"Langwarrin"

The bus service here is awful, in some areas there is only one bus to Frankston every hour and you get thrown around and left feeling nautious - the closest station is Frankston and you will find getting there and onto a connecting train and back challenging with lots of delays and long waits. Parking at the station fills up fast, making driving to the station and catching the train not a great option either. But, even though its a long nauseating bus ride, it's only a short drive to Karingal or Bayside shopping centres and the beach.

There are a few nice parks with play equipment, but not a lot else to offer kids. I worry about snakes, there are a lot around and there have been fatal incidents with dogs. The neighbours mostly keep to themselves, but there are a lot of irresponsible pet owners and their barking dogs around and those that play loud music late into the night. The weather here is cold and often quite windy. Sure it's nice but there is not really anything to do here.

You can rent nice newish 2 bedroom unit for just under $300/week.
Pros
  • Neighbours keep to themselves
  • Mostly quiet
  • Close to the beach
Cons
  • Public transport
  • Kind of boring

langwarrinlover My goodness, what a dreary review, why bother? You sound like you need to embrace life a bit more and realise that everything is relative, cheaper rent and more affordable house prices means distance from great transport links, the beach, large shopping and close proximity to Melbourne. Langwarrin is a friendly, local suburb, it has many great schools, kinders and local shopping, it has large football grounds, netball, basketball and lots of activities for children. There are friendly families and lots of older, retired people that create a warmth in our suburb. If you think it's so boring and lacks facilities, then move.

StaceyBradly Some people (and I'd say a lot of people) want more than football grounds and netball or at least be able to travel to other places with things of interest. I included in my review things I wish I'd known before moving here (both positive and negative), for the benefit of others, not for getting your opinion. I actually have moved and my family is better for it, we're 'embracing life' elsewhere, thanks.

JahnnH I moved to Langwarrin four years ago and the place has really grown on me.In general the neighbourhoods are quiet and considerate.It feels like a big camping holiday park.Many people are caravanners.Has an atmosphere all of it's own and wonderful bird life. It has an equestrian park tucked away in the middle where you would least expect one to be. Its proximity to both Westernport and Port Philip appeal to me. I love pier fishing and my hubby loves boat fishing.We are just a jump from many beautiful beaches as well as everything else the Peninsula has to offer in the way of restaurants ,wineries,antique shops,golf courses,gallops,trots or greyhound racing,shopping malls ,markets, drive in cinemas.

topnug
topnug hi Susanellenh, interested to see your comments re Langwarren. Im moving back to melb after 4 horrible years in perth. Lived in Cheltenham and Moorabbin for 10yrs in total. Im a mad keen fisho and spend as much time on PPB and WP as possible so need to be bayside, and my fiancee who a west aussie girl is from country wa in the sth west - margaret river, and is an artist so we are looking for a larger property so we can give her a studio as well as peace and quiet! Perth has become a town of hoons and louts, where parties till the wee hrs on a weekly basis are common place. Having only lived as far south as Cheltenham have no exp of the frankston region other than what you see and read in teh media- so what are the areas of langwarren , frankston sth, etc like?
cheers

susanellenh
susanellenh Hi topnug, I love Langwarrin and Frankston South is lovely too. Langwarrin would be perfect for you as it is so close to the bay and mornington peninsula for fishing and would be great for your fiancee being an artist, many great properties on acreage where you could have an art studio, and peace and quiet. Frankston gets a bad rap by the media, but I have lived either side of Frankston, (Seaford and Langwarrin) and have not had any problems. Of course if you look for trouble you could find it, but that goes for any suburb these days!!! I hope you enjoy your move to Victoria. Cheers.

"Langwarrin is good, but you get snakes everywhere...."

