The timing could not have been better for many Newcastle apartments which have hit the market in recent weeks.

With an influx of people headed to the city an international television coverage for Supercars weekend, the city will be well and truly on show.

Century 21’s Dean Pinter is marketing a tenth-floor apartment in the McCaffrey Wing of the Royal Apartments.

The residence features three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two car spaces and has a large deck with views to Nobbys headland, Newcastle beach and Christ Church Cathedral.

The apartment is at 26/7 King Street.

“Within that building, floor 10 is a much bigger floor than those higher,” Mr Pinter said.

“This apartment has a 90 square metre balcony, and size is probably the biggest feature of it. In total, including the balcony, it is well in excess of 200 square metres.

“Because of the way it is positioned it has views from north to south and, in my opinion, it is still the best building in Newcastle and apartments there are pretty tightly held.”

The complex is on top of the Novotel which means the apartment also has room service.

It also has an onsite gymnasium and heated spa pool.

The apartment is being marketed with a price guide of $2.4 million to $2.6 million.
