"Very nice - if you have a spare few million tucked away"

This is a gorgeous street with some beautiful buildings. Unfortunately, this fact is not exactly a well-kept secret and so to live in Macleay Street you will pay a huge premium for the address alone. Do it, of course, if it makes you feel good to say you live there, but if you're even slightly imaginative and money-smart you can do a whole lot better by looking a few streets away for similarly Art Deco places that are bigger, sunnier, nicer ... And not price inflated. Why be a mug?

"Looking for the special studio apartment?"

Located under 3 kilometres to Sydney CBD makes this street highly sought after especially when you consider you can buy a trendy studio in the 300's!

"Living on Macleay....You've really made it!"

Macleay's myriad of cosmopolitan cafes, uber-chic boutiques and galleries give it an ambience and desirability which has elevated it to one of Sydney's most fashionable streets and is often described as "Parisian".
Macleay Street is the heart of Potts Point, where diverse architecture from the Art Deco "Gowrie Gate" to iconic "Ikon" embellish the street with character and design. From compact studios to sprawling penthouses with exquisite views capturing Sydney's famous landmarks, there is a property for everyone who is charmed by Macleay Street.
"You're a yuppie if you live in Victoria Street but you know you've really made it if you're in Macleay Street." Trish Muljono, SydneyLinks Real Estate, Potts Point.
