Sitting behind a white picket fence is this very iconic and completely charming Fremantle cottage. With a beautiful street presence, this rare two-storey dwelling dates back to 1897.

Timber steps shaded by street trees take you up to the front door and the balcony-height bull-nose veranda. This is the perfect spot to watch the world go by on what has to be Fremantle's most vibrant community street. The front door opens to a long, classic hallway with high ceilings, plaster archway and wide timber floorboards - these features continue throughout the property. Two good-sized bedrooms lead off the hall, each with its original fireplace, and the front bedroom opens out to the front balcony.

A light filled lounge room is the centre of the home, with access to the bathroom and laundry, and a storage room to one side. On the other side is the kitchen, where the original brick hearth is a strong central feature surrounded by cabinetry. There's plenty of bench space, a dishwasher, and a modern stainless-steel gas and electric stove.

The bathroom is nothing short of groovy, with a tiled vanity surface, skylight, and a big open shower.

The lower storey, built from limestone with decorative corbelling around the door and window, has its own street level entry. There is also a neatly concealed floor hatch in the hallway above, which gives you the choice of making the room part of the house or keeping it entirely separate.

As a separate studio on Wray Avenue the space is perfect for a home business or a stylish office with easy access for clients. The current owners have used the space successfully for their own business. It also lends itself to many other opportunities such as an air bnb let, teenage retreat or a delightful guest room.

At the rear of the home is a private courtyard with a sliding gate opening onto the rear access lane. There is room for one off-street parking bay as well as a courtyard garden escape.

The original character of this beautiful Georgian Victorian cottage had been well preserved and the home has also been enhanced with a modern colour palette of black floorboards and crisp, white walls. It has a rare configuration with its second storey entrance. - but what makes this property extra special is its location on Wray Avenue. This is one of Fremantle's premier streets for cafes and boutique shopping. You will be absolutely spoilt for choice! This property also sits directly opposite Galati and Sons grocery store and Frank's Gourmet Butcher. People travel from all areas to visit these shops, but you'll be able to be pop across the road for a bunch of fresh herbs and an extra clove of garlic while the onions are cooking! Whether you're sitting in one of the neighbouring coffee shops, or relaxing on your own front balcony, there is no better place than this to live vibrantly and to be part of what makes Fremantle so special.
