43A Scotts Road, Kangaroo Valley

Waterfalls, soaring escarpments, bushland abundant with wildlife and birdsong … welcome to the Kangaroo Valley’s stirring, spectacular environment. This offering at 43A Scotts Road is perfectly in tune with its singular surroundings while, beyond, nature’s panorama plays out its ever-changing story. Raine & Horne’s Frank Barker says The Hideaway is true to its name.

“It sits up on a mound, but it’s private and nestled in nicely,” he says. “And while it’s out of the way you’re not out on your own – there’s a nice little community here.”

What we particularly like about this house is its very fine sense of self. It’s simple yet elegant; large enough to accommodate a crew but not sprawling or overblown. There are four bedrooms, all with verdant outlooks, and substantial decking means you can roll out of bed and straight into the lush environment.

The beautiful living and dining areas are surrounded by banks of glass, bringing the dramatic spectacle inside. Out on the land, you get a mix of flat, grassy terraces, framing bushland and garden.

“It’s 12 minutes to town and less than 45 from the coast,” says Barker, who is overseeing the sale of this gem.

5/15 Thornton Street, Darling Point 

Every minute spent in this marvellous tri-level abode, located in the prestigious gated enclave of Hopewood Gardens, is filled with pinch-me moments from day to night.

“The Opera House and Harbour Bridge can be seen from every level, along with spectacular sunsets and city night lights,” the agent says.

“These panoramic views are equally dazzling from the master suite’s free-standing bath and full-width balcony.”

807/57 Upper Pitt Street, Kirribilli

On the market for the first time in almost 50 years, this glorious 1950s apartment would let you call the city’s famous landmarks your neighbours. “It’s the only one in the building that runs the full width, with an enclosed balcony that’s perfect for watching the bustling harbour,” the agent says. “Having front-row seats of the New Year’s Eve fireworks is magnificent, but with views like these, any regular day is magical.”

6 Broderick Street, Balmain

Soak in breathtaking views from this splendid waterfront house crafted in a unique blend of modernist and brutalist designs by acclaimed architects Stuart Whitelaw and Sir Roy Grounds. “The owner feels the house is more in vogue now than it was in the ’70s, with its mix of concrete, glass and timber surrounded by greenery,” the agent says. “They say the sunsets are incredible from the balconies, as is the ability to launch a kayak into the water.”

31 Pacific Road, Palm Beach

It doesn’t take long to see why this one’s a keeper – it’s described as a simple beach house that lets the views do all the talking, cherished by the same family for the past 50 years.

“As you walk down the sandstone steps and into the front door, you’re met with an expansive northerly view up the coastline,” the agent says. “The breezy living-kitchen area opens to the deck, where many long lunches and twilight dinners with family and friends have been had.”

26 Elouera Road, Avalon Beach

Spread out over three luxurious levels, this expertly designed residence spills out to fabulous outdoor spaces, be it the glorious green lawn and pool or the two full-length decks. “It’s so easy to entertain in this home, whether for casual pool parties, garden soirees or family barbecues on the main deck,” says the seller, Vianney Boon. “The clean lines, neutral tones and natural textures perfectly fit the captivating character of Avalon.”

1/22 Mackenzie Street, Lavender Bay

Life is bliss at this harbourside haven set within the Lavender Terraces complex, no matter if you’re home and cosying up by the living room’s log fireplace or taking a stroll to Wendy’s Secret Garden.

“The balcony off the main bedroom overlooks the harbour bridge and the city skyline,” says the seller, Garry Rothwell. “We often watch the cruise ships glide in each morning at dawn and out again as the city lights up at dusk.”
