"Best place to buy!"

I've been going to our holiday house in Latham Drive ever since I was born and I can tell you it's a fantastic street to have a hosue in. Best of all, it's a dead end street, so there is no "through" traffic. It's also very very quiet, you can even hear the back beach at some nights.

One the best parts about the street is it's closeness to the back beach, and the portsea pub. It's far enough away that you dont get people parking in your street, but close enough to walk, which is very handy when you want a few drinks at the pub on a Saturday night.

There is the usual problem of spiders etc, but every street in portsea has that. We also have broadband and foxtel at our place, so getting connected is not a problem.

Neighbors are really nice. We have had neighbors move in and out over the years, and everyone that we have met are really really nice. It's a great place to raise a family or retire really.

Overall, Latham drive in portsea is a real gem!!!

"Perfect street for a holiday house"

We've had a house in Latham Drive for over 30 years. It is one of the quietest streets in the very prestigious suburb of Portsea which has exploded in popularity over the past 10 years. The street is located within walking distance to beaches, just over a small hill at the end of the street and you are at the Portsea Back Beach.

The Portsea Back Beach is patrolled by the Portsea Surf Life Saving Club and is very safe if you swim between the flags.

Shopping for most residents is done in nearby Sorrento or at the supermarkets in Rye/Rosebud. Other than the small shops on Nepean Highway near the Portsea pub there is virtually no shops in Portsea which makes the suburb even quieter. Sorrento has everything we need about 5 minutes away.

Beaches really are fantastic and within walking distance to Latham Drive. All in all, a very quiet street which I can highly recommend, though it has become very expensive to live in.

"A perfect place to relax and unwind!"

I've been in Latham drive for many years now and I never get sick of being there. It has pretty much everything that you could ask for! It's a short walk to one of the most famous beaches in australia (they hold the iron man competition there) and the shops and nightlife are just a short walk away.

I think that this is one of the best places to live!
