When it comes to Bellevue Hill houses, ‘stately, opulent and impressive’ are the words that spring to mind. And it is mostly houses that populate this elevated locale bordered by Bondi, Woollahra, Rose Bay, Double Bay and Point Piper. Bellevue Hill has a rich history dating back to before 1800 and has been called home by much of the Australian aristocracy since.
Bellevue Hill is consistently ranked as one of Australia’s most expensive suburbs to buy in, comprised of many large land holdings and stately heritage homes, steeped in history.
It is suburbia on steroids. Whilst the suburb itself has a quiet, almost reclusive ambiance it is perfectly positioned to access everything that is good about Eastern suburbs life.
Bondi Beach lies moments to the South, the harbour and its walks, views and protected beaches are moments to the North, the cosmo shopping and nightlife of Double Bay is a stroll away, it’s all there on one’s doorstep.
And if all the nearby activities get a little too hustle bustle before you head back to the compound you have the option to stroll through the serene Coopers Park, which may as well be a million miles from anywhere with its lush green trails.
Although statement and trophy homes dominate the landscape here, there is also a scattering of mostly art deco apartments on Birriga Rd and close to New South Head Rd for those seeking an entry point to this illustrious suburb without the eye watering price tag.
One does not ‘find’ a home in Bellevue Hill, one buys into Bellevue Hill. Purchasing a home in Bellevue Hill is for those who have arrived. Real estate is procured, negotiated, wrested from the hands of the local custodians, and best accessed by experienced buyers connected to the Bellevue Hill scene.
For Bellevue Hill and surrounding suburbs choosing a local buyers agent connected with the area will be the most effective way to secure the home you love at the right price.
