  • 3 Beds

The creative reinvention of this iconic 1880s corner terrace in the historic Blackwattle Bay precinct pays homage to its Victorian past while breathing light, life and vitality into the home. A raw palette of materials and robust design create a bold statement with bespoke interiors delivering an artistic aesthetic with polished concrete, reclaimed timber and soaring 3.7m ceilings bringing a cool industrial vibe and a dramatic sense of space. Spread over three levels with breakout zones to retreat, work and entertain, the rear of the home opens out to a landscaped garden haven with a studio but it's the unique roof deck that steals the show. Basking in a northerly aspect, this rooftop retreat overlooks the harbour with 360-degree views that sweep over Blackwattle Bay and the city's skyline that transform into a dazzling backdrop by night. As unique as it is inspiring, the three-bedroom home is on the doorstep of Sydney's most exciting harbour enclave with award-winning waterfront parkland that's transforming into a world-class destination anchored by the new Sydney Fish Markets.
