It’s just like living in a postcard
ONCE you pick your jaw up off the floor you’ll know why the owners of this luxury Kirribilli apartment liken their home to “living in a postcard”.
And it is so true as their home sits right on the majestic Sydney Harbour to showcase some of the most iconic landmarks in Australia, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
12A/29 Waruda Street, Kirribilli is also the immediate neighbour with Admiralty House which ensures for a safe and secure neighbourhood.
Selling agent Ray White Lower North Shore director Bernard Ryan said it was a true “privilege to manage the sale”.
“The property was a genuine one off. There is no other apartment on Sydney Harbour with this combination of views, privacy, floorplan and structural integrity,” Mr Ryan said.
“It’s the first time ever offered to market and extraordinary in every sense, a magnificent absolute waterfront home sitting majestically on Sydney Harbour.
“At that time the owners bought it, it was a literal void on the water and from there they went on to create this incredible waterfront apartment.”
Mr Ryan said this one of the most remarkable properties that he’d have ever had the privilege of selling in his 20 years in the real estate industry.
Owners Mike and Cathy Collins say they fell in love with the building at first sight while visiting their daughter in Sydney.
The Collins from the United Kingdom noticed the apartment block was selling the entire front section of the block.
“Mike and I visualised what a lovely home it would make for us. We pinch ourselves daily, it’s such a fabulous place to live,” Ms Collins said.
“We’ve got the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the yachts and the sunsets and we are only a very short distance from the CBD. so that makes life even easier.”
Mr Collins said that when they bought the space, one of the difficulties was there was tonnes and tonnes of rock and rubble to dispose of and it was difficult to do from the street level.
“So we got a barge with a crane on and so we used the harbour to help dispose of the rock and rubble and debris. And we also used the same principle to bring in all the new building materials.
“It’s like living in a postcard.”
Created by Suters Architects within a tightly held Art Deco building, the neoclassic interiors exude opulence and proportion enhanced by contemporary elements of luxury within its impressive 170sqm + footprint and lofted 3m ceilings.
