In one of the most celebrated buildings in Sydney, 'Residence 6' in Italian architect Renzo Piano's acclaimed Macquarie Apartments delivers an outstanding luxury lifestyle with iconic views over the Royal Botanic Gardens and glimpses to the harbour on one side, thrilling views to the city on the other side. This dual aspect through-apartment has been architecturally designed for a heightened luxury living experience with a significant 214sqm single-level floorplan adorned with high-end appointments - the largest non-penthouse floorplate within the building.
Residents here have level and exclusive lift access to a private lobby shared with only one neighbour. A generous wintergarden is perfect for all year-round entertaining and captures leafy outlooks over the gardens, around to the harbour and the State Library. The grand master suite with views, a custom-built walk-in wardrobe and marble spa bath ensuite with frameless glass shower is a highlight. The second bedroom comes complete with city views and built-in wardrobes. Originally a three-bedroom floorplan, the property now features a large comfortable separate formal lounge room with city views which could easily be returned back to a third bedroom. There is also a home office with be-spoke joinery and workspace.
The chef's kitchen is equipped with the finest Gaggenau appliances which include a premium gas cooktop and integrated fridge freezer and a separate area for casual dining has views and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that capture fresh summer-time breezes. Other features include a first class 32sqm double garaging plus storage, ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling air-conditioning system, remote blinds and signature motorised glass louvers, brand new wool carpet and interior paintwork, white timber plantation shutters in rear rooms, video intercom entrance and an established 24-hour 7 days per week concierge service.
'Residence 6' is positioned on the inner-north eastern side of the building and sits just above the tree tops of the Botanic Gardens, and has city views from the rear. The marble, granite and glass used throughout remain in top-notch condition, and its elegant design has been beautifully constructed and maintained.
This highly sought-after building also offers exclusive access to a full suite of on-site resort facilities including an indoor swimming pool, spa, sauna, steam and gymnasium. It is perfectly located on the doorstep of the city's harbour foreshore, restaurants, boutiques, vibrant business and arts precinct, walking distance to the State Library and NSW Parliament House, the Opera House, Circular Quay and the heart of the CBD.
Piano is not short on accolades. He has a Pritzker Prize, sometimes referred to as the Nobel Prize of architecture, as well as a gold medal from the American Institute of Architects. The architects who nominated Piano for the latter were effusive, describing his work as "sculptural, beautiful, technically accomplished [and] sustainable ...". It is "executed with integrity and an abiding awareness that architecture is the beautiful intervention that seams nature with technology."
