"The best suburb overall in the south east region"

I bought a block of land here last year in the new Aquarevo estate for $525,000 for 512 sqm. I researched a lot about the area before buying as the land prices were quite high compared to the nearby suburbs and all I found was good reviews from all my sources. Since moving in the area this year I am so glad I chose this suburb. Just to mention a few of the amenities the primary school is 5 minutes walk, Marriot waters shops is 10 minutes walk, Merinda park station 15 minutes walk, Melbourne CBD is 40 minutes drive on a weekday and less than that on a weekend after the roads have been upgarded and not to mention the parks and wetlands just outside my house.
In my opinion due to the safety and amenities of this area once the last few remaining blocks are sold by next year the prices of the houses would sky rocket.

"A community to be proud of"

Great place to raise a young family, plenty of wetlands, parks, bbq area to take the kids. Friendly community where you will see a lot of families walking their dogs or riding their bikes. Lyndhurst primary school and nearby shops make it even more convenient.

"Great Place to raise a family"

Everything you need within walking distance, shops (Woolworths, Aldi, Dan's), parks, schools, train station. Safe, quiet area with a friendly community vibe. Living in the Marriott waters estate allows for the added privilege of the community gym and pool.

"Awesome area!"

We’ve moved in 6 months ago and it’s been amazing! Lots of parks and wetlands around the estate and people are just lovely! Merida Park station is only 10 mins walk from our place. You have all the shops in the shopping plaza. Expensive but well worth it. Perfect for family.

"Love my area and neighbours"

I live around boland drive and near lake. Great for young family and kids. Rush hour time (morning & after work) is quite hectic through estate. Nice to run & walk around lake to shopping centre. Great community and neighbourhood, looking after each other. Kid friend park and playground. Nice size shopping complex. Generally estate is pretty clean and well looked after. Good childcare around and in the estate. Close to beach, big shopping centres, sports centre. The one thing I concern is the smell might be coming from poultry on tompsons road & from paddock which is opposite glasscocks road. But you dont smell it all the time. couple fo times a month??Other than that it's pretty lovely area to live..

It has every thing you could think of, direct access to Freeway, lakes, park, ovals, pay area for kids, the local shopping area (Dan Murphy, woolworths, Aldi, Nandos, Dominos) Public Transport ( Lynbrook Station) , Now have Bus Route. The list is on and on and on. I will never move from Lyndhurst

"Good area - but serious traffic issues and it stinks"

I have been living in Lyndhurst for the last five years. I really like the lakes, park, ovals and the local shopping area. The people are nice. However, there are some serious issues with the area. Number one in my opinion is the traffic. Thompsons Road, Boland Road, Evans Road, Lynhurst Blvd etc all have serious bottlenecks, and the traffic hardly moves during peak hours, and the estate is very porous to all this traffic, especially to the one connecting Thompsons Road to Western Port Hwy. The Second issue is the frequent, sometimes unbearable, stink in the area. Also, there are no buses. The area seems neglected by the authorities dealing with these issues.

Great for

  • Shopping centre
  • School
  • Citizens' Club
  • Friendly people

Not great for

Once this area is fully serviced with a bus route, access to the train station at lynbrook, Merinda park station is close to us (10 min walk) but the new station will help a lot. Not to mention the shopping centre with Marriott Waters where we are living that will avoid the need to go to far for shops. I have never tried tried driving into the city but I get onto the Monash without any delays most days and most of the traffic build up is at the city end so no matter where you live you are affected by the same traffic. As far as the train goes being less than 5 mins drive from the station and a 55 minute train ride into the CBD is not that bad. Its more the choice of things to do outside of work that appeals most to me, the coast is really close and with the new pennisular link opeing up in a year or so it will make those areas even closer. Areas like emerald, philip island are all within easy access and every facility i have ever needed is available in one of the nearby suburbs. Overall its a fantastic place to live and there is more on the way.

"Bought our first home here and LOVE IT!"

A beautiful suburb which is away from all the traffic and noise. My wife and I have been living here for 2 months and love it.

The neighbors are very friendly. There are always families walking with their kids or their pets in the many parks in Lyndhurst. I am into photography, and this suburb provides a great with the many parks and views.

The negative - No public transport near by!

"Fantastic Place and very Safe"

So far this is one of the best suburbs we have lived in.. Its spacious, clean, very friendly neighborhood. Access is very good. will obviously be better at the Thompson rd corner once traffic set up changes. parks are great and getting better. once the commercial area's are done shopping will be great too.

"buy for the future"

We bought our land in the marriott waters estate 2 years ago and we are in our house 8 months now and really love it, we were able to get a nice sized block of land (740sqm) and build our first, last and only home! We decided on the side of the estate closest to the train station to be within walking distance of the station for work and in the future for Schools for the kids. I admit the walk to the station is dangerous at the minute but once the retail/commercial development is finished in the area between the estate and station there will be a safer and quicker path over. That along with the shopping area that will be similar to Lynbrooks and the residents only club will make this area even better to live in.

