Top Spring Australia has just sold one of only three top-floor penthouses in its landmark new development, Ode | Double Bay, for a record $24,950,000.
The 311sqm penthouse featuring a 148sqm private roof terrace with spa pool was purchased by a local retired couple who are downsizing from their existing family home and plan to spend their time between a beach house and their new Ode | Double Bay penthouse.
The purchase has surpassed Double Bay’s existing apartment sales record of $16+ million, set in March 2022.
1st City Projects Managing Director, and Ode, Double Bay sales agent Brad Caldwell-Eyles, has been involved with the development since the original architectural design competition. “Ode | Double Bay has always been about an ultra-premium, exclusive product, combining beautiful design with the site’s unique attributes of views and village character,” he says.
This is now the second time 1st City has broken the Double Bay Penthouse record. In March this year, 1st City’s founding partner, Julian Hasemer sold a $16 million Penthouse in William St, Double Bay, creating a new apartment record for the suburb.
“The team was always confident the Ode | Double Bay penthouses, being so supremely special and rare, would likely be some of the first to be sold,” Julian said. “We have just commenced the formal sales campaign and buyers have been aware of the project’s approach and have reached out to secure preliminary details. Ode | Double Bay was always destined to significantly re-set the sales record benchmark for Double Bay. Twenty-five million dollars exceeds the previous record by over 50%.”
