"Enjoy living here"

I've lived in Morris street for 3 years. The location is brilliant. I can walk to the train station (currently being fully refurbished), ride into the city for work in 30 minutes, or drive into the Vic Market on a Sunday morning in 15 mins. There are two large shopping centers, the bigger one with a Big W, Village Cinemas, JB HiFi, along with many other retail outlets. I have my kids in the local day care which is also only a 10 minute walk away. There are lots of options with regards to eating out ranging from traditional pizza, Chinese, Indian, and Vietnamese.

Morris street itself is a quiet, wide street with very little traffic other than locals. There have been some investment in renovations within the street since we've been here which is a positive sign. Morris street is part of a 4 streets which have a heritage overlay to protect the old time look and feel of the neighborhood. There are quite a few houses that have a lot of potential to be restored with a bit of investment which hopefully occurs in the near future.

"great street"

Nice people live in the street. I should know have lived there 40 years. Some have lived there many years and care about the street, others are new young professionals which bring freshness.
in 40 years never been robbed or even heard of a robbery in our street. Stones throw away from train station if you go the back way through paddock. great little secret.

Tb3020 Agree with your comment. Maybe you should post your own individual review under the Sunshine suburb heading as well? The knockers are quick to criticise Sunshine, but the silent majority knows best!

"Sunshines going up....."

At least in the pockets between Koroit creek and Parsons reserve.
All the homes have been heritage listed meaning no sub-division, the reserve has a footy and cricket club, 3 tennis courts a gym and boxing club.
All 4 streets (Couch,Chapman Benjamin and Morris) are appreciating rapidly in value and the tenants are being replaced by homeowners.
10kms from the City and less than $500k gets you a 3/4 bed Californian or double fronted Victorian home.
The Train stations still a death trap at night but is due to be demolished and rebuilt - getting rid of the under-road tunnels that the scumbags hide out in.
All you see are homes being renovated.....a sure sign that sunshine is ever so slowly being a suburb on the rise.
