The Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, especially Canterbury, are complete with historic, period and character filled homes. Canterbury, in the City of Boroondara, located 10 kms from the CBD is no exception and is considered one of Melbourne’s most expensive, luxury and exclusive suburbs.
Along the expansive streets you will find rows of large oak trees, looking their finest in Summer and creating quite an ambiance in the Autumn months as the leaves fall from the trees.
Canterbury is a wonderful area to raise a family, with its close proximity to the train at Canterbury Rail Station on the busy Belgrave and Lilydale train line. Many schools can be found in Canterbury or surrounding areas. Such as the highly regarded public schools, Camberwell High School and Canterbury Girls’ Secondary College. The area also boasts private schools, Strathcona Baptist Girls’ Grammar and Camberwell Grammar School.
Along Canterbury Road there are parks and walking tracks for you to explore and relax in, including Canterbury Gardens and the Anniversary Trail. Canterbury Gardens is located close to Maling Road shopping village and offers picturesque gardens. Each December, Carols by Candlelight is held in this beautiful park with the community attending in support. The Anniversary Trail, which is close to many sites on which we as builders have built hamptons style homes is a perfect space to exercise and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.
Maling Rd offers a quaint shopping strip with a village feel, where you will be able to enjoy a meal, quick coffee or the delights that are offered in this charming shopping precinct. In and around Canterbury, there are numerous businesses dealing in home furnishing and decoration, which you can utilise to furnish and decorate your beautiful and new hamptons style home.
