Darling Point is a chic harbourside suburb, conveniently located only 3km to the CBD. It is a prized peninsula address made up of a handful of streets, with its neighbouring suburbs being Double Bay, Edgecliff and Rushcutters Bay. Dating to the 1830s, it’s one of Sydney's oldest and most exclusive suburbs. The first buildings were grand homes on enormous blocks of land, unlike many other inner city suburbs that were filled with small terraces and cottages.
Today these gracious mansions share the leafy streets with apartment buildings and contemporary penthouses. Most waterfront apartments feature breathtaking harbour views stretching across Double Bay to the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, making them a coveted address, popular with the moneyed and nautical set. Some well-known landmark properties can also be found here – Swifts, one of Australia’s oldest estates and other mansions including Craigend and Carthona. It also boasts the Edmund Blacket designed St Marks Anglican Church (1852) which was the venue to Elton John’s first marriage. Today a large number of retirees live here against a backdrop of stunning harbour views.
Darling Point is an exceptionally convenient suburb as it has the luxury of having all the necessary conveniences right at your door. It’s just footsteps the local village store or a short walk to Edgecliff station and shopping centre and the more exclusive Double Bay shopping village. Closer to the harbourfront is the picturesque McKell Park and its public ferry wharf. The park is popular as the venue for picnics and a favourite setting for wedding as it provides the perfect backdrop with superb harbour views and beautiful manicured gardens.
