Lifestyle

A quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of its neighbours, Woollahra exudes beauty, both on and off the streets. With mature trees that merge into welcoming archways along the streets, Woollahra boasts heritage-listed homes with manicured gardens, Victorian cottages, ornate Art Deco apartment conversions and several international consulates that are housed in beautifully-converted homes.

With all its style and elegance, Queen Street is home to Sydney’s best high-end boutique shopping, drawing well-heeled shoppers into the fold. Armani Junior, Herringbone and MJ Bale sit amongst gourmet delicatessens, and Victor Churchill – butchery taken to a whole new level.

Amongst all this, there is still space to step away from it all and stretch out. The hidden bushland sanctuary of Harbourview Park and the expansive parklands of neighbouring Cooper Park and Centennial Park are places where you can unwind and relax or choose to get the heart rate pumping.

If all this wasn’t enough, depending on their mood, locals can indulge in incredible dining at places such as the greenhouse-style restaurant, Chiswick or relax in old fashioned English-style pubs such as the beloved Lord Dudley Hotel.

Woollahra is one of Sydney’s neighbourhood gems that is refined yet laid-back and welcoming.

Art galleries, antique dealers, high-end fashion, gourmet delicatessens and a lively café scene – Woollahra is an easy place to while away hours, even days. When seeking a different pace, locals are spoiled by their location, with Centennial Park, Oxford Street and Bondi all on their doorstep.

Neighbours

Popular with Sydney’s elite, Woollahra has been home to many celebrities and politicians who love both the prestige, lifestyle and proximity of the area to the city.

Well-established and affluent professionals, families and empty nesters also find a place in one of the heritage-listed homes, Victorian cottages and Art Deco conversions that line the leafy streets.

Locals love

Sprinkled throughout Woollahra, a variety of independent art galleries – with Olsen Irwin, Dickerson, Fellia Melas and Sotheby’s galleries at the forefront – host exhibitions that showcase emerging and established artists from Australia and abroad.

Renowned and independent brands sit side by side along Queen Street and Edgecliff Road, offering the best high-end shopping experience in fashion, homewares, interiors and antiques.

Streets lined with mature trees provide charm and beauty that captivates the locals and visitors.

Known as the People’s Park, this 189 hectares of expansive green space is one of Sydney’s gems. It’s a place to picnic with family and friends or get the heart rate pumping by cycling, jogging or horse riding. During the warmer months, you can watch a favourite movie at the Moonlight Cinema. Year round, the park provides educational programs about the environment and sustainability.

Property

Woollahra boasts a juxtaposition of architectural styles that speaks to the neighbourhood’s evolving history. With the mature trees that form lush archways along Wellington, Fullerton and Queen Streets, Woollahra is an area to soak up the ambiance and beauty of the heritage-listed homes and Victorian cottages.

Westbourne House and Selby House along Jersey Street are beautiful examples of sandstone homes, whilst Queen Street, Ocean and Edgecliff Roads have it all, from Art Deco conversions, terrace houses, luxurious gated residences to colonial homes. Stroll along Moncur Street for restored double storey Victorian terrace houses.

East of Edgecliff Road, multi-storey homes cling to the hillside, many with harbour glimpses. Small cottages and contemporary homes line the meandering streets, whilst tall blond-brick and contemporary apartment complexes sprout up along the northern end of Edgecliff Road.
