“Absolute Harbourfront Trophy Home With Stunning Views, Private Boathouse” – Alison Coopes

Australia’s most iconic residence, Altona is a unique private estate with a world class deep waterfront family lifestyle. Wrapped in harbour views and northerly sunlight, this magnificent home has Sydney Harbour Bridge as a glorious centre-piece. Indisputably one of a kind, the grand Italianate residence was expertly designed by Dods & Zuccon Architects, with luxurious interiors by Thomas Hamel.
Offering a contemporary take on classical opulence, Altona is advantaged by level entrance from the road and elevator access to all three principal levels of accommodation. Opening all around to balconies, colonnaded verandahs, entertaining terraces and sunny level gardens, there is an impressive choice of formal and informal living and dining rooms, as well as a fully appointed home theatre and a separate large sunny rooftop entertaining deck with a jacuzzi and 360 degree views featuring the Opera House & Bridge, across the main harbour channel to Manly and back to Rose Bay harbour.
There is a versatile study/home office or guest room, two guest powder rooms, plus nine generous bedrooms – all with ensuite bathrooms. The palatial master retreat includes open sitting/study area, spectacular dressing room and limestone double ensuite. The grand oval entrance foyer is Georgian inspired, while the home’s European ambience is enhanced by French doors, high ceilings, Oak parquetry and acres of limestone. Additional features include a commercial stainless steel gas kitchen with butler’s pantry, walk in pantry and granite breakfast island, several separate wet bars, internal laundry, 5 marble fireplaces, ducted air conditioning, ducted vacuum, surround sound, electric awnings, an abundance of built in storage, store rooms, 24 hour monitored security and direct internal access from two remote double garages and a separate loading area.
