Kensington Design have created a classic and timeless limestone residence, with pitched tin roof and Juliet balcony, that perfectly compliments the existing buildings.
This Fremantle home, built on a small subdivided lot of just 320 square metres, is adjoined to a heritage listed property.
On entry the evident sophistication of the home’s interior is immediately on show. An elegant staircase sweeps upwards to the right, and the living room is seen through glazed doors. Travertine tiles warm underfoot, conspiring with subtle wall colours, highlighted architraves, skirting and feature cornices, providing a sense of grandeur.
As the centrepiece of family living, the kitchen has been crafted to reflect functional values as well as aesthetic elegance. Graced with a fabulous Caeser stone island bench top, and matching white painted cabinetry, the kitchen also boasts state-of-the-art stainless steel Bosch appliances, as well as a scullery, perfect for food preparation and storage.
The adjoining dining room has french doors on both sides providing a dual outdoor focus, whilst also creating an effective breezeway for summer cooling. The clever layout incorporates an existing small studio and wraps a new living room and kitchen and dining area around a private, and north facing courtyard with built in BBQ.
The upper floor stair landing links the library and the master bedroom suite. The library incorporates a reading nook, fireplace and built in bookshelves. French doors lead from the library to a romantic Juliet balcony, overlooking the majestic Fremantle Harbour. The master bedroom opens to a luxuriously appointed ensuite bathroom and generous dressing room.
As secret underground wine cellar with brick faulted ceiling adds another dimension to complete this charming home.
Recycled brick, coupled with limestone feature walls and a built in barbeque create the perfect alfresco entertaining area.
The home’s passive solar design provides warmth in winter, and takes advantage of the fabulous “Fremantle Doctor” in summer, cooling the home down with cleverly designed breeze paths.
Longstanding hallmarks of Kensington Design’s individually designed masterpieces, elegance and sophistication, define this beautiful Fremantle home.
