Top 10 Reasons To Live In East Perth

By Paul Farrelly

1)      Living by the river

East Perth is full of magnificent parks, cycle ways and riverside walking tracks along the Swan River for your morning or weekend fitness workout or bike ride from Riverside Drive, passed Claisebrook Cove and even links you to Burswood Casino and golf course.

2)      Coffee anyone?

The choice of many fantastic and vibrant local cafes and restaurants along Royal St and on the Claisebrook waterfront whether for your morning breakfast and coffee before work or a relaxing evening meal and soaking up the relaxing atmosphere down at the well renowned Royal on The Waterfront.  Also many new coffee shops and convenience stores have recently opened up at the foot of many new residential high rise developments in Adelaide Tce and Hay St so everything you need is within arm’s length.

3)      Sports Stadiums

Walking distance to the famous WACA cricket ground, Gloucester Park trotting track, NIB stadium to watch Perth Glory or The Western Force rugby team and with the projected construction of the new AFL stadium at Burswood to be completed in 2017, East Perth will become the hub to all Perth’s major sporting events similar to the layout of many of Melbourne’s sporting homes.

4 )  Lock up and Leave

Perth is the centre of many worldwide industries and therefore many employees prefer East Perth’s lock up and leave security lifestyle especially residents who frequently travel interstate, overseas or to many of our WA mining workplaces. This style of living is very popular with the Asian residents who now call Perth home after they have come from a very similar lifestyle and level of security in Singapore, Indonesia,  Hong Kong and China.

5 Close proximity to Perth CBD

Quick access to public transport, free CAT bus service constantly carrying residents to the city, Claisebrook train station located off Royal St which is only a 3 minutes train ride to either the city or Burswood casino.

6)  Low maintenance homes

East Perth housing comprises of many popular  low maintenance Terrace homes on smaller 200sqm blocks and high rise apartment complexes which include outside alfresco courtyards or balconies to utilise all year round for comfort and lifestyle.

7)  Riverside Development

The future Riverside development which has now commenced construction will provide even more of the popular waterfront high density apartment living with added vibrancy including eateries, entertainment, retail shopping and boat pens inviting people to travel up the river and stop over at East Perth. The project will attract $2 billion in investment and bring 7000 new residents into the area.

8) It’s central to everywhere

Whether you feel like heading into the vibrant Northbridge restaurant and  cafes strips or visit one of the many new wines bars just opened up in either CBD, Mt Lawley or Victoria Park you will live only moments from all the action and with very little travel time unlike residents living in the Northern or Southern suburbs.

9)  Perth Waterfront Development

Perth’s Waterfront named Elizabeth Quay is a $2.6 billion project that will return the city’s focus to the iconic Swan River and re energise the waterfront precinct and enhance Perth’s reputation as one of the most liveable cities in the world. The project will cover nearly 10 hectares of prime riverfront land between Barrack and William Streets in the heart of the city. It will provide new inner city residential options as well as much needed short stay and hotel accommodation and many retain and performing arts facilities which will connect the city to the Riverfront.

10) Enjoy the views

Many people would one day dream to live in a property with a lovely water view and that is why East Perth is such a popular place to live while there are many lifestyle options. You can choose to live in a high rise apartment in Terrace Rd , Adelaide Terrace or Royal St with stunning water views or maybe make the transition to one of East Perth’s quality built Terrace homes in the Claisebrook Cove which many people feel has a very Mediterranean feel.  The choice is yours.
