In Melbourne’s south-east, Ormond, with its beautiful period homes and handy location, is compact and family-oriented. Bordering several high-profile neighbours (Caulfield and Brighton), Ormond offers up a quiet suburban lifestyle, but with all the perks of its much livelier neighbours – beaches, boutiques, and on-trend cafes and restaurants.
Ormond itself is family-friendly with a selection of cafés and shops that run along North Road. It boasts a railway station that connects locals to the city along the Melbourne-Frankton train line and bus services that links to neighbouring suburbs. The highly regarded schools in and around Ormond are a big drawcard for growing families, as are the many sports facilities Melbourne’s south-east is renowned for, such as football, soccer, cricket, tennis, and cycling.
The beautifully maintained heritage homes along quiet streets, complete with manicured gardens and picket fences, are in hot demand as much for their family appeal as for their convenient location. Within 10-minutes locals can either be at Brighton Beach, Chadstone Shopping Centre, Monash University, or Caulfield Racecourse which delights every October during Spring Carnival.
With all this on offer, it’s little surprise that all eyes are on Ormond and the lifestyle it has access to.
