"Easy Living - Everything at your doorstep!"

As an Investment:
As a property buyers agent at Capital Property Advisory specialising in property investing for large portfolio holders, we have seen immense growth and recommend certain streets in this area to astute investors.

As an Owner Occupier:
I personally lived in Westbury Street, St Kilda East for several years with my children and found this area an ideal location for families, couples and singles as everything is at your door step, such as trams, shops, restaurants, cafes and much more.

The famous Alma Park provides a beautifully treed walking tracks and outstanding play area’s and tree house for children.

All your shopping requirements can be met in Carlisle Street, St Kilda East with supermarkets, fruit shops, butchers, bakeries, banks, chemists, clothing and shoe shops (I recommend you take a look at Unique Shoes), several discount stores, restaurants, cafes and bars.

All transport facilities are within a short walk and I suggest you take a simple tram ride down to St Kilda beach and the wondrous environment that Acland Street, St Kilda has to offer with the highly regarded cafes, bars and restaurants. Located at that end of Acland Street is Luna Park which is a great day out for all children big and small.

"Fun but there are pitfalls"

This is a fun place to live because it's close to lots of interesting places and there are lots of things to do in the surrounding areas. It's also very close to the city, and has great tram and train access. However, my car was robbed several times and our neighbors were noisy and unfriendly. It felt to me like it was a place people didn't really want to live in for long, just a pit stop along the way to somewhere else.
