– You’ll find a number of housing estates in Tarneit, and most of the homes are spacious and contemporary reinterpretations of the classic family version.With low-maintenance front yards fringing winding estate roads, homes come in a range of modern styles, from slightly more traditional double-storey houses to geometric, compact, single-storey homes that are perfectly suited to empty nesters or those looking to downsize.
– If you want an affordable new home in a well-laid out estate, living amongst other families, Tarneit can tick that box. It’s got a number of schools, shopping hubs and a broad bus network, while all the drawcards of the nearby bay – bike trails, beaches – can be reached within a few minutes.
