Listing of the Day

Location: Sydney, Australia

Price: A$7.5 million (US$5.5 million)

Situated at the highest point of Point Piper, Australia’s most expensive suburb, Peak Penthouse overlooks Sydney’s scenic harbor and iconic Harbour Bridge. Owned by the same family since 1979, the residence hasn’t been on the market for decades.

But the residence remains in “excellent condition,” said Michael Pallier, managing director of Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty. In fact, Mr. Pallier noted, “one of Australia’s leading and internationally known interior designers, Frank Grill, was commissioned to decorate the apartment on several occasions.”

Today, the residence’s interior is decidedly modern with white-walls and expansive windows throughout that offer views of Sydney’s scenic skyline from every room. Subtle design features, such as a chevron patterned wood floor, white marble countertops and eye-catching lighting fixtures, warm the contemporary home.

Considering the home’s cleanly contemporary design and striking vantage point, Mr. Pallier called the residence “a canvas upon which to fashion a luxurious lifestyle quite beyond anything else that [Sydney] has to offer.”

Outside, the residence opens to a pool and two decks, granting homeowners a “grandstand position” to “one of the southern hemisphere’s truly iconic spectacles,” Mr. Pallier said.  

It’s called the Peak Penthouse, Mr. Pallier said, because it is “without equal….[located] at the highest point in Australia’s most exclusive suburb, with unmatched aspects over the most celebrated harbor in the Southern Hemisphere.”
