Two spectacular historic homes are nestled in tandem on an elongated 604m2 block in a hidden pocket of Fremantle. Constructed in 1905 and 1896 respectively, these heritage homes represent a precious slice of history. The rare second dwelling provides myriad options for use, including a source of income as short or long-term rental accommodation.
Malcolm Street slopes down towards the inner harbour a mere 600 metres away, offering exceptional views of the cranes at Fremantle Port. From this tightly held location it's a short two-minute drive to the Fremantle Arts Centre, the river, and John Curtin College of the Arts (falling within the catchment area).
Set behind a limestone wall and a sweet courtyard, the front home is rendered masonry typical of the gold boom period. A wide entrance hallway with elegant arch mouldings, soaring ceilings and original jarrah floors leads to two large bedrooms, the main with a fireplace, picture rails and cropped windows. Further in, you will find a comfortable loungeroom to the left, and a dining room to the right with a fireplace creating an inviting atmosphere perfect for dinner parties. This room is sealed by one of three distinctive timber and wrought iron doors, a real standout feature. At the rear of the home, an enclosed sleepout houses a combined bathroom/ laundry and a contemporary kitchen overlooking the alfresco area, which offers an elevated vantage point to take in the peaceful landscaped gardens below.
Follow a winding garden path down to the original stone cottage built in 1896 at the rear of the block. A bullnose verandah shelters the front door, and inside original jarrah floorboards are darkened by the footfalls of people dating back to a time when horses and carts travelled up Fremantle's High Street. Two large bedrooms peel off either side of the hallway with ceiling roses and sash windows, followed by a modest eat in kitchen and a combined bathroom/ laundry with a bathtub. This home has a separate entrance with an electronic gate down the side of the block, offering buyers a versatile dwelling separately metered for water, electricity, and gas usage. This home would be a perfect location for a consulting business, inter-generational living or short or long-term rental accommodation.
The garden between the two homes feels enclosed and private and is reticulated for easy care. Established fruit trees including loquat, citrus, fig, and passionfruit are dotted throughout so you can pluck fresh fruit straight from the tree or make your own jams and preserves. In the middle of the garden is a powered workshop which could be fitted out for a teen retreat, workshop, or art studio.
This is a rare opportunity to own two historic homes set amongst fruitful gardens in wonderful proximity to Young George, La Lune café, and Sweetwater Rooftop Bar. Cross the bridge to North Fremantle to discover antique shops, music venues and specialty stores. With East Fremantle Primary School, John Curtin College of the Arts, and Christian Brothers College all less than 1km away. Versatile spaces, historic architecture, and a central location, it's all here at 24 Malcolm Street.
