Located in one of Lilyfield’s most sought-after streets, 18 Chapel Street presents a bold new residence.  Designed by Simon Vaughan Architects and interiors by MXM Design Studio – and built by award-winning boutique building team, Micrah Projects – the new development brings high-end luxury across a dual-level floor plan.

The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, with lock-up garage residence sees imported Spanish porcelain tiling underfoot (with underfloor heating on the ground floor), high ceilings, galleries of glass and architectural skylights creating an airy light-filled space.

Further, the interiors – styled by Coloured Pencil – see a lavish kitchen as the centrepiece of the home, fitted with Manhattan marble benchtop and island, Zip hot water unit and integrated refrigerator with an outlook to the garden.

Elsewhere, the home sees flexible, fluid living courtesy of the architectural curves of the living and dining space fitted with a showcase fireplace. A separate family room offers built-in cabinetry and a comfortable space to retreat.

The residence is replete with four luxury bedroom suites all fitted with built-in robes while a study offers a built-in desk with brass inlays and LED strip lighting.

The master bedroom boasts ‘his’ and ‘hers’ robes, built-in bedside tables and a timber panelled feature wall. Here, the master also holds an ensuite, arriving with Manhattan marble – coordinating with the kitchen – and underfloor heating.

The other bathrooms follow suit with the same marble adornments and underfloor heating.

Outside, an expansive covered rear alfresco terrace sees a custom Cedar built-in barbeque and preparation area ideal for entertaining. In addition to the above, a central courtyard with established garden and spotted gum hardwood timber decking is also offered with great connection to the indoor spaces. It also doubles as a garage.

The residence is nearby to the bay and parklands, weekend markets, bus and light rail to Sydney CBD.

The listing is with Cobden & Hayson’s Ben Southwell (+61 407 896 212) and is set for auction on 13 February 2021 on-site. Price guide $3.3m.

New research from Knight Frank’s International Waterfront Index shows waterfront properties are costing more than double their inland counterparts in Sydney while in Melbourne waterside properties attract a 40% premium.

Australia’s coastline attracts some of the highest waterfront premiums in the world with Sydney topping the index — an average premium of 121% — compared to an equivalent home set away from the water.

Auckland ranked second on the list of 17 international locations — a premium of 76%. The list saw Gold Coast (71%), Perth (69%) and the Cap d’Antibes (59%) on the French Riviera round out the top 5.

Australia continued to feature prominently in the research with Brisbane’s waterfront premium coming in at 55%, with Melbourne also in the top 10 at 39%.

According to Knight Frank Australia’s head of residential research, Michelle Ciesielski, there has always been strong appetite for Sydney’s waterfront homes.

Australia’s luxury residential market has advanced, it lacks the depth of prestige markets in more established global cities said Cieselski.

“As a result, our Australian cities can achieve a significantly higher premium on the waterfront compared to a similar property inland without access to, or a view of, water,” she said.

“Also, Australia is known for its balmy outdoor lifestyle, so many buyers in this super-prime space are willing to pay a premium to secure the ideal position along the waterfront.”

The data also suggests that beachfront homes were most desirable, commanding a premium of 63% compared to harbour locations fetching 62% premium and coastal homes with a 40% premium.
