HABERFIELD At A Glance
Haberfield is all about heritage-listed homes, manicured gardens and seriously good Italian food. Although small in size, Haberfield village packs a punch when it comes to traditional Italian cooking and pasticcerias. Food aside, Haberfield has retained its garden suburb status and its tree-lined streets have wonderful examples of Federation-era architecture.
Immaculate gardens and heritage-listed homes.
Taking over from its neighbour, Haberfield is the new Little Italy of Sydney with paticcerias and delicatessens mastering Nonna style cooking.
Homes must adhere to council guidelines which dictate the colour of paint and the kind of roof tiles used on the exterior.
Haberfield’s European influence makes this small neighbourhood a popular stop for food lovers.
The cluster of Italian infused shopfronts along Ramsay Street have stolen the show from Leichhardt. Family-run businesses have been feeding locals for generations. Delis, pasticcerias and restaurants – Haberfield boasts some of the finest traditional Nonna-style Italian food.
Great food, wide streets, Haberfield is one good looking suburb that has its own slither of waterfront on Iron Cove, where small boats are moored and the University of Technology Sydney rowers are out at the crack of dawn.
The neighbourhood has well-kept parks on three sides that provide playgrounds for families and fitness junkies. Dobroyd Point and Robson Park form part of the popular Bay Run and there are barbeque facilities and small boat access to the bay.
A well-established neighbourhood with a distinct European flavour, Haberfield is home to many families as well as empty nesters reluctant to let go of their family homes.
The Bay Run is a 7 kilometre trail that runs around Iron Cove, never deviating more than 20 metres from the water. You can start and finish your loop at any point along the trail.
RAMSAY STREET VILLAGE
This village may be small in size but it’s full of Italian-inspired delis, bakeries, pasticcerias and restaurants. The great thing is, you can either buy the freshest pasta and antipasto in town to cook yourself, or have it cooked for you.
Locals are proud of their Federation-style homes and keep them beautifully maintained.
Federation-style architecture is one of Haberfield’s most endearing features. The area is heritage listed and homes with manicured gardens line leafy streets, no two exactly alike.
