"Really?"

Can't understand why this is rated as such a great street. Its basically just a road. No special amenities. No great access to transport. No grand treescapes. No beautiful row houses. No special shopping precinct. Its basically a street full of ex-army soldier houses, every one of them almost identical to the next, apart from the block style in-fills. Ordinary, if not ugly street bordering on a very dodgy pocket of Melbourne in the old games village. Sure, its now called 'Ivanhoe' because of a re-zoning 20 years ago, but at its heart its still West Heidelberg

"The New Ivanhoe!"

Ambrose St, Vivian St, Mabel St, Ford St, Bond St, Green St. The streets in this pocket of Ivanhoe provide an amazing opportunity for great value and a wonderful family lifestyle. This little pocket is on the up-and-up and has got to be one of Ivanhoe's best kept secrets. Though recent sales in the area are an indication that people are starting to cotton-on to the value of this beautiful part of Ivanhoe.

"Quiet and Nice Pocket"

Ivanhoe itself is a great suburb, while Vivian Street, in the quiet and nice Southern pocket of the West part of Ivanhoe, is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping strip on Upper Heidelberg Road, yet close enough to be only a short walk away.

You get the best of both worlds in this up-and-coming pocket of Ivanhoe, perfectly suited to young couples, professionals and families with kids. There's an undiscovered-yet-beautiful feel to this South-West pocket of Ivanhoe.

BellyB00 I agree that it is the most affordable part of Ivanhoe. It's a pity the primary school is to capacity as its starting to get hard to get a spot at the school unless you are "in the zone"
