carlton north Suburb Profile & Review

Carlton North residents have the best of two worlds. Brunswick Street's vibrant nightlife and Lygon Street's culinary delights are both just a short walk away. This quiet residential suburb is home to professionals, students and families, who all enjoy its quaint Victorian and Edwardian terrace houses.

On Rathdowne Street, residents will find a number of charming cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. Rathdowne Village is also home to the original La Porchetta pizzeria, which has developed into a trans-Tasman franchise with eighty restaurants open today. Other popular eateries include Degani and the 100% gluten free cafe Black Ruby. Two schools are located within the suburb's borders: Princes Hill Secondary College, which recently went under some upgrades, and Carlton North Primary School. Curtain Square is a great park for families which features a fun playground and plenty of room to let your dog run free.

Public transport is never far away. Four tram routes service the suburb: the route 19 tram along Royal Parade, route 1 and route 8 along Lygon Street, and the route 96 along Nicholson Street. A number of bus routes also follow Rathdowne Street and Richardson Street. For those who prefer two wheels, the Capital City Bicycle Trail passes through the area on its way to some of Melbourne's most well-known landmarks.

carlton north Income & Mortgage Stats

To calculate the percentage of income paid towards a mortgage for the suburb of Melbourne, multiply the mortgage payment (e.g. $2450) by 12 then divide this figure by the weekly income (e.g. $1200) multiplied by 52 (weeks) to look like this ($2450 x12/$1200 x 52) x 100 = 47%

Any figure above 30% usually indicates that the suburb you intend to buy in may have property owners with a high incidence of mortgage stress. In terms of maintaining or growing property values in the future and trying to secure a strong property price when selling, this could have an impact, especially in an economic or local industry downturn.
