St Ives is a place where picture-book homes and manicured gardens meet the Australian bush. This affluent North Shore suburb is all about families – elegant streets and rural undertones. 

At times, St Ives may seem like it’s off the beaten track, but with easy access to the Northern Beaches and major business hubs, locals can choose to be in the action on a whim. With a shopping precinct, golf facilities and prestigious schools on hand, locals have everything they need right on their doorstep.

On weekends, families are out in full force, ferrying their children to and from sports at the multi-use green spaces throughout the area. Locals never tire of the network of walking, cycling and horse-riding trails in Garigal National Park and Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park.

But where St Ives lacks in urban vibrancy and nightlife, it more than makes up for in the large, stately homes with backyard pools and the odd tennis court.
