Located in Sydney's Lower North Shore region, Kirribilli has a million dollar view in a city full of great views. It's perched just across Sydney Harbour from the iconic Opera House and with views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Unfortunately, million dollar views cost, well…a million dollars. Yes, you can find smaller homes for less, but they're still pricey.
This is a relatively dense area of lowrise and midrise apartment and condo buildings. You'll have a couple senior government officials as neighbors (the jury is out on whether that's a good thing). The Governor-General of the country resides at Admiralty House, and it's also home to Kirribilli House, a secondary residence/beach pad for Australia's sitting Prime Minister. The positive is that police are always nearby since they sit outside these properties — not that you'll need the police here.
There are some restaurants – and the requisite coffee shops to get you jumpstarted in the mornings – on the edge of the neighborhood, near the Sydney Harbour Bridge. And if you're into sailing, Australia'a oldest yacht is down the street.
Ferry service makes for a quick and scenic commute to the Sydney CBD.
CBD: 5 km / 10-20 minutes by car / 10 minutes by transit / 15 minutes by bike
Chatswood: 8.8 km / 15-30 minutes by car / 20 minutes by transit
