"Best of both worlds"

I've been living in Chadstone for almost 2 year and we love it! Really is the best of both worlds being a quiet peaceful and friendly area with plenty of parks and open green spaces, but also with all the action at Chadstone shopping centre. Great schools and plenty of good childcare centres all around, also close to Deakin and Monash unis and Holmesglen TAFE. We work in the city which is fine as it's only 5 minute walk to the station and 30 mins on train to the city, or we can be on the Monash freeway in just a couple of minutes.

"Great place for family,"

Nice house with evaporating cooling system, a good way to escape hot weather! Also there is a satellate atenna in the backyard, which can receive 30+ Chinese cannels and many other Asian channels. Close to railway stations, parks and restaurant.

"Easy access to the city and with some great local amenities"

This is a great family area. There are parks close by to let them run wild, and to let dogs run and tire themselves out.
Chadstone shops are around the corner so you should be able to get everything you need and then some without any difficulty.
The area is well serviced by public transport, whisking you into the city quickly and efficiently.
There are some reasonable places to get out and have a meal if you want without having to go far. But don't expect a restaurant or cafe on every street corner.
If you want to get out for a night out you may need to go a bit further afield but there are some good places not too far away. Probably more for families and retirees than young couples or singles.
