We’ve all heard about those certain areas of Melbourne which are sprouting up with miles and miles of McMansions. These insta-mansions always seem a little bit too big for any regular sized household – they usually look more like a fortress than an actual home. Which Melbourne suburbs do you think are becoming the worst culprits for McMansions?
Critics debate the effectiveness of McMansions in assisting the growth of local communities – a common reasoning is that it’s better to have a more modest collection of high-density housing, especially given the population growth we’re experiencing in Melbourne. It’s definitely the cheaper option, too, which is certainly something to consider in the existing Melbourne housing market.
But there’s no denying it – most newer suburbs which are popping up in the greenfields areas of Melbourne’s perimeter have been stuffed to the gills with these McMansion style homes.
Perhaps McMansions are on their way out of style in Melbourne – a quick look at the real estate websites displays more McMansions for sale than you’d expect.
Which suburb do you rate as the worst culprit for being filled with McMansions, and why?
