Attracting Aucklander’s from all walks of life with its relaxed, community-friendly vibe, Meadowbank is said to have a certain ‘magic’ to it. Once homeowners move in to the suburb, local property experts can often be heard quoting many never want to leave.
Robert Ashton – Bayleys Remuera Agent and Eastern Suburbs local says the reasons for this are varied.
“With Executives and Professionals making up close to 50% of listed professions in the area, it offers an easy commute to the city by preferred method of transportation – including a quick nine minute train ride to the CBD from the local station. We’re all excited about the soon-to-be completed Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive cycling path, which will provide cyclists with a direct link to downtown Auckland as well.”
Meadowbank has historically proved popular with families, known across the city as a warm and inclusive community. Reputable local school – Meadowbank Primary – offers access to a decile 10 learning environment for those in zone. A mix of private and public Early Childhood Centres provide options for younger children, while those at the other end of their schooling journey are zoned for Selwyn College. Kings Prep and St Kentigern’s Prep are within close range of Risland Meadowbank too.
Irrespective of life stage, it’s the suburbs lifestyle perks that Robert Ashton says speak to all.
“Meadowbank is just that one step closer to amenities than some of its other Eastern Suburbs neighbours. If you’re after an outdoor adventure - Rutherford Reserve and St. Johns Bush Walk are just around the corner from Risland Meadowbank, while the mangrove boardwalk at Orakei Basin is the perfect spot for the morning jog. You’ll find locals queuing for coffee at Meadow Restaurant in the village, and people come from all around to visit the corner Bakery.”
