Built by Captain Andrew Mills back in 1887, a prominent Fremantle master mariner who's most notable feat of seamanship was when the Minderoo was caught in a severe cyclone off Monte bello Island, near Onslow, in 1918. The ship was almost ashore, but Capt. Mills managed to manoeuvre the Minderoo (and crew on board) round to safety and out to sea again.
Rich in historic old world charm providing a satisfying sense of connection to the port city's past, 24 Hampton Road is elevated and boasts wonderful street appeal with steps that lead up to the front veranda of this charming limestone cottage.
Internally the soaring high ceilings, stunning pine Oregon floor boards, picture rails and ceiling roses are a reminder of the history of the home whilst the recent renovations offer modern day living at its finest.
The sense of space is evident as you enter the home through the extra wide hallway leading to three large double bedrooms and spacious central living room with gas log fireplace.
At the rear of the residence, is a beautifully appointed modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, stone bench tops and glass splashbacks. The kitchen opens out to a stunning alfresco area with a bohemian Freo vibe which is perfect for entertaining all year round.
Tucked in behind the kitchen is a modern bathroom with separate WC, laundry, drying courtyard, double lock up garage with storeroom and shed.
Historic homes like this rarely come to market. Be a part of this wonderful history alongside Captain A. Mills and make this charming home yours.
