Armadale

Suburb Profile

Overview

A charming inner-city community favoured by Melbourne’s well to do, picture-perfect Armadale is adored by locals and visitors. Tree-lined, luxurious and leisurely, this idyllic suburb has one thing that sets it apart from the rest – its world-class shopping strip. Home to some of the best boutiques in Melbourne, High Street has become the go-to for fashionistas across the city.

Lifestyle

Lush streets, delightful homes and the kind of neighbourly feel that families just can’t get enough of – there’s a reason Armadale is so well loved by Melbourne’s established set. Add to that a convenient inner-city location and a buzzing café and shopping scene, and there’s not much left to be desired. In fact, the only thing Armadale lacks is nightlife – but that’s all part of its charm.

Armadale’s main artery is the thriving High Street shopping strip and what was once the domain of bridal stores and upmarket antiques has seriously upped its game. In fact, High Street is now home to a veritable who’s who of local and international designers. You name it, they’ve got it. In addition, it still plays host to the beautiful wedding dresses and collectors’ items that first made its name.

The area’s luxe feel is exemplified by the beautiful National Trust-listed Kings Arcade, while more low-key shopping errands can be run just around the corner on Glenferrie Road. Complemented by a booming café scene (offering everything from the strictly organic and gluten-free to the sugar-laden and deep-fried), Armadale certainly has a whole lot going for it.

The Market

The immaculate period homes and stately historic mansions that are scattered throughout Armadale are large and well appointed. Gardens are flourishing, and pools and tennis courts are an expected addition. Kooyong Road is particularly impressive, and boasts some of the city’s most distinguished properties. Needless to say, houses in Armadale don’t come cheap. Contemporary apartments offer a slight change of pace, while smaller terraces and flats round out the mix. Refined yet family-friendly, living in Armadale is a charming prospect.
