"Butler - a suburb where everybody knows everybody, but riddled with crime."
I first moved to Butler from Currambine about 16 years ago. At the start, it was wonderful area, we are situated near the Butler Primary School. The area was a safe place, full of young families and everybody seemed wonderful. But it wasn't until neighbours moved out, rented out their properties, that we realised this was coming to an end.
Butler is sadly riddled with crime and aggressive/rude people. Countless times I have been abused by teenagers AND adults who seem to think they deserve a right to say stuff to me, about me. Sadly, Butler College didn't make it any better, more worse if you ask me personally. Teenage fights often occur here and it can get pretty worrying living nearby.
As for our street, we've had it all. Fires, police chases (on foot and vehicles), break-ins, fights and burnouts. One of the fights even made it onto the news. Our street is covered in skid marks where people fly around corners and do doughnuts at intersections. Not only that but our street intersects with a laneway, also riddled with more crime, garage doors, fences and bins are frequently targeted by graffiti attacks. Not only is the destruction clear, neighbours are horrible. We've had at least 4 or 5 drug dealers on the street, and even a convicted murderer, who of which followed me down my street until he disappeared, making remarks towards me about a Homeswest home that burnt down on our street earlier that year.
All in all, I can say is that some areas are nice, but others are not just bad, but horrible to live in. The area's I'd avoid would definitely be the south of Butler, full of riff-raff. Western Butler's got an ugly side too, as well as Eastern Butler. North Butler however seems to be alright, though I haven't spent enough time up there to really know.
Compared to private homes, there really isn't that many Homeswest homes, though some of them aren't that bad. I personally know a few families that live in Homeswest homes that have been really friendly. But then we've had disgusting people too. Currently, we have four Homeswest homes on our street. The first one is home to a believed prostitute who seems to have a different man every night. The second a young, friendly family who first moved in and brough violence and riff-raff, but have since turned over a new leaf and proven themselves as kind people. The third (which was the one that burnt down, that's right! Good one state-government, instead of knocking it down, you "fixed" it and put another person in there), an elderly lady, and then the forth is a young group of men who live there that seem to have zero care about what their house looks like.
If anybody wants any help or has any more questions, comment down below and I'll answer them for you. I'm only saying this as I believe I've seen a person on here asking about where the Homeswest Homes. Anyway, thank you for reading, and remember, North Butler is nice, every other part of Butler - not nice!
"Good or Bad... Hard to Say!"
Pendleton Crescent is an okay street of Butler, Western Australia.
While quiet by midday, it does certainly get very busy during school time as school is literally down the street on Tollesbury Avenue. Unfortunately, not many good neighbours on the street either. Often abuse being yelled on the street, burn outs, fires, burglaries & even speeding cars! A lot of blind corners too so not so safe for driving on. A lot of HomesWest on the street too...
I have to say though, it is also sometimes quiet.
