The best of Melbourne on the CBD’s doorstep
Since Melbourne was first settled in the 1800’s, homes in South Yarra have always been highly sought after. It is a suburb that captures the rare, ideal mix: you’re right in the thick of the action but still removed from the everyday rough and tumble. It’s why the quality of properties is generally so high – there’s little chance of over-capitalising in such an outstanding location.
The leafy residential streets of South Yarra are some of the most picturesque in the state. They are filled with the homes of Melbourne’s establishment, including prestigious mansions, tasteful apartments and beautiful heritage houses that are surrounded by some of the best parkland this city has to offer.
These gorgeous residences are also a stone’s throw from a number of our most highly regarded schools, as well as the retail centres of Toorak Road and Chapel Street, where you will find plenty of Melbourne’s foremost boutiques and restaurants.
As is always the case with the best of locations, it can be very hard to buy in South Yarra. Eight-figure sums are common at the higher end of the market, and even more modest properties come at a premium – and rightly so.
In recent years, a number of high-end townhouses and apartment buildings have been developed in the area. But, as with the suburb’s more established homes, South Yarra’s outstanding amenity makes these properties ‘must haves’ for a large number of buyers and they are generally snapped up as soon as they hit the market.
You’re right on the spot for both business and pleasure when you live in South Yarra. The colour and excitement of the CBD, as well as the Arts and Sporting precincts are minutes away. Whether you want to jog to work in the CBD, catch a tram to a show at The Malthouse, ride your bike to training at the Tennis Centre or simply stroll down to Toorak Road for a spot of shopping and a coffee, it’s all right there on your doorstep.
