About this listing
Stunning large 2 bedroom penthouse, great city views, large rooms, artistically decorated. Huge roof terrace entertaining area
The Terrace; is a charming two-level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the border of East Sydney, Darlinghurst and Kings Cross with everything that Sydney has to offer within easy walking distance (Sydney CBD 10mins, Hyde Park 5 mins, Oxford St 10 mins, Kings Cross 5mins.)
The apartment is very spacious, elegantly decorated in a modern contemporary style and very well equipped with all mod cons.
The main attraction of course the actual sun-drenched roof terrace that I have developed into a superb entertainment area with all-weather couches, lighting, heating, cocktail cabinet, fridge, sound system, sun umbrella and even a garden growing organic fruit, veggies and herbs.
Looking onto the terrace is the master bedroom which is quiet decedent in style, with large leather bed and quality linen. It is a large space with lots of storage and can accommodate an additional mattress or cot if required. Adjoining is an ensuite bathroom which is design for indulgence featuring a recliner bath opening out onto to the terrace and a view of the city. This floor also houses a small desk/office area and internal laundry with washer and dryer.
On the lower floor is a second double size bedroom with large built in robes, a comfortable double bed with again quality linen and its own cute balcony with lounger. Next to the bedroom is the second bathroom with large walk in shower.
The main living/dining area is also on this floor; it is a bright warm space, stylishly furnished with an eclectic fusion of art work and mementos from my travels plus large screen TV surround sound and cable. It also has a six person glass dining table and I have an abundance of fine china/dishes and glass wear for the most discerning dinner party. Off the main living space is another balcony that I often sit and have breakfast at, it is a charming view and surrounded in trees with birds in the morning.
A foodie and self-confessed coffee addict, my kitchen is well set up with a Nepresso coffee machine and other appliances; bread maker, juicer, soda stream, electric wok etc plus all utensils that a good cook would need.

The location is also really central and there is number of things to do and see all within a few kilometres; Stanley St (Sydney’s little Italy) is just around the corner which has some great restaurants and a real European feel, Darlinghurst is wall to wall of cafes, bars and restaurants to suite all tastes and budgets, Woolloomooloo marina is at the bottom of the hill with its ritzy restaurants and famous residents (Russell Crow has the penthouse at end of wharf) it is beautiful to hang out on a nice evening, The Australian Museum and The Art Gallery of NSW have both interesting exhibitions and evening events, The Bridge can be seen from my corner and the Opera House is a pleasant stroll through the Botanical Gardens and Domain, Chinatown and Darling Harbour are just at the back of the CBD and Sydney colourful nightlife of both Kings Cross & Oxford St are on your doorstep.
If walking is not your thing are really well serviced for public transport with a bus stop almost outside of door that takes you into the CBD and beyond and Bondi Beach in the other direction. The Town Hall train station is a comfortable walk and this station is one of the main connector stations for all lines, plus the airport is a quick 20mins away by cab or the Airport Shuttle bus which picks up outside my door.
Lots of public transport options on your doorstep.
But most things you may wish to see are accessible by foot from my location.
