Harbourside Retreat brings to life the idyllic eastern Sydney bayside lifestyle, where days are happily lost outdoors in the pool, lazing on the upstairs balcony and enjoying a casual stroll to nearby beaches and cafes. Relaxing is easy in this breezy four-bedroom architect-designed family home in Double Bay, with inviting sunny spaces and exquisite design; the perfect mix of luxurious indoor and outdoor living which will leave you wanting for nothing.
Harbourside Retreat is the distinctive design you’d expect from the award-winning Tribe Studio practice. And you get a sense of that outstanding quality upon arrival at this peaceful bayside home. After parking in the garage, or in the driveway, you’ll find the entry via a private side path.
Waiting inside is a white and welcoming open plan kitchen, dining and living with an unmistakable calm beach house undertone. Your eye is immediately drawn to the oasis beyond the living area and bi-fold doors. Enclosed by coastal plantings is a solar heated pool, alfresco dining zone and deck with BBQ. There’s something for everyone and every occasion.
Back inside, soft greys, whites and timber maintain a relaxing mood. Comfy sofas in the living area invite you to put your feet up. The dining table has comfortable seating for up to ten guests, encouraging you to simply sit all day. And with garden views, a double height ceiling, exquisite kitchen and grand custom shelving, there’s a lot to talk about.
In the kitchen, there’s room for several guests to prepare meals with ease and of course in style. A large marble island, splashback and bench top complements the white cabinets, while black fixtures offer an elegant contrast. On this level, you’ll also find a separate sitting room, which can be used as a fourth bedroom.
Upstairs the grey and white palette continues as contemporary beach-styling reminds you of your enviable location. On the mezzanine, you have a convenient study nook which overlooks the ground floor. Two of the bedrooms offer queen beds where a serene night’s sleep is assured. That sense of serenity extends to the family bathroom. While in the master suite, a romantic atmosphere greets you where you have the luxury of a balcony, king bed and resort-style ensuite.
From this ideal central location, you’re a short stroll from Double Bay Village where you’ll find bars, eateries and exclusive boutiques. For a day of relaxation, pack the beach bag and take an easy walk to Redleaf Beach or enjoy a picnic by the bay. If you’re more adventurous, hire a sail boat, kayak or paddle board for a memorable harbour experience. And with Double Bay Wharf within walking distance a quick ferry ride will take you to the CBD and Sydney’s most famous attractions. While the closest bus stop is only a couple of minutes from your doorstep.
