Erskineville is known for its vibrancy in terms of an alternative lifestyle among Sydney’s hip and Bohemian. This suburb is a mere 4.5km from Sydney CBD and 2km from the University of Sydney.
Location wise, this apartment is ultra convenient whereby it is within 300 metres to the St Peters train station, a 3-stop train ride to Central station. It is also within walking distance to the cafes and restaurants along King street in Newtown and Erskineville village shops and cafes.
This building was previously a light industrial premise but is now known as Star Printery Apartments. It has since been fully refurbished with modern conveniences and the professional team involved in this project include Turner & Associates architects and builder DeiCorp.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms both with built-in wardrobes opening out to an east-facing enclosed courtyard. The main bedroom has an ensuite.
Erskineville has been identified by Peter Koulizos, author of Top Australian Suburbs as one of the best areas to invest in 2010 along with other inner west suburbs such as Alexandria, Enmore and Darlington.
The downside to this property is that it may experience train noise due to its close proximity to the tracks.
