Lovely 2 Bed home swap in Sydney, Australia
A beautiful two bedroom apartment in a late 1920s building with stunning views over Sydney Harbour. Easy access to City, cultural centres, nightlife and beaches.
Comfortable furnishings compliment a neo-classical design which includes marble flooring, antique columns and a tromp l'oeil ceiling. The master bedroom has an ensuite bath and walk in wardrobe. Second bedroom/study also has an ensuite bathroom and there is a separate guest powder room. A highly practical kitchen featuring marble floor and walls and granite worktop contains all necessary appliances and is more than adequately stocked with both cookware and tableware. Adjoining lounge and 8 seater dining room lead to a sunroom overlooking the harbour. There is a 55" flat screen television in the lounge and the unit is equipped with wi-fi. Carpeted bedrooms and reception rooms have underfloor heating for winter, and the apartment's elevation and through-ventilation make air-conditioning totally unnecessary in the summer.
The apartment is on the fourth floor of "Meudon", a nine storey building which imitates the style of the famous "Flatiron Building" in New York. With only two units per floor, it is a happy and peaceful community, despite being within a stone's throw of Sydney's most active and exciting cafe scene and night life, Potts Point.
For those requiring reciprocal car sharing, there is a secure car space in the next door building. This also grants access to the neighbouring landscaped garden with swimming pool.
Elizabeth Bay is perfectly located for visitors to Sydney who seek easy access to the city's many attractions, while enjoying a comfortable home in a classical setting. Along with its neighbouring suburbs, Potts Point, Kings Cross and Darlinghurst, it affords an eclectic mix of elegance and sophistication with a touch of the bohemian. Within one minute's walk of the front door, you are in MacLeay Street, Potts Point, with access to some of Sydney's most popular restaurants and cafes. For those who prefer to eat in, a supermarket, a branch of the famous 'Fratelli' grocers and the best home-baked bread in the Southern Hemisphere are all within three minutes walk.
Easy access to harbour-front parklands allows plenty of scope for walkers or joggers. Five minutes walk will take you to Rushcutters Bay, home to the Cruising Yacht Club which hosts the annual Sydney/Hobart Yacht Race.
Access to the city centre and most of Sydney's main attractions could not be more simple. Regular buses leave from just around the corner, the nearest subway station is just over five minutes walk, and taxis are always available. For those who prefer to walk, it takes barely half an hour to get to the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, overlooked by the NSW Art Gallery and an ideal route to the Opera House and Circular Quay ferry terminal.
For trips further afield, the location is equally convenient. Access to and from Sydney's domestic and international airport is easily achieved within 30 minutes.
