Low-profile Elizabeth Bay sits between eclectic Potts Point and placid Rushcutters Bay. Loved for its location, locals never have to venture too far from home to work or play.
This postcode has the best of both worlds – harbour access and foreshore parks on one side and a vibrant cultural centre on the other. The ability to step into the limelight is one of Elizabeth Bay’s biggest drawcards.
When locals descend from their high-rise apartments, they tend to converge on the cafés and delis, or linger at Beare Park. Although Elizabeth Bay only has a small selection of cafés, locals only have to meander up the street to be immersed in one of Sydney’s café and dining hotspots, Potts Point.
It’s a neighbourhood that has over 90 percent of residents living in multi-dwelling abodes in fewer than 20 streets, so parking is at an absolute premium. Many opt to ditch the car – it’s an easy walk or bike ride to the city.
Apartments of all shapes, sizes and architectural eras make up 90 percent of housing in Elizabeth Bay. Billyard Avenue, The Esplanade and lower Elizabeth Bay Road offer incredible views of Sydney Harbour. Ithaca Road and Onslow and Greenknowe Avenues have views from further back.
This small enclave also has its fair share of waterfront mansions and heritage-listed homes that showcase some of Sydney’s finest architecture, especially Boomerang House on Billyard Avenue and Elizabeth Bay House on Onslow Avenue.
