Freshwater, formerly known as Harbord, is a suburb of the Northern Beaches which is located 17 kilometres north-east of Sydney central business district. Northern Beaches Council is Freshwater’s local council.
Freshwater strikes the balance between being affordable yet still close enough to Manly and the city to be accessible. The suburb features one of Sydney’s most popular beaches, and a wide range of amenities. Saying that, its not a secret these days and property prices are constantly on the move.
Our Freshwater buyers agent will provide sharp insight and comprehensive knowledge of this vibrant Northern Beaches market.
While visiting Freshwater you will witness the private village-style feel for which the area is popular. The village feel is due to the beach and shopping strip being nestled between two headlands with the ocean on the eastern side.
As with any beach suburb, views of the ocean and easy access to the beach are always popular – but will command a high price premium. Streets to the south of the suburb, like Undercliff Road, Hill Street and Crown Road provide good access to the beach and Pittwater Road, not to mention walking distance to Manly – without being too busy.
The local primary school is excellent and Freshwater Village has a range of cosmopolitan restaurants, cafes and shops. Freshwater offers a laid back and relaxed lifestyle, enjoying swimming, surfing, sprawling parks and walking trails, cafes and bars which makes it attractive to retirees, young couples and families alike.
The size of Freshwater is approximately 2 km². It has 5 parks covering nearly 9% of the total area – including Freshwater Reserve, McKillop Park, Harbord Park and Jacka Park.
There are three schools located in Freshwater – Harbord Public School, St John the Baptist and Freshwater Senior Campus.
Sitting on the headland is the rebuilt and refurbished Mounties, still known as Harbord Diggers to locals. It is something of an institution in the district where you can enjoy the club’s gym and sporting facilities, not to mention an assortment of eateries ranging from reasonably priced to high end restaurants, bars and function rooms.
