Hamilton East has a small community feel with its main commercial and retail strip located on Grey Street.
This provides a range of shopping opportunities including great dining options and a selection of designer shops. Hamilton East is only about a 10 minute walk away from the illustrious Hamilton Gardens, while Hamilton City provides a range of amenities including a library, cinema and museum.
Hamilton East is characterised by popular villas and bungalows built early in the 20th century. Many of them have been renovated to include modern amenities. However, most owners bought the houses to recapture the nostalgia of the era. The high studs, exposed native timbers and distinctive craftsmanship, which typify these homes, are often preserved by owners sympathetic to the period.
