"Hidden gem of the Ballarat region"

This suburb strikes a balance of all of the good things many would be looking for in a nice suburb to live:

- Is very close to the CBD (of Ballarat Central - with the v-line fast train to Melbourne from there, which can get you to Melbourne CBD in just over an hour on a good day!)

- Has heritage charm with beautiful old houses. Once upon a time Ballarat East's old houses were mostly looking worse-for-wear. These days, it seems like every second or third house is getting the complete makeover and restoration of former heritage glory under all that dirt! The streetscapes have changed as a result and there are increasingly more and more beautiful streets in Ballarat East!

- Good bus links, local/corner shops, and a few little cafes here and there, plus easy access to good schools in Ballarat East, North, and Central areas

- Not too far a drive from the big and new shopping/cinema complex at Delacombe

- Suburb is mostly leafy and has a nice feel to it, walkable to town

- Still affordable! This is a big one considering its close location to town. Rents and property prices are still reasonable, and I've heard of several people who have left Melbourne's suburbs where houses can be $800K+, for a house less than half the cost on a bigger block in a quiet street of Ballarat East. If your Melbourne job allows you to work from home even a couple of days a week; Ballarat's commute for the remaining days really doesn't take that long

- Some people are a bit grungy/dodgy (but you'll get this anywhere!), but most people I've met are lovely. There is a community spirit to parts/streets of the suburb

All in all I think this is a suburb on the up and up.
