"Hidden treasure"

Great views of the ocean, lake or City depending on the aspect. Close to schools, shops, hospital, green space, transport (rail & road). Small enough community to be friendly and intimate, and light on traffic due to the absence of any min roads/cut-throughs.

Full range of house sizes from 3 to 6 bed with blocks up to 1,000m2

"Edgewater"

Has its own train station with trains to city taking 20minutes. The drive only takes 30 minutes (only 22km). Great primary school and out of hours school care. Mater Dei college for high school and ECU Joondalup for university. It is so close to Joondalup (south border) and has everything you need within a 2 minute drive, except the best beach in Perth - Mullaloo which is a 5 minute drive. Leafy green and established with a beautiful walk/cycle path around lake Joondalup and because of the lake there is so many birds. By far the best place to bring up a family in Perth.
Pros
  • near everthing
  • Good community of families
  • Good public transport
  • Green and leafy suburb
  • Hilly and undulating Ground close to Lake and Nature Reserve

"Established suburb making a comeback!!"

A matured leafy suburb with beautiful undulating topography next to a nature reserve with numerous species of fauna and home to a vast variety of local animal species. The hilltops homes provide beautiful distant views of the city and ocean. The area is located strategically between the Mitchell free-way and Wanneroo Road and a stone throw from Edgewater train station. Few minutes drive to some of the best beaches in WA and up and coming world class marina complimented by the family favourite - Hillary's!!
Edgewater has all the ingredients for good growth as it is next to Joondalup the second hub after the city of Perth. With a expanding hospital, a world class university, quality schools and colleges coupled with shopping centres and good eatery's, Edgewater is poised to be rediscovered . With future rezoning in the plans and rare big blocks available this suburb will be an investors dream with options for subdivision in the future while enjoying the current benefits of a quiet, peaceful, healthy and vibrant neighbourhood.

  • Hilly and undulating Ground close to Lake and Nature Reserve
  • Close to Freeway, Train to Perth and Joondalup
  • Near to Beaches, Marina, Hospital,University, Shopping
