Epping in Sydney's north has a new apartment price record, after a two-storey penthouse at The Langston sold for $2.75 million after just a week on the market.

The apartment crowning the triple-tower development was purchased by a local buyer.

The north-east facing three-bedroom plus study residence sits atop Langston Tower, the development’s first release and the tallest of three towers at The Langston, which has been approved for 463 apartments across buildings of 19, 24 and 29 storeys.

The record-setting penthouse apartment spans floors 27 and 28 of Langston Tower and has uninterrupted vistas of the Sydney CBD and Harbour Bridge from a height of 194m above sea level.

The apartment also features three bathrooms, a powder room, a grand double-height entry, a bespoke kitchen design with Italian porcelain benches, Smeg appliances and fully ducted air-conditioning.

It spans over 160 sqm including exterior living spaces which are provided across two large terraces, one on each level.

The penthouse sale represents one of only a handful of exclusive two-level residences in Langston Tower, with another south-east facing penthouse apartment also selling for a price of $2.5 million, confirming the high level of market interest in The Langston.

Some 40 apartments sold in the first two weeks, the most popular product being one and two-bedroom apartments.

Epping Train Station is only 50 metres away, so residents will enjoy access to city-bound train services every four minutes during peak periods, once the Sydney Metro North West opens for business in 2019.

The project is offering a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with prices starting from $650,000.

The Langston will include nearly 1,700sqm of ground level retail space.

Above the ground plane will sit a podium level incorporating over 1,900sqm of private, lush green space – designed by award-winning landscape architects Arcadia – that connects the development to its surrounding context.

Meanwhile pedestrian links will feature throughout the site, connecting The Langston with Pembroke Park to the east, the council’s public library and other recreational facilities, which will revitalise the eastern side of the train station.

Works on The Langston are scheduled to commence in early 2019. 

Epping has just been ranked Sydney’s most liveable suburb in PwC’s May 2018 CityPulse Sydney report, which identifies the areas of Greater Sydney that offer the best access to transport, housing, health services, employment and education.
