On The Market: 39A Carlotta Road In Double Bay Is A Hidden Masterpiece

The terms “one-of-a-kind” and “architectural masterpiece” simply don’t do this week’s edition of On The Market justice. In fact, I’d argue no combination in the English lexicon could adequately explain the feeling of physically standing within the four walls of 39A Carlotta road in Double Bay – which our very own James Want claims to be the “insane” (many times) and the “best house” he’s ever set foot in (see: video below).

From the outside, you’d be forgiven for thinking 39A Carlotta road was rather unassuming. Inside, however, is another story entirely. Showcasing unparalleled craftsmanship, gorgeously bespoke design, and a modern brutalist aesthetic, the devil is well and truly in the details at this Sydney residence.

Five generous bedrooms with custom-built wardrobes, six and a half bathrooms, offering approximately 500 square metres of internal living space… everything you see has been “meticulously sourced” from around the world to ensure it’s of the finest quality. American black walnut paneling, custom joinery, specially commissioned brass + steel finishes, and all.



39A Carlotta road also serves as a masterclass in utilising both open space and natural lighting. Whether it’s the living room, dining room, state-of-the-art kitchen – complete with the obligatory butler’s pantry, WOLF range, Miele appliances, Liebherr fridges, etc. – or any other delightful corner just waiting to be discovered, you’d be hard-pressed to experience any kind of stress here.

Other notable features include the following:

  • Terrazzo-tiled wet edge swimming pool
  • Lower level home office w/ ceiling view of the aforementioned pool
  • Bar
  • Library (“reading nook”)
  • Professional gym
  • Sauna + steam room
  • Monsoon showers
  • Fireplace
  • Hydronic underfloor heating + cooling at every level
  • 2-car garage
  • as well as a separate self-contained living quarters w/ spacious living area, kitchenette, bathroom

As to be expected, a Sydney property of this calibre is (naturally) being handled by the prolific Gavin Rubinstein – head to Ray White TRG for more information on 39A Carlotta Road, Double Bay, and check out our video with the man himself above.
