Described in 2009 as “the new Paddington”, Marrickville as a suburb has risen from strength to strength in so many ways and is now considered to be the jewel in Sydney’s Inner West. A diverse mix of housing includes large federation homes on 600sqm blocks, semi-detached bungalows, the traditional worker’s cottage and a smattering of 1960’s style unit blocks coupled with some more modern warehouse conversions and ultra-modern apartment developments. Bounded by the Cooks River to the South and the Enmore/Stanmore border to the North, Marrickville is one of Sydney’s largest local government areas and houses people from all walks of life.It is often described as the multicultural hub of Sydney and residents enjoy a vibrant lifestyle just 8.5 kilometres from the CBD. Marrickville is blessed with green space, including its very own 18 hole golf course, McNeilly Park and playground is perfect for the kids and Marrickville Oval hosts an array of sport on weekends, including local rugby, baseball and cricket matches. If you’re into tennis, there is a choice of hardcourt and grass, and two free Park Runs are held each Saturday not far away at St Peters and the Cooks River.
Good value restaurants and cafés are plentiful, and Marrickville has a growing nightlife scene with its very own jazz bar and theatre, both which host local and international talent for everyone to enjoy. Sundays can be spent leisurely strolling around the Organic Food Markets (sshhh… no one cooks on a Sunday in Marrickville), and Sydney’s best coffee can be found on Addison Road along with live music and great food at one of the area’s finest pubs. An excellent selection of schools and pre-schools, day care facilities and transport options make Marrickville the perfect place for young families seeking a lifetime home.
