They say money can't buy happiness but when you're standing inside # 1701 it certainly feels like it can! The all-class calibre that this 114m2 apartment has been finished to is second to none, with surprises around every corner & an unstated opulence that will stand the test of time. This beautiful sky home has been completely renovated top to bottom & turned into a stunning apartment like nothing else you will see.

Positioned high in the sky on level 17, you're treated to widespread lake, mountain & cityscape views from every window… and trust us, there are a lot of windows! You'll appreciate the level of consideration that's gone into the design & floorplan the moment you walk through the front door, with an entire wall of ceiling height windows & sliding glass doors immediately bathing you in light.

The open plan living space reveals itself with cool Italian tiles underfoot & refined industrial details throughout. Then turning the corner you're struck by the luxury of the monochromatic kitchen that boasts a stunning Spotted oak feature dining table that seamlessly connects to the stone island bench (like something from The Block). And you won't believe the scale of the walk-in pantry until you get lost in there yourself. High quality appliances & cabinetry is present throughout including a built-in LIEBHERR double fridge & soft close drawers.

Through the hallway it's almost too easy to miss the door that leads into the second bedroom as it lies flush with the wall with an exposed concrete-style finish. But the master suite simply cannot be ignored, showcasing space & sumptuousness from the walk-in wardrobe & generously proportioned sleeping quarters to the unique ensuite that encompasses a walk-in shower room that's fitted with dual shower heads including a rainfall shower head. It's like having your own personal spa, available day & night.

The entire apartment is hugged by a covered balcony which is accessible from every room, making alfresco dining or the not-so-occasional wine while watching the sunset even more enticing & easy. We could write about this impressive abode for days but it's best experienced in person, so come & experience it yourself & immerse yourself in its splendour.
