Strewn across this tacit and leafy suburb are single-family homes characteristic of the regal early 20th century. While painting a heritage vibe, Fairfield’s housing stock manages to blend well with the contemporary air brought in by its low-rise apartments. The streets they line across enjoy the shade of trees that provide neighborhoods with a cool and calm atmosphere that pleasantly departs from the hustle and bustle of the CBD.
Nonetheless, Fairfield stays close to the city through an efficient train service connecting it to all its conveniences and luxuries. The same system brings sporting and cultural facilities and a thriving commercial area within reach, with Station St. being one of the best local shopping strips in Melbourne.
But even without relying on public transportation, residents can walk to its many amenities with ease. At their own time and pace, locals can visit parks, children’s playgrounds, tennis courts, schools, restaurants, Cook Street Village’s shops, Moss Street Farmers Market, the Victoria Lawn Bowling Club, and even Downtown Victoria and the Inner Harbour, Fairfield’s cultural vein that offers live theater and music events.
If you prefer staying at home to work on residential improvements, you can find everything any builder needs at ASH Refillery and Co. Maybe after all the dust has settled you can buy a book or two at Books & Shenanigans for your late-night reads.
Favored by young families and empty nesters, Fairfield humbly offers all that our modern hearts desire.
Come and visit Fairfield! Who knows? You just might decide to stay.
