SOUTH FREMANTLE HOME
Built on a narrow inner-city lot, this South
Fremantle home has a surprisingly spacious feel.
This is achieved through an open-plan design
spilling over two levels.
Upstairs, bedrooms have been arranged to
create distinct zones for adults and children – an
important feature for the owners’ growing family.
The ground floor is ideal for entertaining,
with a contemporary kitchen that links
seamlessly to lounge and dining areas. A mix
of raw materials, such as timber, face stone,
steel and concrete, adds to the modern look.
Large, retractable glazed doors open this
floor onto an outdoor courtyard, complete
with a landscaped pool and plant area.
Despite its open-air feel, the house retains a
sense of privacy. Most rooms face away from the
street, while a garden across the facade forms an
effective screening device.
Also at the front of the house, a roof deck
offers good solar access and maximises views
across Fishing Boat Harbour.
