With demand for quality residential property in Perth on the up, this boutique development just five minutes’ drive from the CBD is sure to impress.
Offering all the perks of inner-city living but within a suburban sanctuary, Jardin is a brand-new beautifully crafted community recently launched in Perth.
With the official release garnering plenty of attention from locals, Jardin is putting the quiet suburb of Nedlands on the map for homebuyers. A quarter of the properties have already been spoken for.

Perth’s rising star
Western Australia’s housing market is having its moment in the sun after border restrictions were lifted in early 2022, explains Eleanor Creagh, senior economist at realestate.com.au.
“This year, sales volumes have kicked off much stronger and are up 13% in Western Australia year-on-year — that’s largely being driven by a 16% increase in sales volumes in Perth,” Creagh says.
With restrictions easing, interstate migration is also on the up. The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show migration to Perth is similar to migration to Brisbane, showing it’s a destination of choice for people on the move.
The shift is not surprising given the strong economy, rising commodity prices, tight labour market and Perth’s record-low rental vacancy rate.
To top it off, Perth escaped the substantial price increases experienced across the country in 2021 — particularly compared to the eastern seaboard, Creagh explains.
The PropTrack Home Price Index for April showed Perth’s median home price sitting at $520,000, with the lowest annual growth rate among capital cities. However, Nedlands is bucking this trend — the median house price in the suburb increased by 20.6% year-on-year to April to more than $2 million.
So, it will be a market to watch as Australians hunt for properties with good value and growth propositions as interest rates rise, Creagh says.
A place to call home
Nedlands, in the city’s inner west, is defined by its tranquil vibe, proximity to other blue-chip suburbs and its ability to tick all the lifestyle boxes, explains Tom House, Managing Director at House Business Group.
It’s an area that’s going through a real resurgence right now,” House says.
“Jardin is just 200m from the University of Western Australia and a few minutes from Matilda Bay, Kings Park, the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre and the Western Suburbs’ many private schools.”

The boutique Jardin development offers 32 spacious residences.
Multiple parks are dotted throughout the area. There are cafes and restaurants on your doorstep, such as the iconic Nedlands hotspot Steve’s, as well as a golf course, tennis club and a yacht club.
Plus, walking tracks in the south of the suburb that run along the banks of the gorgeous Swan River are a hit with locals.
House says the developer, Blueways Group, has a real understanding of what buyers in the Nedlands market are after. Two other projects in the suburb, Rivean and Hillway, are currently under construction with ICON appointed as builders. A third Nedlands development, Bloom, is already 60% sold and undergoing demolition works.
The essence of living
Jardin Residences is designed to deliver the best when it comes to inner-city living in Perth.
Designed by the biggest architecture practice in Australasia, Hassell Studio, the facade is a contemporary and striking form using a mix of carefully selected materials and accompanied by beautiful green landscaping.

Inside, the heart of the home is a sizeable modern kitchen with an exclusive upgrade package available to larger apartments, which includes premium natural stone benches, equipped with the latest Miele appliances and Spanish-designer feature lighting.
This flows onto living areas that open up to a large balcony using fold-away doors, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining space.
House says Jardin offers a level of class and customisation far above the norm.
“We’ve got five different colour schemes, specifications and models that people can pick from,” he adds.
“Traditionally, with off-the-plan, you see maybe two or three. But we added what we call premium upgrade design schemes and packages, which give buyers an option to upgrade things like smart home automation, feature-lighting, a Coco Republic furniture design experience as well as award-winning designer tapware and their door handles to match.”
As part of Jardin’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, the building has rooftop solar as well as energy-efficient window glazing, producing cleaner energy for a more sustainable future.

Every resident also has access to a shared gymnasium with premium equipment from Italian giants Technogym, official supplier to seven Olympic Games.
But House says what really sets them apart is their spacious house-like floor plans, which are designed with local downsizers in mind.
“We want people to know they’re not moving into a shoebox — these are expansive, luxurious apartments finished to a high standard,” House shares. “Overall, they’re about 20% larger than the traditional apartments found through that pocket.”
