Just a short distance from Melbourne’s CBD, yet far enough removed to embrace the green environs of the Yarra River, which hugs its southern border – Hawthorn is perfectly positioned for those seeking an inner-city lifestyle with a little extra breathing space and touch of nature.
In addition to being aesthetically appealing with a rich history – abundant with exceptional Victorian homes, architectural buildings and tree-lined streets – the suburb measures highly in terms of amenities, transport and safety. Marshall White Director, Duane Wolowiec, believes it is these factors that make Hawthorn such a desirable suburb. ‘It is only 7kms from the city. With the central position of Hawthorn Station, Auburn Station on the fringe, and many tram options, it is so easy to get around with public transport. It’s also surrounded by parklands, is packed with great cafes and encompasses Melbourne’s finest schooling options,’ says Duane, who has lived in Boroondara with his family for many years. ‘It’s a safe, family environment. It has been the perfect spot for us,’ he says.
As a sales agent, Duane has seen a growing number of investors interested in the community. ‘It is a fantastic suburb for capital appreciation and always provides great resale value in any market conditions, due to the high demand,’ he says. With low vacancy rates, we continue to see high numbers of perspective tenants.
Swinburne University of Technology, located on Burwood Road, is a contributing factor to the high tenancy demands in the area, with many tertiary students studying, working and living locally.
It is the combination of endearing characteristics, lifestyle luxuries and practical conveniences that make Hawthorn such a desirable locale.
