"Interesting street - mix of architecture and residents"

A street with an eclectic mix of gorgeous huge terraces at one end, 70s style apartment blocks (including Harry Seidler's Aquarius), mixed through with a few art deco buildings. Residents are also mixed from professional singles/couples, older residents who have lived there a long time and younger shorter term tenants. Not to be confused with Roslyn Street!

"Lovely street, some views, some amenities..."

Rosyln Gardens is a street that dips and rises again. It stretches from Rosyln Street to Elizabeth Bay Road. The housing here is a mish-mash of styles – large old apartment blocks, typical deco and large modern apartments. There are also the old terrace houses of the area – with lovely iron lace-work.

I don’t know if this is still the case – but many of the apartments here used to be owned through ‘company title’ rather than torrens, freehold or strata. They are mostly beautifull maintained and some have nice water views.

Rushcutters Bay Park isn’t far away and aside from being a beautiful waterfront park – there is a good pre-school here, and tennis courts, also toilets, a children’s playground and a kiosk and café. It’s a lovely place to spend an afternoon.

There are a few shops at the Elizabeth Bay Road end of Rosyln Gardens and there is a wonderful casual eatery here called Lizzie Bay Gourmet – which offers both eat in, and take home meals. The Darlinghurst Theatre Company is also not far away.

Walking around here can be pretty steep, and public transport – unless you can walk to the buses – is not so great. So I would suggest this wouldn’t be such a great spot for the infirm – or those who have to manoeuvre newborn triplets. J
