Prime location and the latest in architectural design mean little if a home isn’t structurally sound. Fortunately, Casey Building Inspections provides comprehensive property inspections in Park Orchards that can determine whether your potential new property is your dream home or a costly nightmare.

Park Orchards History

Park orchards market
Pre-colonisation, the Wurundjeri people cared for the land.

In 1902, prominent Victorian orchardist Tom Petty, purchased 559 acres of land north of the Mitcham district, and converted it to 80 orchard blocks in an ambitious project. In 1925, South Melbourne timber merchants Australis Sharp and John Taylor purchased Petty’s land and launched the Park Orchards Country Club Estate. They had the subdivisions designed by Saxil Tuxen and Miller. Tuxen had previously worked with Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin on the Ranelagh Estate in Mt Eliza which Sharp and Taylor had owned, and Park Orchards was designed around a similar ‘Country Club’ organisation that had become popular during the 1920s in the US. The circular street layout is clearly inspired by Mahony-Griffin style.

In 1944 the Australian Army requisitioned The Chalet and the football ground, and set up The School For Eastern Interpreters  for Z Special Unit  and a training facility for the Australian Special Wireless Group during World War II.  400 personnel were stationed there.

By the late 1950s the Post-War Migration boom  saw an increase in subdivisions being developed. Most of the blocks were sold by 1960. The Park Orchards Post Office opened on 1 November 1959, the Primary School opened on 14 March 1961. The final blocks sold in the early 1990s.
