"Great views, mixed properties, need to drive to most things..."

New South Head Road Vaucluse is a busy road and through-route but it is not without its charm. Many of the houses here offer fantastic Sydney Harbour views and are a great place to watch the fireworks – this goes for east or west side of the street.

Many of the houses are sumptuous and extravagant - this goes moreso for the lower western side properties, some of which are on large blocks. There are still some older style hones – that have not been overly upgraded – but on the eastern, higher, side, they are not as private and receive more traffic noise.

Bus transport is good – but one needs to go further afield for decent grocery shopping.

Not far away is the private school Kincoppal-Rose Bay – which offers co-ed up until high school when it becomes girls only. It’s an extremely gracious, historic building worth a look. There is also historic Vaucluse House close by, and the wonderful facilities of Neilson Park on the harbour foreshore, a minute’s drive or so. There is a tree filled park – wonderful child friendly beach with shark net, kiosk and restaurant, amenities and children’s playground.

New South Head Road in Vaucluse offers a lot for the families – though – unless situated especially close to facilities – regular car trips will be necessary.
