Spectacular Sydney Residence

Considered a 'Maritime Villa', the 12 metre wide home on 686 sqm of land was purpose-built in 1883 to face the water rather than the street to monitor the tides of the Harbour. The second-oldest home on Simmons Street, the property was thought of with such importance that it is listed as a heritage-conserved home.

The significant residence on the Northern cusp of the Balmain peninsula was architecturally-reinvented in 2008 offering a truly unrivalled waterfront-oasis. A meticulous marriage of the original construction to the brand-new wing was achieved through inspired design and pays sympathetic homage to its original era. With a focus on space and light, the indoor/outdoor areas take full advantage of the Northern-light and Harbour-side setting.

Boasting absolute water-frontage, the home gazes across the Harbour to a full-frontal view of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Goat Island, part of Sydney Harbour National Park. Hear and smell the water lapping at the home's boundary.

Offering glass-embraced interiors spilling onto the manicured gardens, the home with a double lock-up garage provides generous sleeping accommodation and impressive living quarters. Offering four spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom showcases a Harbour-view balcony, walk-in robe and ensuite with 'his and hers' basins. The sunken pavilion-style living features a stunning open fireplace and an inviting ambience. A home that emphasises entertaining, the Gaggenau-appointed kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and finishes brings the living area and lawn together.

Fixtures and finishes:-
Beautiful materials including Himalayan stone, Red Iron Bark timber and concrete have been used to create a contemporary setting. The home showcases 4.5 deluxe bathrooms with limestone and mosaic-tiled finishes and bi-fold glass doors to blur the lines of inside and out. Wired for smart-technology, the home features C-Bus, a CCTV and AV system, media room, zoned air-conditioning, smart storage solutions.

The property features a Red Iron Bark finished boatshed, mechanical slipway for a 30 foot boat, tiered gardens and a mosaic-tiled pool and spa. Offering a Harbour-side and park-side setting with Simmons Point Reserve adjacent, become immersed in the Balmain lifestyle with bistros, wine bars, boutique shopping and schools surrounding.
