Three features that make Belconnen perfect for young families

By Ben Faulks

It can be difficult to find an area that ticks all the boxes for your young family. You've found a place with great schools, but very few amenities. Maybe the local shops are fantastic, but it's too far away from work. Perhaps it's right next door to your employment, but the education centres are lacklustre. It's a balancing act, and so often the right area ends up being outside of your price range.

However, we've got some good news. Your search may be over: real estate in Belconnen could be the perfect fit for your young family. Here are three reasons why you should call this up-and-coming suburb home.

Is it time for your young family to move to Belconnen?

1. Excellent local schools

Planning for your children's future is incredibly important. When you have a young child, these initial formative years can be integral to their future development. Being in the catchment area for good public schools or living in the vicinity of private schools can be a major factor in choosing your new home – and Belconnen has both.

Depending on where you settle in Belconnen, you can be in the catchment zone for public schools in either Macquarie or Florey. There are also plenty of excellent private schools nearby, such as Radford College in Bruce, the highest ranked combined school in ACT in terms of median ATAR scores.

2. Fantastic local amenities

You'll never be short of things to do in Belconnen!

Belconnen is bursting with local entertainment and shopping, ranging from the Australian Institute of Sport to the local Westfield mall. Not only that, but there are plans to further develop the city town centre and provide even more options for local residents.

3. Plenty of bang for your buck

Homes for rent only cost $373 a week, according to data. If you're looking to buy, a unit will only set you back $400,000 on average. 

For that price, you get access to some of the best schools in the territory, as well as being nearby excellent shopping centres, the AIS, Lake Ginniderra and a whole host of other features that your new family can take advantage of. Local government buildings provide plenty of work opportunities, and it's only a 15 minute drive from the city centre. 

If you're looking for a place to call home with your young family, you couldn't do better than Belconnen. Speak to a local real estate agent today and find out how you can take the next step in your family's journey.
