Wealthy downsizers on the hunt for ultra-prestige apartments have turned their attention to Neutral Bay, with the lower north shore’s most exclusive luxury development just unveiled.
Wirra, a boutique project of 20 residences boasting sweeping harbour and city skyline views, is the latest blue-chip offering from Podia and Centennial, the prominent team behind some of Australia’s best-known builds.
Meticulous attention to quality and intricate detailing establishes an unprecedented standard in Neutral Bay.
Located high on the crest of Ben Boyd Rd, Atlas Director Michael Coombs says Wirra sets a new benchmark in high-end urban living that appeals to cashed-up empty nesters.
Australia’s population aged 65+ is projected to grow to 6.66 million by 2041 from an estimated 4.31 million in 2021 – an increase of 54%.
“The residences are free-flowing and magnificently appointed, delivering an ultra-refined lifestyle for buyers,” Michael Coombs said.
But for many looking to retire on the lower north shore, moving into a “cookie-cutter” apartment is simply not an option.
“There is a massive volume of local empty nesters who demand the very best that money can buy, and this project delivers on all fronts,” Mr Coombs told Mosman Collective.
“Several key criteria come into play when seeking the ideal home: location, quality, and views. Wirra, however, exceeds every expectation in this regard.”
“The meticulous attention to quality and intricate detailing establishes an unprecedented standard in Neutral Bay,” the prestige property specialist says.
Coombs confirmed several of the apartments have already sold prior to the sales launch.
From lavish garden apartments to crowning penthouses, each three-bedroom residence – ranging in size from 140 sqm to 210 sqm and ranging in price from $4.45 million to $15.5 million – has been carefully thought out by award-winning architects MHNDU, with interiors curated by Richards Stanisich.
“The residences are free-flowing and magnificently appointed, delivering an ultra-refined lifestyle for buyers,” Coombs said.
“Each one boasts vast, house-like proportions that you won’t find in any other development on the lower north shore.”
The price guide for the apartments will be $4.45 to $15 million for the penthouse.
At a special VIP event earlier this week, guests experienced the Wirra development brought to life, in a display suite now open on Belmont Rd.
“The official sales launch hasn’t taken place yet, but I can confirm several Wirra residences have already been sold,” Coombs said, “with just 20 apartments, it’s going to be a case of first in, best dressed.”
Atlas Director Michael Coombs said the Wirra development “sets a new benchmark” for prestige, ultra-luxury living.
Designed for entertaining, apartments will include a grand dining room with a custom-crafted stone/glass bar and travertine double-sided fireplaces. A clever bookcase feature creates a stylish room partition, allowing light and views through, allowing residents to expand the space according to their needs.
