Perth as a whole may be going through a rough patch at present, but one area that’s managing to hold its own is Beckenham.Full summary

Perth as a whole may be going through a rough patch at present, but one area that’s managing to hold its own is Beckenham.

Situated roughly 12km southeast of the Perth CBD, Beckenham has excellent transport links to the city thanks to its own train station and the nearby Roe Highway.

Amenities are plentiful, including the Westfield Carousel shopping centre located in the next-door suburb of Cannington.

Unsurprisingly for Perth, the majority of Beckenham’s dwellings are houses – 90% according to the latest census – with RP Data noting that post-war, low set brick dwellings dominate:

“Many of these dwellings are likely to have renovation potential whether it be externally, internally or both. Land sizes tend to be quite large with the average land size in the suburb between 800 and 900 m2 suggesting there may be room for densification.”
