A rare collection of opulent homes right next to Sydney's CBD| 26 Sep 2019
As Australia’s most popular metropolis, Sydney has made the top trio in the world’s most livable cities, while its latest top property auction clearance rate in two and a half years has caught investors’ attention.
Overlooking the dual icons of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, The Rocks is a vibrant pocket of cafes, restaurants, shops, weekend market stalls, museums and galleries set against a backdrop of historic buildings and passageways. It is also the ideal location to watch the spectacular New Year fireworks.
Full of character and oozing old world charm, this opulent area now welcomes admirers to a rare collection of luxury homes that includes terrace homes, harbor penthouses and majestic residences.
As the only residential project in the area that has gained government approval in the last seven years, The Harrington Collection comprises grand residences, together with boutique residences in the Cambridge Collection, terraces in the Gloucester Collection, and The Bakers Terrace, which was given heritage listing for its historical and scientific cultural values. This three-bedroom heritage home is an esteemed Trophy property.
Priding itself on elegant and opulent finishes, the Harrington Collection is designed by the award-winning Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp Architects (FJMT). Inspired by its surroundings, the architecture represents a collection of carefully proportioned residences. It is enhanced by palettes of complementary materials selected with sensitivity to the site’s locality and demonstrates a timeless aesthetics that resonates with the character of the built form in The Rocks.
Echoing the warm tones of local stone, the ‘rock’ palette features light timber joinery and flooring. A natural white materiality with golden tones is used in the kitchens and bathrooms to add warmth and subtle luxury. Within the bathrooms, a second stone application of pale grey is introduced as the backdrop to the beautiful pale masonry frames of the vanity and storage.
In sync with Sydney’s coastal setting, the ‘harbour’ palette features a serene, cool tone for the timber joinery. Light coloured timber detailing is crisp with a sophisticated white and silver grey masonry reminiscent of water in motion. Both palettes are elevated with the introduction of sleek metallic finishes to robes, kitchen handles and luxurious fixtures throughout.
Various configurations are available in the Harrington and the Cambridge collections with the majority including premium outdoor terraces that feature a spa and landscaping for outdoor entertaining.
Boasting a premium luxury style, the Harrington Collection features extensive wardrobes and storage throughout all homes including dressing table; generously proportioned living and dining areas with large floor to ceiling glazing directly connecting entertaining-sized balconies; separate laundry and powder room; and free-standing bathtub and double basins in the master ensuites.
Gourmands will be overjoyed with the large kitchen island bench; a sectioned scullery area that adjoins the kitchen; a wolf oven and cooktop; and Subzero refrigerators and wine fridges. The unique interior design language of The Rocks’ heritage buildings are articulated in stone detailing in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Whilst many of The Rocks’ original winding pathways have sadly been lost, The Harrington Collection reinstate paths and spaces reminiscent of the past, by creating charming new places to appreciate and explore.
This vibrant area will reflect the true village character of The Rocks. With an essential ingredient providore, a café and landscaped al fresco dining, this unique setting will sit at the very heart of The Harrington address.
The Harrington Collection is a mere 8-minute walk to the heart of Sydney’s central business district, and a short stroll to Circular Quay Ferry Wharf and Circular Quay Station.
