Where is it?
Our home is literally just south of the Yarra River. A 30 second walk down the adjoining stairs and you are at the River. There are walking and cycling tracks along the river. Our neighboring properties are of a similar age (1920/30s) and the quiet cul-de-sac is a unique area of South Yarra.
There is an extensive public transport network. From the house it is a 5 minute walk to the tram stop where you can ride the tram all the way to the City of Melbourne (15-20 mins) or swap to a train at the South Yarra Station for a 5 mins train ride to the City. Melbourne has a rich array of cultural activities to offer and was voted the world's most liveable City every year from 2010 to 2015.
There are a number of unique shopping areas to explore in the close vicinity of South Yarra,where we live.
Chapel Street (8 mins walk to the West from our home) is a vibrant fashion and food strip. Here, designer labels go hand in hand with fancy bistros. The street gets crowded on weekends as cafes compete with boutiques for passing trade. The Jam Factory is a focal point. An actual jam factory at one time, it is now a modern shopping complex with cinemas.
Toorak Village (12 minutes walk to the East from our home)has high quality fashion boutiques, book and homeware stores,sunny street cafes, food and flower shops as well as beauty parlors and pharmacies. These are all in a friendly village environment.
Hawksburn Village on Malvern Road (20 minute walk, east then south to the area between Williams and Mathoura Roads) has specialty meat, fish, bread and vegetable stores. It also has boutiques with goodies for the home, the garden, the wardrobe and an abundance of beautiful children's wear. There is a collection of trendy restaurants, friendly cafes and takeaway shops.
High Street, Prahran East (between Airlie Avenue and Victoria Gardens) is renowned for its suppliers of international fabrics and it is also a street of styles, with a fusion of East and West. From Oriental vases, Russian crystal chandeliers, American, Italian and antique furniture through to Afghan traditional rugs or the most desirable and stylish homewares, gifts and specialty shops, Prahran East Village is definitely a place to visit.
