2A West Ave, Darlinghurst

by Dean Berman

A very cool and stylish property in Inner Sydney.

Originally purchased for $840,000 and $1,260,000 as 2 lots (1 residential and 1 commercial) in November 2010.

The property went from a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 carspace to a 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom and 2 carspace.

Achieving Development Application approval in July 2014 to change the use of the ground floor commercial space into 2 studio apartments.

Effectively offering a 4 bedroom apartment and 2 x studios.

The studio’s look like they have been used on Airbnb, providing further rental income for the owners.

Rates seem to have been around $220 per night.

Sold for $4,600,000 by Shannan Whitney and Melinda Antella of Bresic Whitney.

In my opinion this property is a guide on how to design and style. I really really like the kitchen, particularly the cool cabinet colours. Each space has been crafted and styled with great use of colour and light. The studio’s are also fantastic and flow with the feel of the property’s modern and exciting design.
