Run fast for this huge, level north-east facing 994sqm corner site in one of the very best pockets of the suburb, with delightfully chic late 60’s home teeming with all-original-architectural-cool.

Features huge picture windows from every room, seamlessly blending lush tropical inspired external gardens with your internal living experience. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a backyard studio and separate living areas, as well as a huge 4 car carport under the main roof, which would lend itself conveniently to a large and cost-efficient extension of the dwelling.

The home is set towards the southern boundary, such that it has a huge sundrenched yard down its northern side. There is a large 1960’s below ground pool of a size and scale that you just don’t see these days. Adjacent is a second toddlers pool with a depth which is safe for kids.

A solid brick perimeter wall (no longer allowable under current building guidelines) creates a private walled compound around the property such that the home can both face and embrace the warm winter sunshine, whilst at the same time being amazingly private from the street.

The verge trees are mature and add to the extreme sense of isolation and privacy that is felt from within the walled perimeter of this property.

The landholding itself is where all the value is. Elevated up above the two streets to which it has frontage (about 2m above Ikara and 1m above Marimba), it offers you great street presence for a new redevelopment. On a corner site, it offers you the flexibility of choosing your primary and secondary street frontages.

The lot has the perfect orientation for protection from our coastline’s prevailing summer and winter south westerlies and for soaking up winter sunshine. Extremely large and perfectly level it would lend itself amazingly to a sprawling, single level, solar passive, north facing home. With an aging demographic, such dwellings are not only far more affordable and quicker to build, but also have a rapidly growing market come resale.

On the amazingly long 4.5km coastline of City Beach, this home is in the best location, close to the heart of all the action. The main beachfront is directly down the hill due west, where you can stroll to the patrolled beaches of the City Beach Groyne and the Cafes on the all new City Beach Waterfront.

The home is seconds stroll from the City Beach Primary School, the Japanese School and the International School. It is also super convenient to the Bold Park walk trails and seasonal wildflowers. It is an easy walk to catch a show at The Quarry Amphitheatre and buyers with teenage kids will love the easy bike ride down the hill to all of the Perry Lakes state sporting infrastructure; athletics, basketball, rugby, skate park, Challenge Stadium. Down the hill in the opposite direction is the Surf Clubs, the surf and the beach…. Just an idyllic life!

Whether you are chasing a super level sun-drenched redevelopment site or an uber-cool period home brimming with potential at land value entry point… you are sure to find something you like here.

Suburb Profile

Discover 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.
