AUCTION THIS SATURDAY 15th September 12noon


2 Storey Character Home

This unique turn of the Century limestone semi, retaining much of its original character over 2 storeys, is a real surprise. Don't be fooled by the humble facade, for once you step into the wide entrance hall with high ceilings and a decorative plaster arch, it has all the makings of a gracious, grand old home.

Three large bedrooms with high ceilings and wide floorboards lead off the main hallway - one with its original fire place and ceiling rose, and two retaining their original sash windows.

The lounge at the end of the hallway is a delightful room with its original fire place, a large picture window, and a doorway to a deep L shaped balcony with views of the productive garden and surrounding treetops. What better place to soak up the winter sun and perfect Northern light?

A charming wooden staircase takes you down to the kitchen with original tiled hearth and panelled pantry under the stairs. A wide hallway leads to a second living room or 4th bedroom, and into an undercroft storage area, which is seemingly cut into the limestone hill. Amazingly, this room still houses the concrete grape stomping vat with its handy hatch for barrowing in the produce!

The garden is long with some wonderful mature plants including grapevines, olive, bay and citrus trees, but with the prize being a pair of 50 year old avocado trees, currently producing the most superb and abundant crop of fruit.

There are a few outbuildings in the back yard including the large bathroom, which is close to the back door and houses bath with shower, sink and toilet. Next door is the laundry with an original Metters copper and concrete twin tubs. There is also a barbecue nook, outdoor toilet, and a good single garage built of recycled brick. There is plenty of room here to extend the home whilst retaining a good amount of garden.

Situated a stone's throw from Monument Hill, around the corner from the George Street Precinct, and walking distance to Freo Central and the river, the property is also in the catchment area for John Curtin College of the Arts and East Fremantle Primary.
While the home is ripe for renovation and further improvements, it is also readily liveable whilst you plan your dream home.
