Hughesdale is the little surprise between Oakleigh, Chadstone and East Bentleigh that has loads of period treasures and family homes, mixed with unobtrusive villas, townhouses and apartments. It’s one of the last suburbs with the big blocks to redevelop but also has several heritage precincts to preserve the history of the area.
The revamped Oakleigh Grammar is creating a name for itself, the imposing Sacred Heart Catholic Girls’ School sits right on the edge of Hughesdale and Oakleigh and the lovely setting of Hughesdale Primary School has a fantastic program that includes Mandarin as a language other than English.
Hughesdale is bounded by Poath Road, North Road, Warrigal Road and Dandenong Road, and offers a charming village style shopping strip in Poath Road next to the railway station, and 3 beautiful parks – Argyle Reserve, Galbally Reserve and a little playground on Bowmore Street.
Young families are flocking to Hughesdale for their great childcare and kindergarten services, as well as knowing how great it is to live so close to Chadstone.
