Bellevue Hill (a prime area) is Sydney’s wealthiest residential suburb and a highly desired address. Its sweeping views of Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach have attracted many investors and buyers.
It was originally named Vinegar Hill, after the Battle of Vinegar Hill which took place in Southeast Ireland in 1798. It was settled by Irish-Australian immigrants in the early 1800s. In 1820, Governor Lachlan Macquarie changed its name to Bellevue Hill.
Opulent Edwardian and Art Deco period estates, elegant contemporary apartments and chic boutiques characterize the district.
