Sydney CBD house description

If you are looking for a very spacious, tastefully decorated home away from home, full of sunlight, with a large kingsized bedroom, two living areas, and your own private courtyard and garden area, this 1895 single-story cottage is for you. All on one level, it is ideal for young couples, and mature couples. You will experience modern comfort with the added twist of some Retro design furniture in the livingroom. You don't need a car - everything you need for self catering is a short walk away on the vibrant King Street - supermarkets, fabulous cafes and restaurants, a Post Office, Banks, unique bookshops and eclectic boutiques. Buses on King Street will take you directly to all the sites Sydney has to offer. Free WIFI is available at the nearby public library, or in many of the coffee shops and restaurants lining King Street.

              BONDI -

              Car: Not Necessary

              From this cosmopolitan innercity village the CBD is a short bus ride to all the tourist sites of Sydney - the ferries at Circular Quay, the Opera House, Chinatown, Harbour Bridge, and international fashion boutiques in Sydney's Shopping Centres. The beaches at Bondi, Bronte and Clovelly are a short drive away or use the Victoria Park Olympic heated swimmingpool near Sydney University.

              The heart of the village is the vibrant King Street - blessed with 70 restaurants, 42 cafes, more than 600 stores, as well as theatres and pubs. It's still an Old Town for lovers of everything Old, from antique furniture to rustic and industrial pieces, from rampant Art Deco kitchenware to vintage clothing. The southern stretch of King Street has so many eras and items to choose from it's almost become Sydney's Portobello Road. It's the place where shops indulge in specialties no-one is else is game to try - All Buttons Great and Small sells nothing but buttons; the Bead Company sells nothing but beads. It's a place for those with more style than money - a parade where Yves Saint Laurent meets Saint Vincent de Paul (charity shop), where Max Mara meets Doc Martin. There are more than 30 new and recycled clothing stores. But come for the food - Thai, Vietnamese, Nepalese, Indian, Mexican, Chinese, etc.etc.!


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We are a mature professional couple with an adult son (trained as a property manager). We travel extensively (staying in VRBO apartments and homes in Europe) and have decided to rent out the cottage (which was our first home in Sydney) to other VRBO fans. We now live in the adjacent suburb where we run a design business. One of us will be available at all times to meet you and give any help you need during your stay.

              Why the Owner Chose Sydney CBD:
              We bought the cottage for its proximity to the Sydney CBD and the excitement of the nearby King Street - the best of both worlds as the house is very quiet with plenty of room and we have great neighbours - mostly professionals or academics. Newtown is a classic example of an inner Sydney suburb transformed from working class to a trendy cosmopolitan one. It provides a fascinating haven for the great diversity of its inhabitants, from young families to academics, professionals, students and retailers to restauranters, digital media supremos, artists and actors.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The cottage feels spacious with its original high ceilings and polished wooden floors leading from the entry room through to the large rear living area. Down the polished floor passage is a large bedroom, and a small office with desk - both with windows onto private areas, then the kitchen and a large north-facing livingroom with sliding glass doors onto a paved outdoor courtyard one side, and a garden at the rear. Apart from the front room the house is very quiet, but we are only 100 metres to bustling King Street where you will find everything you need to have a comfortable holiday. You will have plenty of room to wander around and make yourself at home.
