Elegant and fashionable, Double Bay has a charm that makes Sydneysiders sit up and take notice. High-end designer stores, a deluge of salons and an emerging dining and bar scene are the pulse of this bayside neighbourhood. It’s the French-esque Murray Rose Pool though that steals the show along with the highly-prized foreshore of picturesque Blackburn Cove.
Double Bay is all about living beautifully, from boutique shopping and dining to the elegant foreshore and charming houses that line the leafy streets.
It’s hard to pull yourself away from the village-like setting of Transvaal Avenue with its jaw-dropping collection of designer shops located in beautiful townhouse-style shopfronts. The fashion boutiques along Knox, Cross and Bay Streets will have you slowing your pace to make a few detours into the stores which boast chic labels.
Renowned as much for its dining as it is for its shopping, Double Bay has restaurants that have established names for themselves on Sydney’s fine dining scene. More and more wine bars and hotels are vying for attention as part of Double Bay’s evolving night life.
The relaxing foreshore parks and the much-loved Murray Rose Harbour Pool contribute to an irresistible charm that becomes prized real estate in the warmer months. With easy access to the ferry and boats, locals love to take to the harbour, whether it’s a quick commute to work or for a leisurely weekend sail.
In all its charm and beauty, Double Bay provides an enviable lifestyle and easy access to the best of Sydney, be it the beaches or the CBD.
A well-balanced and seamless mix of Period, Victorian and contemporary homes, cottages and apartments line leafy William, Beach and Stafford Streets. Waterside mansions soak up the views of Blackburn Cove along Gladstone Gardens and Marine Parade. Cross over New South Head Road and beautiful homes flow up the hill towards Woollahra and Bellevue Hill.