We are moving out of Langwarrin because we are realising our dream of acreage in a rural setting but I would have been more than happy to stay there if I had the room to build a bigger shed!! Of course different people are attracted by different things and for most people the good block size in our area will suit most people. My hobbies include engineering and most houses have ready availability of three phase power should you want to have bigger machines for woodworking or metalworking etc. Langwarrin is quite handy to schools, shopping and virtually all amenities which makes it very attractive for people with young families or older couples rather than younger party animals. However I cannot understand why some reviews here have whinged about snakes. People who live in Australia should expect to see at least one snake in a lifetime. As with any suburb there will be occasional problems with hoons, grafitti and excess traffic but like anything, if you expect someone else to fix it, they won't. The more you speak up and complain to the local council or your local member of parliament the more likely it will be that something will be done about these problems no matter where you live. Such problems are usually caused by government mismanagement and are not specific to a certain location anyway. Overall a good place with good sized blocks, friendly people that is quite affordable for average people.

"Langy Lifestyle"

A true example of the sought after Aussie suburb - the only drawback being the distance to Melb CBD, flip side being the closeness of Mornington Peninsula, Phillip Island, etc.
Very high Australian culture - not a high mix of other ethnic races. Wonderful schols

"A Great Place to Live....but"

We have lived in Langwarrin for around 15 years on both sides of Frankston - Cranbourne Road. This area has some great assets including parks, shopping centers, medical facilities and proximity to the greater Mornington Peninsula with all of its attractions such as beaches, wineries and restaurants. Being a boatie I love tha fact that we are close to both bays. The people are friendly and there is a huge number of young families which gives the place a nice feel. We have a nice blend of rural and suburban life style and there is still a bit of a village feel to the place despite the huge growth that has been happening. The area is still very affordable. We do however lack dining out options in the area and only have the one pub (as good as it is). We need to face facts though. We do have a problem with graffiti and vandalism and the volume ebbs and flows generally around school holidays. I personally hate graffiti and make a point of constantly pushing the issue with Frankston Council and local members. The fact is that nothing will be done about it unless residents get off their butts and lobby Council and others to get tough on the half wits that do it. Report it the minute that you see it and hold Frankston Council accountable to get it removed faster than they usually do. Unfortunately the worst thing about Langwarrin is the Frankston Council because they treat Langwarrin as a poor second cousin and generally treat the residents with a fair dose of contempt. They have a view that Langwarrin is ok for industrial development, particularly along the McLellan Road precinct and in the green wedge area. Residents need to be watchful of some of their most recent decisions regarding Langwarrin and make a point of getting involved with local councilors to keep them on their game. Having said all of that this is a great place to live and we will not be moving until we are carried out.

"A great Peaceful and Safe place for retirees to live when downsizing."

My husband and I moved to Langwarrin a year ago to be nearer to family and grand-children.
We have settled and just love the area and the numerous benefits of living here.
All services are closeby ..Drs Hospitals Transport Churches Schools.
Surrounded by Parklands and Shopping Centres plus Beaches nearby.
The people are friendly and polite and respect privacy.
Safe and secure paths for walking with pets and children in strollers.
The area has character and the East Link Extension will be a bonus for travellers.

"Fantastic lifestyle, close to all amenities without the huge price tag"

We moved here from the west side of the city nearly a year ago and the location is much better south east. There are great access links to the city but also to Chadstone, Southland and all the Mornington Peninsula has to offer. The beach is a short drive and the semi-rural nature of Langwarrin is great for kids. There are plenty of schools, shops and medical facilities within walking distance. The cost of houses is much cheaper than Frankston and the general feeling of the suburb is much nicer. Mt Eliza and Mornington shopping precincts are close buy also. There is vandalism in all areas, the trendy suburb we moved from was not short of this either. There is no industrial feel over this side which is one thing that my husband and I hated about the west. All in all a fantastic move!

"UNDERRATED"

We purchased our first home in Langwarrin almost 4 years ago and have not looked back. As a couple in our late twenties seriously looking at starting a family this area is the perfect place, with numerous child care facilities, a wide range of schools, public transport at your door step, plenty of general stores and supermarkets, gorgeous parklands and easy access to main roads heading towards the Mornington Peninsula and to Melbourne CBD, Langwarrin is definitely underrated in terms of lifestyle.

Before moving to Langwarrin we had heard reports of too many young kids and disturbances within the suburb but In the four years of living in the area we have had nothing but friendly neighbors, lots of doggy friends for our dog to play with in the parks and an all round happy suburb.

