Living among the trees in the hippest part of the city

There’s more to this suburb than brick pits and freeways

It’s a part of Sydney that is often overlooked but the unassuming suburb of St Peters in the inner west has a lot to offer the discerning buyer.

Once better known for its brick chimneys than its beautiful locale, it is now coming into its own as people looking for a little creative culture get priced out of nearby neighbourhoods such as Marrickville and Newtown.

So in an area where land and green space is scarce, it’s hard to pass up a property like 2 Crown Street. Offering four bedrooms and two bathrooms over two levels, the home backs onto the best park in the suburb, Sydney Park. 

Surrounded by tree canopies, there’s a sense of living in the treetops, which is further enhanced by the easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces.

While the integrated stone kitchen overlooks the open plan living area bathed in north easterly natural light, it’s the master bedroom on the upper floor that’s the showstopper, with bifold doors that retract entirely to lead onto an enclosed terrace amongst the trees.

Surrounded by primary and secondary schools, this is an ideal family home located within easy walking distance of St Peters Station and the burgeoning restaurant district of south King Street. A spacious double garage with ample storage is fittingly embellished with landscaping.

Address: 2 Crown Street, St Peters

Auction: 10.30am, March 25, 2023

Price Guide: $2.1 million

Agent: Brad Gillespie, Property Partner, The Agency, 0418 448 295

Australian auction sales warm up week on week as temperatures cool

Tue, Mar 28, 2023 < 1 min

In signs that confidence is returning to the Australian property market, the combined capitals recorded their highest preliminary clearance rates since April last year, CoreLogic reports.

More than 2,290 homes went to market across capital cities last weekend with early data revealing a 71 percent clearance rate. This compares with a revised clearance rate of 64.2 percent last week. It marks the second busiest auction week to date this year.

Melbourne led the way, with 1,122 homes taken to auction. Of the 916 results collected so far, 73.5 percent were successful. It was a similar story in Sydney, with 791 homes to go under the hammer. Preliminary results indicate a clearance rate of 71.5 percent.

The smaller capitals including Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra all experienced higher clearance rates week on week, with Adelaide out in front at 78.6 percent. It was a less spectacular result in Canberra, with a 59 percent clearance rate and in Brisbane at 56 percent.

In Perth, just three of the 13 auctions tallied so far were successful.
