The peaceful suburb in one of Sydney’s most liveable regions

Mon Sep 26

Eighteen kilometres from the CBD, South Hurstville hits the right notes as a connected but tranquil suburb in St George, one of Sydney’s most liveable areas.

The suburb offers a laid-back lifestyle with easy access to Carss Bush Park, Brighton-Le-Sands and Ramsgate beaches, golf courses, Georges River National Park and river waterways. It’s also situated to take advantage of local shopping, Sydney Airport, commercial centres in Hurstville and Sydney City, and the South Coast.

Cure Cafe owner Christian Passas loves the mix of people in the area and the convenience of its location.

“It’s close to the city and it’s easy to go down south – it’s a great midway point,” he says. “Some of the homes here are over 100 years old and still owned by the same families. Carss Park is a beautiful place to go and the markets there are great.”

Highly regarded public and private schools are a boon for families, with Hurstville South, St Raphael’s Primary, Blakehurst High and Marist College all an easy walk. Plus, St George Hospital is 10 minutes away by car in the neighbouring suburb of Kogarah.

Amenities are abundant next door in Hurstville; express trains from Hurstville station reach Central in 18 minutes. Westfield Hurstville has 250 outlets including dining and a multi-screen cinema.

It’s not hard to see why people choose to settle in the suburb or why it attracts visitors from across Sydney on the weekends. Early risers can work out, bushwalk at Carss Bush Park, or jog along a nearby beach.

There are also many Sydney foodie institutions including Oregano Bakery, where you can pick up fig and almond scrolls to enjoy in the sun. After breakfast, you can walk the Poulton Park trail, play golf at the Beverley Park, Bexley or Hurstville courses, have a family picnic in the Georges River National Park or paddle along the Georges River.

You can meet a friend for lunch at one of the many culinary options in Hurstville and then take the train to the CBD to shop or see an exhibition. There’s also the Hurstville Foodies and Farmers Market that you can visit each Thursday night.

As one of St George’s quiet achievers, South Hurstville is attracting families and professionals. Its latest residential development, Allen & George, makes it even more desirable, designed to foster a life of well-being and convenience, complemented by the South Hurstville lifestyle. Affordable pricing starts from $580,000 for a one-bedroom, $695,000 for a two-bedroom and $1.45 million for a three-bedroom penthouse.

“Our buyers are a great mix of young couples, young families, and right-sizers,” says Laver Residential Projects director James Lampropoulos. “They appreciate the quality and larger floor plans on offer at Allen & George and want the convenience and amenity of living centrally while still feeling they’re part of the neighbourhood.”

South Hurstville is known for its village-type atmosphere, and everything you need is right on your doorstep. It’s a short walk to the fruit market, supermarket, cafes, RSL, shops and services, and counts the local library as a next-door neighbour. It’s 1.5 kilometres from Westfield Hurstville and Hurstville Station, with direct connections to the airport, Sydney CBD, Sutherland Shire and the South Coast, as well as being close to the M5.

Located on Allen St, the development features two buildings consisting of 57 apartments, with many of the apartments having panoramic views. An expansive, landscaped, residents-only garden and barbecue area with an attached community room separates the buildings.

“Another big selling point has been that most of the apartments come with two car spaces which is a rarity in Sydney … with most households now owning more than one car it is becoming an invaluable asset,” Lampropoulos says.

Regardless of where you currently live, if you’re looking to make a change or simply get away for the weekend, South Hurstville is worth exploring.
