Looking for a great apartment location in Auckland? Ellerslie offers it all

Ellerslie Village

In 2021, Safari Group will begin construction of The Residences – a boutique collection of residential apartments and visitor accommodation suites in the Auckland suburb of Ellerslie.

As a property investor you’ll want to know what makes Ellerslie a great place to live.  Have a read below to find out the suburb’s top attractions.

Ellerslie Racecourse

As Auckland’s premier horse racing venue, Ellerslie Racecourse plays host to many events throughout the year.

Boxing Day & New Year’s Day Races, Auckland Cup Week and Urban Polo – there are endless opportunities to get dressed up and socialise.

Local cafes, bars and restaurants

Another reason Ellerslie is a great place to live – the locals often say they’ve got the best dining options in the city. We wholeheartedly agree.

Mexico, Saneh’s Thai and Mr Tanaka’s have got you covered for a great atmosphere and delicious casual dining. For craft beers, gourmet pizza and places to watch the best sports games try Union Post, Charlie Baxters and Irish pub Doolan Brothers. 

If weekend brunch is on the menu try the french toast at cafe Little Luscious, coffee and smashed avocado at Melba or pick up a sandwich from the New York deli-style Pastrami & Rye.

Village High Street

Ellerslie is one of Auckland’s oldest suburbs, with a friendly community that’s been more than 150 years in the making.

The village features a vibrant high street that is dotted with a variety of speciality stores and boutiques, along with a butcher, convenience store and fuel station.

Transport options to Auckland City

And finally what makes Ellerslie a great place to live is its easy access to the city centre.

Trains run regularly from a station located in the heart of the village, and there are bus stops located on both the main and surrounding streets. All connect to the city or close suburbs. 

For those needing to travel by car, Auckland’s main motorway is easily accessed from one of two nearby on ramps.
