Central Diamond Creek tipped to be a hotspot in 2023

Homes in Melbourne’s northeast continue to capture interest from those wanting a peaceful lifestyle in leafy surroundings.

Buyers from across Melbourne swooped on properties in Diamond Creek last year, and the trend is expected to continue this year, according to Barry Plant Diamond Creek sales manager.

“Many were young professionals, families and retirees from inner-city suburbs, Werribee and Taylors Lakes,” he said.

“They were drawn to this Green Wedge area, with its larger blocks in bush surroundings.”

A three-bedroom house on 608sq m at 7 Stone Street, was snapped up by a professional couple living in an inner-city suburb for $950,000 last year.

“We had three offers from out-of-area buyers for this quirky character home,”

“It was well finished, with interesting extensions, and sold above the seller’s expectations.”

The unique house captured strong interest on a leafy landscaped block because of its clever use of timbers, warm and inviting living and dining areas, and deck overlooking a native garden with an artisan gate.

Another standout sale in 2022 was the four-bedroom Federation-style house at 31 Nicole Crescent, which was snapped up for $1.4 million.


The quality builder’s own home lasted three weeks on the market and attracted three offers.

It was maintained to a high standard, from the spotless garage to the tuck-pointed brickwork and richly toned timber cabinetry.

The entertainer’s delight features an all-weather outdoor area with an elevated deck, a studio/gymnasium or games room with a kitchen and toilet, ducted heating and refrigerated cooling.

The property is two doors down from Diamond Creek's famous windmill house, just minutes from St Helena Secondary College, Glen Katherine Primary School and Eltham Village.

Homes in the central Diamond Creek area were expected to be in hot demand this year, Mr Booth said.

“We are seeing good numbers at opens and strong interest from genuine buyers, including first-home buyers,” he said.

“However, because of the strong competition, buyers should have their finances approved and go hard in terms of price.”

Well-presented and realistically priced properties were expected to do well this year, including the near new four-bedroom house for sale at 45 Serenity Place, Diamond Creek.

Families are eyeing the split-level house with three living areas plus a covered alfresco zone tucked in a quiet cul-de-sac, priced at $1.025 million.

“This property represents great buying in the million-dollar range. Only two years old, it is well priced and offers a ton of features.”
