Ivanhoe – The Leafy Suburb You’ll Never Want to Leave

Only 10km north-east of Melbourne’s CBD, the green and pretty suburb of Ivanhoe is loaded with heritage homes, luxurious mansions, townhouses and chic designer apartments. A well-established, family friendly pocket of Melbourne, Ivanhoe is highly sought after due to its blend of housing styles and facilities – excellent schools, lush parks, a contemporary arts space, a golf course and a quaint shopping strip filled with cafes and boutique stores.

With an abundance of historic character and a village-like atmosphere, it’s easy to see why many people are lifelong residents of this charming suburb. Popular amongst older families, either couples with older children or empty nesters, Ivanhoe’s location makes it a popular choice for mature singles also and its proximity to fantastic schools appeals to families with young children too. A welcoming, safe neighbourhood with everything at your doorstep, there’s always something happening in this vibrant little area.
