The Gentry, Alexandria, THIRDi Group’s latest residential heritage conversion in the heart of Sydney’s City South is a property of a lifetime offering unique Torrens Titled terraces set to be released this August. It’s set to raise the standard for luxury living, offering both owner-occupiers and astute investors an elite terrace home that will stand the test of time.
The Gentry has completely challenged the Status Quo of the current development landscape – delivering a project with character and soul, celebrating its heritage past and combining this with the latest in design and high-tech living.
The Gentry seamlessly blends the rich history of Alexandria’s industrial past with indulgent details and thoughtful architectural design by the award-winning team at SJB Architects.
SJB’s careful design decisions make the most of natural light throughout, inviting residents and visitors to take in views of the surrounding streetscape and city skyline. This ambient lighting creates a serene, open area that flows seamlessly into the welcoming living space and large outdoor courtyard.
Inside, the stairs, hallway and master bedroom all feature European Oak floors, complemented by the large format concrete styled and porcelain tiles elsewhere. The master bedroom takes over a whole level and includes clever details such as expansive wardrobes with a desk space that can be concealed when not in use.
Kitchens feature extraordinary attention to detail. With integrated Miele appliances, porcelain bench tops, stainless steel splash backs and soft-close drawers, it’s a space truly designed with entertaining family and friends in mind. Joinery features a level of detail uncommon in other developments and residents can choose from two colour schemes to find the palette that most relaxes the senses.
The bathroom is an oasis that combines a minimalist approach with a focus on luxury design details. A private retreat made for unwinding and refreshing, beautiful porcelain tiled floors, timber vanities, open shelving and generously oversized mirrors enhance the space while creating an uncluttered look. Premium fixtures and quality finishes include a freestanding bath, dual shower and dual basin.
Rooftop spaces at The Gentry are unlike anything currently available within the inner city. Because these homes are Torrens Titled, each terrace comes complete with its own rooftop private cinema, luxury spa and a built-in kitchenette with barbeque. This stunning space is the ultimate retreat where you can unwind, entertain and take in the expansive city or district views.
All terraces also include an oversized lock-up garage with room for one vehicle, two bicycles and an extensive wine cellar. Not that you’ll need the car, The Gentry’s enviable location at the very edge of Sydney’s vibrant city centre means everything is on your doorstep.
When it comes to transport connections, The Gentry residents are spoiled for choice. Green Square and a 7-minute walk to the station as well as direct bus routes mean fast, regular access into the CBD, while the Airport Link means domestic and international terminals are less than 15 minutes away by train.
Alexandria is home to some of Sydney’s best-kept culinary secrets. Up-and-coming cafés are now a fixture, while modern pubs and restaurants to suit every style and budget are all within easy reach, including The Grounds of Alexandria, Saporium, Danks Street Produce Merchants, Three Blue Ducks and Bourke St Bakery. There’s also an eclectic mix of specialty design stores, with Peters of Kensington, Domayne, the Carriageworks arts hub, Eveleigh Farmers’ Market and Redfern Night Markets within easy reach.
This close to the CBD, new Alexandria residents will find calm green spaces where the community gathers to work out, wander or simply relax, including Alexandria Park and the 40-hectare Sydney Park.
Brand Partners for the development include SJB, Lawless Myerson, Miele, SMEG, Coco Republic, TESLA, Marc & Phillip and Archie Rose (just to name a few) all working together to deliver the ultimate purchaser experience well after settlement of the properties in 2018.
TESLA will provide twenty-first century energy storage technology to each terrace, while Google Home automation delivering the latest in voice activated features – for instance, the developer is currently in talks with a number of Australia’s leading coffee producers to install voice activated coffee machines – It’s this sort of #innovativebrilliance that Thirdi Group is renowned for.
The Gentry’s size, design features and architectural attention to detail represent an opportunity unlikely to be repeated in Alexandria. Through its unique layout, luxury inclusions and respect for classic design principles, the development brings the suburb’s past into contact with its thriving present to create one of the best residential developments anywhere in Sydney.
The Gentry will launch on August 17. Construction will commence this October 2017 with completion expected at the end of December 2018.
