Eden Hill: Old suburb provides affordability

Tuesday, 5th Apr 2016

Eden HillThis suburb was first developed nearly a century ago and provides an affordable option for property buyers.

Eden Hill is located 11 kilometres north-east of the Perth CBD and comprises about 3,500 residents.

It’s bounded by Morley Drive East to the north, Walter Road East to the south, Wick Street to the west and Lord Street to the east.

The housing stock in the area dates back to the 1920s when the first significant residential development occurred.

However, with the suburb being rezoned in recent years, more infill development has since occurred.

The stock comprises approximately 88% stand-alone houses, 7% duplexes, villas and townhouses and 5% flats, units and apartments.

As well as its proximity to the CBD, the suburb’s main drawcard is its relative affordability.

With a median house price of $477,500, according to REIWA, the suburb sits below Perth’s median price.

This is reflected in the suburb’s demographics with about 14% of resident identifying as professionals, compared to the state average of about 20%.

About 18.5% of residents also identify as technicians and trades workers (WA 16.7%) and 17.9% as clerical and administrative (WA 14.7%).

The Eden Hill Primary School is located within the suburb and Hampton Senior High School is directly to the west.

Morley Galleria Shopping Centre is also 4km to the west and the Bassendean Shopping Centre is 2km to the south.

Its closest train stations are Bassendean and Success Hill, also located about 2km to the south.
