"got just about the lot"

great access to public transport, very close to Watsonia Station and buses to major areas. heaps of shops and schools. Easy to get to RMIT and Latrobe Uni's as well as 3 public secondary colleges, 2 public primary schools and easy walk to Loyola College.
Park nearby for kids to play at and local football/cricket walking distance.
Plenty of local doctors, and chemists.
Watsonia RSL walking distance for a great meal along with other takeaway and cafes on the main shopping strip.
Close to the Western ring road and only 20 minutes to the airport.
Great place to live, people stop to chat or share a smile when you are working in the garden.
No nightclubs other than the RSL but thats a bonus really.
Only 40 minutes on the train to work in the city of a morning.

"Watsonia... overlooked until now."

From the land sale of the Watson farm estate in 1929, Central Watsonia was developed in the late 50's into the early 70's and was the top end of the Rosanna - Macleod - Watsonia dry belt. With neat homes and streets, firmly middle class it has been long overlooked for the quality suburb it has always been.
Watsonia Station is only 29 min from the city and staffed from first to last train 7 days/week or you can head up Greenwood Drive on the 566 Northland bus to access the No.96 tram City - Mill Park.
Greensborough Greenwood and Macleod Secondary schools are within easy walking distance of central Watsonia
The 700m long Watsonia shopping strip has well over 50 shops and businesses including one of the last local hardware stores, CBA bank, 3 chemists, 5 hair & body salons, 4 cafe's, 2 butchers, 2 bakers, a bottle shop and lacks only a quality restaurant or two to provide every thing you'd need in the one location.