"A lovely quiet and leafy suburb"

Moved here 6 months ago and we love it! The people are very friendly and we have wonderful neighbours. We moved from an area that we loved and lived in for 23 years but moved to be closer to the water. We were worried that we would not like it as much, but we do! It is a lot quieter here as where we lived was surrounded by major roads. We love the fact that it is also a few degrees cooler here too than our old neighbourhood. We also like the fact that we are in easy access of the city etc. We plan to stay here for a long time.

"living in langwarrin"

I have lived here in langwarrin for 4 years and have noticed the increase in graffitti, hoons driving around, there is always a loud party going on most weekend with no consideration for the neighbours. i dont put my bins out now till the morning they are due to go out as there is always one or two feral kids kicking them over. when i first brought here i thought it would be a nice area. i have been severely disappointed in the langwarrin high school (EMC) they have no consistancy in teachers, and no teachers have the oomph to stand up to the ferals that go to that school. the image is one thing, but reality is another. if i could afford to leave the area i would.

pablo069 I live next to boggy creek and have had one tiger in 3 years, some nieghbours have had 2 or 3 each year. ours was on dusk and about 2 hrs after watering the garden. That was the mistake. the 09/10 summer was very hot and dry, the smell of water atracts not just snakes but also their prey. we found that keeping the home free of food for samll rodents and watering in the early morning has helped. contary to popular beleive snakes are very active at night especially dusk, we found that watering in the very early morn to be less atractive to snakes than watering at night. If it was'nt for our dog i would'nt really care to much about snakes, although tigers can be aggresive. we caught our visitor and relocated it away from homes. they do play an important role in nature.

"Not to bad, but problems"

One word of caution dont buy acreage around north rd area, floods and snakes a major issue, we bought around 1 year ago and have huge problems with tiger snakes, we will be selling soon, other than that langwarrin itself is an ok area to live, good acces to freeways, karingal just down the road

"Vivi Court"

Great for Kids really.
Really close to shopping centre (Coles)
Very Narrow street.
Internet is only ADSL as pair gains (Shared copper wiring between two houses, and not one each)
also on a RIM.
TERRIBLE mobile phone reception (For anything other than Telstra)
Relatively laid back neighbours
Depending on house, may not be built to the best standards ;)
Kids will ransack cars if left unlocked!!!
Not a bad place, I know this sounds as though a negative review but best you know these things!

"Langwarrin, a great place to live!! Trimble Drive/Natalie Court area"

We live in a brilliant part of Langwarrin, it is quiet, the neighbours are friendly without being overbearing and people care about their homes. We love knowing the people in our area are security conscious but aren't 'nosey neighbours.' Yearly court parties are a great way of keeping in touch. There is very little hoon behavour in our quiet court and no problem at all with gangs of teenagers roaming the streets.
We have lived here for nearly 5 years and love the peace and quiet, minimal traffic and noise and great places to walk alone or with the dog. Having a 5 minute trip to the beach is great as is the flora and fauna park just down the road.
Overall we feel incredibly lucky to live in a quiet, friendly neat environment as we moved from the country and were genuinely scared about horror stories of traffic/gangs/graffiti/annoying or rude neighbours, none of that has been a problem for us at all.
Steadily rising house prices is also a huge bonus, it is nice to know moving to the area has paid off financially as well as in terms of lifestyle.

"Once was peaceful - moving on"

Have lived here 22 years after building our first home because of lovely quiet area and vicinity of everything
Sad to say i agree with many of the other views and now are leaving the area for a more enjoyable and quieter sea change area with my business
Unfortunately Graffiti and Hoons seem to be a part of our lives now who knows what we should do.
With our teenagers now grown out their cocoons it all comes down to good parenting and appropriate understanding of their generation as was the case when we were all that age
Langwarrin though still has ambient areas if you look for them

"Great place to live on acres. Rural but close to everything"

We have lived here for 11 years and would not move. Compared to other Melbourne suburbs Langwarrin is still well priced for what you get. I travel all over Melbourne for my job and other more expensive suburbs have grafitti and teenagers roaming the streets. Not to mention hoom drivers which are more prevalent in the northern suburbs.
We have never experienced any problems whilst out and about at night in Langwarrin
Close to the peninsula and beaches. Love coming home from other parts of Melbourne. Leafy, quiet, clean and great fresh air.

