Paddington, New South Wales, Australia
This residence is in Sydney's picturesque and historic Paddington. It's close to universities, the city, beaches and parks, and is surrounded by galleries, restaurants, cafes and other lively venues. Paddington is a vibrant and sought-after area and the apartment is a super-quiet haven at its centre. You can start the day with breakfast in the courtyard, a jog in nearby Centennial Park, or head out to one of the many cafes nearby. The apartment comprises the ground floor of a Victorian house with its own private entrance, leafy garden and garage. It's completely self contained and stylish, with even a touch of luxury. The living-dining-kitchen opens to the garden and the other section of this L-shape living area is the bedroom with a queen bed, and generous cupboard and storage space. It's spacious and light, also completely quiet and secluded. Sandstone walls inside and out add to the atmosphere and privacy. The apartment has wifi and Sony TV + DVD. The kitchen features a brand new induction cook top plus a convection+microwave oven, electric grill and Nespresso machine. There's a large bathroom with clothes washer and dryer. New arrivals will find the fridge stocked with basics so there's no need to rush to the shops after a long journey. Historic Paddington is centrally situated near to the city, universities, harbour and beaches. It is Sydney's centre for galleries, cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. It also borders on Centennial Park which offers walking, jogging, cycling and picnic facilities. On Saturdays there's a busy market. Public transport, including to universities, is excellent. You can also walk to the CBD in half an hour and be at Bondi beach in 20 minutes. Sydney University, UTS, University of NSW, COFA and Notre Dame are all located within easy travelling distance and there are good transport connections to other universities. I bought this house almost 40 years ago and I've loved living here. It was a great area to bring up kids and the longer I live here the more I appreciate the neighbourhood attractions.
