We are visiting Melbourne in a few weeks to search for areas to live when we move later this year and despite searching for many hours on the internet still cannot decide what areas to visit. Having said that we have decided we can't go further south than Berwick because of the commuting time into CBD.
Our main requirements would be:
Good Area to live with good primary schools
Nice area - not to industrial/built up
Good selection of Houses within our budget of up to $600,000 - Large Gardens
Near to beach would be nice, but also the hills would be just as nice
Commuting time of less than 1 hour
I am already going to be visiting Berwick and Belgrave as these tick a lot of our requirements, but really would appreciate some thoughts on other areas we could look at.
Also as a lot of my search has been south of Melbourne, would appreciate some thoughts on other areas - maybe North of Melbourne,
