Enjoy Sky-high Living in This Sydney Harbour Penthouse

Property of the Week: Crown Residences at One Barangaroo offers luxury living among the clouds

By Serina Tatham

Standing 902 feet tall, Crown Residences at One Barangaroo is Australia’s first fully integrated hospitality branded residence building. A sculptural marvel, the skeleton is made of three petals that twist as it rises, and it houses Crown Towers Sydney hotel as well as the residences.

Located in Sydney’s central business district, there’s a hum of life all around. With sprawling parklands, fine dining, copious shopping boutiques, and cultural institutions like Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge within walking distance, there is an endless array of things to do.

Situated over two floors, The Penthouse is on the uppermost level of the building. At nearly 9,150 sq ft and sitting 800 feet above sea level, it is the highest home at Crown Residences. The expansive living area boasts 21-ft floor-to-ceiling windows through which homeowners can enjoy complete 360-degree views across Sydney Harbour and out to the Pacific Ocean.

Interiors are courtesy of Meyer Davis Studio Interiors, and no expense has been spared. As you would expect from a world-renowned interior design firm, throughout the home you can find thoughtful touches and stylish finishes that are crafted from the finest materials. Using Sydney Harbour as their inspiration, the gleaming marble floors and color palette reflect the surrounding environment and create a chic, contemporary space.

Entering on the first floor of the property, the vast windows immediately grab your attention and draw you into the open-planned living/dining area. Off to the side is a kitchen with a large center island made from natural stone, Wolf appliances, and integrated Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezer, including a built-in wine fridge. Behind is a large butler’s kitchen, ideal for those evenings where you would prefer to hand the reins over to someone else. Both kitchens have been reviewed for function and specification by one of Australia’s most revered chefs, Guillaume Brahimi, ensuring that it is not only beautiful but practical.

Approach the second floor either from the internal lift or the feature staircase, offering spectacular vistas from the galleried hall upstairs. Throughout, there are rich timbers, rare marbles, and custom pieces that have been commissioned from around the world, making this unique property even more special.

Outside, there is over 500 sq ft of open-air space across three protected balconies, one of which houses a private plunge pool – the only residence within Crown Residences to have one. Homeowners will also have access to some of the finest facilities courtesy of the hotel it shares its address with, from the concierge service, in-room residence dining, a VIP-only pool deck, gym, tennis courts, and spa.

Crown Residences at One Barangaroo was awarded a 6 Star Green Star Certification, representing the world’s best practice in sustainability. When planning the development, great care and consideration were taken to ensure that sustainability was at the heart of the project. From the high-performance façade reducing the solar loads and ensuring the residences exceed regulatory performance requirements, to having 100% LED lighting to reduce emissions as well as a highly efficient water system that recycles rainwater, everything has been thought of.

The Penthouse is available for $100m AUD ($71.8m USD),
