Tucked away in a prestigious part of historic Fremantle, this Manor Homes property is a perfect example of how intelligent design combines with style, to create a modern residence that maximises the potential of a narrow block.
With its crisp white finishes offset by recycled brick, limestone, and natural timber, the style and pallet used by Manor Homes screams contemporary Fremantle. Our brief was to create a family home with a calm ambiance throughout, that would provide a welcoming backdrop for entertaining. The cool interior has been achieved by using of a combination of neutral colours, polished concrete floors, organic textures and industrial chic lighting.
With only a 10m frontage this deep but narrow block flows beautifully from start to finish. The front porch showcases exposed iron beams and leads into a foyer that is flooded with natural light and features an open tread staircase which accentuates the sense of space.
A gallery seamlessly connects the entry to the dining area and incorporates an activity room with low set windows allowing natural light to filter through the home.
The kitchen is a triumph, beautifully appointed, it’s linked to the living and dining yet can be closed off from the front of the home with an oversized glass sliding door, providing the illusion of an uninterrupted view.
The Manor Homes design team chose to mix high gloss and wood-grain kitchen cabinetry with industrial pendant lighting to create a polished industrial aesthetic. This is complimented by large bi-fold doors that flow through to the backyard with its stunning alfresco entertaining area. The ground floor is completed by a powder room and laundry, conveniently located off the foyer and close to the garage door.
The north facing balcony allows natural light to filter through the second storey of this Forrest Street home. The stairs flow onto a landing which opens out into a small lounge area which creates visual boundary between the three spacious double sized bedrooms to the rear of the home. With its own ensuite and walk in robe, the luxurious master suite enjoys pride of place at the front of the house.
