A PIECE of history combined with contemporary New York-style warehouse living is available in Fremantle, opposite The Roundhouse near Bathers Beach and E Shed markets.
The building was originally built for shipping firm Dalgetty & Company and designed by Sir John Joseph Talbott Hobbs.
It went through several commercial incarnations before being redeveloped into 13 luxury apartments in 1997, with the heritage characteristics and warehouse scale of the original brick and stone building retained.
This home is at the end of the building and will impress with its open spaces, exposed timber beams, steel-framed arched windows that let in plenty of natural light, timber flooring and striking colour scheme.
It is built over four levels and has a huge open-plan living/dining area with pot belly-style gas heater and kitchen with timber cabinetry, ample bench space, stainless-steel appliances and large windows.
This incredible space is ideal for family living or entertaining.
There are four large bedrooms and three bathrooms, including one with a clawfoot bath.
A particularly delightful space is the loft bedroom, with ensuite and access to a private rooftop alfresco area with harbour views.
It would make an ideal retreat for parents or lucky guests.
Other features include low-maintenance courtyards, ceiling fans and airconditioning.
The home is also in walking distance of the University of Notre Dame and South Metropolitan Tafe and close to to Fremantle’s popular cafe strip.
