It is similar to both Heaton and Jesmond in terms of street layout and architecture. The housing stock is mostly of red brick Victorian terraced housing, and many of these are Tyneside flats. Towards the south of the area are some light industrial businesses, and towards the southeast, the residential streets run steeply down towards Jesmond Dene. Sandyford is located at the end of Jesmond's Osborne Road and is serviced by the Jesmond Metro station.
Sandyford is home to FPP Brand Communications, the European award-winning communications agency, and several local businesses, including a shop, an Italian bistro, an Italian restaurant, three sandwich shops, an award-winning fish'n'chip shop, a Chinese takeaway, a Post Office and a car garage. The area also hosts four hairdressers.
