THE PROPERTY: An art deco shelving unit with a few choice pieces greets you as you enter into this elegant and cosy two-bedroom apartment in a small block, opposite Rushcutters Bay which gives you the benefits of both waterfront living and being on the city’s doorstep. Ahead of you is the living and dining area which has a comfy low back sofa, perfect for chilling in front of a movie in the evening, or dine on your Eero Saarinen style marble table. To the left of the entry you’ll find the kitchen complete with Smeg appliances, where marble accents and crisp white storage gives the space a light and airy feel. With it's cleverly designed space keeping both function and form in mind, so you can enjoy a leisurely morning preparing breakfast, wash up last night’s dishes while admiring the view from the window, or lean against the counters with a cup of coffee to plan your day. Head back into the living area, past the interesting artwork on the walls and the full-length mirror that sits next to the dining table, and you’ll see the expansive doors that take you out to your very own cosy balcony. Spend a moment taking in the Harbour Bridge view, then start thinking about everything you’ll be able to do on this balcony. Whether it’s curling your feet up under you on the comfortable double chair to read a good book, or leaning on the balcony rail with a chilled glass of wine to watch the sunlight dancing on the water, you’ll love spending time out here. Back inside follow the parquetry floor through the archway that takes you to the two bedrooms, both the height of comfort, with the gorgeous bathroom set in between them.
