Adaleigh Street

"All the parts you want in one street."

Right, Adaleigh street. It comes fully equiped with a beautiful park at the end of your street (cruickshank park) which ahs a picturesque walking/Running track around it. A BMX bike track for the kids, or if you like a hit of tennis, there are 2 free public courts as well.

If your kids are in Primary school, or are about to be, well there are 3 in the area, 2 of which are well within walking distance. Perhaps you want to dine out for a nice meal? Then there is Anderson street which boast the best of the worlds cuisine and even a wine bar, not to mention the sun theater which shows all your latest films and some classics on the side. I have walked the entire distance which can be too far for some, but I just love the view of the some of the older style homes and even how the modern is now blending into the old. Quite well in my opinion. Once there, you will be able to roam around check out the boutique clothing stores and even some specialty stores.

So that's some of what the areas gives back, but in regard to the street. It's pretty conservative, with all bar three (at the writing of this review) houses are two story. Most houses have fully establish trees in front of them and well groomed lawns and gardens. These people are money conscience with many owning rain water tanks and even a few with solar panels.

So if your into what I've written above, keep your eye on this street or even treat your self with leisurely walk off the park to give it a bit of a skiz.

Florence Street

"Quiet corner of Williamstown"

Florence street isn't your typical Williamstown street. It's away from all the hype of your Nelsons places, or Williamstown beach or the Strand. Florence street is a Gum tree lined street that has one side with curbs, and the other has none. Instead it seamlessly blends with the road. This is a feature of the street is very uncommon these days. It gives the street a casual feel. A place where you can drive right up to your own door step, your friends door step even.

Some may say that the cemetery that is around corner could not be ideal for living... That's in the mind of the person living here. In my opinion, I have never had an issue with it and I have had a great friend live here most his life. So take it for what its worth.

Further more to what I have mentioned above, Newport and Williamstown nth Train stations are short drives away, and there is a sports field that hosts junior and senior cricket and baseball. Even the odd local kick of the footy. If you into horses, there is a small Horse club, It may be equestrian, I'm not sure, I have never looked into it. They seem to on their turf once a month or so.

All in all, this street is away from it all, which i think gives it its character and its true value. You can have the lifestyle of Williamstown and still go home afterward and feel as though your in a small suburb many clicks from the city. Don't mind if i do. :)

Balmoral Street South

"Get anywhere quick!"

Balmoral Street South is a short street that backs onto the princess freeway. One may think that is a bad thing, but because of the hefty fence that are up, you tend to not hear much from the freeway at all.

As soon as you leave the street you have anything you could possibly need. Whether you need juice for the car (BP meters away), or want to have a kick of the footy (cricket and footy ground across the road) perhaps need a quick bite (McDonald's, Subway, KFC, Hungry Jacks, New Red Rooster and plenty of small family run business' all within a km) or you might even just be going to a mates house or even to work... Well there is the princess fwy on ramp right at your doorstep which you can get anywhere quickly. This joins with city link, or the western ring road to make any journey simple. If you're more the person to catch public transport to work, well there is a foot bridge that leads right to Laverton station. Laverton station is the most major station on the werribee line, with upgrades in development at the moment.

Apart from the above, people are friendly working class people, with some young professional buying their first homes as the retirees move on. I have lived and had friends in the area most of my life, and I can say that even though some may look a bit rougher than others, all the people I have run into have been rather nice. If were to try and find any negative, it might be that some tend to stick to themselves more than usual. That, in my eyes, isn't a drama by any stretch.

Hosken Street

"Quiet and Close to everything"

This small winding street boasts some, if not most of the aspects you need in a location. There is a pool in the street, A shopping center only meters away, it's a short distance away from a major train station (which is being upgraded), A short drive from pier street Restaurants (not to mention the beach!) and if you drive to work, then you're right next to the princess freeway that will get you anywhere in Melbourne.

This street isn't large and as a result, it doesn't attract much traffic. The noise from the main road is minimal and you rarely get trucks and such driving through disturbing your peace and quiet.

As said in other reviews, the area is mainly populated by retirees and what seems to be the case in the area, is they have kids still living at home. These kids typically are aged in there early to mid twenties. They don't tend to be any trouble, but in the summer months, they do what kids do in that age and that is cruise in their cars down to the beach.

That aside, Houses are looked after and there are many using gray water and tank water. So that mean greens grasses and water friendly garden! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending someone to live here.

Nelson Pl

"Healthly Atmosphere, Supurb Culture"

Nelson Place is one of the main area's of Williamstown. A real tourist attraction for people to come down and enjoy a relaxed and local experience. The majority of the street is home to Cafe's, Restaurants and Bars, but above these, at the back of or even just behind you will find a apartments where the young and groovy live. There isn't a time where you will find this place not breathe taking. Those who live in the area live it to its true potential and everyone from the surround suburbs come just to bask in its glory of lush parks, city views and even Ferry Rides that leave Gem Pier. The typically takes passengers around trips of Hobson’s Bay, Drop you off in St Kilda or South Bank Melbourne where you can spend your day and return in the afternoon. The locals are always nice and every bar and pub welcomes with smiles and almost a cold drink as soon as you would in the door.

Nelson place Williamstown may not be the best place to live exactly, because of lack of apartments and well every piece of real estate is used for some sort of commercial business, but the closer you are to this great area, the better you are.

Peel Street

"Great streets with all the bells and Whistles"

Peel street is one of the best Streets in Newport and Williamstown.
The streets is lined with beautiful Gum Tress right through as well as great room on either side of the road. From with in the street you will find Great Melbourne views and a short stole from the infamous "the Strand" strip and also the great Life Styles Gym.

Whether you need a Bus or Train, you will find both within a short walk depending on where you need to go or you can drive anywhere in Victoria with having close access to the Westgate Freeway, Western Ring road and the Princess Highway, getting away with the kids for the weekend is simple.

This great lifestyle and beautiful scenery comes at a price though. Prices range from around 600,000 to the low Millions.

Nice review FallOut. How long have you been living in the area for?

My whole life.
Don't get me wrong, the surrounding streets in the area have much the same qualities as Peel, though Peel has those little added extras that just make it a stand out in its location.

Fallout, is that a trainstation past the west end of your street? If so, do you hear much of the commotion from there? i'm guessing not with 5/5 peace and quiet rating you gave.. but I'm just double curious... :)

Ruroh, Yes it is.

Although on the map it looks like there is a massive train station that would generate alot of noise and what not, but the majority of what you see is actually the old Newport Train Workshops from way back when they used to service and repair alot of the old steam engines and what not.There is still some, but little activity in those workshops.

Newport train station is still there however, but only outputs minimal noise. I can only speak from where i live, which is fairly close to the right hand side of the street via the map. I can only hear minimal amounts of noise from the trains and that is only when a nice wind is blowing down my way and VERY still nights when car traffic is low. I would imagine that the noise level would be marginally louder, but i can't speak for them.

hope that answered your question.

Just to let you all know. Prices have certainly gone up since my review. You would it pretty difficult to find a house in the street for under 1mil in any good condition. Prices along the strand have gone up to as far as 3..6mil. Who would have thought that this suburb was in the low tens of thousands 30 years ago. How's that for growth.
