Editorial by Julia Hughes Photos supplied If you're lucky enough to settle in Bellevue Hill, chances are you will never leave. With its tree-lined streets, heritage mansions and expansive harbour views, Bellevue Hill has a quiet charm and sense of calm that's increasingly hard to find anywhere else in Sydney " and remarkable given the close proximity to Bondi Beach. This is the sentiment behind developer Le Hunte Properties' Belle Residences. The six new three-bedroom luxury apartments located on the corner of O'Sullivan Road and Boronia Avenue in Bellevue Hill have been designed with a specific owner-occupier in mind, who probably won't have to move far. "In that area there are a lot of older couples living in large family homes who are looking to downsize but want to remain in the East," says CBRE Residential Director Murray Wood. 233_osullivan_interior_looking_out_final "Most of the enquiries so far have been from locals in this situation, or couples currently living on the North Shore or places like Balmain who want to move East because of the lifestyle," he says. In terms of lifestyle, Bellevue Hill is hard to beat " great restaurants and cafes, Rose Bay with its yachts and ferry wharf, and the rolling slopes of The Royal Sydney and Woollahra Golf Clubs. And only ten minutes from Australia's most famous beach. Like the suburb it resides in, Belle Residences design is sophisticated, with a sense of understated luxury. Each apartment's living space looks out towards lush mature trees, with swathes of natural light coming through the floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a garden or balcony. There's a spacious ambience to this quiet retreat, with each home screened from the street. Along Boronia Road, the building"¨r rises over a slight slope " the resulting split-level design gives each residence its own private entryway. 233_bath_final Architect Michael Hay took inspiration from classic modernist architecture and added a contemporary edge. The exterior makes a bold impression with its clean lines and right angles, softened with glass, natural colours and timber accents so it fits seamlessly in its setting. Thanks to interior designer Lawless & Meyerson inside Belle Residences the vibe is "relaxed luxury". Travertine or oak floorings are matched with a warm grey colour palette, creating a soft and welcoming space punctuated with subtle textural surprises " such as stone mosaic tiles and dark bronze fixtures and fittings. A marble island bench and integrated Miele appliances extend the luxury to the kitchen. "It's a very calm palate," says designer Jo Lawless. "We've played with textures, timber and stone to create a tranquil setting that complements the area. "The same natural palette and dark bronze fittings are carried throughout the apartment for a cohesiveness that fosters calm and relaxation," she says, "Belle Residences is exactly what affluent empty nesters are looking for " lots of space and the quintessential eastern suburbs lifestyle," Mr Wood says. 233_ext_final "Bellevue Hill is slightly removed from the Sydney rush and once you're in that part of the world you don't really need to leave." Construction of Belle Residences commences in 2017 with completion expected mid-2019.
