Located 13km south east of melbourne with a population of 8232. (2006 census) Murrumbeena sits tightly in-between the suburbs of Carnegie and Oakleigh, yet maintains a distinctive feel of it’s own.  Beautiful period properties and large blocks of land make it popular with families.  The railway station and small shopping strip do little to pull traffic away from Carnegie’s shopping strip near by, or the Chadstone Shopping centre which is also closely located.  Neerim Road is Murrumbeena’s main street over which the railway runs.  It’s not unusual to get caught at the boom gates for long periods as traffic cuts through the suburb.  The tree lined streets and park lands give it an attractive residential atmosphere popular with buyers.

House Styles:

House styles are predominately period Edwardian or Victorian double fronted detached, brick or weatherboard homes, on full blocks roughly 600sqm + and fetch high prices. Some post war properties and newer homes also feature in the suburb, however it’s the period styles that attract the highest demand. Town houses on smaller blocks of roughly 400sqm – both single and double story – are also prevalent. Apartment blocks are common around the train station and shopping strip.
