There are much more expensive areas - but the ones I mentioned are a little younger and hipper but still very nice. Sort of like Surrey Hills or Glebe in Sydney, maybe?
If I were buying in Perth now, I'd look for an an untouched 1950s-era 3x1 quarter acre block former Homeswest property in Doubleview. Great location in a suburb that will continue to improve in value (as Homeswest sells off stock and gentrification rolls onwards). Also gives you an option to subdivide the block if you really want.
In reality, I live in the crusty, sweaty old Y-fronts of America: Houston, Texas! But we seem to have an Are You Being Served meme going in CEPM this week, so ......"third floor: ladies' underwear, going down".
