KEW

Get to know
the area

Prestigious Kew with its leafy green streets, stately homes and esteemed schools is one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs – it’s an (inner-city) suburban dream. Living is luxurious and endlessly comfortable, and while it might be rather quiet come nightfall, postcode-proud locals know that it doesn’t get much better than this.

Lifestyle

Stately Kew has always been rather on the fancy side. A historically affluent suburb, everything, from the homes to the schools, bears the hallmark of wealth and good taste, making it no surprise that this charming locale has long been favoured by the well-to-do.

In the lush and hilly streets of Kew, it’s easy to forget that the bright lights of the CBD and the urban grit of Abbotsford are within easy reach.

 In fact, grit is nowhere to be found in this delightful eastern enclave. Life is good here, with the bustling shopping strip around Kew Junction offering a plethora of dining options and the chance to mingle with like-minded neighbours over lattes and the morning paper or a glass of red or two come nightfall. But that’s about as heady as family-friendly Kew gets when the sun goes down.

Beyond its café culture and prime location, Kew is known as a stronghold of elite schools. You’re not likely to go far here without running into a bunch of bag toting students in pursuit of the nearest tram. Coupled with local favourite Studley Park, a host of golf courses and gorgeous period homes, it’s no wonder that Kew is the hot pick for the city’s wealthier families in search of the good life.

Affluent families line up to call this highly admired suburb home. Drawn in large part by the area’s elite schooling options, they’re equally enamoured of the beautiful period homes, ample parklands, prime location and prestigious postcode (not to mention the impressive golf courses and sporting clubs). Retirees are equally at home in the comfortably luxurious streets. Once people are in they don’t tend to be in a rush to move elsewhere. Ever.
