"Another "Cookie Cutter" house style street...but still pretty good"
All the street in this section of Port Melbourne have one thing in common....the design. In Pier Street, the houses aren't really modern, in fact most are a very weird yellow brick color. I really don't like it. But that's just my taste :) not sure if this would be good for resale value either...as each house doesn't look unique.
You do get however amazingly manicured gardens, and what looks to be a very friendly neighborhood. Amazing location, right near Beach Street with all the great amenities, and just a quick stroll down to the beach in summer. There is also a heap of on street parking, so no problems there either. Overall, if the design of the houses could be a little better, I would give it a 4/5 but unfortunately, I just don't like the look of same style house over and over.