At the moment we are able to enjoy the lakes and have nice walks with the the kids. The area feels safe and a lot of careful planning has gone into the area to make sure it has everything the residents need. Being close to all major roads and the coast is fantastic. Not saying anything negative about Cranbourne but the negative comments and rating from some of the residents isnt helpful. There is also a predicted increase in commercial activity in the close by dandenong south area creating local jobs.

I do feel it will be around 2 years from now before we see the true value of the area when the facilities are in place and everything feels more settled, even longer for the commercial side of things. I know we wouldnt be able to afford our house now never mind in 2 years. Its good now and will be great tomorrow, we feel confident that we have chosen somewhere that will provide all our family needs now and into the future. Dont leave it to late to buy, prices are on the increase all the time.

Thanks for posting your comment - we are thinking of buying in the last release and you have answered a lot of our questions. Just out of interest, how long does it take to walk to the station ? We keep hearing negative comments about the South but strangely only ever by people from the North and vice versa but this Estate has a lovely feel.
I have had concerns over the "toxic" dump nearby - is this an issue?
Thanks

"We just simply love living here!!!"

We just simply love living here, we have been here for 12 months now and love the fact that almost everywhere we want to go in Melbourne we can jump on a Freeway and get there. If you look at the environment and the suburb itself, it a really lovely place to live, we have a young child and 2 in their late teens, we spend most of the weekends at home, we take the dogs for a walk and feed the duck, we love to watch the bird life at the lakes and especially love the beautiful Pelicans. We love seeing what people are doing in their gardens and feel so safe, all of the neighbors in our street are great.The beach just 12 min away we often go down for dinner on a hot evening after work. Public transport and shopping facilities in the immediate area are pretty average at the moment but we only purchased our land 2 years ago and at the time were driven across several paddocks to get to our block. Now our area is almost completely built on in the next 2 years Lyndhurst will have everything you need.

I respect that everyone has a right to comment, but I strongly disagree with what you say about Lyndhurst as a resident I find it has a lot to offer, by the look of your comment it would seem to me that you have a vested interest in running Lyndhurst down and making Waverly Park look good, I am not sure why however it’s nice to know that Lyndhurst is in the same price bracket as Waverly Park Waverly is a nice area. :-)

"An exclusive Suburb for professionals"

Lyndhurst is a very exclusive suburbs for professionals and retirees. It is not a place for singles or young couples (ie 18 - 25). The neighbourhood is very safe and friendly, there is no crime in the area and the properties on the Fig Tree Estate are some of the nicest in the area. Lyndhurst is 10 minutes to the nearest beach in Carrum, 20 minutes to the Fountain Gate Shopping Centre, 5 minutes to the nearest shopping centre and on a weekend 35 minutes from the CBD not the M1 has the 4 lanes open. Even rush hour the other day it took me 40 minutes to Kings Street, in the CBD.
The nearest primary school is a 10 minute walk (Lynbrook Primary) and the walk consists of boardwalks and lakes. Also at Lynbrook you have Coles, Medical Centre, Kinder, Hairdresser, Butcher, Baker, Fruit and Veg Shops, Takeaways, Video Library, banks and much more.

If I am going that far I would rather get a bigger land and a farm.
Little towns do have the same facilities.

40 minutes with no traffic I agree but with real melbourne Traffic you dreaming ..Land is so so expensive you will never be able to resell your house with a good profit that far from the city.

AThompson

Sorry mate, but we have just sold our house there and have moved to one of the new houses on Marriot Water (still in Lyndhurst), bought the original house in 2005 and just sold for $280k profit.
Maybe you would like to come and do the drive to work with me one morning. I admit 12 months ago it was a very different story and it would take 1hr 15min up to 1hr 30min to King Street. Went up to the office on Saturday (the other end of King Street) and it took 35 mins from pulling out of my drive and arriving in our underground car park. Have you travelled down the M1 since the road works have finished?

AndrewI

I do use M1 Everyday and I am not surprised it took you 35 min because Saturday is a public holiday..lol

Also wait till you are in real traffic at 8:30 am or 5 pm then judge after all Schools and Tafes and Uni are back..Not everyone is back yet.

Also as a matter of fact I have a friend he is independent evaluator and he said he has never heard of house made 280,000 profit yet in lyndhurst form his reports Because it will make it one of the most desirable suburb in the south east but actually its not...yet

If you done it well done mate but I really doubt it that every house in Lyndhurst will make profit of 280,000 like yours.

Although its not worth buying there...you can go and but in lakeside Pakenham same size land and half the price and even better planning.
Don’t tell me that because Lyndhurst is 15km closer to the city it double the price from lakeside Pakenham.

AndrewI

You said "Went up to the office on Saturday" its a weekend not publick holiday its not a working day still.

If you really made 280,000 you shouldn't be upset you should keep it toyourself and make more money actually you made what many people coudn't make in 2009.

I am not getting into argument with any one I am sorry if I gave you this impression.

As a matter of fact I am going to rent my place in noble park to a relative becuase I can and the rent prices going crazy there and I am going to buy another house in wheelers hill where you should be paying 550,000 for a property.

