McMahons Point is a high density residential harbour side suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney. McMahons Point real estate and other neighbouring suburbs are all at a premium due to the area having a multitude of cafes, restaurants, pubs, parks, low crime rate and ease of public transport. Plus the expansive views of the harbour and Sydney City. You will most certainly get your money's worth.
The land in this area was originally settled by the same man who settled and farmed Milsons Point, James Milson. And much like Milsons Point, upon the completion of the Harbour Bridge, ease of access to the area drove its development. As it wasn't until the bridge's completion that this area was popularised.
For those looking for lower North Shore real estate, you will find McMahons Point to be a quiet neighbourhood with a wide range of housing. The development of this suburb was initially planned to be a "waterfront industrial area", but that changed in 1957, which saw the local residents and architects argue for a residential development, one which has now become one of Sydney's most exclusive localities.
McMahons Point is also home to one of the most panoramic, unobstructed views of Sydney Harbour, Blues Point reserve. Blues Point Reserve is a five minute walk from McMahons Point ferry wharf. Ferries run every 20 minutes from Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. North Sydney train station is a 15 minute walk away. Blues Point Reserve is an incredibly popular New Year's Eve spot, given the close, unhindered views, 1000s of people flock here every year.
