Everyone wants to take their business to Swan Street, but a sprawling five-bedroom Victorian-style terrace house just around the corner might even be better. With space downstairs for an office, Chinese medicine practice or a health-related service, you could forget all about commuting.
Inside, the kitchen has been updated but the polished floorboards, sash windows and turned bannister rails still exude Victorian era grace. At the rear, there is off-street parking for two cars.
Situated between the Epworth Hospital, the MCG and the Botanical Gardens, you can enjoy football, cricket, tennis, live music and art galleries as part of an inner-city lifestyle. Right now the Swan Street precinct is happening. Its cafés, bars and eateries are on the doorstep, together with the convenience of a major supermarket and a public transport hub. Zip into the city either by train or tram.
With a choice of primary schools and some of Melbourne’s finest secondary schools not too far away, it’s a great place for children, too.