"So sad to see a suburb go to the dogs :("

It is terribly disappointing to see this once peaceful suburb turn into another version of Carrum Downs. We lived in a newer part of Langwarrin close to the pony club. I have called the police three times in the past 18 months re teenage gangs vandalising property in my street and an accident by a hoon (in all cases they responded too late eg 1hr after call). We sold earlier this year because of hoon activity and our house had the master at the front. It is starting to feel unsafe. The Council has been working very hard to clean up graffiti but they don't seem to be doing too much toward preventing it. The Carrum Downs Police station is due to open this year but I doubt it will have much effect.

"Beautiful one day, covered in graffiti the next."

We have been here for about 18 months. I agree with the comments about graffiti. We live in Kelly Drive and came home to find the gutters had been tagged out the front of our house. Our back fence is regularly tagged as are all the fences around us.

We moved here from Frankston and I have to admit it is nicer to be in and nicer to look at, with less traffic. On top of the graffitti you have a lot of idiot P platers doing burnouts at all hours of the day, on main roads, side streets and even in their own driveways. They can be quiet noisy & dangerous. With little kids playing in our yards, it makes it even more stupid.

All in all, we like it and you will too, but there are far too many teenagers with nothing to do but ruin other peoples property and ruin car tyres.

"Good, Leafy suburb with some minor problems"

The graffitti of late has been by some Sudonese youth living in the commission home area near Quarry Rd. Thank you Mr Rudd!!! The tag "SUDO" had been tagged everywhere but has since been cleaned. Not meaning to generalize and I am far from racist and I am sure that the parents are nice people but they need to control their Children!!!
Neighbourhood watch needs brought into action!! If people see youth up to no good call the police and stop this youth destroying our lovely suburb that we call home!! Carrum Downs/Langwarrin Police station will hopefully be open this year sometime, Lets hope they can make a difference and catch these buggers so we dont end up a suburb like Dandenong!!

I have lived in Langwarrin for 26 years
Lovely suburb, semi rural with everything close by, has two of the best Public Primary schools in Melbourne but desperately needs another high school in the Zone

"The truth is somewhere in between"

After a mixture of reviews, i thought i would put forward an honest point of view after living here for over 20 years. First off there are definately some issues with gangs of teenagers, there is always graffitti around the place and bus stops are regurarly smashed along with shop windows. This is a fact, however langwarrin in general has been a great place to live for the past 20 years, i have made some good friends and resale values have been good, i would not consider the area to be unsafe as i have felt quite comfortable since i have been here, if we could just get rid of the hooligan element it would be perfect.

pablo069 Dear penpstop, I agree with most of what you say. However i am a trades man whom does a lot of work around Hampton,Brighton, sandringham etc and i can tell you that the bus stop windows are often smashed and there are also gangs of teenages allover the FACT is it doesn't matter were you live the aforementioned problems exist. I just don't see why we should be posting negative comments on a blog read by god knows how many people. I often wonder how many potential buyers have decided not to buy in langwarrin based on what they read in this blog?? Less buyers = less demand = lower selling prices. No my home is not for sale.. But i would like to see langwarrins home prices reach their potential.

pablo069 Let me get this right. According to your review we have no neighbourly spirit,nightlife,health and fitness facilities,Internet access,peace & quite,is not safe & sound,is full of pests & rodents,poor resale value,no medical facilities,no child care facilities no power,water or gas, no where to eat out,no where to shop,no mobile phone or pay t.v reception traffic snarls all over the place, is unclean & not green,cost of living is unbearable,there are no schools or public transport,local government is non existent, and there are no parks and gardens. The fact that you bought a house here(which i doubt) just goes to show your level of intelligence most people do a bit of research before spending hundreds of thousands of dollars but research requires brains but as your review suggests you don't have to many of them. As i said to the other Pratt whom gave a review?? similar to the dribble you wrote. I have a Ute & a 7x5 trailer i will gladly help you move to a more appropriate place for you and your mate, Say frankston north. I'll even do it for free. simply because i don't want people like you living in langwarrin

"Its ok, but lots of problems"

Have lived in langwarrin and worked here for a long time, lots of teenagers, graffiti and glass breakages, vandalism, dont feel to safe walking around at night especially friday and saturday nights ( dont go near the pub after dark ) Moderately affordable, but the trade off is the gangs of teenagers drinking, shouting and fighting

You're certainly not living in Langwarrin with a review like you've written, and whilst you're certainly entitled to your opinion, the reality/facts are nothing like what you've claimed them to be.

