Melbourne’s most expensive suburb remains…

Toorak, with a median house value of $2.92m.key 2014

The median sale price, which reflects the prices paid over the last year has for the first time, exceeded $3m.

There are three other suburbs with medians in excess of two million, DeepdeneCanterbury and Kooyong.
