Fitzroy North

Print This Post Print This Post

4km North east of Melbourne’s CBD with a population of 11,069. (2006 Census.) Fitzroy is evenly split between those who rent and those who own. Falling close to the city, yet not overly industrial in nature with a distinctive residential feel, Fitzroy commands high property prices and remains in high demand. The streets are narrow – tree lined with period architecture. Edinburgh Gardens is possibly the highlight of the suburb.  The park  features festivals, a bowling green, a skating park and BBQ areas – and much more besides.  The recreational activities on offer reflect the diversity and ethnicity of the area.

House Styles:

The residential architecture is made up of period Victorian and Edwardian single fronted terrace designs – one and two story. Land sizes are small mostly ranging from 150-300 sqm, with off street parking facilities a rare bonus. There are some apartment blocks, and a few modern town houses, however as the suburb largely falls under heritage overlay, development is restricted to fit in with the historical nature of the suburb.
