Sydney Eastern Harbour Suburbs
East of “The Coathanger” really suits those who can afford the best in harbourside living, and that means the unsurpassed quality of Vaucluse 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 Hermitage Foreshore Reserve to Gibson Beach, Sydney’s East Shore is Old Money, and highly sought after by career executives, dynasty families and super, superannuated retirees.
Less frenetic than the West, and liberal with a great big capital ‘L’ the eastern suburbs claim stunning water views to the city, and direct harbour access – like the foreshore walk from Watson Bay to Vaucluse. Eastern harbour suburbs include Darling Point, Woollahra, Woolloomooloo, Bondi, and Potts Point. Each has enviable parks, and beaches abound – Beach Paddock, Nielsen Park, Shark Beach and Parsley Bay Reserve – or have your sensational Vaucluse bathroom renovations inspired by a naked swim at Obelisk. The Double Bay, Rushcutters Bay, Point Piper, and Dover Heights 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 East Shore has plenty of restaurants, shopping strips and centres. Gibsons Beach has always been considered the best harbour beach because of the exquisite fine dining of The Tea Garden, Dunbar House, and Doyles on the Beach Restaurant.
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 Rose Bay Medical Clinic.
As always, property averages vary by suburb on the east shore. Dover Heights has few houses, with the median price for an apartment now demanding a tidy $1,3,000,000. To be sitting pretty in a Vaucluse house – $3.725 million: worlds away from 2006 when an apartment would set you back $500,000 and in Dover Heights, houses averaged $950,000. Back when webcam was new and Crocs were newly ugly, $650,000 was all you needed for a Vaucluse apartment. Rose Bay and Double Bay had studios for less than $250,000 – staggering when you think that in 2017 a car space in Wilson Parking – 33 Cross St, Sydney hit the market at $400,000. Vaucluse 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 East 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 Vauclusite is to be a bubble within the bubble; bursting with ambition, financial determination and a sense of community replaced with entitlement.
