Comfortable lounge furnishings, a modern teak and stainless steel table set for 6, a four-burner BBQ (plus wok), and outdoor table ware.
Breakfast on this terrace is a most enjoyable experience
The large umbrella awning is easily angled to give protection from the sun while you drink your morning coffee with the city skyline, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House in the distance. …
At dusk it is quintessential Sydney, as the sun sets behind the city skyline to the soundtrack of lorikeets, currawongs, and cockatoos in the giant eucalyptus tree.
The entry to the apartment is by a modernist curved hallway (good Feng Shui) which opens up to a massive open plan living space. On this lower level of the apartment is a modern kitchen featuring SMEG appliances, tableware for 6, and everything needed for food preparation including a Kenwood smoothie machine and a Nespresso Lattisima+.
