1. North Ryde
James Sarazno a local agent in the area mentioned Northryde is:
"A supurb suburb"
It has great schools and a quiet yet high neighbourhood spirit eating out and local amenities are a stone throw away."
2. Surry Hills
"Good place to live and work... expensive but is worth every cent."
AdriankH said: Surry Hills is a nice tree leafed suburb located within walking distance of Sydney CDB. (a village in a city feel) This suburb is close to everything, parks, recreation, cinemas, pools, and a short journey to the beaches.. Crown street has a lot of restaurants, bars and cafes and good night life. The locals are friendly and this is a very social place.
House and units are expensive but you get what you pay for, there is a lot of refurbishment/development happening in the area... and one things for sure the house prices in this suburb are not going down. Get in while you can.! for investor this is an absolute winner and for buyers its a convenient lovely place to live.
"Great place to live if you are single, hip and think out of the box"
FlyingDutchman said: Newtown offers everything from cheap good quality food to fantastic nightlife. Newtown is in the heart of it all and you are 2 minutes from the University, RPA Hospital and Medical Centres. Public transport is at your door step as well as schools, child care and major shopping centres. Parking would be the only down point and traffic if you want to live on King Street. Newtown is more for single, hip, educated, professional people who love to have a good time and socialize. It is also good for upcoming families if you can afford it but not much room to grow. Newtown is diverse and one must have a broad outlook on life, I love the place.
