South City Beach is wider Perth City’s most exclusive beachfront enclave. A small coastal village of some 250 homes nestled in the dunes, ocean side of West Coast Highway and cocooned against the shoreline by the Swanbourne army reserve, Cottesloe Golf Course, Bold Park Bushlands and the iconic beachfront City beach football ovals, which are the finish line of the City to Surf. There is finite property here. The closest and most central beach to the heart of Perth City and the St. Georges Terrace engine room of the state’s economy. Of the 250 homes here, there are only 26 homes oceanside of Branksome Gardens with rear gates directly onto the dunes. Most are now redeveloped with luxury new residences. Gaze out to the horizon and be forever in touch with the many moods of the day. Fit in a morning swim before your first appointment even when you are running late. Catch up with friends at the beachfront cafes for a meal or a drink. Walk your dog along the long romantic untouched shoreline or stroll through the springtime wildflower wonderland in Bold Park A-class bush reserve.

Perched on the top of one of the highest dunes along the South City Beach waterfront, this near new luxury built Oswald Homes has direct access to the beachfront dunes at their far northern end from the corner of its block. With a “secret walkway” down its southern boundary, this home borders one of the most secluded of all of City Beach’s children’s playgrounds. With no street frontage and bordered only by the surrounding 8 homes, this gorgeous little ocean front park nestled in the dunes is like having your own extended private gardens.

Let your line of sight follow the bike path as it meanders over the dunes directly towards Rottnest in the ocean beyond. Take in the sweeping horizon towards the City Beach Groyne fringed with Norfolk Pines. The sunsets here are truly magical. Additionally, with a north-west facing rear which is quite unusual for this location, the home remains flooded with warm, natural sunshine throughout the winter months.


One storey higher than the neighbours in every direction, this ocean front home has a magnificent design with excellent family separation. Gaze out across the coastal dunes or ocean from all living and entertaining spaces and pool. This luxurious contemporary residence, at the groyne and café end of South City Beach employs rich warm use of limestone and natural timbers to create an ambient and atmospheric home.

The floorplan provides fantastic family separation with all kid’s bedroom and kids living area on the one level flowing out onto pool, lawns and gardens. The mastersuite is on the top floor with the main family living areas and kitchen enjoying wonderful “reach out and touch” ocean views.

There is an office at first floor front the entrance with its own access for those who wish to work from home and greet clients without interrupting family life, as well as a subterranean wine cellar, bike store and garage on the ground floor. All levels are serviced conveniently by an elevator.

Taking the place of an old beach house, which once stood proudly atop a steep little sand dune in the same location, this home was built to maximise the available height of this amazing little location. The dune is no longer evident as the current home has enveloped it, but the height of the home certainly is.

Over your back fence is a “secret” council-maintained children’s playground which borders the 8 immediate homes and has no street frontage – it’s like an extension of your own backyard.

Towering above neighbouring properties on all sides and utilising an “upside-down” design so that kitchen, living and alfresco/barbeque entertaining are on the top floor, enables the home to completely maximise the available views from the areas that count.

The home was designed to cater for all of the seasons in your life. The minor bedrooms, guest wing and children’s living area are all on the middle floor of the house. Amazing features such as kids’ bedrooms the size of lounge rooms are unsurpassed in the marketplace, and offer incredible functionality for families, offering each of your kids their own contained living zone in which they have room for a desk, a lounge and for friends to stay the night. The master suite, kitchen and main living are contained apartment-style on the top floor and can be accessed by the elevator directly from the garage in the basement level.

This enables the home to function for your large family in the years of your life when the kids are with you. At the same time the design ideally insulates you for the future, once you are just a couple again! Once the kids grow up and leave home, you can “warehouse” the second level for when guests visit and live a “penthouse apartment lifestyle” on the top floor, which you can access quickly in the elevator from the basement garage with the shopping.

*Families with very young children can use the guest suite as a master bedroom for the years that they wish to sleep on the same level as the kids
