Description

The Space

The sandstone apartment is located approximately 300 metres to Tamarama Beach & 450 metres to Bondi Beach.
The "M Cafe" is across the road which has delicious coffee, juices, breakfasts and lunches along with the local bus stop.

Apartment Description
The apartment was cut and built into the Bondi sandstone with the generous help of my 3 children and friends over 2 years. It has exposed sandstone walls with polished concrete floors & plywood timber ceilings.

The apartment has an ocean and boat theme with a 40 year old timber kayak hanging on the main feature sandstone wall.A large wood carved sperm whale is on the window sill with a couple of old boat propellers, rudders and a ships steering wheel.
The apartment is located below our home.

Internet

Apartment Climate
Because the apartment is cut into the natural sandstone rock - there is generally a different climate - cooler than outside in summer & warmer than outside in winter. It can be a humid in the apartment after rain however we have two dehumidifiers if the humidity becomes uncomfortable.
The natural sandstone is designed to allow the ground water that naturally comes out of the rock run down over the face of the sandstone and drains to a catchment drain where it is pumped away to the outside. A pump system is also used to remove the shower, toilet, kitchen & washing machine waste water to the outside drainage and system.

In times of heavy rain the apartment can be humid and may not be the best choice for those who suffer from Asthma.
