Everything about Woollahra exudes elegance. From the heritage-listed homes with manicured gardens that sit within the shade of overarching trees, to the alluring high-end boutique shopping along Queen Street. Once in, locals tend to stay, and who can blame them when they have incredible dining, old fashioned English-style pubs, Oxford Street and Centennial Park all on their doorstep.
A quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of its neighbours, Woollahra exudes beauty, both on and off the streets. With mature trees that merge into welcoming archways along the streets, Woollahra boasts heritage-listed homes with manicured gardens, Victorian cottages, ornate Art Deco apartment conversions and several international consulates that are housed in beautifully-converted homes.
With all its style and elegance, Queen Street is home to Sydney’s best high-end boutique shopping, drawing well-heeled shoppers into the fold. Armani Junior, Herringbone and MJ Bale sit amongst gourmet delicatessens, and Victor Churchill – butchery taken to a whole new level.
Amongst all this, there is still space to step away from it all and stretch out. The hidden bushland sanctuary of Harbourview Park and the expansive parklands of neighbouring Cooper Park and Centennial Park are places where you can unwind and relax or choose to get the heart rate pumping.
If all this wasn’t enough, depending on their mood, locals can indulge in incredible dining at places such as the greenhouse-style restaurant, Chiswick or relax in old fashioned English-style pubs such as the beloved Lord Dudley Hotel.
Woollahra is one of Sydney’s neighbourhood gems that is refined yet laid-back and welcoming.
Woollahra boasts a juxtaposition of architectural styles that speaks to the neighbourhood’s evolving history. With the mature trees that form lush archways along Wellington, Fullerton and Queen Streets, Woollahra is an area to soak up the ambiance and beauty of the heritage-listed homes and Victorian cottages.
Westbourne House and Selby House along Jersey Street are beautiful examples of sandstone homes, whilst Queen Street, Ocean and Edgecliff Roads have it all, from Art Deco conversions, terrace houses, luxurious gated residences to colonial homes. Stroll along Moncur Street for restored double storey Victorian terrace houses.
East of Edgecliff Road, multi-storey homes cling to the hillside, many with harbour glimpses. Small cottages and contemporary homes line the meandering streets, whilst tall blond-brick and contemporary apartment complexes sprout up along the northern end of Edgecliff Road.
