5 Reasons to Move to Brighton

In today’s blog, C&G focuses on the ever-popular suburb of beachy, beautiful Brighton – revealing why this popular Bayside community deserves its celebrity recognition.

 Brighton is synonymous with luxury living against the beautiful backdrop of Melbourne’s sandy beaches. Over 23,000 residents share the exclusive 3186 postcode – a diverse suburb that families, singles and couples have made their home. Known as a glamorous hub for Melbourne’s celebrities, Brighton is a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood with a strong sense of community. Wondering if Brighton might be your new home? C&G list five reasons why this Bayside area is such a great place to live:

1.  Brighton’s Unique Architecture

Brighton’s diverse architecture makes it one of Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs. From Victorian and Edwardian period homes to modern townhouses and apartments – the Brighton streetscape is unique and attractive. 

2.  Brighton Beach Boxes

These colorful Victorian beach huts (82 to be exact!) have been featured on thousands of Melbourne postcards. The famous beach boxes are located at Dendy Beach, which enjoys terrific city views and is a prime destination for kite surfers. 

3.  Church Street

Church Street is the shopping, dining and entertainment precinct of Bayside Melbourne. Kickstart your day with a wholesome all-day breakfast at the Brighton Schoolhouse, followed by shopping at homewares store, Minimax. Peckish for afternoon tea? Why not end the day with a delicious treat from the iconic Pantry Delicatessen?

4.  Schools

Brighton is renowned for its offering of quality schools. With fantastic primary and secondary schools available in the area, it’s no wonder why Brighton is an area so popular with families. Many Brighton schools are within walking distance of public transport, so you can forget carpooling or early morning drop offs!

5.  Healthy Living

Quit your gym membership – as Brighton is a veritable outdoor gymnasium without the expensive costs of gym equipment or admission! Go cycling or jogging along Beach Road tracks, grab a boogie board and hit up the surf, or play a game of summer cricket at Elsternwick Park – dare to mix up your exercise regime with these fantastic Brighton options.
