"Peakhurst and the surrounding suburbs will get very expensive soon..."

My wife and I bought here in Peakhurst for the only reason it is the cheapest, safest and quietest area so far within the St George area.
Advice for anyone who wants to buy here and the surrounding areas, you better do it fast or else it will turn out expensive and then you will need to go woopwoop...

PS Mainly Modern Australians, UK/ Europeans and North/South Americans here, with a bit of an Asian mix (not as bad as Hurstville)

Peakhurst is close to Mortdale which has a great little shopping centre, with cafes and restaurants. It is also close to Roselands and Hurstville shopping centres.

"safe & quiet"

The neighbors are polite, mostly retirees.The park is just a stone's throw away. Lots of greeneries and birds. Recommended for people who work in the city and do not want the chaos. It is a quiet area with lots of potential.
