'Gresham' Circa 1890

20 John Street, North Fremantle, WA 6159

5 bed3 bath2 car

A true character stone home of generous proportions prominently located on the Gil Fraser Reserve in North Fremantle with the river beyond.

From the entry through a lead-lighted door to a wide entrance hall, you are promised something special.

The accommodation consists of five beautiful bedrooms including a phenomenal master suite with its own private balcony, three bathrooms, study, kitchen/meals, super generous laundry with original 'Metters' hearth. The enormous living room complete with an effective use of a voided ceiling, wood fire and billiard table opens out to the rear garden. Upstairs opens to the 4 metre wide verandah and viewing tower offering views over the entire oval to the river beyond.

The garden is accessed from each room on the ground floor and also through the original carriageway which bares the mark of many people who have enjoyed their time in North Fremantle. This area of the residence anchors the home in the early history of this suburb as men and women gathered to go to War, to play and recreate or just spent time with family and neighbours.

The garden is a special private green calming space featuring a pool and Cabana area with BBQ and dining area. There is a contained studio above the garage accessed from the rear laneway adjacent to the 'Gresham Village' where your future community of like minded souls resides.

Internally there are very high ceilings (some decorative), heritage pine and jarrah floors, open fireplaces, two timber staircases, brilliant granite topped kitchen which just simply invites your guests to join you. It's easy to find 'your' special space in this rarest of homes, with light, breeze and most of all, room to move on the wide frontage lot of nearly 800 square metres.

We are sure that the ‘Gresham’ on John Street will provide you and your family with a life beyond all others as it has for all those that have trod the path before you.

But tread fast now as it's time to move this family home onto the next generation.
