Kurraba Residences Is Redefining Luxury Harbourside Living
A new architectural icon on Sydney harbour.
A new architectural icon on Sydney harbour.
Set to become a notable architectural icon, the new Sydney project – Kurraba Residences at the tip of the headland in Kurraba Point – offers a front row seat to the action with 180-degree views that wander across the CBD, Opera House, Bridge and beyond, and which form a heady entree to what is a once in a generation build.
A powerful alignment of nature, architecture and interiors, Kurraba Residences rests between Neutral Bay and Shell Cove, encompassing just 24 designer addresses spanning 2- and 3- bedrooms inclusive of an ultimate 4-bedroom, 4.5 bath penthouse.
Brought together by a tantalising trio – SJB architects, Mathieson Architects and landscapers Dangar Barin Smith – the exclusive Thirdi Group project proves a curved wonder that sits within the ’20s narrative of nearby properties, a tasteful nod to heritage as seen in the exterior use of shapely brickwork.
Each residence boasts a sense of style, space and elevated living, with finishes that include solid limestone and marble, alongside touches of bronze and fine ash timbers, with design that seamlessly melds the indoors to alfresco terraces.
Kitchens are fitted with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, with Grigio Argento marble workspaces boasting fluted detailing and custom fireplaces that align in the use of the finish.
Bedrooms feature commodious and functional wardrobes (with the option of customised cabinetry), while bathrooms and ensuites have carved marble basins, Vola tapware and custom stone baths alongside bronze adornments.
Luscious private gardens come grafted to several apartments, while others offer the use of a shared rooftop garden with views across the harbour. Elsewhere, landscaped grounds spill to the neighbouring Kurraba Reserve which borders the water’s edge and where heritage figs and slender palms line the shore.
The literal crown of Kurraba Residences is the 430sqm, two-storey penthouse. Serviced by private lift, the interiors echo the themes of other residences while limestone floors, coffered ceilings and skylights lighten the second story that’s accessed via a bespoke, stonework staircase.
The penthouse also boasts custom wine cellar, expansive garden terrace – the outdoor area measuring 250sqm – and private infinity pool framed by spectacular city and harbour views.
The main bathroom also takes in the aforementioned vistas and includes circular marble vanities and carved marble baths that complement an oculus skylight. Further, a second living area and private study forms a removed and private sanctuary.
Each residence has private parking and access to a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar as well as a communal lounge space and concierge services.
Kurraba Residences sit 10 minutes from the Sydney CBD by car (or ferry from nearby Kurraba Point Wharf). The acclaimed Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Neutral Bay shopping precinct and Balmoral Beach are all within nearby and easy access.
The project will officially launch on November 7, with building to be completed in Q4 2022.
