N0. 1 Arncliffe. This suburb always appears on the ‘soon-to-be-hot’ list. Incredibly reasonable prices for solid homes close to the CBD. The local school, Arncliffe Public, is well-known for its public speaking, music and language programs.
Arncliffe, 94 Forest Road. For Sale $1.1 – 1.2M. 4 beds, views, close to train.
No. 2 Surry Hills – No longer shoeless kids in laneways. Close to all museums and sporting grounds.
Surry Hills, 115 Goodlet Street. For Sale $1.45M. 3 beds plus parking. Parking nudges this house above other current offers. It has the bones to be a better house. Local school, Bourke St Public, is having a renaissance and their fetes are renowned.
58 Marshall St, Surry Hills – also for sale at $1.45 with 3 beds, a studio but no parking.
No. 3 – Sans Souci. I have an irrational love of this suburb’s name ‘Without Care’.
Staying south of the CBD for a bit more, as the prices are still a tad more reasonable, is this older house with modern extension. Facing north with water views it’s up for auction via McGrath
No. 4 Cammeray. The current lifestyle favourite
16 Alan St, Cammeray 4 beds, spa, water views, north facing, architect involved. Auction with no price indicated.
No 5. Balgowlah Heights – saving the best till last.
25 Ernest St Balgowlah Heights. Anything ‘Hamptons’ in Sydney is a seller. This architect home is a combination of Queenslander and Hamptons. Only thing missing is a pool but that’s my preference For Sale at $2.4M
