Location

Doubleview lies between Scarborough to the west and Innaloo to the east on the heavily trafficked Scarborough Beach Road. [2] It is bordered by Newborough Street to the North, Grand Promenade to the West, Williamstown Road to the South, and Huntriss Road to the East. [2] Its main roads are Sackville Terrace and Scarborough Beach Road. [2]

History

In 1895, the land was occupied by John Daniel Manning (1814-1895), an English-born dairy farmer, shortly before his death. [3] [4] In 1910, a real estate investor called Charles Edgar Stoneman purchased the land and started selling it in subdivisions. [3] He used the same street names used in the center of Perth, leading buyers to believe they were purchasing land there. [3] In 1916, a real estate developer called M. L. Connor purchased the Southern portion of Doubleview and started selling it in subdivisions. [3] After he failed to sell many, it was purchased by a team of real estate developers, Dudley and Dwyer, in 1926. [3] They were the ones who coined the name 'Doubleview.' [3] However, the land subdivisions failed to sell again. [3]

Shortly after the Second World War, the Western Australian government built houses for returning soldiers in the Northern section of Doubleview. [3] Those first houses were built in timber-frame. [3] More recently, houses have been built using brick and tile. [3] It has remained a predominantly residential area. [3]
