There are so many things to consider when looking to purchase your first or next home and it might all feel a little overwhelming at times, so we’re here to lay out a simple – and attractive – new option that offers the best of many worlds.
Located 16km east of the city, Bushmead is a suburb and estate that has very quickly become one of Perth’s most environmentally friendly, forward-thinking communities. Previously an old rifle range, the estate has been shaped by the nature that surrounds it.
The newest section, Bushmead South, comes off Ridge Hill Road and is substantially elevated – offering residents and visitors stunning views of Perth city, along with views of the 185 hectares of natural retained bushland.
If you’re in the market for a move to the hills, read on below as to why Bushmead might be right fit for you:
It seems like a no-brainer really – spending your life surrounded by natural bushland rather than the hustle and bustle of the city? Bushmead is bordered by 185 hectares of retained natural bushland, meaning you’re right in the middle of spectacular natural bushwalks, not to mention the array of parks and public open spaces to enjoy. With playgrounds, picnic areas, basketball courts, enclosed dog parks for your furry kids and more, you’ve really got no excuse to get out and enjoy the fresh hills air.
You’re already off to a great start living in an area surrounded by natural bushland, and Bushmead is an estate that takes pride in developing strong community bonds. Residents can join in the regular community gatherings, Saturday parkruns and a number of resident-led initiatives.
Location, Location, Location
Being only 16km from the city is pretty handy, but you might not even need it with Bushmead’s proximity to the busy town centres of Midland and historic Guildford, offering all the shopping centres, restaurants, cafes and medical services you need. You’re just a short trip from the natural beauty of Helena Valley, which along with Maida Vale also has a primary school if you’ve got a young family in tow (or on the way)!
Bushmead proudly holds a unique Urban Development Institution of Australia 5-Leaf EnviroDevelopment Accreditation, recognising exceptional sustainability outcomes. Their commitments to ensuring the estate’s natural environment – along with your future wellbeing – remains unspoilt can be read about here, where you can also learn about their offer of free 3000L water tanks with new homes built in Bushmead!
