"An undiscovered peaceful oasis in Templestowe"

I have been renting for a few months now and absolutely love Princely Terrace. The street is off Chivers Rd in a pocket between Reynolds Road and Porter Street and as a lifelong resident of Templestowe never new it existed.

All properties are on 1 acre blocks and being a no through road there is zero traffic. It is very very quiet and neighbours while friendly keep to themselves, I guess that's what happens when you have big blocks, you just dont see anybody. You better like gardening though, an acre means lots of trees!

At the end of Chivers Road is the bus that takes you to the city or to the Pines Shopping Center. Shopping overall is fantastic, you have Westfield Doncaster 5 minutes away which has lots to do, we love the Village Gold Class cinemas. Other shops include The Pines which has Coles, Safeway, Aldi and Target. If you want take out or restaurants we have Anderson St closeby as well as Blackburn Road which has almost every food option you can think of.

There are great Primary Schools in the area, Templestowe Park Primary and St Charles Borromeo are fantastic.

Not that you need them when you are on an acre but we have Westerfold Park about 30 seconds away and Eltham Park with it's miniature trains 5 minutes away.

Templestowe is getting expensive and you can see from the mansions going up but there are still some bargains to be had if you are prepared to live in an older 1970's or 1980's style home.
  • An unknown oasis in the middle of Templestowe
  • The quietest part of Templestowe yet close to Westfield Doncaster
  • Proximity to great primary schools like St Charles Borromeo and Templestowe Park
  • Acre properties mean lots of grass to mow.
