She agrees with Mr Webb that the schools near Swaine Ave make it a great place for a fam­ily.

‘‘It’s in the Mar­ry­atville school zone and it has lots of good pri­vate and public schools close by. It’s a very hard area to get into and is also good for cap­i­tal ap­pre­ci­a­tion,’’ she says.

Toorak Gar­dens is a small sub­urb cov­er­ing ap­prox­i­mately 1sq km, ac­cord­ing to RP Data. The me­dian sales price is $1.06 mil­lion and 34.2 per cent of house­holds are cou­ples with chil­dren.

Con­ve­nient: Rick and Donna Webb say Toorak Gar­dens is close to the city, schools and parks.
