Albert Park really is the Melbourne’s postcard suburb for lifestyle. It is a stone’s throw away from the waterfront and a picturesque three-kilometre run, cycle or drive to get to the central business district.
The glorious thing about this location is its broad appeal. It is one of the few suburbs that is flexible enough to suit any stage of life, from single and carefree through to young families and retirees. Any activity, amenity or eatery imaginable is no more than a short stroll or public transport trip away. The need for a car is almost redundant.
The residents of Albert Park, both young and old, radiate a picture of fitness which is telling of the abundance of leisure facilities available to residents. Fitness enthusiasts can practice a spot of golf at the driving range, run the 5 km lake track or enjoy the multitude of water sports activities that are offered on the lake itself, and at the renowned Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
It is a pleasure selling homes in this affluent and sought after pocket of Melbourne, mostly because there is a great deal of pride taken in presenting homes. Beautifully decorated homes are the norm here. The magnificent Victorian and Edwardian townhouses, nestled within the expansive leafy, history-rich streets, are just the start. It is only on a rare occasion that a truly run-down property comes onto the market, so if you reveal in renovating and come across one, cease the moment to buy into the unrivalled lifestyle that Albert Park has to offer.
