It’s one of the most difficult suburbs in Melbourne to buy a house, that’s because once you’re in, you never want to leave.
The tightly held Brunswick East is desirable for a number of reasons: it’s close to the CBD, the blocks are bigger, and its relatively affordable compared to neighbouring Carlton and Fitzroy North.
The demand is so great to own a piece of Brunswick East, statistics released last year revealed the median house price skyrocketed by 26.6 per cent in the proceeding 12 months.
That helps to explain why savvy developers have swooped, creating an avenue for buyers to enter the market at a reasonable price, who otherwise would have to fork out big bucks for a block, or on many occasions, miss out all together.
A new boutique development, ‘The Vic’, has just 30 dwellings, not only to keep in theme with the streetscape, but to ensure the Brunswick East market remains an exclusive and coveted inner-city pocket.
Buyers have the choice of one or two bedroom apartments that come with secure car parking and storage.
Each dwelling has a floorplan designed to create the ultimate entertainment space and an effortless lifestyle.
Open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas connect through to private, generous-sized balconies, while floor-to-ceiling windows flood the area with sunlight, and allow you to enjoy the view from the comfort of your couch.
Only the finest fittings have been installed throughout: think stainless steel Bosch appliances, engineered oak floorboards, stone benchtops, chrome tapware, mirror glass splash backs, porcelain bathroom tiles and plush carpet in the bedrooms.
The prime location is part of the reason buyers are so eager to call Brunswick East home.
The 96 tram line is pretty much at your doorstep connecting you to Melbourne’s CBD, just 4.5 kilometres away, as well as St Kilda beach.
Within walking distance is a wealth of cosy cafes, delicious restaurants and top shopping along Nicholson Street, Rathdowne Street and Brunswick Street.
While the buzzing Lygon Street precinct, or Little Italy, is also nearby, filled with trattorias serving the best pasta, cannoli and short blacks in Melbourne.
And for those after a dose of nature, the CERES Community Park, Merri Creek and Fleming Park are a stone’s throw away.
