Grand Family Estate

Baker House. Built in 1906 during a period of rapid growth around Fremantle due to the rail link to Perth, opening of the inner harbor and the Gold Rush, this splendid residence perfectly reflects the grandeur and elegance of a bygone era. A magnificent juxtaposition of old and new; with grand proportions, remarkable space and considerable street presence, 51 Lefroy Road is an exceptional example of Federation Filigree architecture and a landmark property in Beaconsfield.

The exterior emanates classic character appeal with a wide bullnose verandah, timber fretwork and flawless tuck-pointing. Formal front gardens with symmetry and order are designed to highlight with manicured boxwood hedging, neatly planted garden beds, limestone borders, steps, elegant cobblestone paths and cast-iron gates.

Inside, a long traditional hallway with spectacularly ornate coffered ceilings set the grand tone for this glorious family home. Two large bedrooms leading from either side of the hallway have fabulously high ceilings, ornate fireplaces, desk space, a wall of built in robes and French doors opening to the front verandah.

Beautifully proportioned living and dining rooms amaze with lofty coffered ceilings, incredibly intricate ceiling roses, breathtaking wedding cake icing’ cornices and majestic fireplaces.

Beyond, a magnificent handcrafted jarrah staircase rises to the gloriously sundrenched master bedroom. A long wall of French doors opens to a balcony with beautiful wrought iron fretwork and stunning Fremantle and harbor vista. Approval to add en-suite to upper level has been granted.

The gorgeously indulgent and stylish bathroom features hexagon floor tiles with underfloor heating, freestanding claw-foot bath, double vanity with marble counter, shower, two heated towel rails and WC.

Pressed metal panels and gleaming jarrah floors adorn the hallway leading to the huge kitchen at the rear. Custom designed, state of the art and flooded with light from all sides, it’s simply world class. Ornate plaster ceilings, gorgeous tessellated tile floors and a striking fireplace maintain the connection to a Federation past, whilst stone counters, a fabulous 3m island bench with casual seating, white gloss cabinetry, smoked mirror splashback, the finest integrated appliances and stacking servery windows bring it firmly up to date.

Doors lead out to a fabulous limestone sunken terrace and huge alfresco, connected to the kitchen via a bar and servery windows, set amongst expansive lush tropical walled gardens. On the opposite side, an undercover terrace with built in limestone seating is a lovely spot to relax.

The superb two storey self-contained Coach House is accessed either via the double garage or rear gardens. It’s ideal private space for guests, grandparents, teenagers or au-pair, with open plan living and dining, well-appointed kitchen, shower room and separate WC, European style laundry, mezzanine bedroom plus huge master bedroom and retreat tucked under the eaves. The balcony offers stunning views over Fremantle to the glittering Indian Ocean.

Located around the corner from Beaconsfield Primary and just a few minutes stroll to South Fremantle’s caf strip and beach. Public transport is on your doorstep and the cycle route takes you right into the heart of Fremantle.
