St Kilda West is close enough to St Kilda to walk to all the fashionable cafe’s and bars, but far away enough to not notice the prostitutes and drug dealers. It’s such a great place to live, across the road from the beach, as I was, and I know this street is one block away from the beach, so it wouldn’t have hurt to to live in a home like this one!
This home reminds of that movie, not sure why, it just does!
