And this magnificent home is not the only drawcard for potentially interested parties. Residents around the area have commented on Hawthorn being:

"A beautiful green suburb."

"It's a beautiful greeny suburb with a sense of comfort within walking distance of all basic amenities. There's a bike trail, an Oval, a park, local shops etc, and most of all it's safe for all age groups and I'll highly recommend it to anyone. I'm renting here at the moment but some day I wish to own a property here."
