In a Class of its Own, This Superbly Designed Apartment is a Tranquil, Private Sanctuary in the Heart of Double Bay
201/349 New South Head Road Double Bay
2 bed | 2 bath | 1 carSet in the landmark building ‘Bibaringa’, a mid-century modern icon designed by Douglas Snelling, the apartment is footsteps to Double Bay’s refined village life, harbour beach, ferry and every amenity. Yet it is peacefully secluded at the end a verdant private road in its own lush micro-environment of heritage-listed rainforest trees, legacy of Sydney’s first colonial nursery.
Enjoying a desirable sunny north-east corner aspect, and calm treetop vistas from every room, Apartment 201 has been ingeniously redesigned to the highest standards for contemporary living by the distinguished architecture firm Tzannes.
From Bibaringa’s elegant glass foyer, an elevator opens directly into the private lobby of this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment that has been dramatically opened up from the original 3br configuration to create spacious living, dining, study and kitchen spaces. Gliding wall panels and bespoke cabinetry cleverly conceal or reveal different living zones in this architectural jewel box. A sunbathed balcony runs the length of the apartment enjoying lush views, harbour breezes and birdsong.
