Inner-West Conveyancing Guide

February 17, 2014


Three of our favourite suburbs

Looking for chic harbourside living in an unpretentious part of town? Want to experience a thriving, multicultural and unique side to our city?

Then look no further than inner western Sydney.

Originally an area brimming with warehouses, factories and rough pubs, this part of town has been transformed into a thriving hub for young families, businesses and creative firms.

With so many suburbs to name, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, so here are three of our favourite suburbs in this property-boom precinct:


Once the spiritual home of Australia’s shipbuilding trade union, newly gentrified and trendy Balmain is often referred to as “little Mosman”. Just a small distance from the city, this once working-class area now boasts beautiful homes, boutique shopping and fantastic food.

Famous for it’s quality (and quantity) of pubs, Balmain has a healthy nightlife easily accessible by public transport. Hip young families are snapping up new homes every day so if you’re interested in this fantastic suburb, we suggest you get in quick.

Median house price: $1,293,000



With such a close proximity to the University of Sydney and University of Technology, Glebe attracts an eclectic mix of both students and locals. Leafy Victorian homes and a village atmosphere characterise this suburb with a great weekend market selling an eclectic range of goods.

The main street of Glebe is packed with health food shops, bookstores and an enviable restaurant scene. But if you ask me, the newly renovated foreshore and close-by Glebe Park is the jewel in this suburbs crown. Unbeatable views of Anzac bridge and dog-friendly zones ensure this scenic walk remains one of the best experiences in Sydney.

Median house price: $1,293,000



Known for it’s live music, colourful characters and unique aesthetic, Newtown is a suburb like no other. Walking down the main street, you’ll come across vintage clothing stores, tattoo parlors and Marxist bookstores.

Diverse is the best word to describe this community with restaurants hailing cuisine from every corner of the globe. African, Thai, Turkish and Laotian restaurants will ensure your taste buds never get bored.

Also one of the first suburb shopping centres outside the City Centre, Newtown provides residents with art spaces, cafes, pubs and supermarkets. This is an area with plenty of history and the housing market reflects this. Grand old terraces and working cottages populate the real-estate market with bargains and bank-breakers at every corner.

Median house price: $887,000
