As I work locally and my hours are varied and flexible, I am often in and out or close by. I'm usually just a phone call away and happy to help you with any quires.
When I'm home I do like to relax or sometimes Im busy potting around or happy to share a cup of tea or have quick chat in passing...
What can I say?… this is the Inner North.
Oh how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Just walk out of the front door, point in any direction and walk. You will surly end up at an amazing spot. Just ask me for some tips!
The whole area and surrounding suburbs are rich in culture, diversity, art, music, design, and fun. Fitzroy, Collingwood, Brunswick, East Brunswick, Carlton, North Carlton, Northcote, Westgarth, and the City are all just 2 to 20 minutes away.
Centrally located in the hub of everything cool, hip and groovy, this home is in a relatively quiet street, used by the locals as the main cyclist route from Brunswick, straight through to the city.
Everything you need is literally around the corner.
Within a block you will find:
Public transports, late-night supermarkets, specialty stores, organic stores, delicatessen, bakeries, chemist, dry cleaner, banks, ATM's, post office.
Green Park (St. Ali's) Cafè opens at 7am and the iconic Danny's Burger's closes at 3am.

….and the lane ways are all a walk away.

Born in Melbourne- A real "North-sider". I have lived and worked in Fitzroy and around the Inner-North all of my adult life (over thirty years)
Its been wonderful to watch this side of the city morph into the vibrant place it has become.
Always out and about, I love this place!
Yes, I generally walk, cycle and tram everywhere.
I speak fluent Italian -its my mother tongue, and I can get around a little French and Spanish too.
I've always been involved in the community as a trader and a participant so I really enjoy and love this artistic and colourful place as my own. Ask me anything!
I really enjoy people and am happy to share some of the local stories and history with you.
