Five levels of luxury hit the market on the Vaucluse cliffs
Five levels of luxury out on the Vaucluse clifftop overlooking the ocean could be yours if you have a cool $8 million budget this winter.
But there’s no chance of feeling the cold in this hot property — the walls of glass let in plenty of morning sun; the pool is gas-heated and there’s even a sauna!
The futuristic duplex — built by the Attena Group and designed by Brian Meyerson of MHN Design Union, with interiors by Poco Designs — has been completed recently.

One half of it, 8A Ray St, has just hit the market via David Malouf and Bill Malouf of LJ Hooker Double Bay.
The home provides a huge amount of living space for a family and five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Mr Meyerson said the striking street facade was modelled on the sandstone cliff faces in the area.
“The geometry picks up different reflections of light throughout the course of the day and
that’s what we wanted to express,” Mr Meyerson said.
“It’s a very big house with a very small frontage to the street so we wanted to make the most of that expression.”
Everything in the home is automated — the lights, airconditioning; the music and the security.
The Gaggenau gas and marble kitchen has been designed and imported from Italy.
There are four marble floating staircases; a Schindler seven-person lift servicing all levels of the property; underfloor heating in the master suite and bathrooms, sauna and utility room and reverse-cycle ducted airconditioning.
And rest easy that you’re doing your bit for the environment — there are solar panels, with Tesla battery to be connected.
