& surrounds

Essendon, with its beautiful tree lined streets and immaculately restored and renovated heritage homes, certainly lives up to its ‘Toorak of the North’ nickname.

Melbourne has an impressive list of national and international accolades; Top Destination, World Leader in Community Engagement, Business, Climate Leadership and Sports, 

Melbourne was voted ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ by The Economist Intelligence Unit for seven consecutive years from 2011 to 2017.

It’s no wonder that as Melbourne continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, Essendon and the inner North-West are now more sought after than ever.
