North Shore Real Estate
The upper North Shore starts north of Chatswood and stretches to the Hawkesbury River and is home to some of the oldest residential areas of Sydney. Consisting of mainly residential and bushland suburbs, the area is widely known for its extensive gardens, mature European trees and family-friendly neighbourhoods.
In 2021, the North Shore had a population of over 78,893, and with its easy access to public transport and a range of excellent public and private schools, it is no wonder families like to call the upper North Shore home. The region has a median house price of between $1.5 million and $3.5 million (2021).
