"Best of all worlds for us"

15 minutes to the city, 10 minutes to the beach, never more than a 10 minute drive to well, almost anything. BUT a beautiful peaceful suburb with most streets quite and well kept. Lovely older homes. Many have been or are being renovated. The train to the city is close by. Community centre is nearby. We have lived here for 10 years with two children, now in their teens. It has suited all facets of our family life. And yes, as Beenie says, it is a little secret gem.

"Shhh, its our little secret!"

We stumbled across Cheltenham 5 years ago when we bought our home. It is a wonderful suburb, so quite and peaceful, so many gorgeous homes to admire on walks. We like to call it "our secret suburb" as not many people seem to know about it or only think of the cemetary or racecourse development but it is so much more. It is especially nice near Alberton Oval and around the train line.

"I'm glad I discovered Cheltenham!"

I feel pretty lucky we found this place in Cheltenham a year ago. Our street is great, so quiet, and we have gotten to know all of our neighbours well, even the rear ones. If you are renovating it's great as Bunnings is very close and there are loads of hire places in the area. You can go to local footy or AFL easily.
There are so many nice old houses that are being renovated, and the streets are looking more and more beautiful all the time, I think Cheltenham is a bit of a sleeper, a best kept secret perhaps.
