"Central hotspot with quiet tree lined street" reviewed Monique Holgye

Box Hill South is a lovely leafy spot close enough to the city but still with neighbourly spirt.

While there is no train line to Box Hill South, just up the road to either Box Hill or Blackburn their are train stations, plus there is lots of tram and bus options.

Also boasting great parkland and walking tracks leading into the city. Close to Burwood One shopping complex, Forest Hill, The Glen and not far Chadstone if needed.

Lots of apartments popping up and with a great rental return it is becoming popular with investors and with Deakin Uni/BoX Hill Tafe so close is popular with students.
