottage sits in one of the most enviable locales in North Fremantle. Built on the narrowest part of the North Fremantle peninsula, from here you are the closest you can be to both the river and the beach. Meanwhile, just metres from your front door is Vlamingh Parklands, with playground and access to scenic riverfront walk and cycle paths.

Location-wise, Thompson Road is hard to beat. Friendly, quiet yet convenient, from here you are minutes to Queen Victoria Street, with local hotspots including Mrs Brown Bar, Habitue and Brucetown, as well as the beachside eateries at Leighton, with Bib & Tucker, MRKT SPACE and The Orange Box. The house is also close to public transport, North Fremantle Primary School, the Fremantle CBD and Claremont and Cottesloe shopping precincts.

Set beyond a picket fence, the house has an attractive elevation, with deep blue weatherboards complemented with white trim and a veranda that overlooks the park down the road. Start your mornings with a run along the river followed by a cup of coffee on the front veranda when you get home.

Inside, the home is warm, inviting and cosy. A central hallway showcases picture lines, ceiling rose, beautiful cornices and tall skirtings. A compact and efficient floor plan lends itself perfectly to a couple or young family, with nicely connected spaces for family life, while the kitchen allows parents to easily keep an eye on children playing in the backyard.

On a manageable 319 sqm block, the house sits on the corner of Thompson Road and Pamment Street, with a double, covered carport parking with storage shed at the rear.

At the back of the home is the light-filled open-plan kitchen and dining, which connects to a big covered patio. Bright and protected, you can live and entertain out here year-round. Have friends round for dinner under the stars while the kids run around, or just curl up with a wine and unwind at the end of the day. Tidy and pretty, the garden offers enough plants for those who love to potter, with a small lawn, garden beds with herbs and mature deciduous trees.

The renovated kitchen is a delight, with classic white Shaker-style cabinetry, butcherblock benchtops, white subway tile splashback and shiplap wall panelling. A double basin butler's farmhouse sink sits beneath a timber French window that overlooks the pretty back garden. The kitchen has a DeLonghi oven and gas cooktop and a Miele dishwasher.

Alongside is a comfortable, carpeted north-facing family room. The renovated family bathroom has lovely timber-framed windows that add warmth to a timeless colour palette of dark grey floors and white subway tile walls. There is a bath, separate shower, vanity with storage and underfloor heating.

There are three good-sized bedrooms, each with high ceilings and polished jarrah floorboards. Two spacious bedrooms are at the front of the house. The first offers a park view, with timber double sash windows; the other has a large built-in robe. The third bedroom has a double French door entry and offers ideal versatility for use as a playroom, home office or study. The house has split system air-conditioners.

This is a perfect home for a young family, with a playground across the road, riverside walking trails and proximity to childcare and North Fremantle Primary School. It's also an ideal home for singles, couples or downsizers after a manageable home with a small garden. Make this sweet home and enviable location yours.
