Being located almost 30km away from Melbourne’s busy Business District might not seem like much of an advantage, but the stunning suburb of Rowville certainly makes it one. It’s situated on the eastern side of Melbourne and was named after the first family to settle the area – the Row family. They did so in 1882 and their home (now called Stamford Park) can still be seen from the local highways.
This suburb is one of the largest in the East of Melbourne, with just over 35,000 residents – but with property prices falling and local authorities investing millions of dollars into renovations and developments; there genuinely has never been a better time to buy. But why might you want to move to a location like this? Well, here are just a few things that spring to mind.
What will you find in Rowville?
As mentioned above, the local authorities (namely Knox Council) have invested huge sums into renovating and remodelling the suburb. As a result, new homes are popping up every few months and prices are now at an all-time low. We’ll cover their average values below, as for now - we’d like to tell you about what you can expect and enjoy in this suburban region.
If you are in need of education for your children, then you will find four local primary schools – all of which are funded by the government. There is also a very popular college (Rowville Secondary College) which can educate children from 11 and older. There are also a host of bus services, but the region itself is pretty vehicle-dependent, which is why expansions were undertaken to ensure that all residents and visitors could access the suburb via the nearby highways and freeways.
So, what about the property values?
To buy a three bedroom home in Rowville, you should expect to spend about $700,000 to $765,000 AUD. This will depend on where and when you buy, but with most homes boasting stunning and often traditional architecture – is there any wonder why so many people are flocking to the region?
