Freo's View

The historic Warders Cottages next to the Fremantle Markets in the Henderson Street Mall still have not been sold and the Heritage Council hopes these six will be sold to one owner.

The Police and Court precinct, including the cottages next to it were sold to Freo developers Silverleaf.

The cottages that have been sold so far fetched on average $ 600,000.00  each.

They are very tiny and definitely not suitable for a small bar as the steps to the first floor are very steep and the rooms claustrophobically small.

I wonder though if the new security gate is really the best solution at these heritage buildings and if not something more suitable and sympathetic to the old style could have been installed. Pretty bad taste!

    The block of houses next to the Police Station are in fact large because they are two units joined as one.

    Why are they being sold as a bundle? I would have thought a higher price would have resulted if they were available to individual buyers who could buy 1, 2 or 3. Just a thought about more buyers = higher price.
