Years ago, if you asked anyone who didn’t live on the Calder line where Kyneton was you would probably get a blank expression.
These days, Kyneton has become an emerging hotspot for creative and professional tree-changers as well as well as those seeking a quieter lifestyle.
One of the biggest draw cards is Kyneton’s proximity to the Melbourne CBD as well as the airport. With access to Melbourne and the inner north only an hour away by road and rail, savvy commuters have found it a bonus instead of spending equal time travelling from suburban areas.
The housing marketing remains steady in Kyneton, with a combination of character filled period homes as well as newer stock keeping both buyers and sellers happy. With owner occupiers as well as investors finding it increasingly difficult to enter the Melbourne market,
Real Estate Institute of Victoria data also supports homebuyers choosing places like Kyneton with median house prices increasing approxametly 39% over the last five years.
One of my tree-changing buyers recently said “It is the 5 minute lifestyle that did it for us.” And she is right! With fast trains, sophisticated hospital and healthcare facilities, progressive schools and access to childcare as well as Kyneton’s renown epicurean scene and natural attractions, I do not foresee the interest in Kyneton as home buying hotspot slowing down any time soon.
