Caulfield is a sprawling, multi-faceted suburb with something for everyone. Encompassing four suburbs, Caulfield, Caulfield North, Caulfield East and Caulfield South, this handy inner location is approximately 13kms from the CBD. Caulfield has one of the most efficient public transport systems, with easy access to trains, trams, busses and dedicated bike paths.
Caulfield’s streets are pretty, green and prestigious, dense with immaculate period family homes, from California bungalows to mid-century houses and handsome Edwardians, with good-sized gardens.
From mansions to Californian bungalows, to townhouses and contemporary architectural structures, Caulfield homes are as diverse as the people who live in them. You’ll also find some beautiful Art Deco apartments and cute retro units in the smaller streets and many contemporary apartment developments on the main thoroughfares like Balaclava, Inkerman and Hawthorn Roads.
In Caulfield we typically help clients with a vast range of needs from modernising their existing home to building their dream house. Blockout lined curtains are popular in formal rooms and blockout roller blinds with sheer curtains over the top are popular in extensions and new homes.
