Building a new home signals the start of a new chapter. And a significant part of that will be your choice of where to build.
Your choice of neighbourhood should be determined by your desired lifestyle. For example, if your ‘happy place’ is the beach, then you’ll be happiest building as close to the coast, so you can see the water as much as possible. If you work in the city and despise being stuck in traffic, you’ll have to consider your commute while looking at house and land packages.
Perth is one of Australia’s most sprawling cities, with new homes being completed every day! So where to build? North or South? Residents from both sides of the river have given their take on their home turf to help point you in the right direction...
NORTH OF THE RIVER
“Well for a start, the city is on the north side of the river. We have beautiful beaches like Trigg and Scarborough, plus popular café strips in Leederville and Mount Lawley. I don’t even have a need to drive south of the river”
“I love living north because you can find new homes which are generally halfway between the beach and the Swan Valley. Life is good on the north side!”
“I spend most of my weekends in Scarborough. It’s been redeveloped with new cafes, restaurants and bars, plus there are more changes to come!”
SOUTH OF THE RIVER
“I think living on the south side offers some of Perth’s best scenery. If you love being active outdoors, you must try ‘The Bridges Walk’. Popular for cyclists, joggers and walkers, the ‘bridges walk’ loops the Swan River foreshore from South Perth to the city foreshore, connected by the Narrows bridge and The Causeway. It’s a great workout with a spectacular view!”
“My family spends a lot of time at Point Walter. The reserve has spectacular views over the Swan River. It’s only five minutes from Fremantle and 20 minutes from Perth’s CBD”
“The ‘south side’ has amazing places to spend weekends, like Burswood Casino, Perth Zoo and Garden City Shopping Centre. Plus, being south of the river, you’re home sooner when returning from holidays ‘down south’, such as driving back from Margaret River”
