Due Diligence Checklist
Live Like a Local
Life sure is lovely in Brighton. Famous for its brightly-coloured beach boxes that line the sand of one of Melbourne’s most popular swimming destinations, this area is not just a beachside retreat but also a dream home location for many Melburnians. Its glorious bayside strip – known as “The Golden Mile” – is the creme de la creme for Brighton homeowners, with no major roads between their properties and the bay. Between shopping on Bay Street, two cinemas, renowned public and private schools, three railway stations and an abundance of sports, locals here want for nothing.
It’s no wonder that Brighton residents never want to leave.
