'New York'-style apartment in former Adamstown infants school listed for sale

A ‘New York-style’ apartment in the refurbished former Adamstown Public School Infants Department has been listed for sale.

There are just nine homes in what marketing agent Mike Flook, of Robinson Property, described as a “unique” complex at 63 Narara Road.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has 157 square metres of internal space.

It has timber floors, soaring 3.88-metre ceilings, oversized windows, split-level living and dining and views across the city.

“We sold them when they were first done and the thing I like about them is they’ve got a New York-style theme with high ceilings, split level and a massive big balcony,” Mr Flook said.

“They also have that more homely style feel that’s sometimes not evident in more modern apartments.

“It has a lovely aspect, looking back out over the city, and the location is central. It’s close to Westfield Kotara and you’re at the beach in under 10 minutes.”

The apartment has been listed with a price guide of $635,000 to $675,000.

Robinson Property are also marketing a two-bedroom unit within walking distance to Merewether beach and Dixon Park.

The second-floor property at 30 Berner Street is expected to attract first home buyers and investors with a price guide of $535,000 to $575,000. It is open for inspection at 10.30am on Saturday.
