Historic Landmark

An awe-inspiring transformation of Sydney's first bank built outside of the CBD, this peerless property is a showcase of innovative and dramatic architectural design. Constructed c1875, the reimagined three-storey sandstone landmark has mixed use zoning, encompassing a two-level residence with access from Gladstone Street along with versatile ground-floor commercial space (or self-contained residential accommodation) with excellent exposure to Darling Street.

Two of Sydney's most admired design teams have put their signature stamp of style on the residence, with Coco Republic designing the middle level and Greg Natale designing the glamorous top floor, where an exquisite master suite opens to a terrace taking in magical Sydney Harbour and Bridge views. This incomparable offering fuses gracious traditional features with a palette of beautiful materials and a host of luxuries including an internal lift and parking for five cars. Enjoying a prime location, it presents the ultimate opportunity to live and work in the heart of cosmopolitan Balmain village or lease out the lower level and reap the rewards.
