My home is located in a beautiful and quiet tree lined street that has a wonderful park and playground just a few doors away. Locally you are within a short walk to a large shopping strip with funky cafes and restaurants as well as a large (Coles) supermarket. The train station (15 min. to the city) tram and bus stops are also just a short walk away.
The home itself has bright and spacious open plan living areas with the family room having a 60 inch 3D "smart" HDTV. There are three sizable double bedrooms, two of which have queen size beds with the third having singles. The master bedroom has a walk in robe, ensuite and a 60inch Smart HDTV. There's a separate office/ study as well as a large laundry. There is ducted and zoned heating / air conditioning throughout.
I also have a wonderful modern two bedroom / two bathroom apartment in a supurb location in Toorak that could also be made available for your stay. The apartment in Toorak can be viewed at https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/1467936
Melbourne is rightfully known as being one of the worlds most livable cities. There is plenty to enjoy and explore within the city and regionally as well. Melbourne is known as being the centre for arts and culture and Melbornians are renowned for their love of sport and the hosting of major sporting events.
