We’ve all got our own family lifestyles in Perth. Some are the “Boats ‘n Boogie Boards” type, others are the “Soccer on Saturdays” type. Then there’s the “Foodie” families that love hitting the town, and of course, the “Entertainers” that love having people around.
However your family likes to live, we’ve got just your type of home at The Heights Kardinya. Known as the “Type E
” floor plan, this premium design in a prime location close to all the action is everything you never knew you wanted.
The home life
Let’s start with the design itself. There are 187 square metres of space spread out across two storeys, dishing up plenty of room for the family to spread out and grow up. Downstairs you’ve got a double garage with handy storage to house all your surfboards, bikes or other adventurous gear. Inside you’re greeted by an oh-so-liveable entertainment quadrangle, bringing together a modern galley kitchen, with open plan dining and living spaces wrapped around a cool alfresco sure to get a workout during those balmy evenings when the Freo Doctor rolls in.
With the master suite tucked away downstairs, Type-E’s
family functionality comes to the fore. Take the stairs to the second level where the kids can make a ruckus till their hearts’ content. With three bedrooms designed around a central activity space and bathroom, this clever family hub allows you to live in complete home harmony over the years.
The beach life
It’d be tempting to laze around your premium home all day long if it wasn’t for your prime location within easy reach of some awesome beaches. South Beach is about ten minute’s drive west, renowned as a go-to spot for watching Freo’s world famous sunsets. Locals love hanging at this beautiful white sandy beach surrounded by grassy parklands, a coastal bike trail, play park, central café and ample car parking. Our other favourite is Coogee Beach, just down the coast. Partly sheltered by a string of offshore reefs, expect family friendly waves usually no more than a metre high. The kids will love jumping off the jetty and swimming to the platform, with lifeguards keeping an eye on the action. Local’s tip: make sure you take advantage of the barbecues in the grassed area.
The river life
Want to get out and about on the Swan River? Deepwater Point Reserve Boat Ramp is just 13 minutes drive north-east, a picturesque river edge picnic area where you can launch your boat or kayak and fish off the iconic jetty. For families who like getting in touch with nature, head over to the Alfred Cove Nature Reserve, a special habitat for migrating waterbirds in the Swan Estuary Marine Park. The kids will love bird-watching from the platforms, where you can get a rare insight into our unique river biodiversity. Got time for a quick round? The Point Walter Golf Club is just moments away offering a stunning river location.
The foodie life
After your swim at South Beach, swing by South Fremantle to lap up its trendy shops, friendly locals and multi cultural cuisine. Then venture deeper into the heart of Freo, where charming old buildings, chilled vibes and uber cool cafes come together to create a seriously unique foodie mecca. Our pick of the bunch is Bread in Common, where you can get rustic baked bread and share plates in a delightfully moody warehouse setting.
The Heights really does have the perfect lifestyle for all types of families. And with architecturally designed turnkey house and land packages from $495,000, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to be part of the action.
