Located on the edge of leafy Centennial Park, this elegant home offers charm, convenience and space for the whole family. Its classic design combines grandeur with comfort, classic and modern – a rare combination in one of Sydney’s most sought-after postcodes.
Parkside is arranged around an enormous open-plan living space. This area, with its parquetry floors and soaring ceilings says it all. The leaves of the surrounding trees and manicured gardens seem part of the room itself thanks to the full-length glass doors whilst privacy is easily achieved by shutting the flowing drapes.
Dining space for ten and a four-seater breakfast bar at the marble benchtop mean there’s space for everyone while the walk-in kitchen, wine storage and pantry space will please even the most demanding home chef. The lounge is incredibly comfortable, with room for a small army to snuggle up in front of the huge wall-mounted TV and gas fireplace.
The outhouse is a fully equipped games room and home gym sure to keep any teenager, child or child at heart busy for hours – it even comes with its own lounge area if the family can’t agree on a movie. Even better is the pool and spa, not to mention the extensive entertaining patio with a huge built-in BBQ.
What the owner loves:
Centennial Park might be Sydney’s most picturesque location. Its quiet, leafy streets are filled with Edwardian mansions, yet it’s easy walking distance from the hustle and bustle of Surry Hills and Paddington. Even the city is only a five-minute drive away. The park that gives the suburb its name is an urban jewel, 189 hectares of native bush, gardens, ponds and wetlands perfect for bike rides, runs and evening strolls.
What we love:
In some ways this doesn’t feel like an apartment in Sydney – when you step inside you could be in an elegant home in Europe, Chicago or New York. The marble benchtops, timber floors and arched windows help build the impression, but it’s unique features like the landscape wallpaper and mansard roof that cement it. Old world charm in the heart of a 21st century city.
What the family traveler loves:
Parkside is perfectly suited to families – not only is it spacious enough for a small army, it’s got everything to keep younger visitors entertained. The pool is always a hit, but the games room might be the real draw – it’s equipped with pool, ping pong, fusball and a tabletop arcade machine, as well as the separate lounge. Relax with a martini and let the kids take care of themselves.