I agree with the other comment. Maybe you're taliking about Frankston North?

anitat
anitat wow some negative comments kinda ruined all the great things said about Langwarrin on both sides, if you read the lastest newsletter this week from one of the local schools the original comment might actually have some substance, if you drive past the glass bus stops you will notice broken glass from kids who have thrown beer bottles at it and smashed the bus stop glass, only people living near the pub would be affected by the hoons but there definitely is a teenage problem down the cranbourne frankston rd, graffiti has improved but can still be seen on sign posts, peoples fences, the langwarrin park entry wall, and a few shops, every 2nd weekend you will see the frankston council van pull up to all the affected areas and people on PD jumping out to clean the walls. On the flip side of the original comment to give all areas a low rating only shows a huge grudge on that persons part to Langwarrin because of their experiences, most people would realise this without provoking a response to substantiate that persons claims.
There are many people from all walks of life in Langwarrin from singles, familys, strugglers, and more fortunate, and we all experience different things in our surroundings, therefore everyone is entitled to their opinion whether it is good or bad, if you take it personally you shouldnt.
Langwarrin is a very friendly place, and as per usual as in any group, may it be a classroom group to a suburb or country, just a small amount of people cast a bad image that labels that whole group in general. People are just Human and things aren't all Rosey even in the best of environments, but most of us try to do our best, we go home to ideally enjoy it, luckily most of us do in Langwarrin, for those unfortunate not to, I hope they do one day.

JackMoon AnitaT is right on the money and made good comment on Langwarrin. Let's face it, I don't think anyone could even name just 1 suburb that doesn't have some graffiti or the occasional drunken goon . 'Lang' is a good place to live, close to schools, shopping centres, freeways and the beach. Best of all, it's still affordable but not for too long. The about to be constructed Frankston bypass will make it a 50 minute trip to Melbourne using Eastlink. Housing values should rise at that time.

margvic
margvic I cannot believe some of the comments made here about Langwarrin and the mentality of some of the people who are leaving such comments. Anitat is on the money....having lived in the area for over 20 years, I have seen many changes.

As Langwarrin grows, so do some of the problems, but to the credit of the Frankston (and mind you in hurts to give council any credit) and other authorities, most of the problems are rectified quite quickly and some can't drunken louts being one. They are a part of life and so you will find this in every suburb, city and country. Given all the negatives, Langwarrin is a great place to live and will continue to be for a long time to come.

Comments like those from pablo069, Marclau and trumpet are not helpful, in fact, unnecessary. One can refute someone else views without making gutter comments. helloeverybody's comment is unjust as it makes Langwarrin out to be the 'Bronks' of America. After 20 years, you grow with the suburb and you make adjustments to the changes that occur. Anitat has a handle on this as does JackMoon.

We all have a right to say what we think but before doing so, look at the bigger picture and give a balanced opinion rather than a one-sided one.

Marclau
Marclau I can also be very civil but when comments are unfair, unjustified and plain bashing, then I voice my opinion. perhaps I was a little harse.

But the fact remains, Langwarrin is a great suburb, being an I.T manager and a property developer, I suggest people who do not know a suburb perhaps spend a little money and get a demographic report about Langwarrin. Reports from RP data and the like will uncover that we are predominately a white collar/self employed suburb where average family income is $76,000 and well above the state average. My income like Pablo is well over $200K also.
Furthermore, a lot of the vandalism is from through traffic of loffers passing through Langwarrin.
I agree with Pablo69 on this that having a go at having a ute and trailer is pure stupidity from Helloeverybody part.

