I think we all know by now that Melbourne was voted one of the most livable cities in the world. Several times, actually. And it’s no surprise. The arts and culture scene is dynamic and blossoming. Public transport options are decent. New bike lanes are added regularly. And it’s super easy to find delicious, comforting cuisine no matter where you are.
And while lockdown has left once spirited streets dramatically quiet, the city continues to wait with bated breath for the return to its former glory. Times are challenging but buyers and sellers still want a piece of the pie. It’s clear that Melbourne will never lose its allure. So to honour that, we’re featuring three lovely Melbourne rental properties in three thriving suburbs—Prahran, East Melbourne and the CBD.
4411/135 A’Beckett St (leased)
Perched on a high floor of the EQ Tower skyscraper is this modern 2-bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow light to flood the rooms. Clean, contemporary finishings are fitted from the kitchen to the bathroom, making this the ideal apartment for luxe city living. Not to mention the other perks of the building—the bar is set high in architectural standards, A-class amenities and winning location.
6/16 Porter St, Prahran (leased)
Industrial chic are the words that come to mind when we see this listing. With a concrete-coloured ceiling and wide open spaces, the apartment is reminiscent of New York-style lofts. The upside here is a beautiful outdoor area ideal for barbecuing and entertaining. Within a 4-minute stroll is the Toorak tram station, which means you’re in easy access to Chapel Street’s restaurants, shops and conveniences. And of course, in even easier access to the joy that is the Prahran Market.
Nested on the peaceful, tree-lined George Street is where you’ll find Lisieux House. The old age charm is instantly captivating. The apartment itself is spacious and filled with natural light. Two large bedrooms with built-in-wardrobes, a decent sized kitchen, and quaint wood fittings are what we loved about this rental. Not to mention a central location that’s still away from the hustle and bustle.
