Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

My one bedroom flat is in McMahons Point, overlooking Lavender Bay, with views to the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and the city.

Introducing

I'm a woman in my 60s. I enjoy various cultural activities and like to walk and swim. I live in McMahons Point, overlooking Lavender Bay, with views to the Harbour Bridge and the Opera house, water craft during the day, city lights and fireworks by night. The bus and ferry are a few minutes away and the train station and shops a 10 minute walk (or catch the bus). The building was built in the 1920s, but the flat is modern. It has one bedroom and one bathroom, timber floors, summer breezes and winter sunshine.

About Our Home

My flat is modern but in a well maintained 1920s building. It has one bedroom and one bathroom. It's 50sqm and is ideal for one person but would also accommodate a couple. The kitchen is less than 3 years old and includes a dishwasher and washing machine. It has expansive views of the harbour. The bus and ferry are a few minutes away and the train station and shops a 10 minute walk (or catch the bus there).

Our Location

McMahons Point is two ferry stops from Circular Quay, the main ferry hub in the city. If you prefer, you can walk or bus to North Sydney and catch a train – three stops to Town Hall. The area has an interesting history, having been favoured in the past by writers and artists including Brett Whiteley, Margaret Olley, Lloyd Rees, Norman Lindsay and Henry Lawson. Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Garden is less than 10 minutes walk, halfway to Luna Park. There are a number of restaurants around the corner on the 10 minute walk to North Sydney which also has restaurants, 3 supermarkets, banks and a variety of shops plus buses and trains to various parts of Sydney. Walk a few minutes down to Blues Point for expansive views up the harbour, east and west, plus views over to the old wharves housing Sydney Theatre Company at Walsh Bay and to Barangaroo, the entrance to Darling Harbour. Or walk to Sawmillers Reserve on the western side of the point, only a few minutes away, for another harbour perspective.

Other Comments

Sydney’s great any time of the year but some special events include Sydney Festival in January and Vivid and the Sydney Writers Festival in May. There are the usual cultural activities expected of all major cities. Sydney's best market, Kirribilli, happens twice a month, and is only a 15 minute walk away. And it's only a bus to the northern beaches or Bondi or a train to the Blue Mountains.
