Harbourside Luxury Living
House - Woolloomooloo NSW
Located in Sydney’s iconic ‘Fingerwharf’ on Sydney Harbor, overlooking the Sydney naval base, this overly large two bedroom, two bathroom executive style apartment also comes complete with security undercover parking, swimming pool and gym access.
At the time this building was built, at the beginning of the 20th century, it was the longest timber structure anywhere in the world and is now the home to a great boutique hotel and high end executive style apartments. Being not only water front but ‘on’ the water you can imagine it is extremely tranquil at night whilst only being a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of the city.
The apartment has been beautifully styled with brand new furnishings throughout as you will see from the photographs. The main bedroom has a king size bed with study desk, a large walk-in wardrobe as well as ensuite with full length bath, double vanity and large separate shower recess. Floor to ceiling sliding windows open up to give that indoor/outdoor appeal that Australia is renowned for. The second double bedroom has direct access to the large balcony which is also accessed from the living area.
The second bathroom is right across the hallway from this bedroom.
The kitchen has everything you could possibly need with gas cooktop, oven, microwave, family sized fridge and dishwasher as well as plenty of room for the cooking enthusiasts!
A stylish oak dining table with six person setting flows through to the living area, with Smart TV as well as a sofa bed and all with amazing views over the water. Again there are glass sliding doors that open up outside onto the balcony which flows from the second bedroom.
There is also a separate laundry with washer and dryer which makes it ideal for extended stays.
You have the added advantage of direct access on the wharf from inside the building to some of Sydney’s finest restaurants such as ‘China Doll’, ‘Otto’s’, ‘Manta’, ‘Kingsley’s Steakhouse’ to name just a few. There are also all the bars and cafes at the Ovolo hotel as well as a number of bars, pubs and cafes nearby with Potts Point being right nearby.
All this luxury is only a 15 minute walk through Sydney Botanical Gardens to the world famous Sydney Opera House.
A short stroll will get you to iconic attractions like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, also popular restaurants and waterholes. But really, who needs to go anywhere when your room rate already includes everything?
Colonial steps link the fascinating heritage of Potts Point and Woolloomooloo, where naval ships first moored in 1856. These harbourside neighbourhoods share an enviable reputation too for acclaimed restaurants, cool bars, enticing boutiques, and theatres showcasing young writers and performers.
Admire art deco buildings in elegant Potts Point, such as Carisbrooke and Carinthia in Springfield Avenue and Franconia and Macleay Regis in Macleay Street. In nearby Orwell Street is the old Metro Theatre, which staged the musical Hair in 1970 and housed the Oscar-winning movie studio that made Happy Feet.
Woolloomooloo’s Finger Wharf is one of the longest timber wharves in the world. Once a busy cargo dock, there are restaurants, a marina and Ovolo, a boutique hotel. The famous pie cart Harry’s Cafe de Wheels is near the wharf. Across the road are Artspace exhibitions in the Gunnery and classic pubs.
Among the intriguing things to do and see is a visit to the Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre, on Garden Island. As this island in Woolloomooloo Bay is an active naval base, you’ll need to take a ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay and alight at Garden Island. Entry into the museum is free.
For evocative plays, visit Hayes Theatre in Potts Point and Old Fitz Theatre in the Old Fitzroy Hotel, Woolloomooloo. Complementing the cutting-edge theatre are delicious food and wine experiences, including the ‘eat street’ in Llankelly Place, next to Kings Cross. Places to stay suit various budgets.
