Living in Hallam / Doveton / Eumemmerring

The Doveton/ Eumemmerring neighbourhood has evolved from its former housing commission status to a fast growing, affordable option for the first home buyer and rental investor and developer to get a foothold into a market where it is possible to establish profitable returns.

Largely the area is filled with plain but soundly-built post war homes in a diversity of materials: brick, concrete and weatherboard. Most are on substantial allotments. A majority of these older homes are now being renovated and subdivided or demolished and replaced with 2 new units, making a once old area a place to now find newly renovated homes or new units.

Hallam’s allure is its affordability, making it attractive to many first home buyers and investors on a budget who are looking to enter the home market in a traditionally suburban area that doesn’t have the dense, cosmopolitan population of Dandenong.

The quiet suburb offers both primary and secondary schools and is literally just a few moments drive or bus trip down Frawley Rd to all of Dandenong’s offerings or a 3 minute drive in the other direction along Princess Hwy to the massive Fountain Gate Shopping Centre.
