Fairfield was predominantly established in the 1930s after WWII when the state extended the suburb to the north. Fairfield has many tree lined streets which become more concentrated as you move through the suburb to its border at the eastern foothills. Mixed age groups live in Fairfield enjoying the convenience, plenty of sun, and some very quiet places. Housing in Fairfield ranges from character homes through to modern in-fill properties.
There is a cluster of main road shopping for the locals and through traffic including a dairy, cake shop, takeaways and a large garden centre just up the road. It takes 3 to 5 minutes to drive from the far side of Fairfield into Central Hutt. Buses also leave from the shopping area and the closest rail connection is Epuni Station.
Mark, a top agent here at Professionals, Redcoats Limited says that:
“The Waterloo/Fairfield areas are in my opinion two of the nicest suburbs in the valley due to the established settings with mature trees, character homes with flat sections and the hills as your backdrop.”
“Most families who buy their homes in these areas tend to stay for a good number of years in the same home until their family needs change, as there are good schools of all levels all relatively close by, you are on the main train line heading north or south and both suburbs have a good range of local shops, which often become good meeting places for a number of the locals, giving the areas that village feel. You are only 5 minutes by car to the Westfield shopping centre.”
“At the time local residents consider moving home, they often remain in the area, while either going for something larger or smaller than their current home. Enough said, Waterloo/Fairfield should be at the top of the areas you need to see when considering buying your next home.”
