Living in Keysborough
As part of the municipality of City of Greater Dandenong, Keysborough has undergone the most unprecedented growth in recent years and is probably the only suburb in the area that is still growing in size as well as in the number of homes. The contributing factor is the market gardens of yesteryear transforming into the exclusive, highly-sought housing estates of today.
The appeal to Keysborough largely stems from the diversity of property styles on offer, with something to suit every budget and accommodation requirement. Entry level homes being the 1970’s style cluster-style townhouses, through the 1960’s and ’70’s 13 square, 3 bedroom brick veneer homes up to brand new homes in the newly established lake and park covered estates behind the exclusive Haileybury College where all homes post-date 2000 and range in size, commonly offering between 30 and 45 squares. The area is still growing.
Such diversity and in a location that offers the suburban lifestyle yet with the beach literally just a 12 min drive down Springvale Rd, golf courses, the recently revamped Parkmore Shopping Centre and numerous public and private schools it’s appeal is strong.
