"longer's life"

Quiet and cheap to buy good value for money. All the neighbours are well to do. I have gorgeuos view of a farm and fields from my 2nd bedroom window and my units backyard is bigger than most small houses backyards Iin pakenham. And the train is in very easy reach.

However i am happy to see i am not the only one feeling unwelcome as a ' newcomer' everyone is very friendly but its now coming across as forced suspicious politeness from some people. Definitley very different attitudes on what constitutes neighbourly appropiate behaviour.

The downsides are the lack of facilities like a gym, highschool, major supermarket, bank and needing to drive to other suburbs which i find the suburbs biggest downfall as it is so disconnected from everyything. Id really like it to join up more with droiun and warragul or bunyip and improve its facilities though i expect long term residents want to maintain the country simple life and peace.
Cons
  • Long time residents and new comers tend to keep to themselves and tend to have different views on how things should be
  • Used to be quite small and long time locals I feel dislike the growth of the area
