“double brick, big blocks, and plenty of playgrounds and parks”
With its rolling leafy streets, family-friendly parks and strip shopping, Glen Iris is the perfect setting for a growing family. With large period homes and several pockets to explore on its major thoroughfares of Malvern Road, High Street, Burke Road and beyond, Glen Iris is an undulating suburb with relative proximity to the city. Its biggest claim to fame came in the 1990s when it was revealed as Melbourne’s geographic and demographic centre. Wedged between Camberwell and Malvern, it is within easy reach of schools, Chadstone, the Harold Holt Swim Centre and the Gardiners Creek bike and walking trails.
Median house price is $1778,000 and rental at $705 per week as at March 28th 2019.
You’ll find primarily older and middle-aged people living in Glen Iris, either as couples or with growing children, but younger people enjoy the area too. The population is just shy of 25,000.
Glen Iris has great transport options with a couple of train stations, several tram and bus routes and easy access to Monash freeway entries.
