From the street, this Sydney property is relatively unassuming with its boxy silhouette and large picture windows – but step inside, and surprising soaring concrete volumes await.
The neo-brutalist home – located at 39A Carlotta in Sydney’s well-heeled Double Bay enclave – is listed via Gavin Rubinstein and Cae Thomas, and blends features of minimalism, loft-living and craftsmanship across its 500 sq m.
Walls, floors and ceilings of the five-storey home are exposed pre-cast concrete panels offset by American walnut panelling, custom joinery and brass and steel accents.
On the main level is the kitchen, with a sculptural brass island, and a lounge and dining area which open onto a covered balcony via sliding glass doors. Midcentury flourishes include a suspended 1960s-style fireplace, custom concrete benches topped by leather cushions, and terrazzo flooring.
Crittall-style glass walls encase the cast-concrete staircase, maximising the flow of light through the five-bedroom home’s interiors, fitted with smart-home technology, surround and LED lighting. Other perks include a professional gym, sauna and steam room and of course a wet-edge swimming pool whose oculus bottom peels onto the home office below.
It heads to auction on 16 February 2021 with guide price on application.
