Sydney’s Upper North Shore is known for its parklands, waterways, leafy neighbourhoods and expansive family homes. Many locals choose the area for the serene lifestyle it offers away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city.
The Upper North Shore lies to the northwest of the CBD and stretches along the North Shore train line from Roseville, Killara, Gordon, Pymble, Turramurra, Warrawee, St Ives and Wahroonga to Hornsby.
Premium (public and private) schools, proximity to major shopping centres and a top-notch dining and cafe scene are also big bonuses of living and renting here.
The majority of properties on the Upper North Shore are family homes set on leafy streets with expansive blocks and manicured lawns.
Although the average demographic tends to be older (over 40), the area also appeals to a wide spectrum of other would-be renters. Depending on which suburb you’re searching in, townhouses and apartments can also be found in the mix.
The Upper North Shore is known for its safety and security, and this is another big drawcard for locals.
Ku-ring-gai Chase and Lane Cove National Parks offer a huge variety of sporting and recreational activities and keen golfers flock to the area for its outstanding range of courses at Pymble, Killara, Roseville, Terrey Hills and Gordon.
Major shopping centres at Westfield Chatswood, Chatswood Chase and the Macquarie Centre are easily accessible, and many of the suburbs that make up the area have their own cluster of village-style shops, cafes and restaurants.
Commuters to the CBD and other business centres at Hornsby, Macquarie Park, Chatswood, Crows Nest and North Sydney have an excellent train, bus and road network available to them. Whatever your mode of transportation, you have access to direct and convenient links to most of Sydney’s key locations.
The area is also a convenient base (via the M1 Pacific Motorway link) for weekend breaks and holidays to popular getaway spots like the Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter Region.
