"Gorgeous location, gorgeous properties...."

Billyard Ave is a beautiful cul-de-sac offering prime Sydney Harbour living. It is a very leafy, green narrow one-way street, starting from Ithaca Rd. There are quite a few tall deco red brick apartment buildings here. Despite the (sad) lack of balconies on these old blocks – many of them would have superb views. There are some large Victorian apartment buildings (that may have been single homes originally) – beautifully renovated. And amongst this lot – seeming a monstrosity – some very modern apartments. They are an eye sore here, in this pretty street.

Most of the houses are on the waterside of the street (and apartments on higher western side). They are large, and very private, and very nondescript from the street. There is at least one or two massive blocks here – one of which looks like a hacienda. Obviously all of these would have spectacular views.

Weirdly a local bus goes down this narrow street – and there are stops – but I’m afraid I can’t expand on that.

Very nearby is the terrific waterfront park –Beare Park. There is some waterfront parkland and a decent children’s playground. I know there was some contention between locals and the council a year or so back regarding upgrades the council did and child safety (to do with the waterfront) – and I don’t know if that’s been addressed.

This is a magical place – good for everyone. J
