"7km from the City and overlooking parkland towards the CBD"

I moved from Footscray to Shearwater Crescent in the Edgewater Estate, Maribyrnong 5 years ago to escape the increased traffic levels and pollution in Footscray. I have not been disappointed.

The part of the Crescent I live on faces Merv Hughes Oval and looks at the CBD via Footscray Park and the Maribyrnong River.

The Crescent itself is located 10-100 metres from the Maribyrnong River and 200 metres to Footscray Park which boasts 20 acres of open parkland depending on which end of the Crescent you live on.

Public transport can be accessed either on Cumberland Drive or Fischer Parade, a 20 metre walk away which will take me to either Highpoint Shopping Centre, Footscray station / market / shops or Ascot Vales station.

Shearwater Crescent is 7km from the city. In summer, you can ride a bike (25 mins) or walk (1hr and 15mins) to/from the CBD along the Maribyrnong River, which connects with the Footscray Road bike/walking path.

You can access both the pool and gymnasium at Victoria University, a 400 metre walk away.

Shearwater Crescent is within 20 metres of The Lakehouse right on Maribyrnong River, which currently houses two cafes / restaurants and overlook the water.

The Edgewater Boulevard shopping strip is 400 metres away, which houses a butcher, bakery, organic supplier, deli, Aldi supermarket and a bottle shop.

Everything is close at hand, but not directly on your doorstep ruining the riverside / parkland serenity that is Shearwater Crescent.
