Converted from garage to studio just recently with polished concrete floor it is completely self-contained, with washing machine, 2 induction cooktops, fridge size to suit the apartment , crockery and cutlery. It sleeps two comfortably in a new fold away memory foam queen sized bed. You choose if you prefer it left out or fold it back to the wall during your stay. It is always in the down position for your arrival, ready and made in case you wish to sleep. (Everyone leaves it down). Lots of room either way. Quality white cotton linens (flannel for winter) and towels are hotel standard and it is so comfortable with great City and Harbour views from the bed or from the patio bifold doors. The doors have reflective film on them, just like City High Rise offices, so that during the day no one can see in but you can see out. At night though, if you wish to maintain privacy we advise clients to draw the blinds when the lights are switched on. Two large custom made cupboards allow ample space for you to unpack your things and stow your bags out of sight and out of the way behind the floor to ceiling curtains. The open WC, hand basin and shower are all high quality fittings mounted on classic white Italian mosaics.
Set in one of the world’s most beautiful cities we are located very close to The Sydney Opera House, The Harbour Bridge, TheAnzac Bridge, Darling Harbour, and Sydney’s CBD. All in fact visible from the house. Balmain has an enviable lifestyle due to its location on Sydney Harbour.
Formally a waterfront working man’s suburb with traditional Victorian Terrace houses and cottages and proximity to the City. It also boasts some of Sydney’s finest views.
This architecturally designed and decorated one bed studio apartment sits at the back of a fabulous Victorian Terrace house and though often rented to clients who rent the house itself, it is also sometimes available on a stand alone basis with common entry and garden. It is set up similarly to places I have enjoyed in other parts of the world such as France and Italy and is clearly inspired by those experiences.
Restaurants, cafes, providores and bars, elegant architecture, boutique fashion and home wares abound in this suburb all within very easy walking distance so popular with visitors and celebrities alike.

8 of us stayed in this beautiful house and studio for a week over New Years Eve. The house was very clean and comfortable with amazing views from the balconies and the roof top terrace. On NYE we watched the early fireworks from the rooftop terrace. Later some of us walked down to the waters edge (about 10 mins) for a great view of the midnight fireworks. We bought Opal cards and used the nearby Balmain East ferry to get around Sydney quickly and cheaply. Much more enjoyable than driving! The Balmain shopping centre is about a 15 min walk away and has a Woolworths, shops and some great cafes and restaurants. There are 2 hotels nearby, an excellent Italian restaurant, Capello Pizzeria, and a fabulous cafe called Euforia where we sometimes stopped for breakfast on the way to the ferry. Sydney is hilly and Balmain seems to have more than it's share but we rarely used our cars. Communication with the owners was excellent and they were very helpful both before and after we arrived.
