  WHAT’S LIVING IN Ivanhoe LIKE?

Just 10 kilometers northeast from Melbourne sits Ivanhoe, a suburb famed for its annual Christmas lights display. Every Christmas season, residents adorn their homes and lawns with elaborate lights and decorations. It's this type of charm that makes this family-friendly neighborhood a great place to live.

Upper Heidelberg Road is the heart of the neighborhood. Here, sitting on top of a hill, is the Art Deco town hall. Known for its neon green clockface, it was built in 1937 and exists today as an events venue. Also found on this road are bookstores, numerous restaurants and cafés, supermarkets, and banks. The restaurants offer a diverse range of cuisine, from Italian and Thai to Lebanese and Chinese.

Most residents live in renovated traditional homes, or reside in one of the many brand new townhomes sprouting up every day. Rent and mortgages are affordable, so Ivanhoe is the perfect place for singles and families to enjoy a slice of suburban living close to the city.

An impressive array of parks and tracks are spread across Ivanhoe when you're feeling like some fresh air.

Ivanhoe is bordered on the north by Bellfield, on the east by Eaglemont, on the south by the Yarra River, and on the west by Alphington, Fairfield, and Thornbury.
