"Families welcome - if you can afford to buy in"

This great suburb is sandwiched between Applecross and Mt Pleasant. Although it doesn't have the kudos of those areas, it has the same amenities. Suitable for families - if you can afford to buy in. There are excellent primary schools and a great public high school - Applecross. If you are into private schooling, there are bus services that can get you to most in the area - Wesley, Penhros, Santa Maria etc. If you love walking your pooch, Shirley Strickland oval is great, plus you can wander down to the river or Wireless Hill...there are plenty of options. The streets are quiet and leafy and Melville is starting to sink the powerlines so soon it will be even leafier! It is quiet though with not many pubs and no nightclubs - it is close enough to Perth and Freo so you can get your nightlife high in those areas. A really nice place to live but unfortunately houses are not cheap so if you can get in good luck.

"Lovely Family Homes"

Ardross was first developed in the post-WW2 era, and pleasant homes on large blocks were built. Over the years, the original families have moved on and many of the original homes, some with water views of the Swan River, have been replaced with large, modern, personality-less buildings. Located conveniently between Applecross (great speciality shops, cafes, restaurants) and Garden City (shopping megamall, supermarkets, movies), it is still a perfect family suburb, albeit with a hefty price tag.
