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 Mona Vale 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 Mona Vale Beach to Winnererremy 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 Collaroy to Mona Vale. Northern harbour suburbs include Newport, Bilgola Beach, Avalon Beach, Whale Beach, and Clareville. Each has enviable parks, and beaches abound – Winnererremy Bay, Mona Vale Beach, Clifton Apex Park, and Passmore Reserve– or have your sensational Mona Vale bathroom renovations inspired by a naked swim at Obelisk. The Spit, Mona Vale, Church Point, Careening Cove, and Kirribilli 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 The Herring Room, Hugos Manly, and The Pantry Manly.
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 Mona Vale 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 Mona Vale house – $3.725 million: worlds away from 2006 when an apartment would set you back $500,000 and in Neutral Bay. houses averaged $950,000. Back when webcam was new and Crocs were newly ugly, $650,000 was all you needed for a Kirribilli apartment. Dee Why and Mona Vale 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. Mona Vale 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 Mona Valite is to be a bubble within the bubble; bursting with ambition, financial determination and a sense of community replaced with entitlement.
