Above the buzz of lively Darlinghurst is this lavish little gem, boasting front row seats to Sydney’s iconic harbour… and uninterrupted views of a certain harbour bridge.
Suitably named Sky Loft, this contemporary, three-bedroom apartment has been expertly styled; with rich timber flooring, designer furnishings and Italian marble. From the dreamy beds, draped in plush linen, to the sleek bathrooms stocked with Aveda toiletries, the interior is as impressive as the view.
The fully-equipped kitchen is fit for any budding chef with Electrolux appliances and a large island bench perfect for entertaining, as is the adjoining living area, furnished with two deluxe leather lounges and a 12-seat dining table, underneath a glitzy chandelier.
But the real show-stopper is the apartment’s full-length balcony overlooking the city skyline. Thoughtfully, the balcony doors fully retract to extend the dining and living space – cue sunset dinner party… Of course, if you need assistance as you wine and dine, a personal butler can be arranged.
And if you ever tire of this setting (though we doubt you will), Darlinghurst is renowned for its nightlife. Slick cocktail bars and fine dining restaurants abound, and the whole lot is only a short distance from the CBD.
Oh, and did we mention downstairs is a lap pool and gym? Suffice to stay we could easily settle into this chic city stay for good.
