"A busy, but beautiful, location..."

Ocean Street is a busy, though leafy, through-route, beginning at Oxford Street, passing through Edgecliff and ending near the harbour in Double Bay.

It’s a wide boulevard with trees arching over it, and gracious old houses and mini-mansions in particular, occupy the Woollahra end.
The housing at the northern end closer to William Street consists more predominantly of apartment buildings, both big and small.

There’s a mixture of building styles here with Victorian and Georgian homes, and rustic workers cottages. Many buildings are listed on the National Estate – including the quaint sandstone corner store on Ocean Street.

Public transport is good, with buses on the street itself, and Edgecliff train station nearby – walking distance from the lower (north) half of the street. Edgecliff also provides good grocery shopping facilities, and Ocean Street has several specialty shops including liquor store, drycleaner’s, a drapery, cafe and some furniture shops.

On the corner of Forth Street is Woollahra Public Primary, which has a good program for gifted and talented kids. The area is fairly lacking in good outdoor spaces and playgrounds for small kids, but there is Trumper Park not too far away, which has a large sports oval, a playground and walking trails.

Ocean Street is a busy, but beautiful road.
