Nestled amongst the unabashed greenery of Doreen, surrounded by the beautiful Plenty Gorge Park, The Ivy is northeast Melbourne living at its finest. A 50-minute drive or train ride (from nearby Mernda Station) to the CBD, here residents can enjoy all the convenience of city living, without the hustle and bustle. Nature is everywhere, both within the grounds and around them, while the established suburb of Doreen offers all the amenity that one could ever want.
The pull of the city, with all its convenience and opportunities, is difficult for modern families to ignore. But that doesn’t mean that many don’t yearn the nature, charm and wide-open spaces of the country. While by no means a rural estate, The Ivy does exude a distinctly rural atmosphere, thanks to its commitment to greenery and clever planning that encourages neighbourly interaction. It’s about as close to the country as a city community can get.
