clifton hill Suburb Profile & Review

Considered one of Melbourne's most liveable suburbs, Clifton Hill can be found in the city's north-east, near Fitzroy North. Though once a working-class suburb, the area's scenic village atmosphere now attracts professionals and young bohemians. It is primarily comprised of lovely single and double storey terrace houses.

Queens Parade with its Victorian-era shopfronts has a modest selection of cafes, restaurants, bistros and pubs, such as the Clifton Hill Hotel. Thriving shopping districts along Smith Street and Brunswick Street are minutes away. Darling Gardens and nearby Fairfield Park are both picturesque areas for walking, picnics and bike rides. Fitness enthusiasts can find aerobics classes and swimming facilities at the Collingwood Leisure Centre, on the corner of Hoddle and Turnbull Streets.

The public transport needs of residents are more than met. The Eastern Freeway terminates at Alexandra Parade, providing easy access to the eastern suburbs. Tram route 86 runs along Queens Parade from Bundoora to the Docklands. Clifton Hill Station is serviced by both the Epping and Hurstbridge lines, so trains are frequent, and they take only ten minutes to reach the city.

clifton hill 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.
