Thornbury: Now a blue-chip suburb

Until recently, Thornbury has been considered a bit of a compromise – an affordable alternative to its highly gentrified neighbour, Northcote. But now it’s very much a desirable Melbourne suburb in its own right. Jarrod McCabe, director at Wakelin Property Advisory, explains why.

Jarrod discusses Thornbury's transport links (00:25), its appeal for young families and independent people (00:45), the lifestyle it offers (1:15), the history of the area (1:35), the types of properties available (2:10) and why it is a good choice for buyers interested in capital growth (2:50).
