Where luxury living meets stunning Sydney Harbour, Point Piper is a small suburb that’s all about grand estates that ooze prestige and exclusivity. Considered one of Australia’s most expensive neighbourhoods, Point Piper is home to Sydney’s elite.
Renowned for being one of Australia’s most expensive postcodes, this luxurious enclave may be small in size, but it more than makes up for it with expansive harbourside mansions that hug the foreshore, enjoying uninterrupted harbour views.
Point Piper is home to the exclusive Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and The Royal Motor Yacht Club of NSW – membership is by invitation only.
Locals and visitors can take to the water by kayak or paddle board from Point Piper Kayak Centre in neighbouring Rose Bay Park. Alternatively, Lady Martin Beach, a small thin stretch of sand and Duff Reserve, loved for weddings, are two hidden gems that provide public access to the harbour.
Point Piper boasts 11 streets, all lined with a mishmash of cutting-edge and Federation homes that maximise harbour views. The main road flowing through Point Piper is Wolseley Road where luxury meets Sydney Harbour.
With a median house price of $10 million, Wolseley Road features in the world’s top 10 most exclusive streets. It comes as no surprise that Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull opted to stay in his Mediterranean-style estate on Wolseley Road in Point Piper, rather than move across the harbour to the much humbler, formal Sydney home of the Prime Minister, Kirribilli House.
Aussie Home Loan founder and owner John Symonds reportedly paid $70 million to build his mansion on Wingadal Place. Altona on Wunulla Road was controversially bought for $52 million by a Chinese businessman, bringing Australian foreign investment laws into question.
