Point Piper 1/1A Longworth Avenue
Art Deco Elegance Infused With European Flair In Sydney's Most Coveted Harbour Enclave
An exceedingly rare opportunity to acquire a ground floor, two bedroom apartment with its own private garden entrance in the exclusive dress circle in Point Piper, one of the most tightly held suburbs in Australia.
This solidly built property features elegant lines of Art Deco architecture fused with timeless European styling, a fully restored, turn key-ready, high end renovation that combines the best of new and old for those who appreciate real quality.
In a convenient position, opposite the Royal Motor Yacht Club on the peaceful northern side of Piper House, this unique apartment has a private entrance and no common walls, in a whisper quiet, prized block of nine.
Accessed via a grand security foyer, the classical layout has separate living and internal access to secure garaging. Rooms with ornate 2.7 metre ceilings are accompanied by a generous series windows, original deco architraves and dark Belgian oak chevron-patterned floors throughout.
Situated on the northern side, the property has an elegant series of windows inviting morning and afternoon light, dappled garden outlooks and the daily chorus of local kookaburras and kurrawong.
Two tranquil bedrooms are appointed with built-in robes, the main bedroom a roomy sanctuary, sharing a glamorous marble bathroom/powder room with a free standing La Chapelle freestanding basin from English company Lefroy Brooks, underfloor heating, fluted deco lightning and ceiling-high chrome heated towel rail.
A new custom kitchen features sumptuous Italian slab marble benches and splash backs, hand-painted cabinetry, a powerful Wolf oven and matching hood fan, Miele dishwasher and discreet washer/dryer, French door fridge, and ceramic butlers sink.
The no-expense spared interior has Perrin & Rowe and Mother of Pearl nickel-plated hardware throughout with Lee Broom lighting overhead. The traditional brick building retains heat and cool to create a remarkably temperate environment.
Piper House is but one of a handful of Deco apartments set in a cosy dress circle nestled between Rose Bay and Double Bay, adjacent to some of the most exclusive harbour beaches and facilities in the eastern suburbs: 200m by a convenient back stairs to idyllic Lady Martins Beach and the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club, 700m to Catalina Restaurant, 850m to Redleaf Pool, and within walking distance of Rose Bay Police station and Marina and proximity to private schools and Plumer Road shops.
