Potts Point & McMahons Point Property

In this issue, we focus on the suburbs of McMahons Point on Sydney’s North Shore and Potts Point in the Eastern Suburbs. Specifically, how property performed in these two suburbs over the last 12 months. These suburbs are popular due to the great lifestyle and amenity they offer and their close proximity to the city. They are particularly popular with downsizers who are looking for low maintenance living and a close knit community. See the suburb report cards below.

Potts Point

Potts Point is art deco central and has the highest concentration of art-deco architecture in Australia. Macleay St is home to numerous beautiful art deco apartment buildings from the 1920’s and 1930’s. Across the suburb you’ll find mostly medium and high density housing such as units rather than freestanding homes. The houses tend to be attached terraced housing. But Potts Point is not just for architecture lovers, it is also a foodie favourite and is home to fantastic eateries such as Apollo, Ms G’s, Fratelli Paradiso and Cho Cho San. With the CBD walking distance away and the bus and train on your doorstep, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most sought-after downsizer suburbs in the Eastern Suburbs.
