Reviews of Kelmscott, WA

"Champagne on a beer budget"

I love how this suburb is close to so many national parks, nature and the hills, but at the same time has great transport options and shopping. Not too far off from the city, but not too close. Sweet spot for nature lovers, families and people with pets who love long walks.

"Great suburb to settle down or to invest"

Kelmscott is great for first home buyers or investors as prices are still affordable, but not for long it seems. Would strongly recommend entering Kelmscott market ASAP to avoid missing out on extraordinary price growth.

"Lovely neighbourhood"

Rented out a house 6 months ago and quite enjoying living in the area. Great suburb for people with pets and kids as plenty of parks around to run and exercise. Good shopping and reliable public transport.

"Up and comer suburb"

Kelmscott is quite a diverse suburb including the affluent and more remote hills as well as the more convenient and more affordable areas close to shopping, transport, schools and hospital. Overall, the area has improved a lot and is gentrifying by the day. Quite possibly the best value for the money suburb in Perth with close proximity to most important amenities such as jobs, shopping, schools, hospital, public transport...

"Booming property prices - one of the best investment suburbs in Australia right now"

During COVID-19 house prices in Kelmscott jumped from 280k for a median house to 387.5k: https://www.realestate.com.au/neighbourhoods/kelmscott-6111-wa This is a gold mine and I am so happy I invested a couple of years ago. All investment fundamentals make sense: access to public transport, schools, hospital, shopping... Rental yield jumped to 5.5%, vacancy levels are close to zero, this is a perfect investment suburb which will keep exploding. Kelmscott's proximity to national parks and huge number of local parks and trees separates it from the surrounding neighbourhoods. Affluent pocket within Kelmscott on the hills is gradually expanding and I see this suburb completely gentrified very fast. Huge investment opportunity right now!

"Likely best value suburb in Perth, convenient location and great for families"

Kelmscott's got it all for an affordable price of around 300k for a 3BD house: good shopping, plenty of good quality schools, major medical centre, short 5 minute ride to nature and hills as well as to the airport and city, only around 25-30 minutes. Would recommend it to families as it is quiet and has plenty of parks and nature for walking pets or playing with kids.

"You have everything you need."

Kelmscott is just 23 km southeast of Perth. It is a well established area with everything you need all within a 5 minute drive. It is a very family orientated suburb with many great local schools. The Kelmscott Town Centre is the main commercial sector with the Kelmscott Plaza and Stargate Kelmscott Shopping Centre all located here. There is also a railway station and great public transport. You can either live on the flats or nestle up high on the hill for the amazing views!

"Clifton Hills of Kelmscott ( east Albany Highway) is The best Gem"

Kelmscott is devided by Albany Highway into 2 parts, the one on the west of the highway is called also Clifton Hills which continues till Roleystone. This place is awesome, we bought a house lately there, aquiet and served. There is a school and market near the highway, in some areas the city can be seen as it is only 29 I'm away. There are a couple of parks, both are safe and quiet. I love the place and highly recommend it. Watch this video.

"Lock your doors"

Lived in Kelmscott and it has a really bad dwelling burglary rate, We were really depressed as it happened twice within two years.

You can get a really big block for the price and there is the Armadale line but there is unfortunately a lot of nutters in Kelmy and surrounding suburbs.

We lived near where the new Aldi is but on the Kelmscott side of Westfield rd.

I think there are better areas for the price.

"Under-rated Gem"

I am an extremely cautious and selective buyer - I searched daily for 9 months in every nook and cranny of Perth - literally almost every suburb and I concluded that Kelmscott East (Clifton Hills and Brookton Valley parts) is the best value for money area in Perth, if not Australia (I've been to Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne too). Excellent services; modern hospital (2.5 km), train station handy but not too close (1.5km), 3 local supermarkets + numerous small shops and eateries (1.5 km), local fruit and veg produce, several schools close-by, plenty of parks and picnic spots, quiet streets. But above all for me is the mountain-style and valley vistas (albeat not the Himalayas or Grand Canyon - but as good as you can get in Perth.) I remember discovering the area and being surprised this was actually Perth (having lived coastal for 25 years). I've had friends visit and say the same thing "Its like another country". Been her nearly 4 years now and still think its the best part of Perth dollar for dollar, and even close to outright (excepting a few very high dollar suburbs areas like Peppi Grove). Check it out - take the "circle route" drive from Canning Mills Road, Kelmscott through Roleystone to Araluan then come back through Churchman Dam then the Elizabethan Pub, Mt Nasura and finish back at Brookton Valley, Kelmscott - best drive and views in Perth.

"Whisper Quiet Street"

Hill Street, Kelmscott is a very quiet street. There is plenty of shops in close proximity. A short drive to famous Araluen Park where you can see fabulous flower displays and have a BBQ or Picnic. You would be impressed at the peace and tranquility this street has to offer. You can even see the fire works of Perth Sky Show.

"Sister town to Armadale"

Kelmscott is a suburb is the south east of Perth CBD and is a very family orientated place to live. There are a number of pre primary, primary and secondary schools, state, catholic and private catering for students from K-12, as well as day care centres and playgroups. Medical facilities here are A1, with good medical centres and allied health professionals as well as the Armadale Kelmscott District Memorial Hospital which is a large modern hospital with state of the art equipment. This hospital has many connected services such as aged care, children’s and community services etc. There are some large shopping centres which house supermarkets, large department stores, specialty shops, boutiques and food courts. There are sporting activities close by to suit all taste with bowls, swimming, ten pin bowling, golf etc as well as playing fields for football of all codes, netball, basketball, tennis courts etc. property prices are not cheap but there are always bargain to be had with good transport to Perth CBD.
