From the funhouse to the ferry, check out one of the most active suburbs in Sydney.
Access to both relaxation and fun is something any on-the-go house hunter will be interested in, and this is where the glorious Double Bay excels. In addition to playing host to a huge range of prestige property to suit all lifestyles, it is nestled in between a number of efficient and beautiful public transport links, from the road to the ocean. It is unprecedented access and a lifestyle you deserve when you’re looking to rent property in the eastern suburbs.
The vibrant lifestyle
Census data from 2011 indicates that Double Bay has a higher-than-average proportion of people in their twenties, with slightly less young children than the rest of the state. This suggests a shift that has been noted in Lonely Planet: More and more young people setting up shop in this upper class haven. It’s a way of escaping the chaos of the central city and finding a new type of luxury in the eastern suburbs.
The nightlife is a big attraction for younger people, with clubs like Casablanca a sought-after destination for anyone seeking a good time. It’s not all fun and games though – nearly two thirds of the population also is employed for at least 40 hours per week, suggesting a real work hard, play hard attitude. After all, you deserve to have a fantastic place to relax.
Access all areas
As well as being only a stone’s throw from the CBD, Double Bay offers fantastic transport options to get around the city. Ferries regularly arrive at the local Double Bay Wharf, ready to take you anywhere between Watsons Bay and the Circular Quay Wharf right in the middle of the city.
Census data notes that 17.2 per cent of Double Bay residents don’t own a car either. For those that need further transport options, the T4 train line passes nearby at Edgecliff, meaning the decadence of Double Bay is your gateway to almost anywhere you need to go.
With 73.9 per cent of dwellings in the suburb being units, the opportunities to rent property in Double Bay are plentiful. Nearly half of the buildings in the area have two bedrooms, suggesting that people here favour a sophisticated and calm living arrangement.
It’s an exciting and exotic lifestyle that shouldn’t be passed on if you get the opportunity. To find your dream apartment or the loft that you truly deserve, contact the property management team at Ray White Double Bay.
