A large master-planned community to the south of Melton in Melbourne’s west, Atherstone will eventually be home to around 15,000 happy residents. You can enjoy the fresh air and big skies of Melbourne’s west, while also being safe in the knowledge that you’re only a 40-minute car ride or 33-minute train to the city via nearby Cobblebank Station. But more than the location and the size, it’s the on-site charms of this community that truly set it apart.

Why buy in Atherstone
Such is its size that Atherstone is set to become a city in itself. The on-site amenities are endless, including a retail hub featuring a major supermarket, dining options and health services, three education providers (and two more just outside the estate), a quarter of the land set aside as open space including a 100ha regional park and 8ha of waterways and wetlands, and an indoor sports centre. It’s the complete modern life, built from the ground up for residents.
Atherstone Suburb Profile
Imagine being around 35 minutes from the Melbourne CBD by both car and train, while enjoying a life with the Werribee River on one side and major shopping outlets on the other, but in an area that is completely detached from Melbourne, and could almost be described as semi-rural. This is the magic formula that makes up Melton South, a suburb that is becoming ever more popular amongst homebuyers who are looking for value, but not at the expense of convenience. When all these factors are considered, it’s incredible that property in Melton South is as inexpensive as it is – the likes of Atherstone estate offer three- and four-bedroom homes at scarcely believable rates, given the accessibility and amenity on offer (including seven education providers and endless shopping.) Unlike other areas in Melbourne’s west, life at Melton South comes ready-made.
