3 min readWhen we saw this property, we knew it was something special. It’s uniqueness was captivating and it only got more intriguing as we scrolled through the gorgeous photos. Why was it so captivating? It’s very rare you find a home that keeps its vintage look and appeal, whilst improving the living offerings to the owners. But that is exactly what 22 White Street, Balmain, NSW does.

Featuring glorious water views to Birkenhead Point and Cockatoo Island, you are guaranteed that you will always have natural light flooding the living areas, and highlighting the vintage interior design.

The interiors have been meticulously customised for luxurious living while spacious outdoor areas include boating facilities that are suitable for all tides. This is the kind of home that would almost make it mandatory to have a boat, as your private access to the water is something that is incredibly rare.

Where do I sleep?

The master suite has been built on its own private level, ensuring that you will have the utmost in privacy. The finishes upstairs are just as immaculate as the ones downstairs, with the master suits having a jet spa bathroom, media retreat and private terrace with glittering water views.

There are two more bedrooms on the lower level which have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the rear garden ensuring that this is the perfect family home, providing large living areas, and privacy at the same time.

Where do I play? 

The ‘Wave House’ is unique in that it has an open living zone with a granite fireplace and soaring ceilings. The first thing you will notice is the gorgeous contrast between new and old world. If cooking is your thing, expect to want to play in the kitchen as it is served by a sleek European modern kitchen with gas cooking and a walk-in pantry. But if being outside and keeping active is more your idea of playing then your private shoreline gardens with an in-ground pool, boatshed and a jetty with pontoon and mooring will provide plenty of options to keep busy.

What else does the ‘Wave House’ provide?

If you are an art connoisseur, the ‘Wave House’ provides the ability for you to never have to purchase another piece of art, as you will have a masterpiece to observe daily. ‘Wave House’ is complimented with Walk/built-in robes, a stylish powder room, integrated sound and bespoke lighting offer the height of practicality.

There is plenty of living space, as mentioned, with 800sqm provided with two street frontages. It has excellent cross ventilation, under floor heating and has a freestanding double garage with access to Tilba Avenue. Just a pleasant walk away, Darling Street shops, boutiques and cafes provide an exceptional lifestyle with rapid access to the CBD

Really, what more could you ask for?
