On the historic trail

Behind an original facade from 1908 and framed by other towering, historical buildings, 8 Hickson Road in ‘The Rocks’, with only six residential units, has become one of the most desirable addresses in Sydney. The development of the erstwhile business area into a luxury residential complex was made difficult by many restrictions regarding cultural heritage. The colonisation of the Australian continent began here in ‘The Rocks’ in 1788. Since there is a preservation order on the foundations of the historical houses erected by Europeans, the excavation work on 8 Hickson Road was overseen by an archeologist.


Balcony to the world

The penthouse covers over 380 m² of living area on two floors. The upper floor is exclusively devoted to taking in the unique atmosphere. Architecture, furnishings and décor leave no doubt that only the very best of its kind is to be found at 8 Hickson Road – and yet each detail does not distract from the view of Sydney’s main attraction – the unforgettable harbour panorama and the world-famous Opera House remains unspoiled.


An oasis of peace and tranquility

The large panorama window is flanked on both sides by ‘portholes’ which throw light onto meditative objets d’art, emphasizing the tranquility. The symbols of calmness and wisdom correspond with their surroundings in a remarkable way. At 8 Hickson Road, with its view of the sea, life is quiet and relaxed.


Showcase of wealth

The main bedroom opens up on one side onto a terrace and a breathtaking view of the harbour. The lively hustle and bustle on the water can even be enjoyed whilst taking a bath. Nothing in the secluded rooms at 8 Hickson Road spoils the sensational view and the residents’ privacy.


Culinary delights ‘on the rocks’

The elegant open-plan kitchen with six Miele built-in appliances is part of a fascinatingly simplistic and, in terms of colour, well-matched design concept which fits perfectly into its surroundings. The second of the penthouse’s four terraces lies adjacent to the kitchen.
