"Between the golden mile streets of Elsternwick hides a real gem..."

Nestled between the two premier streets in Elsternwick lies a hidden gem...Regent street. It's lined with wall to wall Victorian homes built two centuries ago...and to this day only half are still untouched by renovators hands. Note: Some still have that 50s look about them.

But alas...there is a hype of activity in the street as 5 homes in the street are going under major renovations. House prices have really soared in the past few years...only recently a house sold for $1.89 million purchased by a high profile recording artist. Only one street across in Elizabeth St houses one of Australia's most popular TV stars...I won't say who but here's a clue..."loike at moi Kimmoi:! Ok so that was a bad send up!

We're only new to the street but we know more people here than when we did in 5 years living in Elwood in an apartment block of approximately the same population. A lot of the people have been here for some time...and there's one thing you never ask...how much they bought their properties for...it'll make you cry. But alas...it's all worth it for a street that has great nuances...it's leafy...it even still has the original blue stone gutters...and so much more.

It's a multicultural melting pot...Greeks...Italians...Chinese...German...Yanks...Jews...one Latvian and even a Queenslander happily reside in Regent Street.

I could go on...but I really should attend to my renovations...:)
