Property description

TIP. Click on the 'location' tab which takes you to MAP and 'drag the Pin to the LEFT boarder, to the 9 o'clock position and the CITY OF SYDNEY , Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, Opera House etc appear.
That's how close you are to everything. Now read the rest below or go to reviews and come and stay with us. It is a unforgettable location.

Charming Garage to Studio apartment conversion with great City views and shared house entry gate (electronic) from the street.
Everything you need: one Queen bed, shower and Wash machine, fully equipped kitchen, living and dining combined, 2 x spacious wardrobes, TV, Fan, Heater and balcony. Perfect for up to 2 pax. Shower and WC are have glass panels so if you have ‘modesty issues’ this studio might not be for you.
Wifi provided FOC. High quality linens, furnishings, microwave and kitchenware though most of our clients eat out.
Outstanding central location with all amenities so close by including cafes, restaurants, boutique shopping, harbour frontage, recreation facilities, public transport and entertainment.

Sydney, the gateway to Australia, is one of the world’s premier destinations. It is a city of spectacular natural beauty and stunning world famous architecture. Above all, it is renowned for its free-spirited outdoor lifestyle.

Overseas visitors delight in the diversity of walking opportunities that exist within easy reach of our home. So close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge (SHB) and the Opera House (OH) the Rocks and Botanical Gardens (BG).

Discover the charm of this magnificent harbour alone or on on guided walks that hug the coastline. Watch world-class yachts sail by as you hike along the high sea cliffs at the entrance to Sydney Harbour. Museums, Beaches, Art.

Take a guided tour and learn about Australia’s early history as you stroll through the alleys and laneways in the now-eclectic Rocks district. Just a short 12 min Ferry ride from our home that passes under the SHB and right by the OH. And guess what? Taking the Ferry is by far the preferred option of residents in this area. It’s just a ‘spectacular’ way for them to start the working day.
If you need convincing about our location then I suggest you take time to read though our many reviews.


SUMMARY:
Self contained one bedroom water view apartment. Common entrance shared with house.

• Equipped with all necessities for modern studio kitchen
• Shower / toilet mosaic tiled white. Note that the WC/shower has frosted glass walls and is partially open so not to restrict your view. Please review the photos and if you have 'modesty or privacy' issues you may want to reconsider.

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 memory foam queen sized bed.
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.
