One of Perth’s hidden gems, Kensington has become popular in recent years with families, professionals and singles who love its charming village feel, abundant green spaces and convenient location so close to the CBD. A boutique suburb, full of character houses on larger blocks of land, Kensington is one of Perth’s best value inner-city areas, offering an appealing and slightly more affordable option than the neighbouring South Perth, which shares its postcode.
Only 3km to Perth’s CBD, Kensington is small enough to maintain a community feel. Housing here is evolving, with some homes being redeveloped and many others being restored to their former glory, with the most sought-after pockets offering stunning views across the Swan River of the Perth CBD skyline. There’s plenty of local parks, including Kensington Bushland Reserve where locals can enjoy and array of local flora and fauna, and while there are some local shops, most residents make the short trip to nearby Victoria Park for their shopping or visit Vic Park strip, a popular spot for cafes and restaurants.
Kensington’s convenient location is only 13km to Perth airport and an easy commute to universities. Kensington Public School is a favourite among local kids, and there’s also excellent private schools nearby such as Penrhos and Wesley College. With all of these assets, and the beaches of Fremantle only a short drive away, it’s no surprise that Kensington has become so popular with buyers looking for character, convenience and relaxed modern living close to the centre of the city.
