Amazing to browse older post and notice how much a suburb has evolved!
- Yes Seville Grove is the place to be.
Lovely quite location, family friendly especially the cul de sac & estates, loads of shops & malls to choose, resale values sky-rocketing, good neighbours. The public transport will get to be more frequent shortly as well. Hills just a 15 mins drive away, along with vineries. Champion lake, just one of the new swanky estates coming up.
Just a drive will showcase how this suburb is growing fine & at a quick pace! Seems like everyone wants a part of this plot. Good on the lucky ones, who REALLY VISIT and look for themselves what they might have missed if they house-shopped elsewhere.
Not great... I used to live in the area but everyone and I mean everyone just wants to get out. It gets the spill over from the high Armadale crime rate resulting in a lot of break ins. Expect your car or house to be broken into within a year. We were robbed constantly at home, on the train, in the car, out walking the dog. There is a high proportion of unemployed living in the area and because of its age it just seems to always be sliding down a hill in terms the capacity of the schools education system and aging public services. On the other hand the armadale area supports its own garbage dump! one of only three in the metro area that is class 2 and supports the dumping of toxic and hazardous waste and putrescible waste... If you want a good place, rent a unit in Pepperment grove, Nedlands or Dalkeith. Your children will have the best public education available along with the best chance of getting degrees in medicine, law and engineering. Sure you'll never own a home but your children will and the contacts they make in that area will serve them for life. I'm in nedlands now, with 3 children of my own and I have never told them I'm from that area that's how ashamed I am to have lived there. I was the only one in a class of 40 to get into university from that area... not good odds and as soon as I got a job I was out of there. Everyone I know from there has either turned into a drug addict, a plumber, or pumps out babies to get the baby bonus... it sounds harsh but its true hope this helps.
