North Melbourne Townhouse
No surprise, I am a HUGE fan of North Melbourne and my townhouse. Some little facts:
- 187 Abbotsford Street, is in fact the storage shed of one of Melbourne's last tramhouses (the façade at the entrance is the only remaining part of the structure). Tramhouses provided the power for Melbourne's cable tram system at the turn of the 20th century.
- The median price of a house in North Melbourne is 545000; the population is just over 9000 people, 42% are aged between 18-35
- Only 10% of people living in North Melbourne are owner-occupiers (so a very transient population), 40% are professionals, and the top 10% of income earners are above the national average
- And as an aside, it also has an above average crime rate - 337 incidents per 1000 people, so I guess I have a 1-in-3 chance of being robbed!
