Not sure I understand your problem but you can't use the ip address used 
to mount the tunnel to access the other end. You have to give an ipv6 
ULA address to each endpoint. In your case, this should be GUA Home <> 
GUA FreeBSD to mount the tunnel. To access the other end in ipv6, give 
an ULA address to each wg and you're done.

Also be sure that you put the right address in your config file
