Covering an area of 5.93 sq km and with an average annual population growth rate of 5.1 per cent, St Kilda is characterised by its eclectic blend of retail, residential and entertainment district.
From the Acland and Fitzroy Street precincts to its numerous feature attractions – including the historic Astor cinema, Luna Park, the Palais Theatre, the Espy Hotel and St Kilda Beach – there are plenty of things to like about St Kilda that appeal to both residents and visitors. Whether you’re the type to enjoy a morning run on the waterfront or prefer the vibrant dining and nightlife options the area has to offer (and who’s to say you can’t enjoy both?), there’s something in St Kilda for everyone.
The City of Port Phillip identifies the boundaries of the St Kilda demographic neighbourhood as Chapel and Inkerman Streets (and Brighton Road) to the east, Cowderoy Street and the St Kilda foreshore to the west. To the north, St Kilda is bordered by Nelson Street, Queens Road Longmore Street and the Albert Park Reserve, while Milton, Dickens and Mitford Streets border it to the south.
Property in St Kilda is a diverse blend of old and new. The area, according to the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, has one of the highest concentrations of single-occupant homes in Melbourne.
While apartments and flats from the 1950s and ’60s give the community plenty of character, residents here also enjoy a diverse range of housing stock, including larger homes dating from the Edwardian and Victorian eras, as well as many properties with original Art Deco features.
At Ray White St Kilda, we not only work in the immediate St Kilda area, but also nearby St Kilda East – one of the most densely-populated communities within the City of Port Phillip – and the bayside suburb of Elwood/Ripponlea, which is characterised by its relatively young population and high concentration of young families and residents between the ages of 25 and 34.
We also cater to the inner-city communities of Southbank and Port Melbourne – and our agents are focused on achieving the best possible results for our clients. Whether you are looking to buy, rent or sell, or even for assistance with investment property management, the team at Ray White St Kilda is ready to help.
