Bellevue Hill meaning beautiful view is an affluent suburb 5km east of the CBD.
Known to be one of Australia’s wealthiest suburbs, its winding, tree lined streets have housed many notable Australians including the Packers, stock broker Rene Rivkin, Prime Minister Sir William McMahon, business man Lachlan Murdoch and actress Toni Collette – here is where you rub shoulders with the truly rich.
With a demographic mainly of maturing and established families and a median house price of $4,300,000 demand for this area is high.
All about living life on a grand scale, Bellevue Hill is mainly residential houses with their rolling manicured lawns and period style mansions set back from the street it is serviced by two small shopping villages with gourmet cafes, fruit shops and beauticians which ensures the hustle and bustle of urban living is well and truly forgotten in this tranquil suburb.
Boasting historic homes and award winning modern architecture, Bellevue Hill is worth a wander. Bellevue Road starts at the bottom of the hill in Double Bay and winds its way past the salubrious streets such as Fairfax Road, Bulkara Road, Kambla Road and Cooper Park Road.
At the top of the hill is the beautiful Cooper Park with its many bush paths leading to cut throughs to different areas of the suburb.Train on the steep stairs or take your dog for a run around the beautiful flat green. Going further into Bellevue Hills’ maze of streets you will find the hidden Thornton Park tucked in between Beresford and Boronia Roads. Here there is a slippery slide designed to delight young and old.
Bellevue Hill consists of two sides – the Rose Bay or the Woollahra side with accessibility to the CBD by car or bus and as its closer to the city than the likes of Vaucluse and Rose Bay, you beat a lot of the traffic. Recommended for the cashed up professional city worker with families and kids who want to be central to Double Bay, Bondi Beach and Westfield, Bellevue Hill also offers large parcels of land and panoramic city views.
Home to two very prestigious private boys’ schools that being The Scots College established in 1893 and Cranbrook School founded in 1918 the area also offers the local Bellevue Hill Public school which is getting a multi-million dollar upgrade and has access to the beautiful Bellevue Park for outdoor play.
Bellevue Hill will certainly offer a dress circle home, quiet streets and leafy outlook but you will need to step outside to the retail mecca of Bondi Junction and the exclusivity of Double Bay for your retail fix.
