Selling points: Peppermint Grove is a niche area between the ocean and the river in Perth’s western suburbs. Adjacent to Cottesloe and Mosman Park, its biggest draw card is its proximity to some of Perth’s finest schools, including Presbyterian Ladies College, Iona Presentation College, Methodist Ladies’ College and Christ Church Grammar School. 

Peppermint Grove is an affluent area, boasting a median sales price of almost $2,400,000.  The median rent (Jan-Mar 2012) was $1348.00, well above Perth’s median rental price of $425.00.

Most sought after properties: 4 bedroom 2 bathroom houses with a yard – best suited to families

Most common properties: Large high end luxury homes – approximately a quarter of the homes are tenant-occupied.

Top amenities: Schools, tree lined streets, walking distance to the river and to Cottesloe beach.  We are only a few hundred metres from Cottesloe Train Station which takes you straight into the city, and buses service Stirling Highway. 

Local industry and businesses: Private schools, families.  With a population of approximately 1500, over one third of these residents are children.

Recent changes: Many of the Council’s strategies and initiatives are specifically directed at helping to preserve, maintain and enhance the ambience of Peppermint Grove.  As a result, there has not been a lot in the way of major developments.

Best streets: In such a small pocket, all streets are sought after, and all areas of the suburb are within walking distance to schools, the river and shopping/cafes.  As you move east, away from  Stirling Highway and towards the river, it does become quieter and less busy.

Public transport: Excellent.  Located on Stirling Highway, which is a main artery to the city and to Fremantle, you have your choice of train or bus transport at regular intervals throughout the day.
