OF THE “BRANKSOME STRIP”
NOW FR $2.795M
City Beach is the closest beachfront to the heart of Perth City. So central, yet so spacious and private, it is cocooned against its vast 5Km long shoreline by the wide green expanses of Bold Park bush reserve, The Wembley Golf Course, The Cottesloe Golf Course and the Swanbourne Army Reserve.
Within City Beach there are around 2200 homes. Of those 2200, around 250 are on the ocean side of the highway in highly sought after South City Beach. Running along the waterfront in “South City” there are a limited 28 homes on the oceanside of Branksome Gdns – front row properties with gates opening onto a network of oceanfront parks and coastal dune systems. These are perhaps the most sought after 28 homes in the suburb. Of those 28, everyone wishes to be at the far northern end, where they are mere footsteps to the spectacular City Beach Waterfront cafe strip. The Hamptons, Odyssea, Clancys et al overlooking the iconic and timeless beachfront architecture of the City Beach Surf Club, City Beach Groyne, Groyne Tower, and the iconic South City Kiosk by Tony Brand. At this far northern end, you and the kids can swim in patrolled areas, surf at the groyne where the best sandbanks are, grab a meal or a drink at a moments notice – all only footsteps away.
The original dwelling is a modest but functional home probably dating back to the 1930s-1940s. It is a simple home by the sea. Doors with porthole windows, 3/4 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Jarrah boards, jarrah sash windows, brick fireplace and modernised kitchen in white. There is a single garage, a garden shed and an old chook run in the back garden. It was recently rented at around $600 per week.
The original landholding looks to have been levelled and cut at some stage in history on its Northern side, so those wishing to redevelop may want to look into where the original “natural ground” may have been when assessing the allowable heights of a future build.
This property is one of the very largest landholdings on “The Strip”. Where many of the 28 lots are in the 600sqms, this is a generous 840sqm. It is also one of the last undeveloped sites on “the strip” and is potentially your only ever opportunity to get in along this magnificent stretch of blue-chip and lifestyle rich real estate at the ground level. It is at the strip’s far northern end. It even has a “secret” children’s playground over its back fence which has no street frontage and is known only to the locals! It is a truly unique and one of a kind, once in a lifetime opportunity!Contact Agent

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
