Located 42km from the CBD, Alkimos has an area of around 13 square kilometres. The Indian Ocean is within walking distance and is mostly covered in native banksia scrubland. Alkimos is named after a shipwreck which ran aground nearby in the 1960’s. It is the topic of many ghost stories and strange happenings.
Alkimos is already seen to be Perth's best suburb for capital growth in 2016 - this great news for investors. The coastal suburb median house price increased over 15% across 2015 which landed it the title of best performing suburb in the metropolitan area.
Once complete, it is estimated that there will be over 50,000 people living in Alkimos with the proposed extension of Mitchell Freeway allowing for easier access to the city.
In the past 12 months, majority of houses were sold between $401,000 - $600,000. Being such a young suburb, new housing is readily available via existing new homes or through house and land packages.
26.7% of current residents are maturing couples and families. Young families and established couples/families are at 20% each.
A number of small cafes and eateries have been completed so far in the area with many more to come. This includes shopping precincts, schools and recreational facilities such as bike and hike trails.
Currently, students can attend nearby Butler Primary School and Butler College along with a few recently completed schools such as Alkimos Baptist College.
The community in Alkimos is growing quickly, with a number of sporting groups and committees are already well established.
