A jewel of Melbourne’s south, Albert Park is one of the best loved suburbs by people from across the city. It’s beautifully manicured gardens, modern amenities and stunning beaches draw people from every corner of the state, and with good reason. Covering nearly a mile of gorgeous beachfront as well as one of the city’s most treasured parks, it’s a town that’s a feast for the eyes.
Just three kilometres from the city, it offers something for both those looking for an exciting, active lifestyle as well as those who want to settle into a quiet, relaxed pace. With fairly even distribution between young and old, it’s a suburb with something to offer young professionals, new families, and retirees. Whatever you’re looking for out of life, Albert Park can offer it.
Understated, tasteful luxury
Those hunting for a style of housing with character and history won’t be disappointed. Albert Park’s backstreets and neighborhoods are rich in character and atmosphere. A mix of carefully preserved Victorian and Edwardian terraced housing – thanks to strict heritage conservation – and semi-detached housing mean that so many of the properties on the market have decades of history and love behind them.
Modern developments along busier roads such as Canterbury Road, Kerferd Road and Richardson Street offer buyers a range of modern units and townhouses to choose from. It’s close location to the city, tight restrictions on development and limited supply mean that prices are substantial – nearly $2 million for homes and more than $700,000 for units. Those who can afford to buy in this suburb are promised a fantastic lifestyle, however.
Close to everything that makes Melbourne great
Albert Park’s namesake is one of the most cherished natural reserves in the city and is a favourite for weekend brunches, morning runners and riders and sailors. Taking in the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, it’s truly a suburb that loves to keep active. Regular tram connections mean the central business district is a mere 20 minutes away, and your weekend shop will be all the more interesting with the South Melbourne Market so close at hand.
So many beautiful bars, cafés and restaurants are scattered along Albert Park’s main thoroughfare. You’ll find everything from stunning espresso coffee to fresh seafood, flavoursome Middle Eastern and North African dining and hand-mixed cocktails all within walking distance of each other. Whatever experience you’re looking for, you’ll discover in it in Albert Park.
