"Small village yet to be discovered, good value for money"

A great place to live and investment vice , high capital growth. Close proximity to city, friendly neighbourhood, tree-lined street, schools, and thriving art and multi-cultural scene. What more to ask for given the price of the houses in the area! Seddon, Footscray and Yaraville is getting too hippy and highly priced, you will get the same amenity here with less price. I personally like hex street, fontein st , stanhope st and essex st. A place with suburban mall yet local shops are thriving. and for those who is concern with safety, i walk home everyday from the station, i never ever felt unsafe, richmond, reservoir, south yarra and CBD is so unsafe comparatively.Yes, there is some industrial area here, but so many developments is happening, its just a matter time when it is become a million dollar area.

"Quiet tree-lined street in a central location to transport and local amenities, what a charm."

Quiet tree lined street in an established neighbourhood. So central location and yet so serene. With a cul de sac at the end of the street, it feels secluded and yet with the local macdonald reserve playground in the street and local supermarket just around the corner, its pretty nice, to be honest.You will see in the late afternoon and evening when young family and elders having a relaxed stroll around the neighbourhood, bike riding and roller bladding. It only took me 5mins to walk to the station and 4 stops to reach city , save me heaps of time travelling to work. Highly recommended.
