An award-winning masterpiece and city fringe architectural landmark. The HQ of architectural firm Smart Design Studio and home of William Smart & John Adcock is a multi-layered mixed-use adaptation of two meticulously restored historic buildings.
Offering exceptional versatility and a multitude of possible configurations, such as a full commercial HQ or a mixture of commercial and residential or one redeveloped as one lavish home, the choice is yours.
This unique north-facing commercial and residential development comprises of 2 levels flexible and functional office interiors and basement, as well as a sublime two-bedroom rooftop penthouse with heritage stables at the rear with a combined total area of 640sqm.
The ground floor and first level offer a perfect working environment with cross-ventilation, north-facing orientation and an abundance of natural light. Beautifully fitted with modern, integrated joinery and terracotta floors it features a sunny courtyard between the office and rear stables which provides a great breakout area and visual relief. The courtyard has an electric security sliding gate with parking for one car and bikes.
The rear Stables has its own independent access/address to Ridge Street and has been meticulously restored to feature original character ceilings, floor structure and sandstone walls. Fully self-contained with stainless steel/ laminate kitchen, integrated appliances and gas cooktop. Sadler stone concrete tiles and underfloor heating feature on the ground floor and black wooden floors on L1.
The apartment’s floorplan is simple with the living and sleeping spaces separated by an island pod, with concealed service spaces including bathrooms, kitchen & bedroom storage. The apartment is surprisingly private and green: with large bi-fold doors which seamlessly open onto sunny balconies overlooking a heritage church and tree-lined Bourke and Ridge Streets.
Comprising of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and concealed study area, no expense has been spared in this property. Details include underfloor heating, integrated Bose system, Miele appliances, CBUS control for lighting and blinds, intercom with electric door control, travertine floors and terracotta tiling in the bathrooms.
The brightness and connection to the outdoors is one of the most notable features of this property; a building that has been the recipient of several Architecture and Interior Design awards.
It’s rare to find a property of this size and calibre in this location; which is about to be transformed by the redevelopment of the Surry Hills Shopping Centre new light rail that will be operational early 2019.
