"Meh... over-priced perhaps?"

Cathies Lane, Wantirna South was originally part of an orchard back in the 70's and 80's. Come the 90's and it starts getting developed and is fairly inexpensive.

Push forward about 5 years and it starts getting a tad more pricey - this is due to the improvements made to Knox Shopping Centre which is nearby and also thanks to the local council finally putting in roundabouts to stop cars using the street as a hoon road between Burwood Highway and High-street (& vice versa).

Push forward another 5 years and prices start going up even more as flashy new mod-con homes start getting built on existing land.

By aorund 2005, news of the freway (to be known as Eastlink in 2008), surfaces and properties start going up in price somewhat but then with the US economy already taking a bit of a nosedive from my recollection anyway, prices start plateuing.

Now, there are alot of overpriced properties and Wantirna South, Cathies Lane in particular isn't sought after as much (or perhaps it is) as all of the houses on the street are either owner-occupied or rented by wannabe-yuppies who fearfully cling to their faux four wheel drives (you know who you are, you pretentious people.. okay, perhaps I am jealous, but you're still pretentious - or however that word is spelt).

There are lots of accessible schools in the area including Wantirna Sec College (hmm), The Knox School (for the elite yuppie-kidlings to attend), and the local Christian school for the morally-conscious and church-conscious souls out there.

The street has a traffic light at High Street but still (OMG why???) no light at the Burwood Highway intersection. Goodness knows why. Seriously??? Um, hello street-planner people...

Anyway... so yeah. that's the street and perhaps with me living there the property value has taken a tad of a nose dive?

Um yeah, and it's near amenities, shops and stuff.
