The epitome of elegance and style, this unique penthouse, located in the Pearl apartments, soaks in jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the Kingston Foreshore Precinct and beyond.

Described as “an architectural triumph” by Independent Property Group sales agent Phil Smith, 10/57 Eyre Street Kingston boasts 223 metres of sophisticated living space with the main living area featuring a full length curved window framing views of Norgrove Park, the vibrant foreshore and the distant hills beyond Canberra’s borders.

“It’s like your own living, breathing landscape painting,” Phil said.

Spacious and luxurious, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse offers a lifestyle of sophisticated living just a short stroll from Lake Burley Griffin and the iconic Kingston Foreshore with its chic restaurants and cafes.

Constructed in 2013 and set over the entire fifth floor, Phil says the apartment is contemporary and private.

“The subtly curved architecture creates a unique and interesting floorplan; it’s not your cookie-cutter design,” he said.

“It’s the jewel of the crown in the iconic Pearl development.”

As you enter the apartment via its own private lift foyer, you are immediately drawn towards the sheer size of the living room, the light and spectacular outlook through the glazed curved feature wall.

“When you swing the doors open, it feels like a grand unveiling of a contemporary artwork,” he said.

“It’s really interesting, and having a circular design influence, every room has a different outlook and its own unique character – whether it’s views of the city and Black Mountain, Mount Ainslie, Parliament House and the leafy Inner South or the foreshore precinct.”

When you can peel your eyes away from the views, Phil says the space and size of the apartment is sure to impress.

“Every room is very generous proportion-wise,” he said.

The kitchen features best of the best Gaggenau appliances, granite benchtops, as well as an integrated coffee machine and wine fridge.

Adjoining the kitchen, the second living area opens onto the large private balcony, with sliding doors that can be rolled back to create a seamless alfresco living area.

“It’s a really special entertaining area where you can sit on your own private level, perched above other properties around you, taking in views of Parliament House and the complex’s elaborate internal gardens,” Phil said

“Of a night time it’s so peaceful with the city lights and looking out to Black Mountain Tower – it’s all your own personal space to enjoy with friends and family.”

The master suite is spacious and includes custom-made in-built wardrobes, high ceilings, a stylish and modern ensuite with both shower and bath and features full-length windows taking in another breathtaking vista over the Inner South’s suburban landscape.

Bedrooms two and three each have ensuite bathrooms, generous cupboard space and individual outlooks.

Completing this amazing home is a full-sized laundry, with an eight-door linen press and storage, plus a triple lock-up garage, with plenty of room to store pushbikes, a boat or a caravan.

With a price tag of $2.5 million-plus, the penthouse is located in a five-level apartment building with a communal swimming pool, barbecue areas and gymnasium, which Phil says is “one of the most impressive gyms you’ll see in a modern residential apartment complex”.

The penthouse would suit a professional couple, a modern family or downsizers who don’t want to compromise on quality and space, with lift access from the garage, an abundance of storage plus a video security system.

After visiting the buzzing Kingston Foreshore Precinct over the weekend, Phil says it’s the ideal area to get out and exercise in the fresh air, meet friends for coffee or take in the nightlife.

“It’s a happy place, where everyone is active, walking and engaging with friends – it’s that type of area,” he said.

“You can just walk out the door of one of the best penthouses in the region and you’re in the heart of Canberra’s premier suburb.”
