Manly Real Estate

The history of Manly real estate originates from Captain Arthur Phillip who described the Aboriginal people that were habitating the area as having “confidence and manly behaviour”. Today the culture in Manly is still vibrant, confident and active. The Australian beach culture of the past is alive and well today. Many young couples prefer living in Manly as it’s a destination that is not only close to the beach but has a relaxed vibe to it. While the older generation love Manly because it’s peaceful and surrounding by nature.

Manly is ideally situated between Sydney Harbour, the Pacific Ocean and North Head. The Manly to Sydney CBD ferry ride (which dates back to 1855) takes approximately half an hour and enjoys outstanding views which never fail to impress.

Real Estate & Design
Manly homes offers a mix of various architectural styles that showcase both period and purpose. There are many modern homes built to feature exceptional ocean views, plus there are grand Federation homes and beautifully restored semis. From the early 1920’s, apartment blocks first began to make an appearance. By the mid 60’s and 70’s, apartment blocks had spread, with the majority of Manly beachfront consisting of luxury apartments. Today Manly is considered to be one of Australia’s most sought after suburbs. Many people flock to the area for its relaxed beachside lifestyle, world class beaches, eclectic cafes, close proximity to the CBD and vibrant nightlife. Property prices continue to be strong as a result and are most likely to continue to have good growth in the future.

The Corso of Manly and its surrounding streets offer an array of mainstream and boutique retail outlets plus two Coles supermarkets for every day needs. For more comprehensive shopping, Warringah Mall is close by and the CBD is a short ferry ride away. Manly also caters perfectly for tourists, with many shops offering an array of Australian souvenirs to choose from.

Manly is the perfect location for an active lifestyle, offering a huge amount of options including surfing, kayaking, beach volleyball, running along Manly beach, bike riding, coastal walks, surf lifesaving activities, waterslides, Ocean world, parasailing, jet boating, fishing, golf, cricket, tennis or football just to name a few.
Manly is home to one of Australia’s best football teams, the Manly Sea Eagles. Supporting the Manly Sea Eagles is embedded into the local culture and is enjoyed by most of the locals.
