Located 20km south east of Melbourne’s CBD with a population of 38219 (2006 census). Glen Waverley is popular with families – largely owner occupied with detached homes on large blocks of land.  The green leafy suburb attracts families with a wide range of schools, shops, parks, and sporting facilities. Glen Waverley Secondary College is one of the largest Government schools in Victoria and buyers pay significantly more to locate within the school zone. A large number of Asian migrants are attracted to the location and this is reflected in the retail land scape. Glen Waverley has a wide range of Christian Churches and large shopping precinct which attracts a lot of traffic to the area from Neighbouring suburbs.

House Styles:

House styles in Glen Waverley are mostly post war (1960’s & 70’s brick veneer) However these are gradually getting replaced or renovated with larger homes – grander in design. The Glen Waverley Secondary School zone is highly sort after and as a consequence development of town houses (mostly double story in style) are becoming increasingly popular (especially with the incoming Asian population who like to purchase ‘new’). Smaller villa units are common (typically 6 – 8 on a block) and blocks of flats are located around the shopping districts and public transport hubs. Expect to see high rise developments increasing in Glen Waverley and surrounds as the Government 2030 infrastructure plan takes shape.
