Perched high above Kings Cross, Potts Point and the Sydney CBD, this two-storey penthouse apartment in the exclusive Omnia Building is the ultimate in high-rise luxury. Located in the sought-after north east corner of the block, it features panoramic views of the harbour and city skyline.
With sumptuous interiors designed by the high-end firm of Studioaria, the property offers the best of everything, from the expansive black marble kitchen with European appliances to the spectacular spiral staircases that connect the two levels. Stone finishes are a theme throughout, from the living room fireplace upstairs to the geometric patterns of Carrara marble tiles in the downstairs bathrooms.
But the penthouse’s most impressive attribute is, unquestionably, the vast outdoor living area on the upper level. You’ve never seen anything like it: with sweeping views of the city, the terrace includes an alfresco dining area big enough for all, an automatic retractable awning, an outdoor cooking space, timber decking, a jacuzzi and even an outdoor shower.
What the Owners Love
This apartment’s functional layout makes so much sense for families and groups. Three bedrooms are downstairs, two with en-suite bathrooms and one with a guest bathroom across the hall. The first floor also includes a separate living room and wine cellar. The Master bedroom with en-suite and main open-plan living and dining area is upstairs, along with the spectacular deck, so there’s enough room for everyone to find their space.
What We Love
The view. The view. The view. There aren’t many properties that allow you to see Sydney as a whole, but this is one of them. Whether you’re looking east towards the Heads or west towards the city, from here you can drink in the entirety of the Emerald City. And damn, she looks good. This is a whole different way to witness the sun rise over the Harbour, the towers glitter at midnight or the fireworks explode over the water on New Year’s Eve.
What the Traveller Loves
For travellers who appreciate the finer things in life, it’s hard to think of a better neighbourhood to be in than Kings Cross/Potts Point. Once the centre of Sydney’s rowdy party scene, in recent years it has welcomed a more well-heeled demographic. Now the area is home to many of Sydney’s best fine-dining restaurants, from the legendary Lotus bistro to refined Japanese fusion at Cho Cho San. A stroll will yield Victorian architecture, boutique shopping and sophisticated bars. What’s more, the hip neighbourhoods of Darlinghurst and Surry Hills are just around the corner.
