Melbourne’s eclectic inner north. The once-industrial working class suburbs of Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs including North Melbourne, Parkville, Carlton, Fitzroy, Northcote, Coburg, Collingwood, Preston, Thornbury, Brunswick, Princes Hill and Hotham Hill, have been inventing and reinventing themselves since colonial times.
Like most places, a quick glance at the built environment of these interesting suburbs with their mix of warehouses, factories, single-fronted homes and larger dwellings tells just one tiny snippet of a fascinating past. But it’s the brilliant diversity of the people and local artisan businesses across these suburbs that really make these colourful places come to life.
Today’s property market reflects the popularity of this region. It’s the only place that has trams, trains and buses, two beautiful local creeks, well-maintained bike paths and lots of green spaces all less than 10kms from Melbourne’s CBD.
Students love living close to the universities which is great news for investors, while a little further out, in places like Brunswick, Thornbury and Preston with their great local schools, close-knit communities and customer-centric local businesses, make these areas a natural choice for young families and everyone in between.
Whether you are looking for a low-maintenance unit, a modern apartment or a period home, this area has it all. And whether you want to make this part of the world home, or are tempted to add to your investment portfolio, there is sure to be something to take your eye.
It’s great news if you’re selling property in Melbourne’s inner north. Right now, properties are being snapped up in a few short weeks. Despite a bumpy year for the property market, a string of inner suburbs have seen huge house price jumps.
Collingwood alone recorded sale rises of between 29.6 and 36.5 per cent in the median house prices for the year to September compared with 2019.
