281 is surrounded by an enviable selection of providores, cafes, parklands and style. Flagship supermarkets ( Coles Tooronga & Leo’s ) and the best of Melbourne fashion shopping are all within easy reach.
281 is a short commute to the CBD, either by car, train, tram or bike.
Situated on the border of Malvern & Glen Iris, 281 bridges the divide between stately suburb and emerging urban hub. The new cafe culture is reinvigorating the neighbourhood and creating the unmistakable buzz of a community renewed.
From wine bars to homewares, hand made biscuits to beautiful flowers, endless baristas, Danish designer furniture to regal antiques, pizza to saganaki to crafted cakes. Your new home is surrounded by a thriving hub of entrepreneurs and restaurateurs looking forward to making you acquaintance.
So go forth and redefine your space. Your journey will be different every time, just remember to have a coffee or two along the way.
Immerse yourself in nature: from walking tracks to waterfalls, islands of ducks to pools & trampolines, you are spoilt for choice.
Cycle, run or wander the trails along the Gardiners Creek track, a local gem for families and fitness fanatics alike.
