Rows upon row of beautiful terrace houses that symbolise the yesteryear of Sydney. Paddington is all things hip and romantic at the same time. Beautiful boutiques and restaurants dot the back streets, along with canopies of shady trees.

Very close to the CBD it offers spacious homes (parking almost never) that have been renovated with love over the years. Paddington’s and Woollahra’s streets merge happily with each other, hosting the artistic and elite of Sydney.

The main strip of Oxford Street is one of the busiest shopping strips in Sydney, home to furniture stores, high-end clothes boutiques and restaurants. Loads of pubs for a lazy weekend afternoon tipple.

Head to Centennial Park opposite for a picnic or walk to the Botanic Gardens or the Opera House.
