Dulwich Hill is a suburb in Sydney’s inner west, within 7.5 kilometres of Sydney’s central business district. Originally established in the late 1700s as an orchard and garden, Dulwich Hill was transformed into a bustling vicinity when it was added as a new route for the Sydney tramway.
Evolution as a suburb
Gentrification of nearby suburbs became a catalyst for Dulwich Hill’s real estate growth, bringing in droves of residents to occupy new developments. The installation of a light rail line also bolstered demand for housing and apartment units, including rental properties, propelling Dulwich Hill’s median home prices to new heights.
A great deal of people relocating to Dulwich Hill are retirees and families who want to raise their kids in a tranquil neighbourhood surrounded by nature, but with ease of access to the CBD. Those who are leaving the suburb, on the other hand, are most likely reselling their homes and cashing in on skyrocketing Dulwich Hill property prices. Many of them have netted more than $1 million per property, on average.
Dulwich Hill has a number of retail and commercial areas centred around its railway station, as well as along Marrickville Road. It has three primary schools and one secondary school, the renowned Dulwich High School of Visual Arts & Design.
