4 July 2019 Buyers’ interest in the top end of the property market in Sydney remains strong, as seen in the recent enquiries received by Crown Group’s sales team, and the 35 buyer groups who have visited the penthouse at Arc by Crown Group.
This follows the sale in April of a three-bedroom penthouse for $3.28 million at Waterfall by Crown Group in Waterloo, a new development, which will soon be home to one of Australia’s tallest man-made waterfalls and lush tropical gardens.
Crown Group broke a record for the area last year, with the $4.5m sale of a super penthouse set over three levels with a vast 173sqm of internal space and 130sqm of terrace space. Two penthouses are available for sale at Waterfall, and another three at nearby Mastery by Crown Group.
Crown Group Director of Sales Prisca Edwards said demand had remained strong for high-end offerings in the luxury sector of Sydney’s residential property market.
“Prestige buyers at that level are attracted to the sense of privacy, luxury and the exclusive location they get in a penthouse – and that doesn’t ever change, regardless of what is happening in the market,” Mrs Edwards said. “These apartments offer a level of sophistication that goes to the highest level of quality, consideration and detail. Each of these exquisite escapes offers a one of a kind design in an unbeatable location and that is why they are in such high demand.”
The Penthouse for sale at Arc by Crown Group
The penthouse at Arc by Crown Group was completed in late 2018 and contains everything a heart desires, as well as access to the rooftop Horizon Lounge equipped with barbecue and bar facilities, and Crown Group’s signature resort-style pool, jacuzzi and fitness facilities.
Designed by internationally acclaimed Koichi Takada Architects, the level 28 penthouse takes in stunning views of the city in all directions, from each of its three bedrooms, three bathrooms and vast living areas. Extensive natural light creates warm and inviting living and dining spaces, ideal for entertaining. There is plenty of living and storage space as well as two dedicated car bays. An east-facing balcony and a calming water feature encircle this breathtaking penthouse, the only apartment on the building’s top floor.
The kitchen and bathrooms are equipped with Miele appliances, designer tapware, polished stone surfaces, an abundance of storage and bespoke cabinetry. Equipped with home automation, ducted air conditioning, central atrium garden, rooftop water feature and a freestanding tub in the master suite, the apartment has set new benchmarks in architectural excellence and luxury living for Sydney.
“The penthouse at Arc by Crown Group offers the only chance to live in Sydney’s premier address, in its most sought-after new precinct at Our Skittle Place, close to the biggest shopping area in Sydney, to Barangaroo and two blocks from the Louis Vuitton store,” Mrs Edwards said. “It’s the best luxurious inner-city lifestyle you can find in Sydney – but with a slice of New York lifestyle. It is your last chance to secure this spectacular property.”
The selling price for the Arc by Crown Group penthouse has been set at $6.5 million.

“It’s hard to find penthouses where you have everything in the one place – a sophisticated urban lifestyle, surrounded by nature, with a tranquil inner retreat, away from the business of city life,” Mrs Edwards said.
“I think that’s the beauty of it - there’s nothing else like Waterfall and Mastery penthouses in this area. You can take advantage of all the convenience you could ever imagine in such a beautiful location.”
