"Hmm"

Some nice old houses, but lots of crime and less than desirable people. Will probably have some decent price increases over the years, but you will need to get lucky to get a street full of people you would want to talk too.

"West Croydon "Heaps Good""

I have lived here for nearly 23 yrs and have seen this suburb grow from a not so likable place , to a place were there is beautiful street cafe's and retro shops,and the wonderful parks where children can play.
The shopping centres that are a stone's throw away,the Entertainment centre , Trams that will take you to the heart of the city and in the not to distant future the beaches of semaphore .The people are friendly and greet you with a smile.
This is a great place to raise a family or sit back and let the world go by without the hussle & bustle knowing you are only 7 minutes to the city.
I live on one of the leafier streets which is fantastic.From the summer shade to the auttum litter of leaves ther is no place i'de rather be than this ever growing
suburb of West Croydon.

"Excellent area. I won't be moving"

i just can't complain.
7 mins train ride to the city, close to the beach and everything from shops, pizza shop, medical centres, pubs and cafes to walk to.

"A top spot recently rediscovered by some"

My sister lived here for a while and it was a great place to visit. Parks, wide streets and old houses made for a very appealing area. The run into the city is fast and there is reasonable public transport. Shops aren't too far away and neither are schools and some reaonable places to get soemthing to eat.

The streets are quiet and tranquil and I think recently it has been noticed as a good place to be. There has been a bit of an injection of new people into the area revitalising it and some older houses and blocks have made way for newer courtyard homes.

I have seriously considered buying in here but now I fear I may have missed the boat. A great place for young families.
