Stylish Flat Amazing Location - Balmain/Birchgrove

Balmain, New South Wales
The Space

Why stay at a place devoid of character and history? Or be insulated in a tower with no sense of place, far removed from the essence of Sydney and its legendary harbor?

A place to call home.

The apartment is located in a quintessential Sydney peninsula, right on the harbor and next to the City. Significant majority of the houses in the neighborhood are heritage protected, retaining the original structure and history of the area and that of Sydney. The streets ooze distinctive character of yesterday, today and tomorrow, while the café and restaurant scene pulses vibrant energy that is distinctively Sydney.

The apartment is brilliantly located with one block to the famed Darling St. (where all the cafés, restaurants, and shops are located) and one block down to the waterfront Sydney Harbor. There are frequent buses and ferrie...

About the neighbourhood
Balmain was one of the earliest Sydney suburbs to be settled by Europeans, becoming an industrial hub and a major Sydney port, with shipbuilding, engineering, and coal mining taking off in the late 1800s. A combination of its working class roots, an influx of immigrants in the 1950s and gentrification of the 1960s -- “Once a tough, working-class neighborhood, Balmain now rivals Paddington [and Surrey Hill] in Victorian-era desirability – with the added advantage of being surrounded by water and city-bound ferries.” (Lonely Plant 2018). Some of Australia's best-known writers, actors, film directors, musicians, and artists call Balmain home.
Getting around
During your stay, you will have easy access to the City and Sydney harbor. They are right on your doorstep! Frequent city-bound buses are one block up the road and 10 minutes ride to the city center (QVB). The ferry wharf is at the park down the road from the apartment, and it provides an easy ferry ride into the City, Darling Harbor, Milsons Point/Luna Park, Circular Quay/the Rocks, Pyrmont, and Cockatoo Island.

I can also provide parking permits for street parking if you have a car.
