We have about 410,000 - 460,000 to spend. We want 4 beds and 2 living areas. We would rather have a house with space between ours and or neighbors houses. We are considering berwick, narran warren, beaconsfield, officer, rowvillelyndhurst, emmemmerring, pearcedale.. . . . well anywhere in that general area really. Do any of these areas have a nice cafe/shopping scene - other than the malls? Do any of the mall close by have nice outdoor cafe scenes?


We know berwick is nice - although houses are still very close. Can anyone give us any information on the other areas please??? Are any industrial areas, or just plain horrible or dangerous?


What about langwarrin - husband will be working in Dandenong, so we canm consider so many areas!!! We have considered mornington and like it, but would like to consider other areas too. Are the houses in langwarrin all built very close together?


Would greatly appreciate any advice on any of these areas or other areas in similar places


many thanks

All the suburbs you mentioned are nice areas. Property prices are rising, I know in Lyndhurst now they are reaching $750k, but you should still manage to pick up a new build for around $400k. At present though there is no shopping complex (although one is due to be built on Marriott Waters) Lynbrook is lovely, although again prices are rising there, it use to be easy to get a house for around $350k, however, because the school is in high demand and you have the shopping complex and lake etc the price has risen dramatically. If you are looking at a place with cafe/bars then Berwick would probably be your best. Beaconsfield is nice as well as Upper Beaconsfield although again property prices will be rising.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

There's not a great emphasis on cafe culture out in those suburbs but they are all decent places to live. I would avoid Dandenong itself because it is rough and not very safe at night. A shame because it used to be a lovely country town once upon a time. Still good shops there though. If you want a bigger block you might have to look at an older house or further out. You could also look towards Frankston, pretty close to Dandenong with the freeway.
