Brenton Smith, director at Sydney architecture firm Bates Smart, is set to flip his Woollahra apartment after its designer makeover.

The apartment in the 1930s Art Deco building, Gainsborough cost Smith $2,325,000 two years ago, following the sale of his 1890s Paddington terrace which fetched exactly the same price.

The Gainsborough apartment purchase ranks as the priciest sale in the Edgecliff Road block. There have been no recent sales in the boutique block of eight.

Smith has installed European oak timber floor throughout the contemporary styled apartment which has over 160 square metres of living space.

It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a covered balcony with northerly views.

Ben Collier at The Agency is handling the marketing campaign.

Smith became a director at Bates Smart in 2017, having joined the company in 2010 as an associate director.

He has focused on a range of project in commercial office, multi residential and hotel and hospitality.

Smith's latest work was in Double Bay where he was the lead designer of 1788, the luxury $100 million SJD project.

The five level Cross Street block was launched last year, with two sales breaking the Double Bay apartment record.

First the 180 sqm penthouse sold for $10.5 million, presenting over $58,000 per square metre, before the near 300 square metre penthouse, an amalgamation on two apartments, sold for $13.75 million.  

Craig Pontey at Ray White Double Bay has the remaining apartments for sale inconjuncyion with Ray White Projects NSW director Eddie Mansour.

There’s 18 of the 29 apartments remaining for sale with prices for the one bedroom offerings starting at $1.69 million.

The two bedders are prices from $3.5 million and the remaining three bedders from $5.2 million. Early works have commenced with completion expected early 2020.
