Brighton is located 11km from the CBD and is a highly sought after history filled suburb with many large allotments still available. The suburb also offers homes with direct beach access within the Golden Mile. The suburb has two main shopping strips filled with bustling cafes and restraunts including Church Street and Bay Street and is serviced by three train stations and filled with Green leafy parks, many of which are off leash as Bayside city council has the most registered canine companions in any Victorian council. The area is broken into three main areas North Brighton, Middle Brighton and Brighton Beach. Middle Brighton being the oldest of the original subdivision and centers around Church Street. The area is also famous for the Brighton Bathing boxes.
The suburb has a median house price of $2,880,000 and comprised mostly family homes until recently when the council altered the development rules to allow some low density apartments to built allowing a more affordable entry point into the area with a prestige flair.
Why do we like the suburb? Brighton is a prestige market and home to much of Melbourne’s blue chip real estate. The suburb is full of public transport, direct CBD access and the beach is at your door step. Both from a investors point of view and a lifestyle perspective that winning combination is hard to beat.
