"Ringwood East"

Ringwood East combines the best of the quaintness of past village suburban lifestyle with the advantages of modern and post modern conveniences. there is Ringwood and the glitzy restaurants and entertainment venues nearby, but local shops and small businesses and activities in the heart of East Ringwood. It is leafy and only slightly undulating. there is medical help in many areas, and fabulous accessible public transport. All in all, it encapsulates everything one would need in a suburb,

"Family friendly"

Having grown up in Ringwood North, I have personally seen the changes and development within the City of Maroondah.

Ringwood East, Ringwood North and Ringwood now have great infrastructure and have seen some great capital gains in the real estate sector. Some parts of Ringwood East still have beautiful character weatherboard and treelined streets.

Surrounded by great schools, (public and private), the redevelopment of Eastland shopping centre and the opening of the Eastlink freeway has made the City of Maroondah a satellite city!

Eastland shopping centre is big, modern and filled with modern restaurants and cafes!

Easy access to the Eastlink with 35mins into the CBD or the other way within 70 mins to Mornington Peninsula.

Ringwood East and surrounding suburbs are now multicultural and affluent.

"Close to Eastland and maroondah hospital"

I had lived for 6 years in Ringwood East,
area is little boring and outdated meh~ place.
Ringwood lake has updated lately along with Eastland update but it isn't walking distance.
There are number of commission homes in the area , more and more townhouses appearing,
We used to love living in Ringwood East but we found other areas are more convenient.

"Well located and improving"

We purchased in Ringwood East in 2010 and have seen the area improve over the years. The recent announcement by Public Transport Victoria to abolish zone 2 means the daily commute by train now costs the same as zone 1 - excellent news and value.

Commuting time by train during peak times to Flinders Street station can be as little as 40 minutes by changing at Richmond to avoid the city loop. I regularly work at Southbank and door to door is less than an hour.

By car, transport links are excellent with easy access to Eastlink. Out of traffic, driving from home to the Flinders Street area is easily achievable in 30-35 minutes and the airport is around 50 minutes drive. At peak times both these journeys can take around an hour.

The streets are quiet and leafy and there are still some great looking character weatherboard houses dotted around.

Ringwood East Primary School is being refurbished, Tintern schools are located in the area, and Ringwood East is zoned to Ringwood High School, which has a great reputation.

The local area is being improved by major redevelopment of Eastland which also includes upgrades to the transportation links. Further information is available from the following links:

Eastland: http://www.ringwoodgoingplaces.com.au/Content/Pub/ContentDetail.asp?lngContentID=250

Transport: http://www.ringwoodgoingplaces.com.au/Content/Pub/ContentDetail.asp?lngContentID=252

New development of 'Aquanation' is underway which adds to the list of benefits to the area, described in the following link:

http://www.ringwoodgoingplaces.com.au/Content/Pub/ContentDetail.asp?lngContentID=237

With regards to housing value, we had our property valued at the end of 2013 and again in December 2014 and it has seen an increase of around 20%. We also had a rental appraisal performed in the same periods and from 2013 to 2014, the rental potential has grown by over 15%.

In some respects, the local shopping strip does let the area down but we have seen improvement over the years, which is hopefully set to continue.

Rentals in Ringwood East

"One of the last bastions of affordable housing in the well-serviced East."

We bought a unit here just over a year ago. R.E is quite, well-timbered, and well-serviced. We are 7 mins walk from the shopping strip and train line. Ringwood proper, with all its excellent services and facilities (Medicare, Costco, Eastland, etc.) is highly accessible, but its bogan population tend to leave quite R.E alone. Great for a young family. There are some absolutely beautiful streets here, but lovely houses and well-kept gardens. There is a real feeling of community and pride in one's area that you just don't get in the huge, McMansion filled suburbs in the west. If you're happy to live a little further out, then RE is a great, affordable option.

"Offers everything you could need"

We've been in Ringwood East for just over a year now and absolutely love it! We have two teenage children as well as a baby, and it's perfect for all. The transport links mean my teenagers can have the freedom to get around without me having to be a taxi! The commute into the city is easy, and it's just such easy access to everywhere - the city, the beach, the Yarra Valley, the Dandenongs, to name just a few. It is safe, clean and quiet, and the parks are fantastic. There are lots of good childcare centres and schools nearby. I would highly recommend Ringwood East, it just has everything you could possibly need.

"Perfect For Families"

We moved to Ringwood East from Donvale over 12 months ago, the reason we chose this area was your money went so much further! We bought a beautiful house fully renovated on 900sq with great gardens and close to all amenities. The same house would have been $200K maybe $300K more in some areas close by. Ringwood East is a really friendly neighbourhood great for kids of all ages. I have lived in Templestowe and Donvale over the past 5 years and I can honestly say Ringwood East has as much to offer if not more, in fact probably more given the close proximity of transport links. We just love it!

"Best suburb in Melbourne"

Everything is close by! Schools, childcare, Eastland, quality pubs and restaurants. You can't go wrong by choosing this suburb as your home or investment. We moved to Ringwood East from Glen Huntly two years ago and we have never regretted it. Ringwood East is like a breath of fresh air and it is a quiet, safe and family friendly area yet close to almost all amenities. The house size here is huge with a lot of beautful trees and gardens nearby. Neighbourhood is friendly and easygoing. We would definiely recommend anyone who consider ringwood east as your next dream home.
