Reviews of Serpells Road, Templestowe

"Love living on Serpells Road, great acre lifestyle with plenty of space"

I have lived on Serpells Rd for about 5 years now. The big attraction is space, most blocks are 1 acre and that means larger homes and something so rare these days, a big backyard! Serpells Road has become known as one of the best streets in Templestowe, homes would range in price from $1.5 to $7 million and are a mix of older style homes from the 1970's to more modern mansions, and no shortage of French/traditional style homes. St Charles Borromeo Templestowe, Templestowe Park Primary and also Serpells Primary School are all walkable. It is a very quiet street, yes we see some cars being a main road but nowhere that it is noticeable from inside your homes. Shopping wise we are spoilt, with Westfield Doncaster 5 minutes away. We also have the Pines Shopping Centre 5 minutes away and many local restaurants and pubs within 10 minutes at James Street Templestowe. Public transport is not fantastic in Templestowe, we have plenty of buses in fact I have a bus stop right outside my door. You can catch a bus to Westfield Doncaster which then can connect you to the city or Box Hill Central if you need to catch a train elsewhere. The Eastern Freeway makes the commute to the city easy, it can take up to one hour in peak hour but off-peak 30 minutes is possible.

"Prestigious Properties & High Class"

Golden mile at its finest!! Serpells Road is know to all the local residents as the must live destination in the area!!! Surrounded by prestigeous and million dollar properties, it's not a surprise that everyone wants to live here. With two major primary schools (Serpell Primary School & St. Charles Borromeo Primary School) on this road, you pretty much all amenities close by.There is a bus that runs along Serpells Road and takes you to the train station which then takes you to the CBD. All allotments are at least an acre and the land itself is worth A LOT of money! Build your dream home and make millions! It is the place to be in terms of raising a family and future.

Great for

  • Prestigious and million dollar properties
  • Acre allotments
  • Quiet and safe

Not great for

  • Road needs a lot of work
  • No footpaths or safe parking

"Superior Serpells Rd"

Serpells Rd has long been a popular Templestowe address namely for its proximity to The Pines shopping centre and schools as well as buses along Reynolds, Williams and Blackburn Rds. It is also the gateway to some of Templestowe's finest addresses.
The first section of Serpells Rd winds over Andersons Creek Rd and Blackburn Rd past Landscape Drive Reserve to Serpells Primary School. This is a high-set location with many cul-de-sacs stemming from it. There are views and modern homes all along this section.
A t-intersection and a right-hand turn takes you to the next section of the road where coveted addresses such as Jacov Gardens, Sarah Crescent and Church Rd exist.
If you follow this road you'll get to Templestowe Village shopping centre and recreation complex.
So you can see how vital this road is to the the lifestyle so enjoyed by Templestowe residents.

"RIght in the heart of Templestowe's golden mile"

Serpells Road is famous for it's large acre blocks with multi-million dollar homes. Having lived in the area for a long time it really is the place to be with land now exceeding $1 million per block.

As is typical of large acre blocks, neighborly spirit is not the best, in fact most of us don't see our neighbors. Not that we wouldnt like to, just that the blocks are so far apart and most people seem to be so busy.

Buses run down Serpells Road so public transport is not a problem, an Ruffy Park is walking distance providing a great place to walk the dog.

Not cheap, but if you can afford it provides a much better lifestyle alternative to some of the more up market options in Toorak and Canterbury.
