The origins of Kew date back to the 1840s when it was known as the Parish of Boroondara and it has grown to be one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs with a mix of magnificent Italianate mansions such as Raheen and Burke Hall, and significant Victorian and Edwardian residences gracing large allotments in wide leafy streets. As a consequence, many of these residences now attract some of the highest residential resale values in Melbourne particularly in the Studley Park area and the coveted Sackville Ward. More recently some allotments have been redeveloped into townhouses or duplexes appealing to a newer demographic keen to be close to the Melbourne CBD but also many of Melbourne’s finest schools. Kew’s lifestyle benefits include Kew Junction home to the renowned Leo’s Fine Foods and Recreation Centre, proximity to Richmond and Hawthorn plus a plethora of parklands and the trails bordering the Yarra River.
