Property Of The Week: 20 Thompson Street, Tamarama, NSW

A contemporary slice of Sydney’s beachside glamour.

By Terry Christodoulou 11/02/2022

Superlatives are often bandied around in property with little substance. Yet here, in the highly sought-after cul-de-sac end of Thompson Street, overlooking the glamorous Tamarama beach comes a truly unique home.

Designed by award-winning architect Andrew Baroukh, this 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 5-car parking home is a rare opportunity to secure a contemporary family sanctuary, minutes from Sydney’s most covetable waters.

Set atop 525sqm of level beachside land, the three-storey home blends seamlessly into its natural surrounds through the extravagant use of glass showing both the coastal views and the sandstone on which the home is built. This is paired with the heady use of limestone floors — fully heated throughout the home — and exposed concrete beams creating a light, calming, neutral palette in the residence.

The open, gleaming upper level of the home sees the seamlessly connected living, dining and kitchen spaces which open out to the terrace via an astonishing 3-metre tall, curved sliding door custom-engineered by A&G and built to cyclone standards.

The kitchen is fitted with custom joinery and sees European appliances and a 5-metre single piece stainless steel benchtop.

The home’s lowest level sees a double lock-up garage paired with a laundry and wet bar (complete with wine storage), a living area and spare bedroom. It’s here one side of the property is flanked by a glass feature that showcases the sandstone.

This area leads outside to the unique garden with level lawn and sundrenched saltwater heated pool, covered entertaining area and built-in barbecue.

From here one can either take the Domus lift, which services each floor, or the polished concrete staircase to the entry-level which houses the accommodation.

It’s here one finds the master suite which is complete by an expansive ensuite, finished with Boyd Alternatives bathtub and vanities and custom joinery that extends into the walk-in dresser.

Further, this level sees another bathroom, a study and two bedrooms.  While other mod-cons include a ducted vacuum system, zoned air conditioning and a Sonos sound system throughout the home.

The listing is with Goodyer Real Estate’s Pauline Goodyer (+61 411 521 888), and while there is no price guide given for this home Robb Report understands the recent sale of the 27 Thompson Street for $25.5 million is being referenced.
