Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
Mulberry Mansion is most succinctly described as a four-star, five-bedroom resort-style holiday home set within suburban Fremantle. But in many ways it defies that description, because it’s utterly unique. Eclectic, baffling, a living piece of artwork; all of these cover it, but not quite. It’s a residence built by artists, for artists, and will totally blow your mind. Crafted from limestone, tin and recycled bricks and timber over six sprawling, maze-like levels, it’s a dreamy descent down the rabbit hole from which you might return – but possibly not as the same person. Kids are welcome, in fact, they love its eccentricities, but beware: there are staircases and water features everywhere (magical wardrobes too, no doubt), so be vigilant.
The Mansion is also very proactive with local partners, so you can rustle up anything from a limo to a private DJ to a Swedish chef if the mood takes you. Every room unique. Around ever corner, a surprise. See for yourself.
