"One of the best streets in NorthRoy"

I lived here for a couple of years in the lovely leafy east end cul de sac of Holden St. It's really quiet around here (though you can hear the train coming over the nearby bridge over Merry Creek) but also lots of fun. There's the shops and fantastic Burmese takeaway place around the corner on St George's Rd, cycle paths everywhere, pubs not too far away and parks and open space for kids to play in. There's something for everyone here. The public transport is excellent with the trams on Nicholson St and St George's Rd, the bus along Holden St and the train (Rushall station) is a 5 minute walk away. You can even walk over the bridge to Northcote to go to the Westgarth cinema and all the cool cafes around it. There can be a few strange people around from the public housing on the street but they are mostly harmless.

"Expensive, but nice to live in if you like cycling and social life"

Overall a nice place to live - lots of funky vegetarian and vegan restaurants, good coffee shops, and excellent public transport, plus linear parks for cycling.

BTW, I selected options for Resale Value, Child Care, Schools and Pay TV above even though I have no clue about them in this area - however there wasn't any way to select "N/A" that I could find. Sorry!
