Looking for your next home in Sydney? We’ve got you covered.
On first glance inside 17 Stanley Street, Redfern, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re on the coast or maybe in some sharp Balinese villa: windows full of greenery, a handsome peaked-roofed, timber-panelled fit-out and a luxe outdoor bathroom with a brilliant steampunk aesthetic – light, lofty, lovely.
The fact that you’re in downtown Redfern just makes this place all the more appealing.
“It’s a really amazing property,” says Ray White’s James Natoli. “The light, the fantastic staircase and the openable skylight that lets you look out at the trees – unique.”
The original old cottage has been transformed to maximise the available space. That cool, black spiral stair is the centrepiece around which flows attractive, airy living and dining spaces. The kitchen is a cracker, with its stainless steel benchtops, timber cabinetry and opaque louvre windows – fabulous.

Wind up that stair and you’ll find two bedrooms, both with Juliet balconies that hang over the greenery below. A powder room sits handily in the middle here.
Out in that courtyard and beyond that beautiful bathroom, there’s direct access to Chelsea Street Playground. “It’s like a treasure,” says Natoli of this Redfern revelation.
Basking in the glitter of Sydney Harbour, this iconic apartment in Greencliffe promises exclusivity and awe-inspiring views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
“It’s the first time in 15 years a property in this building is up for grabs,” the agent says.
“Being on the edge grants it a unique, sunlit aspect for this street. With windows on three sides, the apartment boasts unparalleled front-row views of the world’s best harbour.”
Sitting on a sunny and sprawling block with al fresco allure, this family home promises memories of sunlit gatherings and tranquil afternoons.
“Every corner, from its various living spaces to poolside terraces, whispers of a life lived in harmony,” the agent says.
“The family often congregates in the rear living-dining area, drawn by its luminous atmosphere and seamless transition to the garden.”
Crafted with the expert touch of its architect-owner, this tri-level terrace radiates simplicity and style, set serenely in a cul-de-sac on the edge of Trumper Park.
“The kitchen is accentuated with a double-height void, offering a peek-through down to the living room,” says the seller, Llewela Griffiths.
“Its interplay of space and light is very special, with visual ties to all levels allowing it to operate as the heart of the home.”
Embracing the charm of its 1920s Californian bungalow facade, this home gracefully weaves its historic structure with a new extension.
“During renovations, the vendors prioritised capturing light in the old house and featuring the gorgeous Sydney red gum tree in the backyard,” the agent says.
“Indeed, the heart lies in the kitchen, where sunlight dances through the skylight, illuminating the Italian marble and shimmering brass fixtures.”
Sun-kissed summers beckon from this beachside retreat, positioned front and centre on Bondi’s legendary shore.
“This art deco jewel within the iconic Shangri-la block sits amid all the action,” the agent says.
“Inside, the panoramic views steal the show, spanning from Ben Buckler to Malabar Headland – and the shared roof terrace offers even more captivating vistas.”
Standing proudly among the buzz of a transforming neighbourhood, this Victorian terrace celebrates history and urban revival.
“The home’s ambience is warm and welcoming, with a sizable layout, well-presented interiors, and a gorgeous flow between the living, dining and kitchen space,” the agent says.
“Its central location is a key factor in attracting couples and young families looking to break into the Marrickville market.”
Bathed in sunlight from large windows above the kitchen, summer breezes carry the scent of jasmine throughout this beautifully updated terrace.
“The owners relish their morning coffee in the private back courtyard, with their two dogs sunbaking on the pavers and delighting in the birdlife,” the agent says.
“Their little bubbling fountain cuts out the noises of the city and really makes you feel like you’re out in nature.”
