The Glades, Byford, Perth, Land for Sale, House & Land, Hilbert, Armadale, LWP

Designed to offer a connected and healthy lifestyle for around 10,000 people, The Glades at Byford has the best of modern village living in a beautiful natural setting - right here, right now.

Our five intimate precincts, Williams Place, Brickwood Chase, Woodland Grove, Coral Gardens and Icaria, are all within a stroll of the village centre, shops, cafes and schools, and Lake Allambee, a popular attraction for locals and visitors.

Set among 370 hectares of countryside, The Glades is named for the twin corridors of parkland at the heart of the development and offers a natural lifestyle in an urban setting. We’ve left more than 14% of the area as public open space with natural pathways and cycle routes making it easy to connect with everywhere in the estate and to nearby Byford. 

The Glades is little over half an hour from the city of Perth, and links to other major centres through the Tonkin Highway, just five minutes away, and the Kwinana Freeway, fifteen minutes away.

By putting in place everything people need to be connected to nature, to each other and to the wider metropolitan area, LWP is building healthy and sustainable communities that will be strong and vibrant for generations to come.

Community and Lifestyle

LWP’s central mission is to create the best environment possible for people to Live, Work and Play. We know our innovative approach to building communities is working because our residents tell us they love it… 

"My kids feel free and safe to do what kids are meant to do – play with other kids in the streets. We love seeing this". (The Glades Survey response).

To build connected and sustainable communities, we invest in neighbourhood friendly infrastructure such as parks, playgrounds, walk trails and a village centre. We value public art, from a three-leaf entry statement at Doley Road, to the windmill sculpture moving gently in the breeze on Warrington Road. 

Both sculptures represent an aspect of the heritage of the area, and are part of a longer term plan to include community-created art in more public open spaces, helping to create a sense of belonging, continuity and community pride.

We also invest in people and at the start of a development we create a Community Planning Team, with local residents and Shire representatives, and employ a Community Development Officer. This way we can see what services and facilities will be valued and used by the people who live at The Glades.

Among our initiatives we have a community development fund supporting for local groups. 




It’s important to us that our communities are connected but also sustainable. We want them to be here for future generations to enjoy as well.

That’s why LWP is committed to measures that will protect and preserve the environment – an approach that has been recognised with awards for environmental excellence. Here are some of the ways we have shown our commitment:

  • More than 85% of trees have been retained
  • More than 85% of our homesites are east/west aligned (best for solar passive homes)
  • All home buyers get a waterwise garden landscape package
  • Rehabilitation of degraded creeks
  • Creating drainage basins designed to look like wetlands
  • Planting 10,000 native trees to rehabilitate Cardup Brook

Extensive walk and bike trails as well as an abundance of public open space at The Glades means that people are encouraged to live a healthy and connected life, building their own neighbourhood and a strong, vibrant community.

The Precincts - What's in a Name?

Eventually The Glades will be home to around ten thousand people, yet we know it will still have the feel of a connected community because we designed it that way.

At LWP our priority is to nurture a return to neighbourhood living by creating intimate precincts within our master planned communities. So The Glades is made up of five precincts where all 3,500 homesites are within easy walking distance of the beautiful Lake Allambee at the heart of the village centre. They are neighbourhoods where walking and enjoying an outdoor life is encouraged by an abundance of landscaped and natural parkland, as well as tree-lined streets with wide verges and distinct pathways.

Each of the precincts has its own unique character, and with homesites ranging from 335sqm cottage lots to 700sqm lifestyle lots, there’s something to suit every budget and lifestyle.

Woodland Grove

Woodland Grove is the central precinct, close to all schools, shops and other amenities planned for The Glades but also close to nature, set between two glades of public open space with a natural creek and stunning streets lined with mature jacaranda trees. There’s also an Anzac Memorial Park paying homage to our servicemen and women, including Byford local Cyril Woodland whose service in World War One is honoured in the name of the precinct.


Icaria is on the southern side of The Glades, and is named after a small Greek Island where most people live longer than average, and a third of residents make it to ninety or older. They benefit from the island’s clean air and an active lifestyle, and we’ve designed Icaria at The Glades around the same principles. Here you’ll have easy access to walk trails and fitness tracks, complete with integrated gym equipment, as well as an abundance of public open spaces and parklands. 

Coral Gardens

Coral Gardens the dress circle precinct, a secluded yet easily accessible inner sanctum within The Glades where you’ll have everything on your doorstep and still enjoy the tranquillity of living with nature. This garden precinct already feels like an older, established suburb partly because of vibrant, mature coral trees that give the area its name.

William's Place

William's Place is named after William Percival ‘Percy’ Nairn, a farmer from the area who was wounded in battle in 1918 and returned home to later build ‘Percy’s Place’ in the hills around Byford.

Brickwood Chase

Brickwood Chase is located adjacent to Brickwood Reserve: the most extensive area of Marri and Kingie woodland in the Perth metropolitan area. Brickwood Reserve is home to rare wetland ecosystems and stands of rare Salmon White Gum.

The Glades is a touch of the countryside that you can call home yet still be just over half an hour from Perth CBD and a short distance from two major road networks that give easy access to Perth Airport and other centres in the metropolitan north, west and south.
