We are building our first house in Kensington Gardens Estate in Drouin Victoria.
We have 2 dogs and a moody cat, and we will be living at number 28 kensington square ( or lot 22 )
We got our final soil test back today ( We have had 2 done ) and we have come back with a P with a H class slab with piers, not looking forward to seeing our site cost bill, but at least we know our house wont move.
We would love to introduce yourselves and get to know our new future neighbours!

The sale yards re-development (Kensington Banks), the popularity of Macaulay Road shops and Bellair Street’s delightful boutique cafés makes Kensington a unique and highly desirable suburb. if unsw, randwick you'd want eastern suburbs coogee randwick clovelly kensington ..
Kensington is served by Kensington Public School (around 400 students), Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College (High School) . 'Peters of Kensington' is a well known retail store on Anzac Parade. Kensington is also close to Randwick Racecourse and Centennial Park.
Kensington Racecourse opened in 1893 on the site of the current University of New South Wales. Very few Aboriginals live in Kensington today.
