Parkside prestige

Crowned by the wilderness of Westerfold’s Reserve, Templestowe is a suburb that blends natural attraction with lavish accommodation. It’s best known for its prestigious streets lined with high-end properties, but you need not be a celebrity or footy player to live here. There are pockets of affordability, too. Once a part of the “green belt” with strict laws against development, Templestowe has retained its large blocks and leafy charm. It’s a first choice for professionals who want space and families attracted to its excellent amenities. These include top-rated schools, Templestowe Village’s charming shops and plentiful parkland, all just 19 km from the CBD.

The best thing about growing up in Templestowe was the sense of space. Most homes have big backyards, and there's a nice openness about it. It feels far from the hustle and bustle, but it's not!
