Fremantle home swap

My wife Leonie and I have recently downsized to this double storey three bedroom, study and open plan living-dining-lounge home in Beaconsfield which is part of greater Fremantle. The house is four years old, and the downsizing came in the size of the block rather than the size of the interior of the home. We love the new house because it's airy, light and in a very friendly neighbourhood. It's equipped with everything you'd expect -- air conditioning in each room, al fresco area alongside the open plan living area, strong Wi-Fi connection allowing Netflix and other programs to be shown through the net.

About the location

Fremantle is Perth's suburb that nobody can really quantify but everybody loves to visit because of its array of cafes and restaurants, great pubs, and proximity to the beach (12 minute walk from our front door). Leonie and I moved here because we can walk into the heart of town, the Cappuccino Strip with wall to wall cafes, or just down the road to the Local Hotel (five minutes from the front door) or the coffee shops or restaurants, many withing a seven-minute walk. It's a friendly, quirky and entertaining suburb because its heritage features the people who made it so different - the Italians, Croats, Serbs, Portuguese, Spanish etc. These days, Fremantle has attracted many artists and professionals to take up residence here to live side by side with the older European migrants who grow veggies and herbs on the verges. Fremantle has Rottnest Island only 20km off the coast and has many attractions such as museums and galleries, a fishingboat harbour where you can sit in one of the many waterside bars and watch life go by. That's why we moved here. And if you need to, there's a regular train service from Fremantle to Perth. It's also ideally located to make a bolt down to the famed Margaret River Wine country, around three hours away.
