RICHARD SZKLARZ DOES PALM SPRINGS IN THE “DUNE SIDE” VILLAGE BY THE SOUTH CITY BEACH WATERFRONT
Perth City’s ultimate coastal lifestyle…on the highly sought after “Oceanside of Branksome” in the South City “Groyne and Café Precinct”, you are not ever likely to find yourself a better coastal lifestyle location… a whisper quiet, no through-traffic, community focused street, only a heartbeat from the action.
Architect designed by Richard Szklarz, this as-new, single level home with pool, footsteps from the beach track channels a classic Californian mid-century Palm Springs vibe. Think: Polished concrete floors, marine grade stainless steel counter tops, moody dark timber joinery, plantation shutters refracting light indoors, a below ground pool, all flooded with warm northern sunshine…crisp, contemporary, coastal and cool.
Swim every morning of your life at a heartbeat’s notice in the rejuvenating waters of the Indian Ocean…the beach track is literally footsteps from your front gate. Catch up with good friends regularly at the bustling café and restaurant scene along the all new City Beach Waterfront, metres from your front door. Warm yourself in winter by the glowing embers of the traditional slow combustion log fire. Throw pool parties in the summer in the classic backyard pool, which is bluer than the Californian sky! Bring up your family fit, healthy, active, socially connected and in-touch daily with the many moods of the ocean, and immersed in outdoor lifestyle pursuits. Once the kids leave home, continue your retirement years in the same fashion; involved, engaged and living the good life by the sea.
Only a handful of houses back from the oceanfront dunes in the highly sought after enclave of South City Beach (groyne and cafe end), where a limited number of some 250 property owners enjoy the amazing lifestyle, living in one of Perth’s only precincts where you can live ocean side of West Coast Highway. These select few homes are sandwiched against the shoreline by the vast acreage of Bold Park Bushlands, Cottesloe Golf Course, Swanbourne Army Reserve and the green fields of the iconic City Beach Football Ovals. This tightly held pocket represents only around 10% of the housing stock in the suburb of City Beach, and as such is the most sought after precinct in the most central beachside suburb to the heart of Perth City.
Within South City Beach, people tend to gravitate towards the northern end where all of the cafes, infrastructure, patrolled swimming and other lifestyle facilities are within seconds walk. Within the northern precinct they tend to want to be ocean side of the ridge. Ocean side of the ridge, they tend to want to be ocean side of Branksome. Within South City Beach, at the northern end, oceanside of the ridge, Oceanside of Branksome…there are very few properties! This property is within the 10% of the 10%! This is rare earth.
An array of new cafes and iconic architecture now fringe the beachfront and surely but steadily are bringing South City to the attention of a universe of believers who were previously unaware of this glorious precinct’s existence. South City quite clearly promises you the most enjoyable and rewarding of futures whether you judge such in a lifestyle or an investment /financial sense. Get in now while you still can!
Life is good here…Welcome to South City Beach.

The juxtaposition of being the most central and closest beachside suburb to the heart of Perth City, yet abundant in nature, greenery and expansive wide open spaces is at the core of the allure of City Beach. Almost completely surrounded by a green belt, it is cocooned by an amazing natural buffer of Swanbourne Army Reserve, Cottesloe Golf Club, Bold Park/Perry Lakes/Reabold Hill, The Wembley Golf Course, the sparkling Indian Ocean and internally interwoven by a network of parks many of which meander all the way from one end of the suburb to the other without even crossing a road. City Beach is a suburb like nowhere else.Suburb Profile
