"If you like living in a shoe-box"

If you are thinking of getting an old place in Shenton Park and re-building, think again. Shenton Park is part of Subiaco council which has one of the toughest building guidelines in Perth. Most blocks in Shenton Park are small and expensive but the strict building guidelines only allow for small second storeys (20% coverage). This is fine if you're a childless couple or empty nesters but not great for growing families. Many homes in Shenton park are old and shabby because no one wants to waste their money developing these blocks. I am speaking from experience.

Shents If you want a large block (made largely of a large front verge) go to Nedlands. Shenton Park is largely made up of young professional couples with kids, so much so Rosalie Primary is continually expanding and was also last year Primary School of the year. From my experience many homes have been done up and continually are...look at all the reno activity on the streets in recent years...
