High Yield in the Heart of the City with a Fascinating History


Make an astute investment and own a little piece of Newcastle history at the Star Apartments. This high yield rental property – with a lease in place until February 2025 – is a wise investment with its modern vibe and uber-central location. It also boasts the honour of being part of boutique Star Apartments complex with its history weaved amongst the arrival of the railway to Newcastle and goldfield fortunes, to the start of Newy's LGBTQI culture and the infamous Star Hotel riot of 1979. Originally built in 1855 by Scottish settlers, The Star Hotel had a long history before becoming one of Newcastle's most infamous pubs! The best Aussie bands played here in its heyday and there is even a Cold Chisel song named after this iconic location.

Things are a little more chill here now. In the last decade, several of the buildings here were reinvented as boutique apartments, complete with a chic common area and tree-lined courtyard. Unit Number 109 has a modern kitchen, a sleek bathroom, chic black framed windows, its own separate air conditioning system and bike parking for those keen to live the inner urban life to the fullest. The pub has new owners who now offer a Bottomless Brunch – all the mimosa and tapas you can consume – alongside fabulous pub grub.

This one bedroom apartment, currently garnering $450 a week rent, is within walking distance of everything the eclectic Newcastle CBD has to offer. Head out for brunch at the Papa's Bagel Bar next door, catch the light rail to the beach for a surf or a swim and order delicious bruschetta and pasta at Bella Italia. It is all within an easy stroll of this fantastic apartment! Access is via the now quiet and pretty Devonshire St – a private, festoon-lit alley – or off King Street. You will be surprised at how quiet this location is, given its proximity to all that our fabulous coastal city has to offer.
