Fremantle Gazette - - RESIDENTIAL - Re­becca Coutts-Smith

One Agency South Chris Day on 0426 819 721 IF you have been hunt­ing for a home un­like any other, then this stun­ning tes­ta­ment to the Vic­to­rian era is not one to miss.

Perched up high on a rare 2949sq m block and over­look­ing Fre­man­tle, this grand lime­stone manor is sur­rounded by multi-level land­scaped gar­dens.

Built in 1884 and filled with as much his­tory as it has fea­tures, the home has been lov­ingly re­stored to en­sure it con­tin­ues for an­other 100 years.

The list of ren­o­vated and new fea­tures is long, in­clud­ing a new roof, re­stored ve­ran­das, new wet rooms, mod­ern plumb­ing and elec­tri­cal fit­tings, as well as restora­tion of the home’s lime­stone.

From front to back, the home ex­udes old world charm and so­phis­ti­ca­tion, with high ceil­ings, orig­i­nal floor­boards of jar­rah and ore­gon, mul­ti­ple el­e­gant fire­places, clas­sic ceil­ing roses and rare in­ter­nal doors im­ported from Amer­ica.

The large in­ter­nal liv­ing spa­ces are ver­sa­tile and suit­able for mul­ti­ple con­fig­u­ra­tions, with mul­ti­ple out­door ac­cess points, plenty of light and stun­ning fea­ture points through­out.

There are two liv­ing ar­eas, a kitchen and two bath­rooms, along with a sep­a­rate laun­dry.

With ve­randa ac­cess and a fire­place, the huge mas­ter bed­room is per­fect for a sit­ting area and king-size bed.

Best of all there is a grand ball­room, which can be split into two rooms to cre­ate a cosier space.
