The suburb today sports a median house price $745,000 and a median unit price of $533,000, which represents a more affordable entry price than some of the more expensive eastern suburbs or those located on the lower north shore.
Neighbouring suburbs include the bohemian restaurant and shopping hub of Newtown to the west and Alexandria to the east. Erskineville is spoilt for choice with regards to transport links, being surrounded by no fewer than three train stations with fast link to the city.
One of the great advantages of Erskineville is that it offers a range of quality residential choices from magnificent terraced houses to modern apartment developments, all of which have easy access to the village-style centre of the suburb and to the city.
Erskineville’s village-type atmosphere is supported by a small shopping strip around the railway station and several popular bars and hotels including the Rose of Australia, the Imperial Hotel and the Erskineville Hotel, as well as coffee shops and breakfast bars.
