"Prestigious Properties & High Class"

Golden mile at its finest!! Serpells Road is know to all the local residents as the must live destination in the area!!! Surrounded by prestigeous and million dollar properties, it's not a surprise that everyone wants to live here. With two major primary schools (Serpell Primary School & St. Charles Borromeo Primary School) on this road, you pretty much all amenities close by.There is a bus that runs along Serpells Road and takes you to the train station which then takes you to the CBD. All allotments are at least an acre and the land itself is worth A LOT of money! Build your dream home and make millions! It is the place to be in terms of raising a family and future.

"Superior Serpells Rd"

Serpells Rd has long been a popular Templestowe address namely for its proximity to The Pines shopping centre and schools as well as buses along Reynolds, Williams and Blackburn Rds. It is also the gateway to some of Templestowe's finest addresses.
The first section of Serpells Rd winds over Andersons Creek Rd and Blackburn Rd past Landscape Drive Reserve to Serpells Primary School. This is a high-set location with many cul-de-sacs stemming from it. There are views and modern homes all along this section.
A t-intersection and a right-hand turn takes you to the next section of the road where coveted addresses such as Jacov Gardens, Sarah Crescent and Church Rd exist.
If you follow this road you'll get to Templestowe Village shopping centre and recreation complex.
So you can see how vital this road is to the the lifestyle so enjoyed by Templestowe residents.

"Great street in Templestowe, highly recommended"

Serpells Road in Templestowe has a great feel to it, great neighbours, people walking their dogs all the time, and best of all, the house prices have gone up significantly along here. Mostly due to the high quality of new houses that have gone up over the past few years. Can't go wrong here.

"RIght in the heart of Templestowe's golden mile"

Serpells Road is famous for it's large acre blocks with multi-million dollar homes. Having lived in the area for a long time it really is the place to be with land now exceeding $1 million per block.

As is typical of large acre blocks, neighborly spirit is not the best, in fact most of us don't see our neighbors. Not that we wouldnt like to, just that the blocks are so far apart and most people seem to be so busy.

Buses run down Serpells Road so public transport is not a problem, an Ruffy Park is walking distance providing a great place to walk the dog.

Not cheap, but if you can afford it provides a much better lifestyle alternative to some of the more up market options in Toorak and Canterbury.
