"Nice, convenient, clean, safe and quiet street"

I have been living in Dunblane Road, Noble Park for the past four and half years, has always find this street convenient, clean and safe. It has access to Princess Hwy and Heatherton Road. Step over the road to Parkfield Reserve and the tennis club and only a short stroll to Noble Park Station, shops and schools. Some of the conveniences are:

1. Two Bunnings Warehouses within 5 minutes of Dunblane Road - one on the left at 754-768 Princes Hwy and one on the right at 1-5 Gladstone Road (off Princess Hwy)
2. Three Coles Supermarkets - one on intersection of Princess Hwy and Springvale Road (5 minutes drive), one in Noble Park Central (10 to 15 minutes walk) towards Heatherton Road, and a 24 hour Coles at Dandenong (5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy)
3. Dandenong Market is 5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy. It has the cheapest fruits and vegetables in town. There is a butcher that sells the tastiest roast chicken for $7 (Premier Poultry). During mango season, a box of mangoes can sell for $15, often they are sold at $10 towards closure at 4pm. I would always buy fruits, vegetables, meats and seafood from Dandenong Market or Springvale as there is big difference in quality and price compared to buying at Coles or Woolworths
4. Dandenong Plaza is 5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy
5. McDonalds (24 hours) is 10 to 15 minutes walk via Princess Hwy at the corner of Princess Hwy/Elonera Rd
6. Two KFCs - one within 10 minutes walk to the right of Princess Hwy and one on the left of Dunblane Rd at intersection of Princess Hwy/Springvale Rd
7. Noble Park train station is 10 to 15 minutes walk via Heatherthon Road, left of Dunblane Road. Two lines service this area - Cranbourne and Pakenham lines
8. Eastlink (M3) is accessible within 5 minutes drive down Princes Hwy (left of Dunblane Road). Monash Freeway (M1) is accessible within 10 minutes drive down Jacksons Road (right of Dunblane Road, corner of 24 hour McDonalds)
9. Springvale is 10 minutes via Heatherton Road. It is predominantly a Vietnamese community, meaning there are plenty of nice Vietnamese restaurants and Asian groceries. There are shops selling refreshing sugar cane juice. My favourite is the Vietnamese sandwich rolls that are between $3.50 to $5
10. IKEA Springvale is 10 minutes drive towards city via Princess Hwy. It is located in Springvale Homemaker Centre which opened recently. There is also a JB Hi-Fi in the centre (WEB:http://springvalehomemakercentre.com.au). Plenty of shopping here
11. Chadstone Shopping Centre is 20 minutes drive towards city via Princess Hwy
12. Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre is 12 minutes drive via Browns Road or Elonera Road/Jacksons Road (WEB: http://www.waverleygardens.com.au)
13. Monash University, Clayton Campus is close by (15 minutes drive), meaning plenty of students wanting to rent (if you are wanting to rent out a room or two)
14. Noble Park Aquatic Centre is nearby, near train station at 9 Memorial Drive, corner Heatherton Road (WEB: http://www.nobleparkac.com.au)
15. Spotlight is at intersection of Princess Hwy and Springvale Road (5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy)
16. Italian style fruit and vegetable market (Market Europa) is within 10 minutes walk via Princess Hwy
17. Sandown racecourse is 5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy. It is home of Sandown Classic (horse racing) and Sandown 500 (V8 supercars racing). Lots of other activities at Sandown throughout the year such as Holland Festival in February each year (WEB: http://www.hollandfestival.com.au/index.html), TET Festival (Vietnamese). Events calendar available at (WEB: http://www.sandown.net.au/events)
18. Dan Murphy is 5 minutes drive via Princess Hwy near intersection of Princess Hwy/Springvale Road. A much closer bottle shop is BWS at Sandown Park Hotel
19. Restaurant and bar at Sandown Park Hotel (5 minutes drive to Cnr Corrigan Rd & Princes Hwy). Also on the same location but across the road is 'Highways - Ahern's Irish Bar' (WEB: http://www.pubfinda.com.au/venues/in/vic/springvale/highways-aherns-irish-bar). There is a TAB in the Irish bar. The Vale Hotel is another pub, restaurant and tavern at 2277 Dandenong Road, Springvale (corner of Princess Hwy/Springvale Road - WEB: www.valehotel.com.au). The Vale Hotel is a good place to have a beer and watch your favourite sports
20. Edithvale Beach is 20 to 30 minutes drive down Springvale Road
21. Waverley Gardens Shopping Centre is 5 minutes drive. The shopping centre has Coles, Woolworths and Aldi


There are more around but will leave it as it is.

Checkout newer houses and units at 8, 25, 28-30, 49, 53, 61A, 62 and 82 Dunblane Road. The rest are older or rundown houses waiting for developers to buy and build. Notice demographic is changing, more Caucasians are moving in.

Surprise me that at this stage, property prices remain affordable. Let's see how long that will stay. Every suburbs will have good and bad streets. Check out this street.

Property buyers may use the above guide when house hunting. Note that Google streetview that shows 'Dunblane Road' on StreetAdvisor is outdated by at least two years at the time of writing this review, as there are nice units that have been built since, for example at 25 Dunblane Road (beside the oval).

Have fun.
