House: Weatherboard Tree House, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1 car
Land Size: 1024 sqm
Agent: Steven Crooks, Pacific First National
Area description: There is not much known of the early history of Clareville. Local speculation has it the suburb was named after one of its early houses. The significant development of Clareville happened after World War II, but even today the area is one of tall trees, sublime views and peace. Clareville as an area in which a few of the old weatherboard house have been enlarged into large comfortable homes. There are substantial waterfront houses, and sleek contemporary properties designed to blend with the environment, which straddle the rough hillsides to get the best views.

Property 3

House: 5 bedroom mansion, 4 bathroom, 3 car
Land Size: 689 sqm
Agent: Nikki York, McGrath Collaroy
Area description: Bilgola lies between Newport to the south and Avalon and Clareville to the north. Bilgola Plateau crowns the peninsula rising from the ocean beach to 169 metres. The suburb is located in one of the prettiest areas of Sydney, in the heart of the Northern Beaches Peninsula bordered by surfing beaches on the eastern coastline and Pittwater on the western foreshores. The pace of life is different here. It’s slower and almost tenuously connected with the bustle of the CBD. Residents choose this area for its natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere of the community. It’s a haven for artists, actors and writers. Houses are built to take advantage of the views and leafy outlook, with large expanses of glass and decks for outdoor living.

Property 4

Address: Cremorne, NSW
Sale Price: $625,000
House: circa 1870 Converted Mansion, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 car
Land Size: 84 sqm
Agent: Nigel Mukhi, Mcgrath Lower North Shore
Area description: Cremorne can promise you the best of both worlds: the quiet parks and water views of an outer suburb, together with the convenience and energy of the inner city. With North Sydney and Neutral Bay close by, Cremorne residents can enjoy many of the cultural activities of a large city without even having to cross the harbour.

Property 5

Sale Price: $590,000
House: 60’s / 70’s Brick Apartment Block, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 car

Area description: Balmain is located 4km west of the CBD. The Ferry departs every 30 minutes from Darling Street wharf to Circular Quay Wharf 5. With our cities desire for stylish housing close to both the city and harbour, the un-renovated cottages of local sandstone or aged timber of Balmain suddenly became highly sought after. These days its magnificent Victorian public buildings, great local pubs, run down houses and derelict industrial sites have been brilliantly refocused as elegant inner city essentials.
