The character homes of the “Plympton Ward” are very much sort after. When they appear for sale they are snapped up by eager buyers looking to move in close to George St and the cafés/restaurants.
Equally properties with views to the Indian Ocean and looking up and down the Swan river don’t last long on the market either.

There is always something to do or somewhere to go in East Freo. If your not soaking up the atmosphere of George St, maybe a nice meal and drink down at the Left Bank Pub will suit you better.
After your meal you can stroll along the rivers edge all the way to Point Walter if you so desire. Or for the sportier people, you can complete a workout on the outdoor fitness equipment located on the rivers edge – if working out whilst watching the boats cruise by doesn’t make the time fly nothing will.
