"Great, northbound fway needs work"

I love Atwell, we've been here for 2 years now.
We moved into a quiet cul-de-sac and it is still quiet.
Our street is very friendly. The street behind us is a bit dodgy and we have had some issues with lazy dog owners. The council has been helpful about 50% of the time but there are still issues.
The suburb seems to have been built around the local flora and fauna. As a consequence (in a good way) there are lots of well established reserves and trees.
It is a very family oriented place. We would like to see more people our age around, as it is mostly families in their 40s-50s with adult children (in Old Atwell) or with younger kids (in New Atwell).
It's close to Cockburn Central which means great food and shopping is available. Some of our favourite restaurants are here (we've lived in Perth for 30 years).
Easy access to the freeway, but does get busy, and the freeway north entrance is chokkas at ALL times of day.
Approx 25 minutes from Freo and the City.
Our only complaint is that it's not West Leederville or East Perth. Nevertheless it's a good place to start.

Atwell is a new and well-planned suburb with many high quality houses and great neighbourhood. Centrally location with 18mins to CBD, 20mins to beach and 20mins to airport enables it to be a great investment area or good suburd to live in. You can experience a trend of country style and modern city life style here. It should be a booming suburd in very soon coming future.

"Terrific place to raise a family"

Atwell, like its name inidcated, "at well", all is in well condition here in this suburb, houses are well designed in good shape block with beautiful gardens; different sizes of parklands or reserve suitable for kids to play or people to take to stroll; 20min to CBD, 20min to beach and 20min to airport. Its central location endows it a booming and terrific suburb up and coming!!!

"Little boxes, little boxes and theyre all made of Ticky Tacky!"

The houses all look the same on their small blocks all jammed Together. In Peak hour it takes 50 mins to get to the city. Mostly first home owners with large mortgages. Over-rated and over-valued. Much better value for money suburbs closer to the beach,river or city.
Pros
  • Walking distatnce cockburn station and Kwinana free way.
Cons
  • Small blocks
  • not recomended

NenadSusic Good comment. What suburbs would you recommend? We've started looking now and would like to know what the good value for money suburbs are. Thank you.

crsnt Small block? My house is about 570 m² . Peak hour nowadays is not that bad at all since they have widen the freeway. But since Atwell is just across the Cockburn station you can just catch the train - easy. Better value for money closer to city? If you have loads of money then it's different story. Price has become ridiculously high near the city and Atwell is perfect suburb for families in a nice quiet suburb. Cockburn is developing and it is close to Cockburn shopping center, many shops and warehouses.

"I had a investment property here this is not Perths best suburb by a long shot ,Ratings on this forum are misguiding!"

Atwell is a badly located area far from Perth city and surrounding suburbs are industrial such as cock burn. I would advise others to purchase in better areas and would think areas such as Peppermint Grove, Dalkeith, Cottesloe, City Beach, Swanbourne, Claremont etc would be more worthy contenders for best suburbs in Perth, and think the ratings on this forum are misguiding.
Cons
  • not recomended
crsnt
crsnt I have investment property here as well and have no problem finding tenants. I also lived there for some time.
I agree it's not the 'best' suburb, but it's one of the 'best' places to live in.

Comparing this suburb and location to the suburbs you mentioned is a no-brainer. You're comparing 400-500k average compared to 1million+ properties? yeah sure..

AlbenaBossi
AlbenaBossi It is really stupid to compare Atwell to Peppermint Grove. The price difference is 5+ fold. Atwell is much more affordable in comparison to above-mentioned suburbs. I live in it and apart from my always bickering neighbors, can't complain.

"Great place to live with great neighbours"

It is very close to Gateway Shopping Center and all big shops (including Bunnings, Good guys, Office works, etc) and they are still building more! There is a primary school as well inside the complex for families with kids :)

Transport is very easy with bus going around the complex and train station is nearby.

The neighbours are very friendly and they look after each other.

Overall it's an excellent suburb to live in and it is really quiet and peaceful. Can obtain fast NakedDSL too for internet connection!
