A nod to Art Deco in posh Paddington

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
The Glass House is an apartment in the Paddington neighborhood of downtown Sydney. With design by Nina Maya Interiors in collaboration with local suppliers, this contemporary masterwork offers an experience of this Australian metropolis while placing you within minutes of its most iconic attractions. The apartment features an outdoor lounge and spacious interior living areas, appointed with features for cooking and entertainment. Three bedroom suites (two with king beds and one with a queen) accommodate families and groups of friends, up to six in size.
The architecture of the Glass House features open-concept layouts on both floors and abundant natural light. A wide vanishing wall opens between the interior living areas and the courtyard lounge, creating an expansive indoor/outdoor space for gatherings or relaxation. Sip Australian wine in the lounge, or kindle a fire on cool evenings and relax with your favorite TV shows. Prepare delicious meals at the barbecue grill or in the fully equipped kitchen, and dine together around the table for six.
The kitchen is like a work of fine art unto itself, with a stove and island bar made of green marble. The home is equipped with security, electronic media, and smart home features, including Apple TV and Alexa voice control, and features air conditioning and underfloor heating. Gallery-worthy artwork is displayed in every room.
A floating staircase leads to the upper-level bedrooms. All guest suites feature designer headboards, upholstered walls, appointed robes, and ensuite bathrooms.
From the villa’s location at 31 Boundary St., in the neighborhood of Paddington, you're about three or four kilometers from Sydney Opera House and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and within easy reach of several famous beaches, including Tamarama, Bondi, and Coogee. Proximity to Sydney Airport makes the Glass House an ideal vacation rental for destination wedding guests or easy weekend escapes.
