No longer a fringe suburb of Canberra, Charnwood is emerging as a cheap and popular alternative to nearby Dunlop, where properties often sell for more than $100,000 higher. Full summary

No longer a fringe suburb of Canberra, Charnwood is emerging as a cheap and popular alternative to nearby Dunlop, where properties often sell for more than $100,000 higher. The area’s relative affordability could spur buyers to the area, driving up prices. It offers much of what Dunlop offers too: large block sizes, set upon hilly streets with great views of Canberra. 

“Charnwood’s infrastructure is good,” says Dennis Vlandis of LJ Hooker-Belconnen. “It is a short drive to Belconnen centre and many of the federal government offices. The housing there appeals to a broad range of people, and is especially popular with young families.” 

Best street(s):   The most expensive homes are found around Arrietta Cl and Barns Place while Bloxham St and Weaver Pl boast some of the cheapest in the suburb.
