Property Journey: 

After moving from Toorak in Victoria, Michael Connolly’s client was looking for a new home within one of Sydney’s eastern villages. A sense of community would be important and after spending some time in Surry Hills, Woollahra, Darling Point and Potts Point – we settled on Potts Point as a preferred suburb. My client loves the grand art deco buildings and the walk to everywhere convenience in this dynamic urban locality. Further to the brief requirements were 3 bedrooms to accommodate visiting family and a balcony for alfresco living. After considering a number of properties in what is a very tight market we purchased the perfect apartment in Byron Hall. Despite a competitive auction we had identified value and were able to confidently secure the property within budget. Located right in the beating heart of Potts Point within the magnificent Art Deco landmark ‘Byron Hall’, this glorious apartment has a distinctly New York vibe. Facing due north, this sun-soaked 5th floor residence captures dramatic urban views taking in the Harbour Bridge. Graced with beautiful classic details such as solid timber joinery and terrazzo floors. Designed in 1929 by Claude Hamilton, the building has been meticulously revived and features an elegant timber-panelled foyer and a common roof terrace with spectacular city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge views.