What is even more funnier, is that the negative comments made were from those that no longer live here!!!! I go to the pub every fortnight and never had a problem........never seen a problem other then the odd idiot making a fool of himself and then you find out he is not from Langwarrin in the first place.

pablo069 Hi all, I Would like to make one last comment about the few (very few) of these so called langwarrin residents. If as you say you do and own a home in langwarrin?? Why on earth would you want to run the suburb down? after all there are quite a few people who read these blogs so in affect all you are doing by badmouthing an excellent place to live is dragging down your own? house price. the way i see it is these people don't live here or are extremely unintelligent. May i suggest both....

Regards Pablo.

johnhtv
johnhtv I dont live in Langwarrin but I would still buy as the comments made about the suburb basically can be said about all suburbs anywhere, however it is annoying to find certain people having to butter themselves up with their supposed job and income status, I imagine for that amount of money they wouldn't have time on their hands to waste on a forum which no serious buyer would take notice of anyway. When I was reading some of the comments I seriously thought how weird for people to go off in a tangent just because someone doesnt like where they live, I suggest that Hellotoeveryone invite Pablo and Marcau to stay with him or her for the week but I guess Hello is too busy at work or has better things to do, than irritate the shits out of readers by their repitious rubbish.

I am sure for Chief Pablo of Langwarrin and Hyawotha that this will not be their " final word" as they dont seem to realise that they are the ones who have given this particular thread a bad taste

PindaraCave
PindaraCave I think that is a bit unfair johnhtv,

I suspect Pablo was simply showing that he has earning capacity and the reason why he has a trailer. I dont' think it was showing off in anyway either.

I recently moved to Pindara and love the area.

Yes, perhaps a few minor issues but nothing as bad as has been mentioned.

I guess people become passionate about their area and that is simply what is coming through in this forum. Your are right in that people to make comments when they dont even live in the area and Marclau hit it spot on with his/her comments about the passing traffic with Langwarrin located in between 2 other suburbs........

However, we have only been here 18 months, we love it and feel totally safe including our young 4 children. Thats why we picked Pindara.

I also dont get why people would run down their own suburb so badly as some have done. I feel they simply dont live here and have become a tad upset that they dont.......:)

Although perhaps a bit harse marclau with your neanderthol lines, I thought they were pretty funny and decided to take on the theme in my forum name..........hope you dont mind....:)

"Pure Satisfaction!"

My partner & I bought a house in Langwarrin approx 18months ago. Our house is 20 y/o, only ever owned by 1 owner but, AMAZING! it shows that people have taken pride in their properties in this suburb in times before & current.

We quite often visit the local Pub "Langy, Beretta's, Langwarrin pub" Its fabulous. Child friendly, Great food, Awesome for a dance on a Friday or Saturday night to a talented local band, not to mention the Sunday sesh's on the balcony with local DJ's.

Langwarrin bursts with a friendly atmosphere, happy families riding bikes & taking pets for walks. It boasts everything that a family is searching for.

Although as others have said there is a bit of graffiti happening in the area, it is cleaned weekly and never left months on end.

I love it here... and i am originally from the Gold Coast where they say 'Its perfect one day & better the next".

I cant recommend Langwarrin enough for young families or executive couples looking to start a family. Its a perfect community!

margvic We have lived in Langwarrin for over 20 years and the problems associated with this area is certainly not graffiti. Yes there are lots of teenagers in the area as it is primarily a second home area, an area for growing families. When comparing with surrounding areas ie. Karginal, Frankston, Cranbourne, Langwarrin is more geared to family life and is enjoyed by many with the accessibility to many reserves, shopping centres (Langwarrin itself has 2), many schools, public transportation and proxmity to beaches down the peninsula. Two freeways service Langwarrin as well as the Nepean and the Princes Hwy. All in all, it has the perfect feel in bringing-up your children. Langwarrin is still growing with many new developments coming online, so Langwarrin can only get better as time moves on.

mrjefs I agree great family living, close to good resources, house values are stable....I have noticed the annoying problem of graffiti in the area, this is not frequent, but is certainly a problem that Frankston Council needs to try and resolve, we have lived in the area for a more than 10 years and would reccommend living here.

