A little about: CHELTENHAM
Cheltenham is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located 19 km south-east of Melbourne’s central business district. Its local government area is the City of Kingston to the eastern side of the area’s railway line and Charman Road north, while the City of Bayside presides over the suburb’s western region towards extensive golf links, parks and Port Phillip Bay. At the 2011 Census,
Cheltenham had a population of 20,292.
Cheltenham is a diverse suburb which reaches across Nepean highway heading toward the beach until it reaches the likes of prestige suburbs such as Sandringham. Despite not being exclusively bayside, Cheltenham by all accounts is one suburb out from the bay, with its furthest reaches being a 10 minute drive from suitable swimming areas.
The upside of the slightly more inland nature of Cheltenham when compared to the traditional bayside suburbs comes in Cheltenham’s extremely easy access to arterial roads, linking it to the CBD in a mere 35 minutes by car. All shopping and entertainment needs are easily taken care of by Westfield Shopping Centre which is in the heart of this booming suburb.
Cheltenham station and its shops are stretched down Charman Road with a plethora of schools nearby, whether high-school or primary – even private just 10 minutes away in Mentone. All these features and the future addition of a second ‘Southland’ railway station is certain to generate enormous demand for this suburb in the future, as it already has.
