Caulfield South is home to the Caulfield General Medical Centre, which began life as one of the local mansions, the Glen Eira. The mansion was purchased in 1915 by the Australian Department of Defence and turned into No. 11 Army General Hospital where it served as a rehabilitation centre for returned servicemen from the Great War who sustained permanent or severe injuries. It has since undergone many changes of purpose and management and currently caters primarily for rehabilitation and geriatric medicine. Caulfield South has many parks and gardens, the most notable of which is Princes Park. The area was a council landfill up until the middle of the twentieth century, when it was transformed into public park lands. It has been improved further and now includes several ovals and playing fields, sports clubs, pavillons, open spaces, children's playgrounds and many paved walking tracks with dog walking welcome.
The architecture of Caulfield South is predominately period-style detached 2 and 3 bedroom family homes with both front and rear gardens. The architectural styles range from the early 1900s and onwards with common styles being Edwardian weather board to Californian Bungalow to Red Brick Clinker pairs which share a common wall. An increasing trend of development is the demolition of the original house to construct a large, two storey modern house. There are also a growing number of higher density apartments and flats appearing, especially close to the transport.
