Wonderfully spacious large light 4 bdrm inner city Edwardian home, great indoor and outdoor entertaining space in the heart of Melbourne's inner north. Parks, cafes & 2 mins from trams and trains for CBD, MCG and Rod Laver Arena in less than 10mins!

The space

Clifton Hill, once home to Melbourne’s bohemian community, is one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets in the inner north. The enclave is characterised by wide, tree-lined streets and notable Victorian & Edwardian architecture. Perfect base for exploring.

Only 5kms to the Melbourne CBD, it has everything at its doorstep; trams, trains, cafes, restaurants, boutiques, parklands, the Yarra River and moments to Mebourne’s iconic sporting precinct.

This beautiful Edwardian home has been lovingly restored and decorated. The clever modern extension adds space and light creating a cool and relaxed inner-urban sanctuary.

Our home gives you plenty of room to spread out and relax. There are a total of 4 bedrooms accommodating up to 7 people. Downstairs you'll find a main open plan living space, second living area with TV and library, bathroom, laundry plus two of the bedrooms. Upstairs there are 2 further bedrooms and a kids retreat with TV, study, and separate bathroom. There is a large sliding door which can be closed to separate the upstairs and downstairs. Perfect for families travelling with children or a group of friends needing some extra space.

The open-plan kitchen, living and dining rooms fill with natural light bringing a sense of warmth and space. The spacious kitchen is appointed with European appliances and overlooks the lush outdoor entertaining area, decks, mature trees, BBQ and veggie garden where you can pick your own herbs and veggies while creating delicious meals!

Our family of six had a wonderful stay in Elise's beautiful home for two weeks. We would certainly recommend the house for families as there is lots of space for everyone. The location is also fabulous, within walking distance to two parks, shops and the train station and only a few train stops to the city. The house has a warm ambience with lovely furniture and spacious light filled living space.

This house is utterly gorgeous. Elise was around to meet and greet us. There are plenty amenities in the house to make it feel like home. The space is lovely and large for 6 people that were staying.

We have just returned from a week in Melbourne for the tennis and could not have asked for a better place to stay. This was our first experience with AirBnB and what a fabulous introduction. The house was simply perfect - beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, every possible convenience had been provided including beans for the coffee maker, freshly delivered milk, and a back garden oasis filled with herbs and home grown veges that we were encouraged to use. So very thoughtful. If only Elise had a house in every location we wanted to travel to! My family all agreed it was an infinitely better option than staying in a hotel or standard soulless apartment. We were very close to the city in a quiet location with a corner store a few doors up and street parking was never a problem. Thank you so much, Elise!

This is a beautiful spacious house, with quiet neighbours, and close but not too close to the train. It has a veggie garden out the back where we cut chives or spring onions each day to add to our food. All the beds were comfortable and all six of us felt very much at home. We would like to return one day. We also found the communication from our hosts was swift whenever we had a query about how to work something. Thanks for having us.
