"Pleasant surroundings and close proximity to all amenities"

Tarcoola Drive is surrounded by caring neighbours who appreciate living in the city, yet love the feel of the country. On a daily basis, the neighbours are out and about socialising with one another, getting their daily exercise by making the most of the beautiful adjoining reserve or walking their children to and from the child care centre or primary school. Tarcoola Drive is filled with warmth, by the people who live there, the surroundings and the convenient location to all amenities. I thoroughly enjoy living in such a caring and innovative neighbourhood.

"Great for families"

We moved in to Tarcoola Drive relatively recently & have loved it. The neighbours are friendly, the street is quiet & we back onto a huge parkland. The park has extensive walking/riding tracks & there is walking access to kids playgrounds, sport ovals and tennis courts.
Only a short walk to the milk bar & not much further to the local shops & Lower Plenty Hotel.
The local childcare centre is one of the best in the northern suburbs & Streeton Views Primary is less than 5 mins by foot.
We haven't seen too many houses go for sale here...I guess once you arrive you don't want to leave. We feel lucky we bought here when we did & recommend if you see an opportunity to buy here to take it also.

"Out-of-Date and has absolutely no character"

I was invited to go visit my friend in Tarcoola Drive Yallambie who for some reason decided to rent a place of her own there for a bit of change. She raved on about how it's an up-coming suburb and that I should consider buying into another investment property there. She said that it is family friendly, in amongst trees and close to public transport. It sounded fantastic to me and I was genuinely excited to go visit. I thought that given it was close to Eltham that it would be lovely and serene........well my god.....it couldn't have been further from the truth. It was boring and ugly. Every house looks like they're stuck in the 70's with that terrible yellow beer bottle glass in the doorway and oil stains on the driveway from a tradesman's ute. I stayed over at her place and all I could hear from the neighbours was a bunch of bogans swearing at the top of there voices, smoking like chimneys and blaring Bon Jovi to 3am. And as for trees, well.....all I saw other than the occassional Gum Tree were those hideous Pine Trees. And the only public transport available close by are buses. For people who are genuinely interested in buying a property within this area......good luck. This place is probably only best for young 20 year olds who want to hang out with like-minded individuals. Not a good investment choice.
