A creative Geelong growth area suburb would have to be one of the best places in Australia for a Game of Thrones super fan to build their castle.
Streets in the nascent Charlemont community on the city’s southern fringe are named after families from the mammoth medieval hit.
Buyers could find themselves receiving ravens to addresses on Catelyn Rd, Stannis St, Winterfell Rd, Greyjoy St, Baelish Drive and Tywin St.

But the Lannaster Rd street sign lost its head a few seasons ago after a complaint from a neighbouring estate because of that particular family’s romantic brother-sister relationship.
Charlemont Rise project manager Gary Smith said at the time he had even changed the spelling of the name from Lannister to Lannaster to make it less obvious, but to no avail.
The name was knocked back by the Office of Geographic names and City of Greater Geelong then voted in favour of renaming the street.
It’s now the adequately inoffensive Precinct Rd, in reference to it having the local shops.
But there were no complaints from Winterfell Rd residents Bryce and Lisa Torney, who love living there and are looking forward to binging the show’s final instalment.
“I’m a big fan and I’ve watched all of the previous seven seasons,” Ms Torney told the Geelong Advertiser.
“We stumbled across this road completely by chance, I would like to say it was inspired by the TV series but it was just a happy coincidence.
“It was definitely a conversation starter when we first moved in.”
Mr Smith said it was “really hard to come up with street names these days” and he had “always liked the Game of Thrones names” because they were “a bit out there”.
“We wanted original names as everything is already taken in Geelong, you have to think outside the circle,” he said, adding the only other complaints the developer had received were from Lannaster Rd residents disappointed that it had to be changed.
The renaming of Lannaster Rd meant 13 properties required readdressing.
Game of Thrones fan and cosplay enthusiast Bianca Mileti, who likes to dress as Cersei, was among those disappointed with the name change.
The final season hits Foxtel today, April 15.
