Love at First Sight
Please contact agent for opening times.
Built circa 1900, North Fremantle’s iconic “Soap Factory” was converted to a small group of stunning apartments in the 1980’s. This is the jewell in the crown and put it simply, you will not find anything else like it in Western Australia.
From all 5 levels, there are jaw dropping views looking East over the Swan River’s picturesque Rocky Bay to the Perth Hills and from the top two levels, you can enjoy the famous Perth sunsets over the sparkling Indian Ocean with Rottnest Island in clear sight..
Even if this property didn’t have these exquisite views, it would still take your breath away.
Steeped in history and cleverly renovated by the current owners who have 4 children, the spread of the floor plan and large rooms allow for great separation, with a number of communal areas for the family to come together.
Upon entry on the ground floor, your will hardly believe what you see. Capacious ceilings with historic Oregon Pine beams and a central glass lift lie in the foreground of a massive indoor sanctuary, with a sparkling pool, limestone boulders and large palm trees. Saying it has a resort feel is an understatement. It is a resort – your own private resort 365 days a year. Also on this level is your direct entry via a secure double garage, a large living room, river view laundry and a full bathroom.
Up the lift or stairs on level 1 is one bedroom and a river view study and on level 2, things start to get really incredible. Three bedrooms, each with their own sitting room, boast historic features and modern conveniences and share a bathroom.
Up the spiral stair case or lift one more level is the main living area, with a beautifully spacious and bright open plan kitchen/living and dining zone, designed to maximise the irreplaceable river and ocean views. The soaring ceilings and historic features will again wow you but you will also love the “appliance wall” and modern conveniences. There’s even a secret wine cellar on this level, accessed by a cleverly hidden trap door.
The top level, level 4, is the master suite, with a large bedroom, ensuite bathroom, ocean view windows to the West and a dreamy roof top balcony overlooking the river to the East where you feel on top of the world.
With direct river access via the reserve across the road, you can swim or fish or kayak to your heart’s content, or head over to the beach by foot or on your bike for an ocean swim. Numerous cafe’s and bars plus bus and train stops are also just a short walk away, all reasons why this is such a tightly held and much desired pocket of Perth’s premium real estate.
This home was significantly transformed in the last few years to suit families of all ages, large or small and to put it in a nutshell, will be love at first sight.Contact Agent