"Langwarrin is a great place"

We have bought and sold x 3 in Langwarrin, our first and 2nd house off Warrandyte rd sold for a 100% profit, we were happy with the location however being our first house we decided to upgrade to a bigger one, therefore we bought in Pindara, at that stage land prices for those days were affordable however above average but we expected that because we understood it was and is a prestigious estate, the houses were built, the land space was huge, and all the neighbours new, fresh and friendly. We enjoyed the location being close to the main roads, and gateway shopping centre only a walk away. Walks around the estate are lovely as well, with some of the best houses in Langwarrin surrounding us. Minor but frustrating things that did annoy us was the oval which we thought would be a plus turned out to be a minus, with the noise from sporting activities and club functions becoming quite annoying, the one entrance didnt bother us at all, as it does not have the high traffic flow, having no highspeed broadband was upsetting considering most of langwarrin had it at that stage. Because we bought in Pindara early on in the development we did make a tidy profit, I believe the house prices are rightfully deserved as most land was not cheap, most houses are very modern and nice, let alone priced on the above average scale than most, not only that the whole of Langwarrin was and is becoming less affordable, so you cannot expect a "prestigious estate" to not go up whilst a 20 yr old home orginally costing under $100,000 can now fetch an average of $400,000.

We are currently in Langwarrin Park, and feel at home in this area, it is low key, has great walks, supermarkets, 24hr gym, Health and Beauty therapist, doctors, and all the convenience stores merrely across the road, some very nice homes, the best part is we are close to one of the best schools I know. Langwarrin Park primary has the resources we believe shadow some private schools, we considered Haileybury, Casey Grammar for our children, but we highly reccommend LPPS for the great education, friendly principal, teachers, parents and children

I do agree with a previous comment about graffiti, I have noticed it has got better, but it was a problem that I havent seen as bad before, this would be reflected only towards a small minority of idiots however, as the kids in general are well behaved and decent just like people in general in Langwarrin.

We will be here hopefully for a while longer as it is a great place to make friends with similar interests, most homes are well cared for, we love the beachs close by, freeways access is great to get to work, plus with the new mornington freeway in development we feel prices will rise even more once completed. Besides the demand for houses in Langwarrin sometimes does not meet the supply, you will always have someone interested in buying a house here.

margvic You Cannot Lose Living In Langwarrin.

I have lived in Langwarrin Park for over 20 years and about to move on. I have noticed alot of changes over the years, some good, some bad. The variety of shopping & sports facilities, schools, and public transport in the area cannot be faulted.

Graffiti has always been a minor problem but is very low key compared to surrounding suburbs. Once the widening of the Cranbourne-Frankston Rd was completed, the traffic flow in the area has been smooth, but with the installation of traffics lights between Warrandyte Rd and Centre Rd has caused alot more traffic flow through Langwarrin Park with annoying speed humps being implemented. Pindara Estate may be up market but it doesn't have the same family atmosphere of Langwarrin Park. The one entry/exit they have is a bonus, but despite the drawbacks mentioned regarding Langwarrin Park, I would rather live there. Housing is alot more affordable, yes it is older than Pindara but a very friendly, quiet place to live.

A choice of freeways to get you to and from the city, easy access to the Mornington Peninsula and the Sorrento-Queenscliff ferry if you decide you want to visit the otherside of the bay. Langwarrin's popularity as always been stable where at the moment, demand and supply are practically equal, so your house will always find it's buyer.

Prices will continue to increase with the influx of new infrastructure and we will then find demand will definitely outstrip supply.

Marclau I agree with what most have said except one thing. I believe most people are more then friendly in Pindara. The women in our street meet once a month for coffee night and we have a large Xmas street party each year. I now of another street in Pindara where this is also the case, so yes, I believe Pindara is very friendly.

Sure, because it is somewhat a prestigeous estate, some people will make this go to their head, we had this in Patterson Lakes, but you will find this everyone where prices of homes are higher. Best thing is to leave them in their snoby world and continue to be friendly. We have one in our street. I love it when I wave and they simply ignore me or when one day they respond back I laugh back at them and they then have this confused look on their face.........nah Pindara is good. Langwarrin is good......great place to live and bring up the kids.

I guess we are also lucky cause although close to Lloyd park, we don't hear anything that occurs there. I guess you may suffer if you live at the front of Pindara backing onto the park.

