"Best-kept secret anywhere!"

Arrived here by accident six years ago, bought a house as a temporary measure because real estate was so cheap the price came out of petty-cash, and I knew I could resell without making a loss in an expected six months. Lincoln Street is near the top of the hill, and I have large views of the tree-lined streets and beyond to the mountains. This area used to be less popular because it was a 'Commission' area, but over the last few years people have been buying them from the ministry and doing them up. The pride shows. And although prices are up, you can still buy a solid (if not pretty) house around here for the price of the Stamp Duty you'd pay for houses in some suburbs around Melbourne.

Not only have I stayed, but two friends with massive Melbourne mortgages sold up and moved down here on the strength of what they'd seen during visits. They're both happy to commute to Pakenham for work, no longer have mortgages and even have a useful amount in their bank accounts.

Some retail prices are far to high, but that can be worked around, and every service one could require is within about two minutes, or 10-15 minutes at most. AND I can get to the opera-house more quickly from here than from Lilydale, because the Fast Train and Freeway take me from door to door.

Great spot, endless scope.
