about Point Piper
Often named the most exclusive residential suburb in Australia, Point Piper is famous for both the location and view of its properties and their price tags. Named among the 10 most expensive streets in the world per square metre in 2011 by Business Insider, it has become an exclusive, affluent suburb with a small population of only 1,404.
The suburb is named after Captain John Piper who built a mansion on the point in 1816. This house, known as Point Piper House was destroyed in 1850 to redevelop the land, but other famous structures still stand including Fairwater on New South Head Road, and more modern structures like John Symond’s mansion.
Amenities of the Point Piper Neighbourhood
Located along Sydney Harbour and adjacent to Double Bay, Bellevue Hill, and Rose Bay, Point Piper’s streets are home to several breathtaking views and properties. There are only eleven streets in the suburb, with property prices generally among the highest in the world along stretches of Wolseley Road. John Symond’s Wingadal Place mansion in particular is rumored to have sold for more than $50 million in 2013.
With no commercial area of its own and few amenities, residents of Point Piper must travel to Rose Bay or Double Bay for their nearby shopping, restaurants, cafes, and other amenities. Where it is lacking in these types of luxuries, it makes up for it in land and the view. The Duff Reserve, Layd Martin’s Beach, Redleaf Pool, and Seven Shillings Beach are all beautiful, with Duff Reserve in particular famous for use in photography and weddings.
