Bellevue Hill is 4km east of the CBD and set on a hill with commanding views of Sydney Harbour. It’s an opulent suburb with a village-like atmosphere and a charming, and convenient, shopping precinct lining Bellevue Road. Home to some of Sydney’s most prominent families, you’ll find historic estates and large gracious homes with beautiful gardens and some luxurious apartments. A leafy ‘old-money’ haven. It’s also home to some of Australia’s most exclusive schools, including Cranbrook and The Scots College, adding to its popularity with families. Recreational parkland is also a major draw card for Bellevue Hill. The heritage-listed Cooper Park is 38 lush hectares and lays claim to being Sydney’s largest area of urban bush land with excellent recreational facilities including sporting fields, cricket nets, playgrounds, outdoor ‘gyms’, bushwalks and a recently upgraded tennis centre. Everything is easily accessible from Bellevue Hill – it’s flanked on one side by Double Bay’s shopping village and harbour, and on the other side Bondi Junction and the flagship Westfield shopping centre. Its close proximity to the sand and surf of Bondi Beach is within a short walking distance or a five-minute drive. Its superb position, breathtaking views, beautiful parks, grand homes and access to first-rate schools are huge attractions when buying into this prestigious suburb.
