FULL DETAILS.
Just 15 km or 20 mins by taxi from Airport. Transport is virtually at your doorstep; to take you anyway you wish, fast and easily by Taxi, Ferry, Water Taxi, Bus, or an easy bike ride. Buses run every 15 mins. Ferries run every 20 mins to Darling Harbour & City (Circular Quay/Opera House, & North Sydney. Water taxi service also available. Close attractions include: Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, Casino, Aquarium, Chinatown, Fish Markets, Barangaroo, Cruise Terminal, Balmain Village atmosphere. A brisk walk to the Ferry Wharf would take you just 9 minutes, while a walk to the nearest bus stop would take 2 minutes.
A 12 minute direct ferry ride to the City takes you past two of Australia’s and the World's most recognized icons. Under The Sydney Harbor Bridge and right past The Opera House. From the Opera House you can take a spectacularly scenic walk along Sydney Harbour or through The Royal Botanic Gardens.
The studio faces due East allowing you to enjoy the morning sun and a folding arm awning to control the sun on those hot summer days. Are you ready?
The apartment is 30m square. Free WI-FI and phone.
Converted from garage to studio just recently with polished concrete floor it is completely self-contained, with washing machine, 2 induction cooktops, fridge size to suit the apartment , crockery and cutlery. It sleeps two comfortably in a new fold away memory foam queen sized bed. You choose if you prefer it left out or fold it back to the wall during your stay. It is always in the down position for your arrival, ready and made in case you wish to sleep. (Everyone leaves it down). Lots of room either way. Quality white cotton linens (flannel for winter) and towels are hotel standard and it is so comfortable with great City and Harbour views from the bed or from the patio bifold doors. The doors have reflective film on them, just like City High Rise offices, so that during the day no one can see in but you can see out. At night though, if you wish to maintain privacy we advise clients to draw the blinds when the lights are switched on. Two large custom made cupboards allow ample space for you to unpack your things and stow your bags out of sight and out of the way behind the floor to ceiling curtains. The open WC, hand basin and shower are all high quality fittings mounted on classic white Italian mosaics.
Set in one of the world’s most beautiful cities we are located very close to The Sydney Opera House, The Harbour Bridge, TheAnzac Bridge, Darling Harbour, and Sydney’s CBD. All in fact visible from the house. Balmain has an enviable lifestyle due to its location on Sydney Harbour.
Formally a waterfront working man’s suburb with traditional Victorian Terrace houses and cottages and proximity to the City. It also boasts some of Sydney’s finest views.
This architecturally designed and decorated one bed studio apartment sits at the back of a fabulous Victorian Terrace house and though often rented to clients who rent the house itself, it is also sometimes available on a stand alone basis with common entry and garden. It is set up similarly to places I have enjoyed in other parts of the world such as France and Italy and is clearly inspired by those experiences.
Restaurants, cafes, providores and bars, elegant architecture, boutique fashion and home wares abound in this suburb all within very easy walking distance so popular with visitors and celebrities alike.
