ARCHITECTURAL GRAVITAS | HIGH ON A SOUTH CITY BEACH HILL TOP | PERTH CITY’S MOST ICONIC COASTAL HOME
HIGH ON A SOUTH CITY BEACH HILLTOP
PERTH CITY’S MOST ICONIC COASTAL HOME
A David Hillam design of striking architectural impact, which simultaneously moves you, inspires you and gives cause for reflection. Around 1000sqm of living area, built across three levels – a curved, flowing organic concrete top floor floating in space above a transparent glass middle level which is in turn grounded by a robust, oblong concrete ground floor. Situated in South City Beach – a coastal hamlet of some 250 homes nestled in the dunes along Perth City’s most central beachfront, which is cocooned against the shoreline by a vast greenbelt of parks and reserves – the Swanbourne army reserve, Cottesloe Golf Course, Bold Park bushland, and the iconic beachfront football ovals. This large 948sqm allotment atop the northern- most of South City’s three highest hilltops (and on the closest of the three to the main beachfront, café strip, surf clubs et al. ) enjoys dual-views both west to the Indian Ocean and east to the sunrises over the virgin bushland of Bold Park. A truly special, unrivalled location. A once in a lifetime home.

Designed by David Hillam of Hillam Architects, one of Australia’s most cutting edge, avante guard practitioners in the high-end residential sector. David’s designs are extraordinarily beautiful and unique. His influences are varied and his projects are bespoke, speak for themselves and stand on their own with individual personalities. An architect of note who is continually on the move and not easily pigeonholed or definable. A huge star that has certainly risen but even the most casual observer of David’s work and the architecture scene in general would be aware that his future is trending towards exponential growth and international notoriety. Monumental things to come.
Perth City has a long flat expense of coastline comparable in length to LA. In it’s 30 or so kilometres of most central beachfront from Fremantle to Hillarys Marina, every single coastal suburb is zoned of a density allowing block sizes as small as 350sqm, apart from one….its most central beachside suburb, City Beach.
City Beach is directly due west from the Heart of Perth City. Holding a prize position that you may very well expect to be a built up urban beachfront, however in a wonderful historical planning anomaly, it is not. Perth’s most central beachfront suburb is actually the City’s least dense and most spacious, with a zoning allowing minimum block size of 800sqm. Such planning leads to large yards, quiet streets and a treelined neighbourhood full of parks, and bush reserve – all in the centre of everything – quite remarkable!
Cocooned against the shoreline by a vast greenbelt of parks and reserves – the Swanbourne army reserve, Cottesloe Golf Course, Bold Park A-Class bush reserve, Reabold Hill (Perths highest mountain) and The Wembley Golf Course, City Beach is a most unexpected find and a beach side suburb like no other.
There are around 2200 homes in City Beach, but the jewel in its crown is the small hamlet within the suburb, South City Beach. “South City” comprises a finite 250 exclusive home sites on the ocean side of West Coast Highway.
The home sits atop the northern most of the three highest hilltops in South City Beach and on the closest one of the three to the main beachfront, café strip, surf clubs et al. only footsteps away. On a large 948 sqm allotment it enjoys dual views both west to the Indian Ocean and east to the sunrises over the virgin bushland of Bold Park. A truly special, unrivalled location.

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
