"Beach, parks and city all on your doorstep"

Stunning, renovated Victorian terraces in tree lined streets. Close to the beach, the city and many parks. Has access to Albert Park's highlights including St Vincent's place, MSAC and Bridport street, but not quite as expensive.
Best area is Howe St/Ferrars place block, which is quiet, leafy and fantastic Victorian streetscape.
Problem is the cost of housing, and parking can be a difficult in some areas.
Pros
  • Close to beach, parks and city
Cons
  • Cost
