Art Deco Glamour Crowning The Iconic Birtley Towers, A Soul-Soothing Sanctuary With Harbour Views

A breathtaking fusion of architectural grandeur and harbour splendour combine in this top floor apartment to create an exceptional city residence but it's the beautiful redesign by Xavier Hinde Interiors that make the apartment a home. Perched on the coveted top floor of Birtley Towers, an Art Deco landmark designed in 1934 by Emil Sodersten, the captivating apartment is embraced by an ever-changing vista with signature arched windows framing wide vistas out over Elizabeth Bay to the harbour and over the rooftops of Paddington. A masterclass in neo-classical panache, the 75sqm apartment's interiors reflect Hollywood's golden age with every detail custom crafted from the French herringbone parquet floors and wainscot panelling to the brass hardware and silk curtains cocooning the apartment in luxury. Set amid gated heritage gardens in a boutique cul-de-sac, Birtley Towers is a tightly held, community minded building just 250m to the fashionable heart of Macleay Street village. Stroll to celebrated restaurants including The Apollo, Cho Cho San and Macleay Street Bistro or wander down to Rushcutters Bay Park and Beare Park and enjoy a cosmopolitan village lifestyle and walk-everywhere convenience just 2km to the CBD.
