There are prime locations and then there’s ‘The Empire’ and its north east facing state-of-the-art sub-penthouse with panoramic ocean views across Bondi Beach.

The contemporary sundrenched masterpiece offers 4-bedroom, 2-bathrooms and 2-car parking across 220sqm.

The unique address is the amalgamation of two oversized apartments and sees solid Tasmanian oak flooring and custom interior cabinetry and joinery throughout for a natural, airy aesthetic.

Naturally, the highlight of the home is the views out over Bondi Beach, brought into the home by 18-metres of wide bay windows – accompanied by an equal measure of sunbeds — capturing the entire length of the iconic beach.

The stylish residence sees an entertainer’s kitchen with Sub-Zero fridge, Miele appliances, Vola tapware and Carrara marble benchtops. Within the kitchen is also a dual entrance 4.5-metre walk-through pantry – to be filled with one’s gourmet dreams.

Elsewhere the home sees four tranquil bedrooms, each fitted with custom joinery while one of the four enjoys access to the private terrace.

The master retreat enjoys beach views and is replete with a marble ensuite and expansive ‘his’ and ‘hers’ walk-in dressing room.

The bathrooms are fitted with Villeroy and Boch porcelain and sees the same marble adornments as the master retreat.

Throughout the apartment, a number of invisible recessed art hanging systems are found – including in the bathrooms – while the apartment is illuminated by Italian Iguzzini lighting.

The combination of the artful design and natural timbers complements the beachside location –and is footsteps from a number of renowned restaurants, bars, cafes, coastal walks, boutique fashion, surf and sand.

The listing is with McGrath’s Simon Exleton (+61 414 549 966), POA;

Ray White’s chief economist outlines her predictions for housing market trends in 2024

Ray White’s chief economist, Nerida Conisbee says property price growth will continue next year and mortgage holders will need to “survive until 2025” amid expectations of higher interest rates for longer.

Ms Conisbee said strong population growth and a housing supply shortage combatted the impact of rising interest rates in 2023, leading to unusually strong price growth during a rate hiking cycle. The latest CoreLogic data shows home values have increased by more than 10 percent in the year to date in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. Among the regional markets, price growth has been strongest in regional South Australia with 8.6 percent growth and regional Queensland at 6.9 percent growth.

“As interest rates head close to peak, it is expected that price growth will continue. At this point, housing supply remains extremely low and many people that would be new home buyers are being pushed into the established market,” Ms Conisbee said. “Big jumps in rents are pushing more first home buyers into the market and population growth is continuing to be strong.”

Ms Conisbee said interest rates will be higher for longer due to sticky inflation. “… we are unlikely to see a rate cut until late 2024 or early 2025. This means mortgage holders need to survive until 2025, paying far more on their home loans than they did two years ago.”

Buyers in coastal areas currently have a window of opportunity to take advantage of softer prices, Ms Conisbee said. “Look out for beach house bargains over summer but you need to move quick. In many beachside holiday destinations, we saw a sharp rise in properties for sale and a corresponding fall in prices. This was driven by many pandemic driven holiday home purchases coming back on to the market.”

3 key housing market trends for 2024

Here are three of Ms Conisbee’s predictions for the key housing market trends of 2024.

Luxury apartment market to soar

Ms Conisbee said the types of apartments being built have changed dramatically amid more people choosing to live in apartments longer-term and Australia’s ageing population downsizing. “Demand is increasing for much larger, higher quality, more expensive developments. This has resulted in the most expensive apartments in Australia seeing price increases more than double those of an average priced apartment. This year, fewer apartments being built, growing population and a desire to live in some of Australia’s most sought-after inner urban areas will lead to a boom in luxury apartment demand.”

Homes to become even greener

The rising costs of energy and the health impacts of heat are two new factors driving interest in green homes, Ms Conisbee said. “Having a greener home utilising solar and batteries makes it cheaper to run air conditioning, heaters and pool pumps. We are heading into a particularly hot summer and having homes that are difficult to cool down makes them far more dangerous for the elderly and very young.”

More people living alone

For some time now, long-term social changes such as delayed marriage and an ageing population have led to more people living alone. However, Ms Conisbee points out that the pandemic also showed that many people prefer to live alone for lifestyle reasons. “Shorter term, the pandemic has shown that given the chance, many people prefer to live alone with a record increase in single-person households during the time. This trend may influence housing preferences, with a potential rise in demand for smaller dwellings and properties catering to individuals rather than traditional family units.”