JackMoon I like Pindarra. We considered buying there but purchased in another estate up the road. Pindarra is very nice and the only reason we didn't buy there is the primary school is just around the corner from us.

"Good value for money although pindara estate overpriced."

Having spent all my life in east and sth eastern suburbs, for me langwarrin is positioned quite well. Roughly 1/2 way between Frankston & Cranbourne with the facilities and infrastructure they offer without the stigma. pindara is ,in my opinion, overpriced. Far better value in woodlands or langwarrin park. Only one entry and one exit from pindara (dangerous) and creates congestion with narrow streets inside this rabbit warren.. It seems to me that the only people whom believe they are achieving reasonable capital gain are the residents of pindara, recent sales STRONGLY suggest otherwise when compared to other estates in terms of % of capital gain. Before purchasing in Langwarrin we researched extensively. Pindara is a bit like sandhurst very little capital gain (compared) to other parts. My very firm advice to anyone looking at langwarrin to buy is this. Langwarrin is a fantastic place to live with great schools,child care and reasonably good shopping. The community atmosphere is fantastic but look at either langwarrin park or woodlands estates, By all means look at pindara just to give you an idea. But by all means buy a home in langwarrin it truly is a great place to live.

Marclau
Marclau I strongly disagree. We have doubled our money in the past 5 years so your firm advice with regards to capital gain is flawed. And estate where the homes are on larger blocks and a strong convenant is in force will result in higher $$$. This is the case with Springhill and also Pindara.
Pindara maybe moreso becuase of the convenience of being opposite Gateway Shopping Centre.
You don't need to polute through a car to pick up milk or bread unlike other areas. This, and it's close proximities to schools, buses, church etc makes Pindara an ideal estate. Add to that all the ovals and parkland available to residents in Pindara.
And the idea of only a single entry into the estate stops through traffic coming through making it safer. We have never had any congestion, not in morning nor afternoon peak so not sure where you get that information from........have you lived in Pindara? I guess not!!!
Although I do agree that Langwarrin is a good place to live.

Lucas Having lived in Langwarrin for the past 15 years and having had two properties in the "Woodlands Estate" and one in "Langwarrin Park", I now live in the Pindara Estate. I don't know what "research" you have done but Pindara has outperformed ALL of Langwarrin for capital growth over the past 5 years. The fact it has one entry/exit point is fantastic as only locals who live in the estate use it. Why is it dangerous? There are emergency exit points facing Lorraine Avenue if you need to get out and cannot through the main entrance. You obivioulsy have not lived in Pindara so stop wasting everybody's time and move to Cranbourne if you think it is overpriced! Langwarrin is a great place to live and Pindara makes that even more special.

ReasonableRod
ReasonableRod Dear pablo069,

It appears you a suffering a severe case of sour grapes. It would certainly seem from your review of Langwarrin, that you really would like to live in the "Pindara Estate", but can't afford to, so instead you take the tact of 'well if I can't afford to live there, it must be over priced'. Your advice of minimal capital gain is both rubbish and disappointing. Being in the real estate business myself, I think I and my colleages would know, and as far as the 'one exit and entry' you mention, I'd love to hear how this is 'dangerous?'. I have to agree with the previous two comments, and on top of what they have pointed out, it stops knobs like you trying to cut through to McClelland Drive (therefore making it busier, and more dangerous). So off you go, on your bike to Cranbourne or better still, The Pines.

"Awesome suburb far enough from suburbia yet close to everything"

Lived in Pindara for past 5years and own several other homes within Langwarrin.

It really is a great place and although a few people have said that it has a few teenagers, they are well behaved and many will move out within next few years......

It is a growing suburb with many new estates opening up or being developed.

I like this place better compared to Patterson Lakes where we lives before.
People in Langwarrin just seem more friendly.

"A Big Step up from Frankston, and just next door!"

Having bought and sold several houses in Frankston and a couple in Langwarrin, Langwarrin is far superior as a place for families to live.

Still very near the beach, but feels far nicer than Frankston, and holds it's value very well.

Something should be done against the graffiti vandals yet never seems to. That's about the only thing going against Langwarrin, although is not bad enough to not call this beautiful area 'home'!
