There are two main shopping hubs in Mount Waverley – Mount Waverley Village shopping centre, situated by the train station and containing mostly grocery and convenience stores along with some clothes shops and fast food centres. And Pinewood Shopping Centre situated in the south of the suburb containing a wider range of stores, coffee shops, and restaurants.
Most properties in Mount Waverley are detached post-war brick veneer houses, which have gradually been updated or demolished and replaced with newer style properties as families have continued to populate the area. In the school zone subdivisions are popular with double story town houses the main property type of choice. The ageing population has ensured 2 bedroom villa ‘down-sizer’ properties have maintained competitive demand. Apartments are found closer toward the transport hubs and shopping districts.
