(d) The Location
Epsom is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. It is located in the center of the Auckland isthmus between Mount Eden and Greenlane, New Zealand, south of Newmarket, and five km south of Auckland CBD. Epsom has always been one of Auckland's most prestigious suburbs - known for its beautiful historic homes, famous residents and being close to most of the top schools.
Flanked by two of Auckland's largest parks - Auckland Domain and One Tree Hill/Cornwall Park - the area has many large villas and bungalows on big sections offering families the perfect environment in which to live.The area mainly settled around the turn of last century, and although many of the homes are old, there are pockets of new townhouses enjoying the tree-lined roads and abundant greenery. With good access to the motorways as well as major arterial roads, travelling to and from Epsom is a breeze - although Manukau Rd and Gillies Ave can get clogged at times, but at least the scenery is pretty!
The makeup of residents has changed remarkably in recent years with a strong Asian community making the area their home. Many of the long-standing families who have lived in the area for decades have moved on - with many of their homesteads being bowled and replaced with modern townhouses - finding the upkeep of their grounds costly and time-consuming. There are also many families who live in the area, especially those with secondary school-age children. The proximity to many private and public schools makes Epsom a good choice for parents not wanting to travel too far for the school round. And occasionally, some children will even walk to school.
The major road running through Epsom is Manukau Road. Manukau Road links central Auckland on the east coast with its airport and its west coast harbor, the port of neighboring Onehunga. It was one of the 19th century's main routes south from Auckland. The main route was Great South Road which forms Epsom's north-eastern boundary with Remuera. The link to the Port of Onehunga meant Manukau Road became the route for horse buses, horse trams and, after 1902, electric trams. Many suburban houses and villas were built along it.
