I have lived in the Inner West of Sydney for the past 10 years and in Birchgrove for the past 3 years, I love coming home everyday to this part of the world. Spending a weekend at home is not a wasted weekend, there is so many lovely walks, places to eat and easy walk up to Darling Street. I am a Design teacher majoring in Textiles and Design. So I love all things creative especial art & design. I love my day job of teaching, talking to a room room full of young students.
Katie Waud purchased this house in 2010
My house is part of 8 Terrace houses joined together, they were built in 1896 of beautiful sandstone. The house is lovely and open, most days I love just being at home with the door open cool breeze following through. The courtyard is lovely and private, I often have BBQ and dinner outside, is especially nice on a hot summers day.
Both bedrooms up stairs are light and airy. The main room had french doors that open to look over the park, it nice to sit up on the chairs and drink morning coffee listening to the birds.
I love Birchgrove, the location is amazing. It doesn't have the small streets of balmain. It is a part of the peninsula that not everyone knows about. which is nice, we keep it to ourselves. The ferry and bus into the city are fast either way you are in the city within 10mins. If you are looking for a great place to see the fireworks on New Years eve, Birchgrove oval is great. People from far away start to arrive early in the morning, every New Years I have been around we wonder down at 11:40pm get a great spot and walk home with the rest of the street and file into out house. 'Perfect location'. Birchgrove is also great geographic location to rest of Sydney very easy to jump onto M7, M4 and M2 disappear to Blue Mountains, South Coast or North Coast for the day.
Birchgrove is located 5kms from centre of Sydney city. It is on the northwest slope of the Balmain peninsula overlooking Sydney Harbour. Balmain is the only adjacent suburb. The long waterfront provides views of Parramatta River and Cockatoo Island and amazing views of Sydney Harbour bridge (a prime location for New Years eve). Birchgrove ferry wharf provides access to the Inner Harbour Ferry service, which runs to Circular Quay taking roughly 15mins. Sydney Buses (441) runs on from Bircghrove oval to Art Gallery of NSW via Queen Victoria Building (QVB) taking 10mins in non-peak time.
House is located on Grove Street opposite park and a short walk to Snail Bay, everyone that lives in Birchgrove never wants to leave. It is quiet, one of the best places to go for an evening walking along Luisa Street, Snail Bay and to Birchgrove point. Tennis courts are walking distance and avaible to have a hit on. Local coffee shops are very welcoming and Charlottes has a great lamp wrap and breakfast meals. Tim and Sashiko coffees and treats are perfect in the afternoon. (My dad loves the homemade pies). Birchgrove is a lovely piece of inner Sydney that you never want to leave.
Birchgrove is walking distance to Balmain shops, markets and fantastic restaurant. Rozelle is 10 min walk also has fantastic markets, shops and restaurants. Perfect location to zip into the city of just stay around.
