We have a 90 degree view to the east and south from our balcony. Sadly not city views as folk on the other side of the building see. I like our views so much. They were what sold me with buying this place when I wasn't particularly interested in high rise living. I've always been happy wherever we have lived and so it has been R who has pushed for change and he still makes a feeble attempt, mentioning a small modern new place with a courtyard. I say nah. We live in a building that only step or so short of low level supported retirement living.
From the bedrooms we have views to the south west to the west too.
Looking down south along St Kilda Road. We can see a lot more in winter when the trees are leafless. Although we are officially in summer, we have received good rain thanks to the La Nina weather system and everything is looking lush. Four days of nearly 40 degrees can change that quickly, perhaps with a massive leaf drop by the elm and plane trees.
