When you’re only 17km from Sydney CBD you could be forgiven for thinking you’d struggle to find contemporary residences that answer the tricky quality/affordability conundrum. But Astoria Punchbowl has been cleverly designed to do exactly that.

Across just six levels, developer Piper Property Group has been generous with their 25 years residential experience, to create a diverse collection of one and two bedroom apartments that have smart details where they matter.

Equally, Architects Fox Johnston have not held back on their cutting edge ideas here, bestowing these luxurious one and two bedroom apartments with a host of clever ideas and modern finishes.

The first thing we noticed about Astoria’s interiors are the free-flowing floor plans. They include neat ideas like the sun-filled loggias, giving you the perfect combination of indoor-outdoor dining and relaxing. These gorgeous spaces flow directly from your living area through sliding doors to maximise light. 

Open these up and your living area expands into a truly multifunctional space. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect place to enjoy a lazy weekend breakfast or summer evening with friends. And to get practical for a second, the loggia also maximises your control of light, ventilation and sound to your apartment. Cool and clever.

Taking a look at the galley kitchens we get another taste of the Fox Johnston touch, with simplicity and functionality on show. Gas cook tops and ovens, elegant bench tops and sophisticated tapware combine with sleek cabinetry to create a space we know will become the hub of these entertainer’s homes.

Head into the all-important bathroom area and again practicality combines with elegance for a calming space. Contemporary touches like the black tapware and large shower head help create an environment totally in keeping with a home that has its eye firmly on the modern lifestyle. The suspended vanity (complete with storage, of course) and large floor tiles also add to the bathroom’s restrained sense of calmness.

We’ve seen many takes on the growing trend for shared spaces, particularly the inclusion of vegetable and herb gardens. Head up to the roof of Astoria and that’s what you’ll find, enabling you to pick fresh ingredients and thrown them straight into your best BBQ dish – the rooftop BBQ and dining setup is the ideal spot to entertain and enjoy the views.

Common areas also include landscaped terraces designed to be peaceful and inviting, along with additional break-out areas so everyone can find their own perfect nook to read or catch up with social feeds.

It’s true, nobody likes running from the car to their home in either the rain or blistering heat, and thanks to the secure basement parking and central elevators, those short but essential everyday journeys are made easier.

Like many suburban retail hubs, Punchbowl has a vibrant and eclectic mix of cafes, cool eateries and old school fresh produce on offer. Bankstown’s Central Shopping Centre is also close by for all your major retail needs.

With the daily CBD commute taken care of thanks to train and bus connections and easy freeway access, Astoria Punchbowl offers a collection of modern homes in an established suburb – the perfect combination.
