Imagine coming home every day to breathtaking Swan River and Fremantle Harbour views – all yours with this stately red brick home.

Mont Property Managing Director Matthew Podesta said the 808sqm block was one of the most elevated points in East Fremantle.

“It’s a very vibrant outlook, with upside-down living to make the most of the views and a nice alfresco area towards the front of the property, which is very relaxing and airy,” he said.

This freestanding, covered and decked alfresco area is where all your summer entertaining will happen as you cool off with the Fremantle Doctor coming straight off the harbour.

In keeping with the Freo surrounds, you are welcomed into the home through a spacious tiled verandah and leadlight front door with solid timber floorboards in the entry hall that continue throughout.

Due to the elevation, even the downstairs lounge enjoys views through bay-style windows with a gas fireplace and mantelpiece as a feature.

Next door, a carpeted bedroom has mirrored built-in robes and a large ensuite with a shower, a vanity and a toilet.

Another bedroom hidden down a hallway with a door to close it off from the main hall offers privacy as a main bedroom or guest suite.

It has two walk-in robes and access to a bathroom with a relaxing spa bath, a corner shower, a vanity and a toilet.

The large rear room with cork flooring could be anything from a gym, to a games room or hobby area, with a sliding door out to a brick-paved alfresco courtyard.

Stairs lead up to the separate brick double garage designed to match the house and elevated drying courtyard.

To complete this level is the laundry with lots of bench and storage space, a linen cupboard and a powder room.

Head up the tiled staircase to be hit by the view from the picture windows in the open-plan living and dining area.

The kitchen is well appointed, boasting solid timber cabinetry, high-end European appliances and stone benchtops, plus there is a bonus kitchenette on the other side of the living space.

Off this area is a home office with glass French doors to provide privacy while still enjoying the outlook.

Go past three double-door storage cupboards into a bedroom with built-in robe and semi-ensuite access to a bathroom with a shower, a vanity and a toilet.

The bathroom is also directly accessed from another bedroom with a built-in robe, while out in the hall there is a powder room for easy use from the living area.

“This is a classic East Fremantle home that is quite sympathetic to its location,” Mr Podesta said.

“The owners have maintained it really well and left the options open for the next person, allowing opportunities for enhancement.

“In and around Fremantle there’s so many new bars, cafes and restaurants, and it’s super close to the coast.

“It’s a very strong lifestyle location at the intersection of Fremantle and the western suburbs.”
