Calling this property a “beachside apartment” would be like referring to the Sydney Opera House as a typical music venue. Located at one of Australia’s most sought after addresses – the Pacific Building at Bondi Beach – it’s a stunning split-level penthouse filled with natural light and designer flourishes.
With an enormous King bedroom on both levels, each with a spectacular en-suite bathroom and the Master with private balcony, the home offers ample room to stretch out and relax. Multiple living areas only add to the sensation of space, with indoor areas flowing outdoors while skylights and full-length windows invite the outdoors in. The entire property is filled with contemporary designer furniture and original artworks, and sunshine is ever present.
With its gracefully curving walls and ceiling, the top level living and dining area embodies effortless beachside chic, with pale furniture, an entertainer’s kitchen, hardwood floors and access to a plant-filled balcony – the perfect place to check out the view (and the New Year’s Eve fireworks).
Swimming pool and gym located in the building complex. Membership is required.
What the Owners Love
The sheer convenience of the Pacific Building is hard to beat. It’s quite literally across the road from the beach, making a pair of flip flops the only transport you’ll need. There’s a private car space if you need to travel further afield – may we suggest a seafood lunch at Watson’s Bay? Not only that, but the building sits atop a high-end shopping precinct. Groceries are only an elevator ride away.
What We Love
The balconies, with their native and tropical plants, are wonderful. What could be better than sitting out on a beautiful deck in a stylish wicker chair with a cold drink in hand, admiring the view? Well, perhaps going out for a cold drink: but this is Bondi, there’s plenty of opportunity to do that too.
What the Traveller Loves
Speaking of going out, Bondi is home to some of Sydney’s best dining, nightlife and café culture. A flat white with poached eggs before hitting the surf is almost compulsory: Shuk, Gusto and Porch and Bennett St Dairy offer some of the best. For a long lunch or an elegant dinner it’s hard to go past Sean’s Panaroma and Icebergs, located at opposite ends of the beach. If a drink (and maybe even a dance) is more your speed, you’ll find the beautiful people at Ravesi’s, Public Bar and the Beach Road Hotel.
