Looking for your next home? We’ve got you covered with six of the best properties for sale across Sydney right now.

20A Shaw Street, Petersham

Sometimes a renovation is so comprehensive you could be forgiven for thinking you’re looking at a brand-new build. So, it is at 20a Shaw Street, Petersham. OK, so the giveaway is the obvious Victorian facade, but even that beauty has had a polish to recapture its pomp.

Inside, though, the contemporary transformation is immediately, impressively apparent. “It’s a fully architecturally designed renovation,” says Harris Tripp’s Michael Poynting. “Really well-thought-out and very high-end while being very low maintenance.”

The material and tonal choices here are excellent. The main bedroom’s watery blue en suite tiling is divine, and if you want a pretty period window to have a bit of modern punch, give it a thin black trim. Sophisticated and effortlessly stylish.

At the rear step down into a kitchen that’s the handsome goods too – stormy stone splashback and bench against deep sage and grey cabinetry a flawless combo. The living area with its two sets of black-banded doors on crisp white walls and attractive timber floors is breezily modern and leads out to a terrace and grassy rear.

Upstairs two lovely bedrooms, another bathroom and retreat complete a package Poynting describes as “easy living. Light, bright with great proportions”.

9 Forth Street, Woollahra

Hidden by a discreet exterior on a coveted street, this architectural gem radiates elegance and warmth across two opulent levels. “This property has been tightly held since 1988, renewed over time to offer the utmost in modern living,” says the agent. “Its design reveals luxuries one by one – from the striking ceiling heights and expansive glass windows to the serene Japanese gardens gracing both terraces.”

28A Dophin Street, Randwick

After a swim on Coogee beach, imagine walking home to this newly crafted designer duplex, rinsing sandy feet under the outdoor shower before relaxing in its stunning interiors. “The home’s bifold doors blur the lines between inside and out, while the expansive glass walls frame lush gardens, creating a tropical holiday vibe,” the agent says. “The deck and plunge pool are destined to be favourite summer spots.”

4 Foley Street, Darlinghurst

The captivating facade of this distinct, double-fronted 1860s home invites curiosity, revealing interiors that echo tales of old Sydney. “Its generous spaces and historical elements combine to create a residence of unmatched distinction,” the agent says. “The ‘great room’ features stained-glass and cast-iron roof supports salvaged from Central station, while the enormous folding glass doors and elevator facade are remnants from the Grace Brothers building.”

17 Collingridge Point, Berowra Waters

Home to TV personality Larry Emdur, this Berowra beauty reveals unbroken and stunning river views from each room. “The previous owner, a famous documentary maker, would globe-trot often and return here to disconnect – we’ve felt that same magic,” Emdur says. “Sylvie and I are especially fond of the over-water deck – our go-to spot for brekky, fishing, swimming, kayaking, or Sylvie’s morning yoga.”

9 Broughton Street, Ashfield 

Although wonderfully renewed, this 1920s freestanding bungalow still proudly showcases its art deco hallmarks, from its high ceilings to its original fireplace. “The quaint facade, coupled with its cul-de-sac setting, makes this home both charming and family-friendly,” the agent says. “To the rear, a sun-kissed garden leads to a self-contained studio, ideal for accommodating extended family or providing a retreat for teens.”
