Perched high atop Ben Buckler Head at the North End of Bondi, this gorgeous apartment must be seen to be believed. Occupying the top floors of a beautiful Art Deco block, it has incredible views of Bondi, the Pacific Ocean and the entire Eastern Suburbs sweeping away to the south.
But we’re really burying the lead, because the top floor terrace is the main attraction here. An entire Bondi rooftop with panoramic views, all to yourself. This isn’t bare concrete in the sun. We’re talking about an outdoor space designed to be enjoyed, with a full outdoor kitchen, barbecue, a pizza oven, a sauna, remotely controlled sunshades and an enormous deck area with outdoor living and dining settings. If you can’t have fun here, you can’t have fun anywhere.
The indoor living area below – access is via a light filled staircase – isn’t too shabby either. The sun pours in the through the windows, illuminating a beautifully designed space that pays tribute to classic seaside styling, accented by contemporary pieces. Wainscotting, timber floors and plantation shutters complement the rustic dining table and Danish style chairs.
The three bedrooms mean that families and friends can be accommodated without a problem: each features built-in wardrobes, and the spacious master bedroom gives onto a large marble-floored en-suite.
To make it even more convenient, there are two private lock-up car spaces, so you’ll never have to deal with the usual Bondi parking struggle.
What the owner loves:
One does not simply live in Bondi. One lives the Bondi lifestyle. With the sand and surf (not to mention the cocktails and coffee) a short walk away, you’ll start to feel like a local in no time. Whether your idea of fun runs to the active – surfing or heading to the iconic Icebergs for a swim – or something more passive – soaking up rays or enjoying a drink at trendy Bondi Social – you’ll never be short of something to do.
What we love:
We love the way this property’s heritage features – the beautiful façade and high ceilings – have been married with contemporary flourishes. This isn’t a poky little Art Deco apartment. The open plan living area is filled with light and will surely be filled with laughs as you gather at the breakfast bar, cook meals in the designer kitchen and relax on the timeless white lounge setting.
What the foodie traveller loves:
“Entertainer’s Delight” is a cliché, but maybe for a good reason. Bondi View is the perfect place to host a dinner or drinks – guests will surely be wowed by the incredible vista, not to mention whatever you whip up in the outdoor kitchen. Whether it’s homemade pizza, steak on the barbecue or something more elaborate, every meal feels special here.
