Paddington & Roseville Property Reports

In this issue, we focus on the suburbs of Roseville on Sydney’s North Shore and Paddington in the Eastern Suburbs. Specifically, how property performed in these two suburbs over the last 12 months and the top house and unit sales.

Roseville and Paddington are both popular suburbs in Sydney with distinct characteristics that contribute to their individual appeal. Roseville is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, large land sizes and proximity to the train line. Whereas Paddington has a vibrant and cosmopolitan charm with great cafes and restaurants and less than 3 kms from the Sydney CBD.


Paddington is a lovely suburb close to the CBD. It is home to a number of good public schools – both primary and selective high schools, making it very popular with families. Beyond the main arterial roads, you will find tree-lined streets and Paddington terraces ranging from small first-family homes to large, spacious terraces. A lot of the larger terraces are located on the south side of Oxford St along Moore Park Rd. In fact, terraces or semi-detached homes make up 52.7 per cent of residences in the suburb with fewer than 7.5% of free-standing homes.

Paddington is experiencing a rejuvenation with the opening of a number of new eateries and revamped pubs. Real estate is also sought after with The Cambrian, a new off-the-plan block of 15 units on Oxford St recently selling out in one day. In addition, there are four new low-rise apartment developments pending in Paddington, which once completed will further reinvigorate the suburb.

Paddington is popular for its boutique, independent stores and art galleries. Every Saturday they hold markets where you can sample the products of local artisans and designers, which always draws a huge crowd.