By the way you might need to check the flood plans of lyndhurst near Mariot waters ;-)

Good day to you to mate.

AThompson

Um yes that is correct and you replied with " do use M1 Everyday and I am not surprised it took you 35 min because Saturday is a public holiday..lol"

Don't think I need to check the flood plan mate, there is as much chance of Lyndhurst flooding than Noble Park beating Toorak in property prices;) In the 6 years I have been here we have never had a flood, maybe that's because we are in a drought?

Good luck with the property at Wheelers Hill, I have a couple of investment properties around, it seems Point Cook, Pakenham are the places to buy. Not to sure about Franga, keep revisiting the idea as it has a lot to offer being near the beach etc. Never looked in to Wheelers Hill, is that for investment or personal use?

MariaL

Not sure what is your point about M1 may be I made a typo but
"you went on Saturday and thats not a wroking day"
what are you going on about now.

Good for you having investment at Point cook and Pakenham thats a wise thing to do.
You might also consider manor lakes near wyndham vale thers is good money.
But I can guarrantee you not going to make 280,000 in 2 years


Not sure what beach you talking about.

Also you never know when its gonna flood when it rain it pours my friend specially when there is a flood path in the streets.

AThompson

Umm two accounts, Mikymad and Andrewl is that allowed? No wonder you are getting confused mate. Have a great day.

MariaL

actually I was replying on behalf of my partener..You left the whole point of the topic and talking about accounts ..Have a great day.

Cranbourne (Crimeburn), umm that says it all, I guess you do not like exclusive areas. I cannot understand why someone who does not live in the area can have such a strong opinion.
How on earth can traffic be busy it is an estate, not the Nepean or Gippi?
Could you also explain how Power, Water, Gas, Pay TV is average? Also in regards to the neighbours did you chat with any?
The only thing you have got correct is the resale value.

AndrewI

Cranbourne is also a logic place to live in .... you get what you pay for ...Crimeburn this word I heard from the ladies in the office...it doesn't represent anything.
If these is crime in carnbourne it will reach lyndhurst

AThompson

Not sure why... does the crime/drugs in Springvale and Dandenong affect Noble Park!!!!

Com'on AThompson no need to attack those who do not agree with u, if u know Lyndhurst is a beautiful place then thats great u got your message out but arguing continuesly about it will send out negative view about Lyndhurst and one of its resident...consider the fact that people don't always see things the way u do and others may have had a bad experience in the area...and just to let u know that its not my intention to offend anybody....PEACE!!

samso

I respect that everyone has a right to comment, but as a resident I strongly disagree with what you say about Lyndhurst, as a resident I find it has a lot to offer, the neighbors are great, when we are out walking around the beautiful recreational areas people are very friendly we feel safe the child care centre we use is wonderful and our child loves to go there. I am confident that it would be almost impossible to rate the things you have rated by just paying a visit to the area like Neighborly Spirit, Internet Access, Cost of living, Pay TV just to mention a few????????????

And you say Noble Park is excellent, says everything!!!

AndrewI

Actually I am one of the engineers who worked on developing lyndhurst and these land has long way to go for the price they asking for to match the real price

I have been living in Noble park since 2007 and my house gained 80,000 in equity..
I am 26 km 30 minutes from the CBD and 25 by freeway.
Its not the best suburb in Melbourne like Toorak or Kew etc. because of what happen in the past but its good enough for the price you pay and what you gain is amazing.

I am so happy that there is people like you that think of Nobel park as bad area because it gave me a chance to buy a bargain.

Good luck with Lyndhurst stick with it 20 years and you will be alright.

Just posted this on the other thread, thought I would also post it here, when you say you worked on developing Lyndhurst, which estate and how long ago?, anyway here are my comments from another thread.:

AThompson

30th January is a public holiday, umm since when???
You say land and property is at a premium in Lyndhurst, well surely that shows how many people are wanting to live there. If this wasn't the case it would be cheaper. A lot of the high end properties are now around $600k. Maybe your valuer needs to revisit the area. We paid $300k for ours and sold it for $580k, yes I agree it was a shock to us, but the properties around us are also selling with such a huge return, another house has just sold at $568k, he made a profit of $168k in 12 months.

Anyway mate, I am not getting in to an argument, each to their own and all that, enjoy your life in Noble Park and I will here in Lyndhurst. Have a great day.

"An excellent suburb"

Lyndhurst is known as the rich peoples suburb from the residents of the neighbouring suburbs of Lynbrook. Over the last 3 years Lyndhurst has grown dramatically and property prices have risen.
In just two years there are properties in the Fig Tree Estate that have rose by over $200k in price.
It is a very quiet scenic suburb.
The most annoying thing about the area is that because Lyndhurst is a desirable area people keep calling places Lyndhurst when they are not even in the suburb for example: Lyndhurst Tip (which is around 10km from Lyndhurst and in Dandenong) and Lyndhurst Secondary School which is not in Lyndhurst but is in Cranbourne??
