Knutsford offers buyers access to coveted Fremantle lifestyle
October 22, 2020
JUST two terrace houses remain for sale in the final stage at Hesperia’s award-winning Knutsford residential development in Fremantle.
Knutsford is comprised of terrace houses and green title homes. The remaining terrace houses showcase two different double-storey designs, each with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Acton Projects executive director Glenn O’Connor Smith said there has been ongoing buyer interest in the community, but the level of enquiry has increased in recent months.
“With people spending a bit more time at home, they’ve realised the importance of living in a great location with a strong sense of community,” he said.
“The homes at Knutsford are highly considered and offer an opportunity to live in Fremantle for an attainable price.”
Close to Monument Hill and the historic George Street precinct, Knutsford has as a continuous streetscape in landscape design and built form, instead of an individual approach, to create a coherent sense of community.
Dwellings are courtyard orientated, with an ‘upside down’ design that sees main living rooms and terraces on the first floor and flexible spaces below.
All car parking is via rear laneways, freeing up the space for living or adaptable rooms rather than crossovers and garage doors.
With beaches, parks, schools, restaurants and cafes in walking distance, Knutsford offers buyers access to a coveted Fremantle lifestyle.
Knutsford is close to existing public transport, and a proposed new service would provide trackless trams and light rail in the area, creating an east-west connection within the Perth transport network that would see residents even better connected.
Knutsford was recognised at the Australian Institute of Architects 2016 National Architecture Awards as the country’s best multiple housing project.
