UPPER NORTH SHORE

The Upper North Shore encompasses suburbs on the North Shore rail line between Chatswood and Hornsby (or less strictly, Berowra). Real estate in these areas is preferred by well-heeled families due to the availability of quality schools, good transport and larger houses on large blocks of land in quiet, leafy streets. Property in the region is surrounded by reserves and National Parks, which provide a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city.

One of the most attractive features about owning a house or apartment on the Upper North Shore is the ease of commuting to the CBD and North Sydney via the North Shore rail line. It also benefits from easy access to the M1 freeway up to the Central Coast and beyond, and the M2 if you’re heading to the South Coast.

Westfield Shopping Centre at Hornsby is a major drawcard which features a wide range of amenities including a cinema and gym, as well as hundreds of stores for those that love to shop. Each suburb also has its own village or strip shopping centre with local bakeries, specialty shops as well as numerous small cafés and restaurants plus supermarket’s to make shopping locally easy and convenient.

SUBURBS AND AREAS WITHIN UPPER NORTH SHORE

If you’re looking for real estate in the Upper North Shore region it’s worth taking the time to familiarise yourself with the various suburbs, as they each have different personalities.

While areas like Waitara, Killara and Lindfield are always popular, in recent months we’ve seen quite a lot of movement in areas such as Pymble, Castle hill, Eastwood, Brooklyn, Epping, Berowra, Carlingford, Cherrybook, Beercroft and Glenhaven.

 

Livability:

Suburbs in the Upper North Shore generally score well for ‘liveability’ (determined by factors such as transport, education, traffic, views and proximity to employment hubs). A recent livability study performed by Tract Consultants and Deloitte Access Economics ranked the North Shore Suburbs as follows:

1st: Waitara (located close to Hornsby, Normanhurst and Wahroonga) wins the prize for most liveable suburb on the upper north shore, thanks primarily to it’s proximity to train links, shops, business hubs, cafes and restaurants and schools.

2nd: Second place goes to Killara, which is a beautiful and conveniently located suburb between, Gordon, Lindfield and Macquarie Park.

3rd: Leafy Lindfield scores third place, located just 10 kilometres north-west of the Sydney CBD.

4th: The beautiful asquith – close to North Wahroonga, Mount Colah and Hornsby – comes in fourth place.

5th: Fifth place goes to Roseville, which scores brilliantly for mobile and internet coverage, proximity to employment hubs, tree cover, low crime rate and education.
