Once the butt of many a Barry Humphries’ joke, it seems that no one’s laughing about Glen Iris now.

Humphries’ much-loved character, Sandy Stone, was portrayed as a decent but dull pensioner living in Melbourne’s dreary, middle-class, middle ring suburbs.  Fast forward twenty-odd years, and Glen Iris is now dubbed one of the city’s most peaceful and affluent suburbs, bursting with new life.

Yes, it’s ripped down the middle by the Monash Freeway.  And no, it doesn’t have the period streetscapes and shopping precincts of Camberwell and Malvern.  But residents say its appeal lies within its easy reach to the city and its excellent schools and recreational facilities. Not to mention being home to the famous Harold Holt Swim Centre.  It also boasts wide, tree-lined streets and quiet cul-de-sacs, interspersed with plenty of playgrounds and (off-leash dog) parks.

 

Here’s what some of the locals had to say

 

“We love the beautiful leafy streets, the parks, and its proximity to good schools.”.

“It’s not too far from Prahran and South Yarra for a bit of fun!”.

“It’s quiet and safe, so really appealing to young families.”

“It’s just a great place to grow up and raise a family”.

 

Agents say it’s proving to be popular for first home buyers and investors due to its city-fringe location.

That’s why we’ve chosen Glen Iris to build a suite of luxury apartments with ample terraces, underground parking, and premium features and fittings. The block offers a golden opportunity for families, couples, and singles alike to snap up a piece of leafy-green inner Melbourne suburbia.
