West Leederville, just 3km north-west of the Perth CBD, offers an affordable investment option very close to the amenities and employment hub of the city centre. While some of the suburb is zoned commercial, the majority is medium-density residential.

West Leederville has a reasonable level of amenity, with shops, cafes and several schools located within the suburb. However, its proximity to both prime suburb Subiaco and the CBD – both accessible via a minutes-long train journey or a short walk – means residents can access an inner city lifestyle at a much more affordable cost. The presence of two major Perth hospitals in Subiaco also provides local employment potential.

Units are very affordable when compared with neighbouring suburbs such as Leederville proper and Subiaco. There’s significant scope for catch-up growth with its more expensive neighbours – especially as freestanding properties in the suburb are subdivided to create more units.

Popular streets amongst residents include Tate Street (situated near the West Leederville station), Brighton Street and Tower Street (both situated near Southport Street).
