Charming Character on Carrington - Viewing this Weekend


Calling for offers at Less than Land Value! Excellent buying in Beaconsfield - so many options: is this your next home, with studio for visiting friends and relatives? Or is it an investment with excellent rental returns? Want to rebuild? You could live here while planning your new home. Or take advantage of the SCA5.7 zoning to subdivide under the Freo Alternative guidelines.

Set back from the road, there is so little traffic noise once you're inside the home or in the sheltered rear garden you won't believe you're so close to all the popular attractions that Fremantle offers.

One of the few remaining character cottages in the area, this charming home has been lovingly maintained and updated while retaining the gorgeous original features. Set amidst the generous established garden, on 727sqm, with sheltered outdoor entertaining areas to the front and rear, complemented by a beautiful enclosed spa, this home has wooden floors, high ceilings and period fixtures, and provides a welcoming retreat for all who enter.

Entering the home from the covered front patio, the lounge is a welcoming space with characteristic high ceilings and wooden floors, and air con and a wood burning stove for added comfort. The service hatch connects the space to the functional, country style kitchen beyond, the central heart of this functional home.

The main bedroom, to the front of the home, has built in robes and an air-con to keep you cool in the warmest of weather. Two additional bedrooms are generous in size, with large windows, high ceilings and a welcoming period atmosphere, the rear bedroom has external doors leading to the sweet scenic deck, with access to the garden and parking beyond; the flexible layout will appeal to busy families and entertainers alike.

To the rear of the home the stylishly renovated bathroom, with double sinks, and laundry area leads out onto the covered alfresco, where you'll spend your evenings enjoying the spectacular sunsets. Entertaining outdoors is a pleasure with a sheltered alfresco dining area, a large covered spa in the centre of the back garden, and a fire pit serving as a centrepiece for convivial gatherings where you and your guests will linger late into the night. In an elevated position, this home captures the cooling sea breeze on the warmest of summer nights and offers spectacular sunset vistas.

A wonderful bonus feature of the property is the modern and stylish, beautifully designed self-contained "Tiny House". Tucked away in a corner of the garden, private and secure, the layout and location is ideal for visitors, as a teenager's or grandparent's retreat, or for generating income as a holiday let. With a third parking bay and side access, the Tiny House is sure to be a hit with any of your visitors. Alternatively the space is ideal for use as a home office. Within a designated "Freo Alternative" zone, you could take advantage of the new SCA 5.7 planning rules which allow for urban infill (more information on the City of Fremantle website).

For the handyman, mechanic or hobbyist looking for additional space you'll find the large powered workshop, with double door access, provides more than enough space for all your needs. Garden equipment and extra gear can be stored in a shed to the rear of the property and there's more than enough room for the chickens, who inhabit the run on the northern boundary fence. Indulge your green fingers and grow your own vegies within the reticulated, established garden, with mature shade trees and grey water system. The home has benefited from recent renovations, including rewiring and new plumbing.

Well located with local features including: popular schools, inviting parklands, the Fremantle Farmers' Market, local shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. With excellent public transport links and proximity to Fremantle, this home offers you access to our unique Freo lifestyle.
