Sydney's residential scene has never been more eclectic, with homes in all shapes, sizes and styles. Domain looks at five listings that highlight the broad scope of our city's property market.
In a building known as "Tintagel", this 1945 art deco apartment will suit anyone who likes a touch of glamour at home.
The property, which is close to ferry wharf, parks and Double Bay shopping village, has lovely high ceilings, timber-panelled walls, and a balcony that overlooks the moored boats below.
A circa-1875 terrace has had a head-to-toe reboot at this Erskineville five-bedder.
The kitchen is a focal point, with statement lights imported from Italy that hang over a marble benchtop and large, steel-framed doors leading out to the courtyard.
Renovations have also restored the original Kauri floors and fireplaces to their former glory.
Head along to a viewing of the home this weekend before it goes to auction on August 23.
Bubbly and bright
It's easy to be taken in by the cheery facade of this inner-city terrace, with a pale pink door that beckons passers-by.
Inside, a range of design elements add an edge to the surprisingly roomy home.
Walk over rich oak flooring to find the Poly kitchen with stone benchtops, or to the bathrooms with Carrara marble baths and under-floor heating.
