Bell Post Hill - modernist commuting hot spot
Commanding views over Corio Bay dominates this suburb, whose suburban streets and green acreages are separated by the Geelong Ring Road. The ring road freeway access has brought Bell Post Hill much favour already from property investors and the Melbourne car commuting fraternity. The closest train stations are North Shore and North Geelong but they’re not walking distance. Keen cyclists could cop the ride.
Working parents are well catered for with excellent long day care and kinder services at Kardinia Kids Childcare as well as Kardinia International College and Covenant College. Bell Park North is the key local primary option, with Hamlyn Banks Primary more accessible from homes in the southern pocket and Rollins Primary catering to the north.
Dominated by solidly built brick homes from the 60’s through to the 90’s, it largely caters to buyers at the affordable end, with some newer estate homes commanding far higher prices. It’s a smaller suburb and on the face of it, quite tightly held. Like the northern suburbs of Geelong more broadly, the area is home to many migrant families who settled in the suburb a generation or more ago. As some of these older families sell up, there’s gold in them there hills, particularly for renovators looking for homes at price points they can quickly add value to.
