"Quiet pocket of Erskinville"

Erskiville village has wide street scape and a lovely heritage train station. It is safe, quaint & beautiful with trendy cafes, pubs, restaurants yet so close to buzzing NewTown. It reminds me of Leura Blue Mountain.

There are two distinctively different part of Erskinville. The quiet part is near Tom Bass Sculpture Studio (Railway Pde, Clara St, Ada Ln) with tree lined terraces and low rise warehouse apartments. With only 5 mins walk to train station and a 10-12mins walk to buzzing NewTown, we are spoiled with lifestyle choices. A local primary school is only 5 mins walk away near the train station. This part of Erskinville is in a safe family neighbourhood with small children playgrounds where you can mingle with other families.

However, on the other side of Erskiville there has been over development of high density apartments in the areas of Coulson St/Eve St/Pearl St.

Pick the right area, you will experience gorgeous village living lifestyle in a quaint country like neighbourhood. We love our part of Erskinville.

"Gett ing too busy with traffic and too many apartments"

Unfortunately this once lovely suburb has sufferered from over development. There are now too many residents squashed into this small suburb due to the amount of apartments being built. This has resulted in traffic jams, noise, pollution and overcrowding of schools and locals restaurants and pubs. There has also been an increase in crime in the area. Such a shame but I wouldn't choose to move/buy in Erko anymore!
