Heritage streets and city convenience
Hawthorn is just east of the city and is the perfect blend of leafy green suburb and city convenience. Right next to Richmond and a stone throw away from Camberwell, it is close to excellent shopping and cafes.
On Burwood Road, you’ll find students flocking to Swinburne University. This is one of the older suburbs where you will find prestigious mansions. Hawthorn has its fair share of Victorian-era single-fronted cottages. As well, there are flats and apartments, which sprung up between the world wars and again in the 1970s.
Hawthorn is serviced by trams, trains and buses.
To buy into Hawthorn the median property price is $2,000, 000 and to rent it is $699 per week (March 2019 data Hometrack and realestate.com.au)
