The revolution changing apartment living

To even refer to the jawdropping homes in this new complex as units, seems almost a crime. This is luxury but on another level.
Is this Sydney’s most luxurious unit complex? To even call the home offerings at this new development as units seems almost a crime, they are so well appointed. Sydney’s most expensive home, the $140m One Sydney Harbour penthouse, is a gasp, unit, sorry apartment/condo. But for its price tag Villia, might offer more luxury per square metre than Sydney has ever seen before. It’s more WOW than OMG. With a price guide ranging from $15m to $20m. Expected to be completed in April to May next year, ‘Villia’ by developer Skyland Group, in partnership with architects Henderson & Co and Brewster Murray, will comprise two penthouse apartments and two garden apartments. Each will have four bedrooms and a designated entertainment area with high-end features as well as a living area and a double lockup garage. “When we were designing this development, we really put a lot of thought into the local residents,” Skyland Group managing partner Travis Su said. “We really wanted to exceed their expectations from every angle.” But here, the designers of Villia leant on the Ancient Greeks and their ‘golden ratio’ “to shape the proportions of the building, the elegant curved forms and the placement of features within the sweeping rooms”.
In short the ‘golden ratio’ promises, no guarantees, the most aesthetically pleasing creation and design possible. From the water features that straddle the floors, to the encased glass garage, which presents the residents’ car, no vehicle, as a piece of art that should be appreciated, to the pool each title boasts, which is more like a Roman Bath, Caesar Augustus would be happy to call his own. The penthouses feature direct access from a glass walled garage which frames the residents car like a work of art, and a glass-bottom pond which allows light to pass between two levels. Other features include natural stone flooring with underfloor heating, integrated Sub-Zero refrigerators, Wolf ovens and home automation. The properties are being offered for sale exclusively through David Malouf, director of Highland Double Bay Malouf and have a price guide ranging from $15m-$20m.
