towering North Sydney behind and expansive Sydney Harbour views in front, the
village-like atmosphere of McMahons Point is a quiet haven away from the hustle
and bustle of its neighbouring suburbs. Locals while away time in their
favourite restaurant or along the foreshore parks.
Within easy walking distance to North Sydney and a quick
ferry ride to the CBD, locals can be among the hustle and bustle as quickly as
they can retreat back to the quiet village-like atmosphere of McMahons Point.
Blues Point Road is home to restaurants with reputations
that attract foodies from all over. Stroll down the hill to Blues Point
Reserve, a popular outlook that offers unparalleled views of Sydney Harbour and
Walsh Bay. This is a very popular spot to watch fireworks during the festive
Neighbouring Sawmill Reserve looks out over
Berrys Bay, Pyrmont and Balmain, offering green space to picnic and enjoy
active play with family and friends.
The McMahons Point property market can swing from one
extreme to the other, from the award-winning residence at 10 Mitchell Street
which shows how contemporary modern living can blend seamlessly with a 1900s
cottage, to the looming eyesore of Blues Point Tower.
Historic cottages with sandstone features which have been
beautifully renovated and maintained are scattered throughout the
neighbourhood. Contemporary homes sit alongside low-level Art Deco apartments.
Closer to the water Mediterranean- style apartments are in abundance, whilst
Victorian terrace houses that have elaborate wrought-iron balcony frameworks
line Victoria Street and Blues Point Road.
