Set amidst foreshore parks and native bushland, this cluster of prestigious neighbourhoods – Greenwich, Longueville and Riverview – sits on the shores of Lane Cove River. The quiet meandering streets lined with stately homes and hidden natural wonders make this part of Sydney irresistible.
These peninsula neighbourhoods enjoy water views and are surrounded by tranquil bushland and expansive parks. What they lack in village vibrancy they make up for in natural beauty. When they choose to, locals can be immersed in the village ambiance of nearby Lane Cove or Crows Nest within minutes.
Joggers use the many trails that connect the surrounding suburbs and parks. During the warmer months, families splash around at the harbour swimming pool, Greenwich Baths, whilst year-round boats can be launched onto Lane Cove River.
A sprinkling of shops service the local community, whether it be for a caffeine fix at Riverview Deli & Café and 4 Beans Co Company or to pick up basic supplies on the way home from work.
Although tucked away in their own private part of Sydney’s highly desirable water frontage, Greenwich, Longueville and Riverview residents can easily reach Sydney’s CBD within minutes by ferry or bus.
This cluster of neighbourhoods features a mix of architectural styles – Victorian, Georgian, Federation, Californian bungalows and weatherboard cottages. Locals take a lot of pride in their homes and many are undergoing extensive renovations.
Contemporary architecture can also be found in these neighbourhoods. Large family homes take advantage of water views while more modest homes sit further inland.
Kellys Esplanade and Point Road in Longueville, Upper Serpentine Road in Greenwich and Coonah Parade in Riverview have the best direct water access. Arabella Street, Lucretia Avenue and Northwood Road in Longueville and O’Connell Street and Manns Avenue in Greenwich have city and harbour views.
