Historic Character Home


Built in 1893, "Edward House" emanates charm. It has been masterfully extended and modernised to allow for all the conveniences of a modern home and is infused, throughout, with craftmanship, character and style.

This gorgeous cottage has great street appeal. Its charm is evident as you step into the private front courtyard and feel the romance of mature citrus trees, a classic bullnose verandah with timber fret work, limestone walls, tuckpointed brickwork and jarrah decking. This is just the beginning!

A central hallway leads to the 3 equally large bedrooms, all with the original wide jarrah floorboards, ornate plaster ceilings, and big, timber casement windows. The main bedroom has a wall of built-in wardrobes and the convenience of a well-appointed ensuite bathroom.

The central lounge room has a big feature window with plantation blinds. Thoughtful renovation has retained the original fireplace making it a very cosy space, while creating a seamless connection through to the kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen is a pure delight; functional, with a long, stone bench top and plenty of cupboard space. It's well-appointed with a 900mm gas and electric range cooker, dishwasher and a deep butler sink. It's also effortlessly stylish with a beautiful multi-paned timber window that looks out to the rear garden. The dining room has an equally stylish feature-brick wall and opens up to the alfresco area with timber bifold doors, creating the perfect indoor/outdoor space for entertaining.

To the rear of the home is a second bathroom with a very generous sized bath, a laundry room with lots of built-in cupboards and a separate toilet.

The alfresco dining is fully under cover for year-round entertaining and overlooks a well-planned garden which not only has ample lawn area, but plenty of mature fruit trees, including banana, mango, guava, avocado, fig, orange, lime and tangelo. Then - just to top it off - is another private sitting area next to a small herb garden!

A good-sized double garage and shed, both tucked neatly into the rear of the property, are accessed from the private side laneway.

With every feature you could want in a classic Fremantle home, this one is close to all the action of South Fremantle. Just near the corner of Little Lefroy and Hampton Roads, this location provides easy access by foot or bike to South Beach, South Terrace, Fremantle Central and all your favourite bars, cafes and restaurants.

Don't miss one of Fremantle's rarest hidden gems - 180 Hampton Road, Beaconsfield.
