Clyde North has been attracting new residents in droves since transforming itself many years ago from rural farmland into a sought-after residential suburb.
Positioned 46 kilometres south-east of the city of Melbourne, Clyde North was established over 100 years ago when a railway station was built south of the original Clyde township, effectively creating two towns: Clyde and Clyde North.
Once nestled amidst market gardens that proudly provided Melbourne with vegetables such as spinach, celery, leeks, spring onions and herbs, including parsley and basil, Clyde North is now a fresh, evolving community, spoilt and very much well-serviced by surrounding, established suburbs.
With median house prices increasing in value by over 40 percent over the past nine years, Clyde North is appealing to investors plus first homebuyers who are able to afford their first property in the suburb, yet still enjoy an annual increase in market value on their investment.
Clyde North’s position to adjacent Cranbourne is also a drawcard for purchasers, affording their new home with easy access to the Cranbourne Central Shopping Centre and the recently-renovated Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre, as well as the Cranbourne racecourse that hosts family-friendly events throughout the year.
In nearby Berwick, shopaholics will love scouring for bargains in its boutique shopping strip before settling down for a coffee in one of its beautiful cafes.
Clyde North also enjoys easy connectivity to the Mornington Peninsula which is a tourist attraction famous for its wineries, restaurants and surf beaches, plus bayside camping.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg: take a quick tour of Clyde yourself and see why it’s such a drawcard for homebuyers!
Young families love Clyde North’s easy access to nearby sporting amenities like the Casey Race Recreation and Aquatic Centre, and local sporting communities like the Clyde Cricket Club, Clyde Tennis Club, Clyde Netball Club and the Clyde Football Club will appease even the most active of families, all year round.
Meanwhile, the kids can spend hours in the nearby beautiful Cranbourne Botanical Gardens spotting native animals like the resident Southern Brown Bandicoots, while Cruden Farm down the road hosts regular free family fun days in its extensive parks and gardens.
Clyde North is also well-serviced with numerous local hospitals, medical centres and health clinics, meaning peace-of-mind for when the little ones get sick.
Still enjoying its connection to its rich pastoral history, the areas surrounding Clyde North host various farmers markets – like the popular Berwick Farmers Market at the infamous Old Cheese Factory, which offers everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to handmade local olive oil and artisan sourdough bread.
For those looking for a coffee before strolling through shopping centres, supermarkets, boutique shops and cafes can be found close by in the new Shopping on Clyde centre, Eden Rise Village and Selandra Rise Shopping Centre, while the future Clyde Town Centre will bring an even greater retail range closer to Clyde North residents.
Orana – the south-east’s largest masterplanned development – is now under construction in Clyde North.
Purchasers are attracted to Orana’s focus on sustainability, health and wellness, which will see the land estate boasting more than 42 hectares of green, open space – more than Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Six parks and waterways are planned for this estate, as well as 10 kilometres of shared paths for cyclists, joggers and walkers – spaces for the whole community to engage, interact and explore.
Upon completion, Orana will offer residents everything they need right on their doorsteps, including a primary school, a town centre, community centre and even a business zone.
