A Walking Tour Through Double Bay
The recent rebirth of Double Bay has led to its resurgence as one of the east’s most desirable lifestyle addresses. Massive infrastructure improvements and a swathe of new high-end retailers and a rejuvenated dining scene have boosted the suburb’s appeal. New life and vitality serve as a magnet for a huge range of buyers from young professionals and families wanting proximity to the city to downsizers and investors seeking the perks of a harbour lifestyle.
We have a choice of five Double Bay homes stretching across the suburb so if you fancy a Saturday spent checking out the options while soaking up the harbour vibes, here they are in order of open times. The first port of call, open tomorrow from 9.00am to 9.30am, is 12/19 Cooper Street, Double Bay. With a buyer’s guide of $1m, the two-bedroom Art Deco apartment is set on the top floor of a boutique block just off Ocean Avenue.
Follow on to 3/5 Ocean Avenue, Double Bay, open for the first time tomorrow from 9.30am to 10.00am. The original 108sqm three-bedroom apartment is one of only four in a block just behind Ascham School and comes with a lock-up garage on title and a guide of $1.3m.
From there head to 9/534 New South Head Road, Double Bay, open from 10.00am to 10.30am. Panoramic views over Double Bay to the city and secure parking on title make this a superb lifestyle purchase just a few steps to Redleaf Pool (buyer’s guide $1.2m). Across the road is 6/539 New South Head Road, Double Bay, open from 10.00 am to 10.30. The house-like three-bedroom apartment also enjoys views over the boat-filled bay and comes with a $1.7m guide.
Listing agent Sean Poche says, “The renaissance of Double Bay’s cosmopolitan scene has brought an influx of buyers who are attracted to the bayside lifestyle. Double Bay has now evolved into a desired destination across the full spectrum of buyers.”
