Suburb Story: Surrey Hills

With its leafy streets and verdant gardens, Surrey Hills is practically the archetype of an eastern suburb. Although its style is classically English, Surrey Hills is being brought into the present day.

With its leafy streets and verdant gardens, Surrey Hills is practically the archetype of an eastern suburb. Although its style is classically English, Surrey Hills is being brought into the present day.

Located 11 kilometres from the city, Surrey Hills is positioned centrally within Melbourne’s east, surrounded by neighbouring suburbs Canterbury, Box Hill and Burwood. Its distinctive English character comes not just from its wide tree lined streets, but from its English Counties precinct, with streets baring familiar names like Norfolk, Kent and Essex.

When you think of Surrey Hills, you think of greenery. This comes in part from the lush, well established trees that have been lining the streets for over a century, and peaceful parks and nature reserves like Surrey Gardens, designed by Royal Botanic Gardens designer William Guilfoyle.

With its serene nature and respite from the hustle and bustle of city life, the suburb also acts as a retreat for families. With easy access into the city via Surrey Hills train station, it’s an ideal environment for working families who want more peace and more space.

Schooling options around Surrey Hills are plentiful and high quality, with Surrey Hills Primary School and Our Holy Redeemer School within the suburb and Siena College, Strathcona Girls Grammar School and Kingswood College close by.

‘Surrey Hills was once a dry zone, and so it’s exciting that it now welcomes The Hills Wine Bar on Union Road,’ says Marshall White property manager Tania Smith.

‘Surrey Hills is a sought after area for growing families, with great size properties and a number of excellent schools to choose from,’ says Marshall White property manager Tania Smith.

The media rental price in the area is $665, with properties in the area predominantly showcasing period character and verdant garden surrounds.

The suburb is also increasingly becoming a hotspot for dining. Surrey Hills has been a dry zone in the past, contributing to the wholesome family feel of the neighbourhood, but it is steadily welcoming Melbourne’s renowned bar culture.

The suburb is also a hotspot for Melbourne’s café culture, with local favourites including Reunion Café and ZIMT Patisserie offering tasty treats and delicious coffee.  A thriving retail precinct is also emerging in the area, with specialty shops on Union Road and boutiques on Whitehorse Road.
