There’s much to love about the spirited, cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. Coming in at #8 on the EIU’s most liveable cities survey this year, its diverse neighbourhoods, buzzing arts and nightlife scene and close distance to natural wonders keep us coming back for more.
And we’re not the only ones—even despite a few pandemic-related bumps in the road, it’s growing ever more popular and housing prices continue to rise, likely supported by the low interest rates and a more successful economic rebound.
The city is abundant in beautiful properties scattered through its uniquely charming districts. From apartments within boutique developments to spacious freestanding houses, we take a look at what’s caught our eye this week, courtesy of our friends at Fletchers.
47 Havelock Road, Hawthorn East
Just glancing at this shot, we get a feel of the inviting warmth at this elegant 3-bedroom Hawthorn house. A long hallway entrance leads to open living and dining areas, with a gorgeous alfresco back garden. There’s so much potential here to make this space your own. Renovate, enlarge with a second storey or even start over and bring your dream home to life.
You’re only a hop, skip and jump away from great amenities like shopping and cafes, as well as leading schools and lush little parks. Contact Tim Heavyside to schedule an inspection.
4/34 Northcote Avenue, Balwyn
This lovely two-bedroom apartment is a gem located in the blue-chip neighbourhood of Balwyn. Daylight illuminates a spacious living room and modern kitchen. You also have the luxury and intimacy of your own private alfresco deck.
Location is one of the highlights here—with Balwyn Village just metres away boasting fresh food, grocery stores, and beauty, amongst other businesses. You’re a mere few seconds from the 109 tram which will take you to all the conveniences you need in Box Hill and the city. And around the corner is Chatham Primary School so it’s a catch for young, small families.
Inspections will take place weekly up to the auction date on August 21st. Get in touch with Fletcher agent Jack Peng for more info!
And if you’re in the mood for a sea-change, which is becoming ever so popular these days, head towards the Peninsula and find this impressive 3-bedroom. We would set camp here in a heartbeat. Oversized windows let in beautiful natural light. Big family rooms remind you that you’re out of the city and into the peacefulness of nature.
A convenient upper and lower floor separate the three bedrooms. modern kitchen, lounges and open air deck (above) and the garage and workspace (below)—the last of which has total flexibility to be turned into a cellar for wine buffs or a studio for artists or a workshop for woodworking enthusiasts… The choice is really yours.
Did we mention you’re also a 10-minute walk from the beach? Martin Huntley can tell you more.
