With its Victorian and Edwardian housing stock embellished across lush and fine greenery, Clifton Hill is a contemplation of vintage aesthetics.
But the suburb is no stranger to the advantages of modernity. Clifton Hill provides residents with all the amenities of modern Australian living through its own shopping strip in Queens Parade. The younger locals and their visiting peers can enjoy the shops housed in Victorian structures that have been beautifully preserved from the 19th century. Should the locals desire wider shopping selection and entertainment options, they can easily hop to the train station or tram stops to head to the CBD.
For the outgoing and athletic, Clifton Hill offers well-maintained parks and sporting facilities. The Darling Gardens stands out with a playground, skatepark, cricket field, and football oval. Meanwhile, those who prefer walking, running, or cycling, would be glad to find a trail along Merri Creek.
Clifton Hill’s prime location and tasteful real estate make the steep prices for rental and purchase worth it. The apartments and semi-detached townhomes of contemporary style and flavor make for notable accents to the suburb’s dominating vintage aura.
Singles, young couples and families will find Clifton Hill a fitting home.
