Dee Why

Sydney Northern Harbour Suburbs

North of “The Coathanger” really suits those who can afford the best in harbourside living, and that means the unsurpassed quality of Dee Why bathroom renovations. Relax in a bubble bath, taste the Taittinger and watch our vibrant, living harbour. Nobody knows you’re naked…except, maybe, the person filling the next flute.

From Chinamans Beach to Lavender Bay, Sydney’s North Shore is Old Money, and highly sought after by career executives, dynasty families and super, superannuated retirees.

Less frenetic than the East, and liberal with a great big capital ‘L’ the northern suburbs claim  stunning water views to the city, and direct harbour access – like the foreshore walk from Freshwater to Dee Why.  Northern harbour suburbs include McMahons Point, Waverton, Milsons Point, Spit Junction, and Cremorne Point. Each has enviable parks, and beaches abound – Chinamans, Edwards, Clifton Gardens, and Whiting – or have your sensational Dee Why bathroom renovations inspired by a naked swim at Obelisk. The Fairlight, Balgowlah, Clontarf, Careening Cove, and The Spit all have marinas and boating clubs. Ferries, buses, water taxis and Uber provide fast and reliable access to the city, and if you think you’ve missed a few too many Question Times, take a stroll or the bus to Taronga Zoo.

The North Shore has plenty of restaurants, shopping strips and centres. Balmoral has always been considered the best harbour beach because of the exquisite fine dining of Wildwater Grill, The Italian Room, Stella Blu, and Twenty Four Restaurant and Bar.

The Harbour Tunnel and Eastern Distributor make it a 30-minute drive to Sydney Airport out of peak hour. The area is well serviced by medical facilities, particularly the Dee Why Medical Centre.

As always, property averages vary by suburb on the north shore. Cremorne Point has few houses, with the median price for an apartment now demanding a tidy $1,3,000,000. To be sitting pretty in a Dee Why house – $3.725 million: worlds away from 2006 when an apartment  would set you back $500,000 and in Manly Vale, houses averaged $950,000.  Back when webcam was new and Crocs were newly ugly, $650,000 was all you needed for a Kirribilli apartment. Brookvale and Dee Why had studios for less than $250,000 –  staggering when you think that in 2017 a car space in Mantra 2 Bond St, Sydney hit the market at $400,000. Dee Why offers it all in terms of property choice: apartments in need of restyling and complete bathroom renovation; the timeless beauty of Art Deco – and multimillion-dollar Federation and Victorian homes, townhouses, and semis. The North Shore represents better value for money for water views than the eastern foreshore.

The pros? There’s enormous choice in the number and type of property available. The already high prices consistently increase, as does the addictive convenience of city living. Cons? A high entry price and often fairly close living – don’t expect a big backyard – or a conversation with your neighbours. To be a true Dee White is to be a bubble within the bubble; bursting with ambition, financial determination and a sense of community replaced with entitlement.

Minutes by ferry, moments by car, Sydney’s great when you’re convinced you’re the best in the best getting the best, just north of the city.
