Place

These are images of our place, taken from the real estate pages when it was advertised for sale. Today, it has different furniture, and is full of textiles and books.

Among the things we like about it:

  • it is open and light
  • great place for parties
  • the high ceilings in the main room
  • the two huge verandahs, with tilework on the floors
  • the gracious old building, once a Children’s Hospital
  • the timber floors
  • the simplicity

It’s central. We can walk to:

  • two great bookstores
  • Cinema Nova
  • These great precincts:
    • Lygon Street
    • Smith Street
    • Johnston Street
    • Gertrude Street
  • Carlton Gardens
  • Melbourne Uni
  • RMIT
  • The Museum of Melbourne
  • The CBD
  • Victoria Markets
  • Tramlines

We don’t need to own a car, but use the following modes of transport:

  • our feet (mostly)
  • our two bikes
  • trams
  • taxis
  • flexicar
