Situated in the inner-west of Melbourne is the charming suburb of Kensington. This spot is home to busy professionals and young couples who enjoy the quiet of suburban life and proximity (4 kilometers) to the excitement of Melbourne's CBD. The blocks radiating out from the local train station are filled with the hustle and bustle of colorful cafés, eateries, and shopping strips owned by Cantonese and Vietnamese immigrants.
The streets of Kensington are lined with Edwardian and Victorian era homes, apartments and workers' cottages. Most residents live in detached single family homes and townhomes, or cozy apartments. About 10 percent of the housing market belongs to University of Melbourne, RMIT and Victoria University students. Even though Kensington is only a few minutes from Melbourne, rent and mortgages are affordable.
