Lakemba

"A great example of Multi-cultural society."

Like many areas of Sydney Lakemba has elvolved over the years with changing demographics & culture to become of of Sydney's most multi-cultural areas. Despite being known as a predominately Muslim area, Lakemba actually does have many cultures living within its suburb boundaries, which show in the style of housing and type of shops in the local shopping strip.

Within Lakemba there are many differing facilities to suit most cultural & religous groups whether they be Muslim or Christian or prefer a secular existance, from schools, worship, and specialist shopping facilites. People are generally accepting of all differences and tolerance is encouraged from local cultural & religious leaders, and practiced by many of the long-term residents. Transport in the area is considered excellent with a great train service & bus service with good frequency and many routes. There are many good neighbourhood parks in the area with good facilities, some recently improved by the local council, no doubt with more to come.

Prices within Lakemba are still quite reasonable to buy, and offer a great investment return - recently in the SMH Lakemba rated as #1 on investment return on a percentage basis.

Passey Avenue

"Great Position"

Passey Avenue has a great position, full of houses ripe for renovation and some that already have.

24 Passey Avenue is one that has been fully renovated from top to bottom. Beautifully rendered and painted in a light cream this house has gorgeous glossy floorboards throughout, a fairly new kitchen that could feature in any home magazine, separate dining area, modern bathroom, three bedrooms & study and a rear garage. Barely a thing to do!

Usually when one or two people start updating and moderning their houses in a street, you'll usually find others shortly follow.

This is a fantasic street, ideally located with a short walk to both the local primary and high school in one direction and short walk to Belmore's busy shopping strip for local gourmet foods, local cafes for lunch and all your other services in Burwood Road. A short walk to the train station too. And not to mention Canterbury Leagues Club with it's many restaurants and entertainments.

If you are interested in buying in Passey Avenue, why not look at http://www.professionalsbelmore.com.au/details.aspx?pid=399085

Belmore

"Belmore - Moving On Up!!!"

Belmore is a up & coming area. It still has the old-fashioned appeal of lots of indivdual shops rather than chain-stores, and this to me means personalised serviced by locals who know and remember you and your preferences when shopping. There are many fresh produce shops - butchers, green-grocers, many bakeries, seafood, specialised boutique supermarkets as well as health professionals, services such Post Offices, Banks, Newsagency, TAB, Solicitors, Hairdressers and light industrial such as mechanics etc. Burwood has also a lot of cosmopolitan eateries, a full range from your local take-away, to intimate cafes to ethnic restaurants. And there are a couple of clubs (Belmore RSL and Canterbury Leagues Club) and pubs. Transport is excellent, there is a train station in the middle of the shopping strip and buses also service Burwood Road.

Canterbury Council is investing big in the local shopping strip. Having already re-paved most of one side of the road in expensive modern large tiles, they are currently renovating the opposite side and also installing outside eating areas and new street furniture - all helping the great cafe culture that is evolving in Burwood Road.

It's not as busy as most inner-city shopping strips - you can safely cross the road - but it's just as good and interesting. The shopping is amazing, the locals really friendly. It's only 10-15 to Roselands or Campsie major shopping centres if you are after a Department Store too, so you do get the best of both worlds.

Watch out, Belmore is making it's mark!

Canterbury Council should also invest in Lakemba shopping strip.
