Victorian Georgian Weatherboard Moments from the Beach!

  • 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | 400 Square metres | 1 Car space

Walk to the beach, pick up your morning coffee from Queen Victoria Street just steps away and enjoy life's simple pleasures in one of North Fremantle's most sought-after heritage streets.

You will live the white picket fence dream in this lovely heritage cottage. Built in the 1890s, this Victorian Georgian weatherboard with tin roof has long drawn admiring looks, with its deep blue walls, white balustrades and distinctive limestone feature; an old stone foundation wall. Now accented with limestone blockwork and white picket fence, it is draped in sweet-smelling stephanotis, or Hawaiian wedding flower. So pretty is the home's façade, the owners have glimpsed newlyweds having their photos taken in front of it.

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the house also comes with approved architectural drawings to make it a 4 x 2, encompassing a new upper floor main suite retreat with study and views across Cantonment Hill, larger kitchen, laundry and alfresco.

As is, this house is ideal for a couple, young family, retirees or downsizers who want coastal living with a garden - and a friendly community. This quaint, heritage district is known only to its locals, who love the private walking trail to the beach, hidden playground and warm community.

Walk up to the home's lovely front veranda, where louvered windows provide protection from the sun on hot summer days. Capturing the northern light, the veranda is a perfect spot to sit in the mornings with a cup of coffee, or to relax with friends over an evening wine as the sun sets.

On a high sloping block, with the house above street level, there is perfect positioning for capturing sea breezes. Carefully considered retrofits and upgrades have made this a thermally comfortable home to live in, despite its era. The jarrah floorboards having been restored and sealed, there is new ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning and ceiling insulation, and a 6kW solar panel system to the new roof keeps bills low.

A pretty dappled glass and timber front door features a transom window above, which can be opened to pull sea breezes through the house.

There are two generously sized front bedrooms with soaring 3.5 metre ceilings. North-facing and light-filled, both have timber sash windows, timeless window treatments and large, bespoke Eurotrend robes. The western bedroom has a jarrah fireplace surround, while a third bedroom features white Plantation shutters.

A leadlight door opens to the living, with fireplace surround and beautiful restored leadlight window. Bright and cosy, the kitchen with meals area has a Miele oven, Bosch dishwasher and gas cooktop.

The rear encompasses two bathrooms. One has been beautifully renovated in classic black and white, with an art decor hexagon tile to the floor, pedestal vanity, subway tiling and glass-fronted shower over the tub. The other is older, but still tidy, with vanity, shower and toilet.

The gardens on this generous block will come as a surprise, stretching up the hill with beautiful bottlebrushes, playtpus gum and peppermint trees. Elevated, private and perfect for children, there is a rear lawn, patio, cubby, lemon tree, feijoas and a mix of natives. Come home from the beach to a heated outdoor shower or soak in the outdoor clawfoot tub. A large storage shed encompasses the laundry, and there is off-street driveway parking for two cars.

Located just steps from the Queen Victoria Street dining and restaurant hub, this dream location is close to the river, North Fremantle Primary School, transport and Fremantle CBD. The current owners moved from interstate with a newborn here and loved that they felt immediately welcomed. Make this sweet home and community yours.
