Sydney’s sparkling harbour is unlike anywhere else in the world.
That’s why when it comes to Sydney living, it doesn’t get much better than waking up to views of the Harbour Bridge, Parramatta River, Blue Mountains and the city skyline.
And this dream for many can now be a reality, with a contemporary new development called ‘Billyard’ in the highly sought-after suburb of Gladesville.
With its curved façade, blending modern elegance with the building’s historical past, internationally renowned architect SJB has created a landmark development.
And so far, developer Anthony Andretta of BridgeLane says it’s the second-to-none location attracting buyers in droves.
“It’s right in the heart of everything... in the centre of the town centre, across from Gladesville Shopping Village and a short trip to Balmain and Hunters Hill,” he says.With a mix of one and two bedroom apartments, Billyard has largely appealed to owner-occupiers who already live in the surrounding suburbs.
And Mr Andretta says that’s because for most buyers, once they’ve bought in the area, it’s unlikely they’ll ever want to leave.
It’s not hard to see why that’s the case.
Gladesville village consists of a number of buzzing cafes, shops and parks, while top private and public schools such as St Joseph’s College, Woolwich Convent and Gladesville Public School are nearby.
On top of that, public transport options such as bus stops and the ferry wharf are at your doorstep, while the CBD is a short 15 minutes away.
And for those who like to immerse themselves with the outdoors, there are plenty of tracks including Bay Run to walk, run, or cycle.“Location is everything,” says Mr Andretta.
And with architect SJB on board, the fittings in each of the 56 apartments is state-of-the-art.
Think stone benchtops, timber floorboards, and panoramic windows to soak up that incredible view.As well as pull out pantries, integrated fridges and Ilve appliances.
“The finishes are higher standard than any other development,” Mr Andretta says.
And that extends through to the bathrooms, where the idea was to re-create the tranquillity of a day spa.
Spanning six levels, the ground floor will be central to the fabric of the village’s bustling atmosphere.
There will be a number of boutique shops and alfresco cafes that connect through to their own garden courtyards.
But if you prefer to sit back and enjoy the incredible location, perched on the top floor are private rooftop gardens.
With construction slated for completion in early 2018, click here to be among one of Sydney’s most exciting new developments.
