Property Of The Week: 123 Macquarie Street, Sydney, NSW

Secure Australian actress Cate Blanchett’s stylish abode.

By Terry Christodoulou 03/07/2020

Set in Sydney CBD’s landmark Astor building, this one of a kind residence – owned by Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett – is the largest apartment of the Macquarie Street building.

Initially built in 1929 as three separate apartments, it was configured (illegally) by entertainer Barry Humphries into a two-storey spread before businessman Mark Bouris purchased the pad and adjoining property to create the approx. 400sqm, 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 2-parking home it is today.

Walking distance to the Sydney Opera House, ferries and harbourside dining, the apartment is wrapped in world-class views, enjoying vistas of Sydney Harbour and the Royal Botanic Garden.

On the main floor, the high ceilings and deep windows fill the space with light, accentuating the clean styling of the timber floors, custom cabinetry and marble details across a large formal living and dining room.

Here lands a commercial-grade chef’s kitchen with stainless steel fittings alongside a large casual living area that comes with a projector and seating – for a cinematic experience – two bedrooms and the main bathroom, replete with marble flooring and tiles and a twin shower.

Guided upstairs by the semi-spiral staircase sees you arrive in the master suite complete with its own study, a large walk-in-robe, dressing room and ensuite along with two further bedrooms and a bathroom completing the floor.

The building is privy to a live-in residential manager, double secure parking and an expansive rooftop terrace with more incredible vantage points of the city.

The property is listed with Ken Jacobs (+61 407 190 152) of Christie’s International Real Estate, price guide $12 million.
