Vaucluse (Eastern Suburbs)


Vaucluse is located in the affluent eastern suburbs of Sydney, 8km to the north-east of the city and the Central Business District.

With a median house price north of $4 million and median unit price of $1.15 million, Vaucluse has long been recognised as one of the most prestigious suburbs in Australia.

The area comprises some of the finest houses to be found in Sydney, including the infamous Butterfly House in the neighbouring suburb of Dover Heights.

Located on the glorious South Head peninsula, the predominantly residential suburb boasts magnificent views across Sydney harbour to the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

The adjacent suburbs of Watsons Bay to the north and Rose Bay and Dover Heights to the south also continue to be very highly sought-after.

Vaucluse is located within a decent stroll of the ferry terminal at Watsons Bay, the cliff-top walks that pass the suburb comprising some of the most breath-taking scenery in urban Australia. The suburb is steeped in modern European history including the Macquarie Lighthouse which was built in 1816.

As implied by the median prices houses in the suburb of Vaucluse houses command premium values, yet the accessible entry price of quality established apartments has seen the suburb become a popular haven for investors in recent years.

For homebuyers, Vaucluse is home to some of the world’s most exclusive real estate, while investors are drawn to established, boutique apartment blocks with water views.

Other eastern beachside suburbs within which we actively buy 2-bedroom apartments include Coogee, Bondi Beach, Tamarama, Bronte, Maroubra, and Clovelly.

Ideal apartment purchases should be located on quiet streets, have some outdoor space such as a balcony or courtyard, include parking on title, and be within walking distance to suburb amenities.

We tend to avoid complexes with expensive strata levies, which normally means passing on those with heated pools, a gymnasium, or 24-hour concierge.
