The inner north Fitzroy, Carlton and FITZROY NORTH topped the list of Melbourne’s top 50 most liveable suburbs.

They all scored 9.8 to top the list given connectivity and proximity to facilities such as public transport, healthcare services, shopping outlets, schools, parks, and walkability.

But there are more affordable suburbs within the top 50 list.

The system, using geospatial data from proptech firm propella.ai, measures the connectivity of a local area in relation to a range of amenities located within a 20-minute walk.

CoreLogic’s Head of Data Products James Vaughan said the liveability score featured on the onthehouse website was a valuable insight to help buyers and renters assess various locations when looking for a property. 

“Liveability has been identified as a key factor in determining the appeal of an area, and providing these insights to users is designed to help them make more informed decisions, amongst many other factors, about where to buy, rent or invest,” Mr Vaughan said. 

According to propella.ai’s liveability ratings system, Melbourne’s top 50 most liveable suburbs range in score from 7.8 for Preston in 50th spot in the city’s north.

Heidelberg and Essendon were at 7.9 where there are a number of developments on the market under $400,000 including Cultivate, at Heidelberg West by Kincaid Projects

Situated on the fringe of Melbourne's top hospital precinct, minutes from La Trobe University and at the quiet, tree-lined end of Bell Street, the development features 146 apartments across two towers.

Due North, Preston by Caydon Property has one-bedroom apartments from $352,000 at 70-82 High Street.

Climbing 12 levels and comprising 107 apartments, Due North is a new fur-friendly apartment complex.
