Booming Byford Brings Estates to a Near Sell-Out
1 August 2022
The booming WA suburb of Byford is proving hot property, with strong demand for homes bringing two long-standing estates from national developer Cedar Woods close to sell out.
With a 9.6% annual growth rate recorded in the suburb, The Brook at Byford and Byford on the Scarp are now both 90% sold, together selling more than 700 lots upon completion and rapidly making its way through the final stages of land.
Both developments have proven attractive to first home buyers, who comprise more than 50% of customers in The Brook at Byford alone. Since it launched in 2014, the estate’s affordability, open spaces and walkability to the Byford Town Centre have been key drivers for the purchasers.
Byford on the Scarp is currently the suburb’s most established community, boasting the kind of benefits that come with time, with a flourishing natural environment, elevated lots perfectly positioned on the escarpment and an established residents’ association.
Strong community connection has proven attractive for buyers, strengthened by Cedar Woods’ annual Community Grants program which has provided financial backing to over 30 local organisations, such as the Mundijong Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, Riding for the Disabled Oakford and the Byford Community Kindergarten.
The Brook at Byford’s newest resident, Kirstie Greatwood, is one of many who is excited to enter the booming suburb, enjoying the thriving community and beautiful natural landscape she is now calling home.
“When I first checked out the area, the two things that stood out to me were the beautiful parks and surrounding bushland. I've always wanted to live in Perth's south-east hills but it was hard finding anything affordable until I was told about The Brook,” Ms Greatwood said.
“The quiet, peaceful neighbourhood and friendly community has made me feel super happy about my decision to buy here.”
Cedar Woods has also been committed to retaining and acknowledging historical connections in the local area so that residents can connect to the unique beauty and rich history of Byford. Public art and open spaces within each estate pay tribute to Byford’s past, such as the pre-existing Byford Naval Armament Depot and Cardup Brickworks which shine through the iconic Pavilion Park design.
Cedar Woods WA State Manager Ben Rosser said he was delighted to be a part of the closing chapter for the two projects.
“Byford has proven to be an incredibly attractive suburb for buyers, particularly with the expansion of the Byford Town Centre and planned future rail works,” Mr Rosser said.
“Having two communities situated in the heart of Byford has meant that we could always provide a suitable home option for a wide range of buyers,”
“This has been an extremely successful chapter for Cedar Woods, and we’re looking forward to welcoming our final residents to their new homes.”
Final lots at The Brook at Byford start from $161,000* for 300sqm to 450sqm. Byford on the Scarp’s last remaining blocks are from 480sqm-608sqm, starting at $239,000*.
