On The Market: This $40 Million Penthouse With Immaculate Views Of Sydney Harbour

801/85 Harrington Street, The Rocks

The phrase “once in a lifetime” gets thrown around a lot in the real estate game, and most of the time, it’s complete rubbish. When it comes to 801/85 Harrington Street, The Rocks, however, there’s the serious temptation to use that near-platitude, simply because it boasts one of Sydney’s most impressive harbour views.

Located in the heart of The Rocks walking distance from Circular Quay, the penthouse of The Harrington Collection building has to be one of the best apartments in central Sydney. As an expansive two-level residence, with direct views of both the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it might not be the largest penthouse on the market, but it’s certainly one of the most desirable.

Looking down on the warm rooftops of nearby heritage buildings, the interior of 801/85 Harrington Street, The Rocks is as exquisite as the views that surround it. Featuring herringbone inlaid oak floors, The Harrington Collection’s recognisable monolithic stone and wonderful lightly-toned joinery around the apartment, its finishings are everything you’d expect in such an elevated residence.
