Eaglemont Suburb Profile

Located 10 kilometers northeast of Melbourne’s CBD in between Ivanhoe and Ivanhoe East, the suburb of Eaglemont is a small affluent community with a population of 3,927 as of 2011. Originally named Mount Eagle, the area is under the City of Banyule. It is a quiet and safe place to live in and ideal for professionals, families with kids and retirees.

The streets here are mostly lined up with trees and there are lots of green spaces between houses.

History

Eaglemont was one of the properties built in the 1840s. Known then as Hartlands, the area was on an elevated region and was mostly agricultural. In the late 1850s, a large house and gardens were built there by J.H. Brooke, a parliamentarian, and named the area Mount Eagle.

Decades later in the 1880s, the two properties were purchased, subdivided and named as Mount Eagle Estate. It was much later, however, when the area was made available to a group of artists which became known as the Heidelberg School.

By 1915, a subdivision was designed for the Mount Eagle Estate and featured curving streets and private parklands. The man commissioned to design the subdivision was Walter Burley Griffin who later resided in the area specifically at 23 Glenard Drive.

Among the earliest structures constructed in the suburb are the railway station in 1926 and the post office in 1929.

A small shopping strip is in place in the suburb. It is here where you can find a fruit shop, grocery store, book shop, food outlets, specialty stores and news agencies. The Eagle Bar and post office are also located here.
