Why Mosman Park Real Estate Market is a magnet for Perth residents with good heels
If you want an overview of why Mosman Park attracts so many high-altitude flights to Perth, slide your walking shoes and head out onto the footpath and bike path that hugs the Swan River and connects Peppermint Grove with Fremantle in the north.
Mosman Park is not only a favorite with boaters who have access to many piers, but also those looking for sand and surf. The suburb crosses Stirling Road and claims to be one of the city's favorite dog-friendly beaches.
"Lying between the Swan River and the Indian Ocean, it gets the best of both," says Jody Fewster of Ray White Cottesloe Mosman Park. "You are within walking distance of Leighton and South Cottesloe beaches, water works on the river and fun parks for the kids."
Neighboring suburbs include the girls' schools at Iona Presentation College and St Hilda's Anglicans, and Christ Church Commonwealth, Scotch College, Presbyterian Ladies' College and Methodist Ladies' College.
Technology entrepreneur Damian Cook and his wife Melissa, founder of the luxury clothing business giroud.com.au, decided to move to Mosman Park before starting a family. Fifteen years later, they are firm fans of the region.
"Mosman Park is close to all the good schools and located by the river and the ocean at the same time - in a unique location - we love this aspect," says Damian.
“We love water and from our point of view it was probably the biggest draw. Our boat is moored along the highway and our usual pastime is now a day trip to Rottnest. "
When it comes to cooking, residents head to Glyde Street, where Fewster's favorites include the Japanese Tsunami, Sampson's Paddock, Nasi Lamek Korner for Indonesian cuisine and Rodney's bar for great snacks and live music.
Chefs often visit the freshwater café at Peppermint Grove, which extends to Keanes Point Conservation Area and the freshwater bay, and also like to jump to Fremantle, a 10-minute drive south.
