This semi-detached workers cottage in the well loved Plympton Ward in East Fremantle is a short stroll from George Street’s cafes, shops and the river. Perfect for the new owner who wanted to downsize from a large suburban house.
The facade of the original weatherboard cottage was updated with low maintenance landscaping, new wall and colour palette. Off the long hallway in the original part of the home are two bedrooms with original fireplaces. A sleek new bathroom was added off the hall within the old weatherboard section of the house.
A tired extension built in the late 1980’s was demolished to the rear making way for a fresh open plan kitchen/living space. The new extension does not extend beyond the footprint of the 80’s extension in order to retain a spectacular Red Flowering Gum, that is a focal point to the property’s landscape design.
I love what Jane has created for me – it’s a dream to live in.
