Originally completed as part of the Knutsford development, the design aspiration was to create a new generation urban condition that would be distinctly Fremantle, celebrating the history and culture of this historic port city. With an architectural language that is simple and direct, the built form achieves an urban edge and combines the use of bricks, concrete and metal to deliver a contemporary aesthetic.
Taking out two Australian Institute of Architects awards, the Knutsford won the national Frederick Romberg Award for Residential Architecture (Multiple Housing) and the The Harold Krantz Award for Residential Architecture for the WA Chapter.
With its North Eastern orientation, 2 Rochfort captures an abundance of natural light and a wonderful feel throughout. Concrete ceilings, timber floors and brick walls work harmoniously to create an understated yet elevated design.
A custom swimming pool with imported natural volcanic stone tiles anchors the outdoor area, which is offset by the mill board deck and stone pavers. Feature scaffolding creates a statement – a deliberate design choice; nodding to the urban residential history of Fremantle. Established gardens with feature lighting surround the perimeter, providing a lush green feel from the inside to out.
The kitchen features high quality joinery, a large Smeg induction cooktop, oven, dishwasher and double sink with Phoenix mixer. A large island with a nook for stools defines the space.
The open plan living and dining area provides increased scale and presence, with its high ceilings and a void which creates further volume. Feature pendant lights provide ambient lighting. A powder room with a 3rd toilet provides added convenience to the functionality of the ground floor.
Upstairs you’ll find three spacious bedrooms, including the main bedroom with adjoining ensuite. The ensuite provides a sense of drama, with its dark tiles and overhead skylight connecting you to the light above. The main bathroom continues the interior theme and benefits from a separate shower with Phoenix tapware and an extra large Japanese bath.
With a heritage founded with design integrity and quality construction, the sale of 2 Rochfort presents an opportunity to purchase an established architectural home with simply nothing left to do, but move in and make it home.
We anticipate strong interest and encourage buyers to act promptly.
