Seeing Double


These solidly built stone, brick and iron buildings date back to around 1897 each with a rich and interesting history. Everything from cordial manufacture to boarding house to medical services, 7 & 9 Ellen Street have been part of Fremantle's eclectic streetscape for more than a century.

Each semi-detached building boasts four main rooms accessed via a typically wide passageway, both presenting in sound and tidy condition most recently used for commercial enterprise. Returning either property to residential use as a central city abode can be easily achieved with some imagination and vigour.

Most period embellishments of the Victorian / Georgian era remain; thick cut Jarrah floors, fireplaces, high ceilings and deep skirtings prevail. Having seen a handful of semi-detached pairs converted into a single residence, the finished result is always spectacular.

On a single and rarely found title of 683 sqm zoned "City Centre" there is tremendous scope for re-development to the rear with access via a rear laneway.

Buyers are encouraged to discuss development options with the City of Fremantle as the R-AC Codes apply under the City Centre zoning availing densities up to R160 for the site subject to Local Authority endorsement. The property appears on the City of Fremantle's Municipal Heritage Inventory as a Level 2.

Whether you're an enthusiastic renovator of historic homes, an investor seeking a return, a developer, or someone needing multiple homes on the one site, this delightful property will appeal.
