Ashburton residents live in an enviable location. The suburb is less than ten minutes from Chadstone Shopping Centre and twenty minutes from the city centre. Though it can be a bustling area during peak hour, Ashburton's streetscapes are spacious and lined with trees. Bike paths, sportsgrounds and beautiful parks enhance its family-friendly atmosphere.

Buses running along High Street whisk students to prestigious private schools in nearby suburbs, like Scotch College and Trinity Grammar School. Ashburton itself has three primary schools: Solway Primary School, Saint Michael's Parish School and Ashburton Primary School. There are also many tertiary students living in the area due to the proximity of the Holmesglen Institute of TAFE, Monash University, Deakin University's Burwood campus and Swinburne University's Hawthorn campus.

A vibrant shopping strip with coffee shops, cafes, bakeries, pharmacies and an IGA supermarket can be found along High Street near the Ashburton railway station. Alamein Station, the terminus for the Alamein line, is also located in the south of the suburb. Other popular community facilities include the Ashburton Pool and Recreation Reserve, and the Ashburton Library, which is conveniently located on High Street.

ashburton Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
