Overview

About the property

We hope you enjoy your haven in this wonderful part of the world. Perfectly located right in the heart of the Old Fremantle precinct, on top of retail space, 1904 is a perfect place to escape the bustle of the city and revel in the space that this old building offers. Entry into the property does involve an ivy covered rear access, into the property’s historical rear lane and stairs, but when you step thru the door into the light filled refurbished apartment complete with original polished Jarrah floors and 15ft high ceilings, you will feel at home. 1904 is equipped with 54.5 inch LCD television and blue ray, and fully functional kitchen and laundry and most items needed to ensure your stay will be comfortable and a success.

Being situated on top of the famous Hush coffee shop, there is easy access to quality coffee and the lifestyle of Fremantle!

Access is via the heritage undercover rear laneway utilised by the café and apartment guests - The entry at the top of the stairs opens into the entry come dining room, the table seats 4 comfortably, pass through to access the kitchen on the left.

The kitchen is complete with easy clean glass cooktop and oven, fridge, microwave and Mp3 player hook up via speakers - or proceed right down the passage to the bedroom. With queen size bed, premium linen, a place to unpack and hang up your clothes.

The bathroom is complete with bath tub, and full length mirror which serves as a door to the small but well equipped laundry with front loader washer, dryer, large sink, ironing board, iron and drying rack. The end of the passage opens up to the sitting room. This room faces High Street below, (no access) is light and sun filled, from its soaring windows and is a place to relax and enjoy. The entertainment area includes the 54.5 inch LCD television hooked up to BluRay. There is also a micro stereo player ipod/phone compatible with Thunderbolt connection. A small desk is provided with a printer and connection, to catch up with friends or address the mounting emails.

Whilst 1904 is a single bedroom unit, it is extremely spacious and inviting, boasting a floor area greater than many modern 2 or 3 bedroom constructions. It would suit those with a passion for the lifestyle that Fremantle can offer and the idiosyncratic nature of the buildings and access surrounded by the vitality of life. It is far removed from a 16 square metre hotel room and will surely delight you.

Fremantle is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, These include: The Round House which was built in 1831 & is the oldest public building in W.A, The Esplanade Hotel which was built in 1890s and the Fremantle Prison which was built by convict labour in the 1850s.

Fremantle was establlished in 1829 as a port for the fledgling Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history. Fremantle became a city in its own right by 1929, and survived the building demolitions of the 1890s and the 1960s. The city emerged in 1987 when it was the host city for the Americas Cup sailing challenge, as a city rich in heritage and character.

Freo as it is also known to the locals, is home to a 500-strong fishing fleet and a vast number of yachts and pleasure craft. Two significant historical replica ships were built here: The HMS Endeavour and the Duyfken which was the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666.

1904, is located in the Old Port City of Fremantle, commonly known as The West End and was originally part of a package of land from 66-70 High Street. It was then the site of Stone cottages, which dated back to the areas earliest settlement from 1829. At that time cottages and terraces characterised the West End. High street was named Following English custom, as it was then the main Street of the town. Eastward from William Street the roadway was completed by convict labour.

The buildings from 66-70 High Street, were redeveloped between , during the W.A. Gold Boom of the 1890’s- 1910. Most building development in The West End at this time was associated with the Shipping Industry. Many of the existing Warehouses, Hotels and commercial buildings date to this period. Also note that the buildings 66-70 high St, were designed by Architect Mr F.W Burnell, and are a representation of the Federation Free Classical Style, complete with ornate columns and faux balconies. He retired to Melbourne with his wife in 1908, hence this building may have been his last work in Fremantle.

Australian Post records show the first Tennant of 68 High Street 1904 to be Armstrong Cycle & Motor Agency. It has been home to many businesses since then, and if the walls could speak, it would tell stories of the constantly changing face of Fremantle. It is currently a café, coincidently popular with many cyclists today.

Many of the Historic buildings in this precinct have been restored by Notre Dame University, and house their Campus. The Students and staff have invigorated the heart of the West End.

Wonderful apartment, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home after our wonderful stay in Fremantle. What a great apartment! We are friends with the owners of the cafe downstairs so it was perfect in that regard – but in so many other ways too. Beautiful space, and plenty of room for 2 adults and a baby.

Alison is very accommodating and left us with codes and keys and we figured it all out easily without even needing to make any phone calls. The space is absolutely beautiful: soaring ceilings and tastefully furnished. It has everything you'd need: fresh white towels, tea bags, all the little things you don't want to have to worry about. And I liked that the place wasn't wallpapered with lots of complicated instructions to visitors. None of that, just simply an excellent place to stay in the best possible location!

Stairs to the door are a bit steep and there can be a little bit of noise from the street, but that's part and parcel of being in such a great spot, didn't bother us in the slightest.

We had a couple of friends come over and they were really glad to find out about it – means they'll have a good place to recommend to friends visiting them from interstate.

Very nice and spacious apartment at a very convenient location. Suitable for early morning birds though as the downstairs cafe starts business around 6am and is quite noise
