The Upper Heidelberg Road shopping strip, where neighbours mingle over morning coffees, is the centre of all the action in this rather sleepy suburb.

Befitting its prestigious setting, Ivanhoe and its neighbouring suburbs are a mecca for private schools. Despite the chaos of the daily school run, there’s plenty of room to move here, with bountiful parkland and greenery. It all makes Ivanhoe the stuff young families’ dreams are made of.

Cashed up mature couples, empty nesters and singles are equally enamoured by this lush neighbourhood’s trappings and prime location, making it one of the most sought-after spots in the city.
