Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I work internationally in film and theatre.

Why the Owner Chose Sydney South (Sydney NSW, Australia):
Surry Hills is the most vibrant and exciting place to live. It is the home of artists and creative people and is replete with restaurants, theatres and galleries. There are numerous original clothing shops and interesting gift shops. The house is within walking distance of the city and is an exceptional location for those interested in unique cuisine. This is my home and I rent it out while I am working overseas or interstate.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a beautiful house to stay in because of the unique light and the quality of peace created by the Chinese Tree of Heaven. A true oasis. Around the corner is the dynamic and hip Crown Street filled with life, people and great shopping. You are only five minutes from the city and fifteen minutes away from access to all the main holiday attractions and yet it feels as though you are in the country.
