Daley Street

"Outstanding Lifestyle"

As an Investment:
As a property buyers agent at Capital Property Advisory specialising in property investing for large portfolio holders, we have seen immense growth and recommend certain style properties in carefully selected streets to astute investors. Elwood is a hot spot and always outperforms the averages.

As an Owner Occupier:
I personally lived in Daley Street, Elwood for several years with my children and found the beautifully tree lined streets to be quiet, safe and friendly. This ideal location has everything at your door step, such as trams, shops, restaurants, cafes, beaches, schools, parks and much more.

Elwood is perfect for families, singles, couples and retirees and is only 8 kms from the city. The leafy surrounds provided much character with a combination of art deco apartments, modern buildings, Edwardian cottages and Victorian mansions.

Elwood beach is absolutely beautiful with play equipment, bbq area, running tracks and the Bayside Trail bike track. Furthermore it is only a short distance to the St Kilda botanical gardens which are certainly worth a look.

Experience the shopping precinct of Ormond Road and enjoy the cafes, bars and restaurants. Elwood is a world of its own and an outstanding place to live.

Secret shops – Tennyson Street shops are only a minutes’ walk from Daley Street. This quiet group of shops provide more then you could imagine! There is a small supermarket, chemist, coin laundry, a couple of cafe’s, pizza shop, a sensational bakery and the BEST hairdresser (You are Hair – ask for Craig).

I have to disagree that Elwood is good for families. I grew up in Elwood from age 11 to 23. And am about to leave the area soon, within a couple of yrs anyway. Kids and teenagers will feel isolated in Elwood, as there are very few kids and teenagers in the area.
But Elwood is a good place for young trendy singles, who can afford the cost of living in Elwood. Elwood gives off a pretentious vibe. As a student living in Elwood, I really couldn't afford the high price tag of everything in the area.
Because many people living in Elwood are wealthy proffessionals, with a high population of gay men, most retailers assume that everyone is cashed up. But then I may not fit in because Elwood is quite pretentious and I'm not that type of person. If you go to some of the outer suburbs such as Narre Warren, you get the great shopping prices and everything becomes so much less pretentious, you see so many more young families and kids. It would be easy to feel more at home there than in Elwood if you're a young family with kids, or if you're family oriented. Most mums in Elwood are in their 30's and in professional occupations. So career comes first, family last. But if you go to some of the outer suburbs there are lots of young girls pushing prams. The mentality is completely different.

I have two teenagers and they have many friends in the area, some from primary school and others they have met at secondary school. There are several bus routes just around the corner and Elsternwick station connects to the bus. They happily use the public transport system to take them wherever they want to go. The sporting facilities in and near Elwood are fantastic, especially with the new pavillion at Elwood Park. In the future, Elwood will be even more family friendly as there are hordes of primary school children and pre-schoolers now living in the area. I don't think teenagers will have any problems finding friends in the area now.

As a 30 something Elwood mum, got to say I resent the comment that 'career comes first, family last'! Not in my family, and not with any of the families I went to mother's group with. I feel supremely at home in Elwood with three young kids. and I think it's a bit silly comparing Narre Warren, which is a long way out of Melbourne, with an inner city bayside suburb.

amy11

When I say, career first, family last, what i mean is they work on their career before having kids, which is what the vast majority of women do in Elwood. Young mums are generally less career orientated, and would probably be 'priced out' of Elwood.

amy11

I still think Elwood is not an ideal place for teenagers, because there are hardly any teenagers in Elwood and kids need other kids for socialization. It will continue to be dominated by 30-something career people. It has some major drawbacks like congestion, and a long distance from all the major shopping facilities. In addition it is not well serviced by roads, making it a bit disconnected.

Hi amy11 have you moved out of Elwood?. I think it's fair to say Elwood is not your demographic and that's ok. You need to enjoy a big house in the suburbs with lots of young mums. It sounds like a good move for you to be near people in similar social situation with access to big shopping centers, amenities and supermarkets. That would be my worst nightmare of course which is why I carefully choose Elwood as my place of residence. That's the thing about Melbourne, something for everyone. I chose Elwood based on its cafe, village community vibe which is unique. It ticks all my boxes But of course I don't have children

I moved to Elwood in the 1970's and still live here in the same house. I've seen a lot of changes but it was great then and it's even better now.

Amy11, clearly you don't have a career, that's ok, I don't judge you. Please don't judge me for having one, and a family, and living in Elwood and loving it.

I don't get why people are so offended by someone else's opinion...although I am not living in the area of Elwood only contemplating returning there and perhaps as a renter I feel that the suburb I dwell in is not so mu h a statement about me as a person, not that I am beyond egoism when it comes to where I live, in fact just today I felt very dejected after viewing a property for rent in Sandringham and realising that what was within my price range (just) was not much bigger than a shoe box! I know it is easy to get wrapped up in our address and think that it says something about who we are when in reality it is the small and silent choices that we make in each and every moment that speak volumes about who we really are.

"Easy Living - Everything at your doorstep!"

As an Investment:
As a property buyers agent at Capital Property Advisory specialising in property investing for large portfolio holders, we have seen immense growth and recommend certain streets in this area to astute investors.

As an Owner Occupier:
I personally lived in Westbury Street, St Kilda East for several years with my children and found this area an ideal location for families, couples and singles as everything is at your door step, such as trams, shops, restaurants, cafes and much more.

The famous Alma Park provides a beautifully treed walking tracks and outstanding play area’s and tree house for children.

All your shopping requirements can be met in Carlisle Street, St Kilda East with supermarkets, fruit shops, butchers, bakeries, banks, chemists, clothing and shoe shops (I recommend you take a look at Unique Shoes), several discount stores, restaurants, cafes and bars.

All transport facilities are within a short walk and I suggest you take a simple tram ride down to St Kilda beach and the wondrous environment that Acland Street, St Kilda has to offer with the highly regarded cafes, bars and restaurants. Located at that end of Acland Street is Luna Park which is a great day out for all children big and small.
