Strathmore
25th September 2020

"Lots of hills but good amount of private schools and parks"

Squished between essendon and moonee ponds, it's your neighbouring town that has all the amenities of both with still the high price of a home. Lots of old flats and blocks of 60s style homes still here.

Moonee Ponds
25th September 2020

"Lots of local food eateries- Variety of take out cuisines."

Large parks, new modern apartments bringing in singles, first home owners, students, working professionals that are increasing foot traffic daily in the area. Lots of fitness guru jogging and running. Lots of kids in the area as well on their bikes or with family picnics.
Fashionable trendy people.
Great dine out cuisine variety.
Some shops and buildings need renovation near the train station as they are very old, run down and outdated. Commercial landlords should fix that up to bring more appeal to the streets.

Chadstone
25th September 2020

"Congested full of town houses, however easy freeway access + university and shopping malls"

If you want to live in an area that is central to the CBD and also to the east, then Chadstone is for you however only in certain pockets of Chadstone and not on the main waverly roads or near power lines which long term is damaging to your health. Demographics are changing, lots of new homes being built, including modern town houses. I am seeing more fancy cars and close to universities for students.

South Yarra
25th September 2020

"For young professionals who like restaurants and bars nearby. However alot of vacant shops these days and not enough foot traffic."

Lots of apartments for those who are young and wanting to live in a neighbourhood with other young working professionals. Everything is convenient with easy access into the CBD. Not peaceful unless you live high up tower apartments. Abit cramped if you have a family as not alot of green space. Public primary schools here are full to the max, children full in a classes of 25 x 7 classes. Congested area for families. Lots of car congestion. Heaps of beauty places for women, lots of going out places and fitness businesses.

Box Hill North
25th September 2020

"Leafy parks for dog walkers, Family friendly, quiet neighourhood"

Quiet neighbourhood compare to crowded box hill central. Leafy greenery surroundings. Close to Doncaster Westfield shopping centre - only 10mins drive. Homes are old and so need renovations or knock down rebuild to live with modern amenities. I would appreciate if there were more modern local brunch and coffee places especially after going for a walk or run or dropping kids off at school or working on your laptop at a cafe.
I would choose to live in box hill north over Blackburn (working class and some dodgy crime), box hill centre (chaotic, packed, fast pace) or box hill south (closer to Burwood, more industrial) if you prefer more natural parks and greenery.
I would also suggest that Whitehorse council improve their maintenance gardens and have better looking grounds and faculties instead of hiring contractors who sit around. Some look like they have been trimed or cut in ages. What are our council rates going too?!

Essendon
25th September 2020

"Train delays in the morning. Nice homes. Fancy mother's. Lots of small business owners. Community feel."

Nice family area, old homes need alot of renovation though. Certain pockets have nice leafy trees, parks for kids to run and play and bike. Lots of dog walkers.
Very family oriented. Mother's seem to be dressed up to the 9's here in Aus labels for some reason. Always skinny jeans and heels and a Gucci/Louis vuitton bag. Alot of them don't work or run their own beauty/photography/health businesses. Becomes a clinquey crowd when you pick them up from schools in their BMW. The dad's are all business owners who have their own car mechanic, restaurant, dry cleaner , fitness gym, real estate, builder business it seems. It feels like sandrigham meets port melbourne crowd.

Pet hate are the Train station not good- too many delays. Always packed. If you work in the CBD expect to catch early train otherwise too packed and can't even get in.
Driving to the CBD is bad if you go through Monee ponds or Flemington in peak hour. Be warn trams will delay you to work bcoz they stop at every stop all the way down. I do wish there was a variety of cuisines restaurants and more modern/loft brunch cafes though instead of the usual italian/pasta restaurants. Moonee ponds has more diverity restaurants.
