Nestled amongst the tree tops of Watson’s Bay, this three bedroom home gives us some serious lifestyle envy. From taking in the Sydney harbour views from the rooftop balcony (champagne in hand, of course) or spending lazy afternoons in the sun at Camp Cove Beach, this is a home that celebrates the good life.
OPEN HOUSE AGENT: Unique Estates
The architecture makes the most of its location with ample outdoor terrace spaces, an award-winning rooftop pavilion and extensive open-plan living areas. Design choices embrace the natural surrounds, with floor-to-ceiling windows welcoming the light through the namesake fig trees that surround the home.
A natural aesthetic is also displayed through the subtle materials and greyscale colour palette. The living area is characterised by the classic stone tiling, the Corian and limestone kitchen and sleek Miele appliances, whilst the bedrooms feature 100% wool carpeting and inbuilt shelving. Cast iron details throughout the furnishings and windows add a contemporary edge to the design and find balance between the industrial exterior and the softer interior style.
Even in a city spoilt for choice, Watson’s Bay is beloved for its beaches. Being three minutes walk from Camp Cove Beach and the Watson’s Bay Pools, there will be little reason for you to leave the surrounds throughout the summer months, particularly when local hotspot Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel is in full swing. Known for its bustling Beach Club, the hotel is our go-to for an afternoon spritz. If you’re the type to venture further afield, set off on foot via the nearby National Park Walking Tracks, or grab the commuter ferry for a quick ride to the city.
Then again, you could just enjoy the views from the rooftop, surrounded by greenery and with an ocean breeze blowing in the air – a lifestyle we could certainly get used to.
