Located 11km south of Melbourne’s CBD with a population of 4085.  Glenhuntly is the next door suburb its more affluent neighbour Caulfield – which attracts a large Jewish population and multi million dollar property prices.  Glenhuntly has a range of residents – a large number of Asian immigrants rent the flats, villa units and apartments close to the rail station (due to the close proximity to Caulfield East’s Monash University Campus.) However detached housing is expensive, and there is a good balance between renters and owner occupiers who bring up families in the area.

Shopping

The main shopping hub is Glen Huntly Rd which runs between Glenhuntly, Elsternwick and across the Nepean Hwy into Elwood. The strip contains a Safeway super market, grocery stores, small boutique clothes shops along with a range of restaurants and cafes.


House Styles:

Detached housing is period in style and located on larger blocks of land (500-600sqm). Double fronted Edwardian and Victorian style homes are common, along with Art Deco ‘one of a pair’ and Californian bungalows. Flats, villa units and subdivisions are common, and mostly date from the 1970’s onwards. Newer developments (apartments) are popping up on streets near the train station and reflect the growing population this suburb is attracting. Streets are wide and tree lined.
