Grand Sky Penthouse duplex in Sydney, Australia, scheduled for completion in 2021, offered for A$18 million
Overlooking the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, downtown, and marinas, this unique newly built penthouse is ideal for an overseas buyer
New York, New York (December 14, 2020) — The philosophy behind the Grand Sky Penthouse has always been to gracefully introduce nature into an aerie of unrivalled luxury on two levels. While residential towers typically house mechanicals on their roofs, the Grand Sky Penthouse keeps this rare space open for oversized skylights that are its hallmark, framing the play of clouds and beautiful sunlight. In the courtyard of the upper level, a serene koi pond, appointed with living green foliage, further imbues the residence with a sense of nature.
Located in the St Leonards enclave of Sydney, just a five-minute drive from the Central Business District, the Grand Sky Penthouse, with its two en suites and two additional bedrooms with a shared bath, all over 5,091 square feet, is represented by Ken Jacobs of Ken Jacobs Real Estate with global marketing services provided by Christie’s International Real Estate.
Zackary Wright, executive director of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “The Grand Sky Penthouse is all-new construction, a comparative rarity in Sydney, making it particularly attractive to overseas buyers, and its location in St Leonards is also popular with many international visitors.”
The residence is accessed from the lower level via the building’s private elevator reserved for the penthouses. The front door opens to an airy two-story foyer centered by a striking circular staircase that spirals around a glass elevator. The second level is introduced by the courtyard and koi pond with its living wall of greenery situated beneath a grand skylight.
A signature feature of the home is the kitchen. The new owner will be invited to the renowned Boffi showroom in Sydney to customize the kitchen in impeccable Italian style. The kitchen is also located beneath another large skylight. Other common areas on this level include the formal living room, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning Sydney views that extend to the Pacific Ocean, the dining room, a breakfast room, library and guest powder room.
Also on the upper level is the spacious primary suite with magnificent views, a bath with floor-to-ceiling marble tiles and free-standing tub, and a walk-in closet with a marble-topped dressing console, LED lighting, and fluted glass doors.
On the lower level is the second en suite, plus two additional bedrooms and a double bath. A screening room and children’s study round out the lower level’s offerings.
Both levels enjoy expansive outdoor terraces with radiant heat for all-weather use, while just off the kitchen is a grill for al fresco dining. Custom cabinetry is a further luxury appointment overall.
A three-car garage includes one bay with an electric charger and almost 200 square feet of storage. Other building amenities include catered dining and entertainment rooms, pool, gym, spa, sauna, golf lounge, yoga room, cinema, concierge services and 24-hour security.
