A newcomer to Balmain, TOGA’s luxury Harbourfront Balmain development hugs the peninsula waterline and offers buyers a taste of the sophisticated village life.

Stretching out after work, wine glass in hand, observing ferries take commuters home is an archetypically Sydney indulgence, usually the preserve of a waterfront restaurant seating on an evening out.

The sleepy peninsula development Harbourfront Balmain offers this prospect in a prime city-fringe spot. Those balancing full-time work, family commitments or simply life’s wearisome routine will spy much more than the waterfront views.

This neighbourhood development, nestled on 150 metres of waterfrontage on the banks of the Parramatta River, looks out to Sydney Harbour capturing views north to Spectacle Island and west to the Iron Cove Bridge.

Only 29 boutique apartments remain for sale – priced from $850,000 – refreshingly reasonable for a slice of city-fringe waterfront.

Half a kilometre or so east of Harbourfront Balmain, leisurely walking distance, Darling Street offers a plentiful supply of artisanal coffee shops, designer children’s clothing boutiques and cosy bakeries.

The combination of waterfront living, charming village appeal and, peaceful surroundings acts as a magnet for downsizers, young professionals and families moving to snap up a city-lifestyle without the hustle and bustle.

Harbourfront Balmain will comprise 121 residences across eight low-rise buildings between three and five-storeys high including one, two and three-bedroom apartments and nine three-bedroom terraces.

Half the buyers at Harbourfront Balmain are a mix of young professionals and families with young children who are moving for inclusive city-centric convenience as well as more space and a suburban feel, notes TOGA General Manager of Sales & Leasing Alex Adams.  

Typically they will trade in an older-style home in the surrounding suburbs - like Rozelle, Drummoyne and Lilyfield - for a terrace home or a two or three-bedroom apartment.

“Buyers are lapping up the waterfront lifestyle with a suburban feel so close to Sydney’s jam-packed CBD,” Mr Adams said.

Designed by Bates Smart, Harbourfront Balmain features luxury amenities including a large private oasis garden, gymnasium, swimming pool and a 150-metre water frontage with impressive views.

“The incredible location, premium amenities and village atmosphere combine to reframe the experiences that shape our everyday lives,” Mr Adams said.  

“When you look at the everyday – living, eating, socialising and rejuvenating – Harbourfront Balmain offers a level of laid-back luxury rare to find so close to the city,” he added.

One, two and three-bedroom apartments include a parking space for each bedroom; a rare extravagance for a city-fringe site.

A homage to bygone factories, Harbourfront Balmain’s unique architecture reimagines the suburb’s industrial roots with aged copper roofscapes and distinctive raked brickwork.

Interiors enhance the waterfront location including reflective materials such as mirrors and tiles to respond to the harbour and maximise light and airy spaces.

An on-site display and sales centre is open Thursday to Sunday 10am to 2pm or by appointment.
