Why Choose Greythorn?

The first thing to understand about this area is that it is officially a part of North Balwyn, yet it has a distinct personality that is all it’s own. It was initially established in the 1950s, and it serves as a community for those interested in a more upscale experience. Since Greythorn is only one square kilometre in size, living there means that you have the privilege of living in an exclusive community.

Greythorn Lifestyle

People who live in Greytorn are the type who value community, and they are staunch in their belief that they are very different from those who live in nearby areas. Residents love the idea of spending time at Greythorn Park, a local park that was once part of an animal sanctuary. Now it is home to sporting events and a great playground perfect for those of all ages. 

Types Of Homes In Greythorn

Originally, Greythorn was a place filled with cream brick family homes that were built post-war. This has changed tremendously, with many of those homes being demolished to make room for more modern architecture. Taking a look at Belle Vue, a luxury home in the area, can give you a great idea of the type of homes expected to be in the neighbourhood in the future. In keeping with the times, many new properties are filled with technological treats and were created with energy efficiency in mind.

Greythorn Median House Prices

Homes in this enclave are relatively expensive, with the average home priced at around $1.9M. It is possible to find something cheaper, but this means you will most likely have a home that needs some improvements. The heftier price tags are because Greythorn is a small, highly sought-after community and located within Balwyn giving access to a popular shopping centre, which features numerous eateries, fitness centres and places you can go to indulge in spa and beauty services.

As you can tell, Greythorn is a great community and its appeal is not likely to wane as time progresses. If you live there now, it would be best to stay and make it your permanent home.
