The Glades is set in a picturesque rural landscape at the foot of the scenic Darling Scarp, little over half an hour from the city of Perth and minutes away from Byford, recently voted one of Australia’s most family friendly towns.
It’s an enviable location within 370 hectares of countryside, offering an abundance of space and connection to the local environment, yet still with all the conveniences of modern life.
The nearby Tonkin Highway provides fast access to Perth Airport and major roads such as Roe, Leach and Great Eastern Highways. The Kwinana Freeway is fifteen minutes away, linking the region with Perth city in the north and Mandurah to the south.
Closer to home, the town of Byford is an established and welcoming community with schools, shops and medical facilities, as well as sporting and other groups. As well, it’s just a short drive to the tourist drawcard of the Serpentine Valley, with delightful cafes and restaurants, wineries and art galleries. For a touch of tranquillity, there’s the Serpentine National Park and waterfall, with plenty of picnic areas, bushwalks and gorgeous spring wildflowers.
