On the north shore of Sydney Harbour, Neutral Bay has earned a reputation for being the ideal locale for professionals and families on the go. Cafés and eateries along Military Road feed the commuters stepping off the buses at the busy junction. Step away from the main strip and you’ll find leafy streets lined with historic cottages, lofty apartments and waterside mansions along beautiful Sydney Harbour.
Neutral Bay lures professionals and young families with its mouth-watering eateries, plentiful green spaces, access to much sought-after schools and incredible vistas of the city skyline and Sydney Harbour. If this wasn’t enough, busy professionals who are always on the go only have to endure a 20-minute commute to the city.
The junction has three major supermarkets, cafés and intimate eateries with a particular preference for Japanese food. The main standout is the local watering hole, The Oaks Hotel, with its multiple bars, function space and popular beer garden beneath a fairy lit oak tree.
Step away from the main strip and Neutral Bay takes on a completely different feel. The quiet meandering streets have historic cottages, lofty apartments, Federation and contemporary mansions most with views or, at the very least, glimpses of the city skyline and Sydney Harbour.
There are multiple access points to the harbour at Neutral Bay Wharf, Kurraba Point Wharf and Kurraba Point Reserve. Neutral Bay Wharf is home to the local hangout, Thelma & Louise Café which looks out over moored yachts and a local beach. Weekends and summer evenings can be easily wiled away at Kurraba Point Reserve.
New developments are sprouting up along Military Road around the main shopping and dining district. Step off the main strip and historic cottages with tin roofs nestle in between clusters of multi-level terrace houses along Ben Boyd Road.
A combination of traditional high-rise apartments, low-level Art Deco and contemporary-designed apartments sit amongst Federation homes and cottages along Montpelier and Spruson Streets – highly desirable for their city skyline views and access to Forsyth Park.
Roll further down the steep streets towards the water’s edge where Californian bungalows and Federation sandstone homes and modern mansions reign supreme. Beautiful small, renovated apartment blocks sit atop rocky outcrops along the harbourside where real estate is highly sought-after for its harbour and city skyline vistas.
