21 February 2017

So you’ve found your perfect Perth home builders and are longing to get your luxury home underway, but not sure whereabouts in Perth it should be built? Here at Averna Homes, we’ve put together a list of five of the most lusted-after suburbs in Perth to whet your appetite.


Nedlands is the perfect location if you want all the affluence of the western suburbs, but you still want to be close to the CBD for work or play. Nedlands is only a five minute drive to the centre of town, so you don’t have to worry about a long commute. Not only that, it’s just a short distance to Kings Park, the beach and the Swan River. With its cool, leafy streets, an abundance of eateries and the prestigious UWA within its postcode, Nedlands is the perfect location for your custom luxury home if you’re looking to enjoy the best of both worlds.


Consider yourself more of a sun-worshipper? Not a problem. Cottesloe has all the aplomb and elegance of an established suburb while having the Indian Ocean and Perth’s most renowned beaches right on its doorstep. It’s also just a fifteen minute drive to the city. The houses in ‘Cott’ are known for their beauty and unique designs, so if you want to find inspiration while customising your own new beachside home, here’s the place to be. You’ll be showing off your very own coastal style in no time.


Further in yet still close to plenty of water, Dalkeith is situated right on the river’s edge. For the residents of this close-knit suburb, waking up to the sight of boats cruising down the Swan is a reality most of us can only dream about. Whether you fancy yourself as a bit of a sailor, or simply enjoy the idea of watching yachts sail past your windows (and who wouldn’t), building a custom home here is a no-brainer.


Applecross, another riverside suburb is bounded by Canning Highway and the Swan River. This affluent suburb boasts generous lot sizes and picturesque views of Perth city. This suburb offers a lifestyle like no other with an abundance of modern facilities nearby and just a stone throw away from the City of Fremantle.

South Perth

If you’ve been searching for an area that pretty much has it all, then look no further than South Perth. Just a short ferry ride to the CBD and with spectacular city views across the Swan River, it’s prime real estate with plenty of features to seduce you. Prestigious schools? Tick. Quiet, friendly neighbourhood largely comprising of professionals? Tick. Fantastic riverside lifestyle right on the foreshore? Tick. Heck, it’s even got a zoo. If you’re looking to build your dream home in a suburb that’s in the heart of everything, then South Perth has got you covered.

Mount Pleasant

What’s in a name? If Mount Pleasant is anything to go by, a fair bit. This quiet leafy suburb by the Swan River is very popular with families who want all the perks of quality schools coupled with a relaxed lifestyle down by the water’s edge. It has some of the best views of the city around and, if you’re a bit of a rowing buff, then this is the place you want to be.
