I'm a high school assistant principal working in Melbourne. St Leonards has been my home and will always be my place to relax and unwind. Living in Melbourne allows me to enjoy both worlds. The house and garden are constantly maintained and while retaining its original 60s feel, I keep trying to make it more comfortable and appealing for guests. St Leonards is a lovely small community - I hope you enjoy your stay.
