Kew is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoira, 5 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District in the City of Booroondara.

In the recent 2017 property market downturn, median house values in Kew fell roughly $450,000 peak to trough.

That's just the fall observable since prices started falling in early 2018, slightly later than the downturn.

Median unit prices in Kew have remained stabler with little overall change from mid 2017 to current day.

However, since climbing to a new peak in early 2019 median apartment prices have fallen $40,000 to where they currently reside, according to the latest CoreLogic data.

Kew has grown steadily since the early Bridge Road crossing development and is cited as one of the most prestigious suburbs in Melbourne.

Streets in the Sackville Ward (bounded by Barkers, Burke, Cotham and Glenferrie Roads), such as Alfred, Rowland, Wellington, Grange and Sackville, have numerous examples of Edwardian, Victorian and contemporary architecture.
